Welcome to 6B !

Welcome to a new school year and to our class blog. It has been a wonderful welcome back to Greenleaf after a few years away, and I’m thrilled to see so many familiar faces in both the hallways and in our very own classroom.

On our blog, we’ll be posting ‘need to know’ information, reminders, and highlights of our learning activities throughout the year. Subscribing on the right hand side is a great way to be notified of our posts.  You may notice unfamiliar posts from my previous class. This is because I’ve decided to just change the name and continue on with the same site.  

In addition to the blog, we will continue to use agendas. Students all received theirs on the first day containing all those fun forms to fill in! Students will travel to each class with their agendas, so all teachers can  use them as a communication tool. Please check the agendas on a regular basis.

Speaking of fun forms! Please return Emergency Contacts and Health information, as well as photo consent, ASAP. Thank you for your help!

You were also sent a paper copy of the school newsletter for September and can subscribe for future newsletters at

Little did I know when I accepted this Gr. 6 position I’d be ‘camping’ in September!!  Ms. Steinberg has been very busy preparing notes for students who are signed up to go to Wanakita AND for Gr. 6  students new to our school. Those forms were sent home today. The trip is coming up VERY SOON! (Tuesday, September 19- Friday, September 22) She has posted the following information on her class blog as well:

I will be sending home this week trip forms for parents to complete. There will also be another copy of a packing list. I will let you know of  balances owed and any forms that still need to be completed.  Remaining balances will include the bus costs, and payments not made in June.  Please return all forms as soon as possible, at the latest by Tuesday, September 12. If you have not done so already, it is extremely important that I am made aware of any food allergies or diet requirements immediately, so that Wanakita is prepared and able to accommodate them.   New students are also welcome to come on the trip; please get in touch with any questions and return forms as soon as possible.   Please note that there will be class and activities planned for students who are staying at school that week.

Sincerely, Ms. Steinberg

I’m looking forward to meeting you at the “Meet the Teacher” night on Thursday, September 14, 5:30-7:00. In addition, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

I look forward to working with you and your children, and, sharing our days with you via our blog.

Ms. R. Urfey
