Reminders for May!

Hi Grade 3 Parents!

We have quite a few things coming up in the last few days of May. Please read this blog post closely!

Friday, May 19th – Dress Down Day
Bring your loonies and toonies!


Shavuot is Coming!
Bring it items for the Ottawa Kosher Food Bank

We are making a dairy cookbook!
OJCS is continuing the Shavuot tradition of creating a dairy cookbook! If you have a delicious, dairy, breakfast recipe, we want it!! Please email the recipe to Morah Lianna ( as soon as possible! If you are taking it from another cookbook or blog, please cite the source!

גַּן הַחַיּוֹת שֶׁל כִּתָּה ג

As we were transitioning out of General Studies earlier this week, Morah Lianna said “We need to clean up this classroom before Morah Sigal starts teaching… It looks like a ZOO in here!”

… and Morah Sigal got inspired! Let’s make a zoo!

First, we had to pick an animal. Then, we searched for facts about the animal. Some examples included; What do gorillas eat? How many types of monkeys are there? What climate do snow leopards live in? What do red wolves eat? Where do pigs live?

After gathering our information, we made these posters!


We had a lot of fun!!

Blogging about Blogging!

Shalom Parents,

You might have noticed a special letter in your child’s backpack today about…. BLOGFOLIOS!

We are SO very excited to launch Student Blogfolios in Grade 3 for term 3 of this school year. The blogfolio will stay with your child through their years at OJCS and grow as they add posts from all of their classes!

Below is a PDF of the letter explaining Blogfolios, along with the various options for you to choose. Please fill out the permission slip for your child’s blogfolio and return it by Wednesday, March 22nd.
(please note: there was a typo in the permission form that was sent home, but it has been corrected on the document below)
