Principal's Message

Online Learning

​Dear CJP Families
The past few weeks have been a roller coaster ride for each and every one of us. A ride that has just begun I suspect. We are indeed living in unprecedented times; however, I have great hope if we take care of ourselves and each other, we can successfully tackle this challenge. For the foreseeable future, we will delve into the world of online learning.
Our teachers are on a very steep learning curve working to provide learning opportunities and activities that will begin this week. For much of Monday, March 30, teachers will be involved in virtual meetings, planning together in grade teams for the first few days of lessons and assignments. This will all be rolled out to students shortly.
The following tentative timeline will assist families in your planning to take up this work at home:
Monday and Tuesday, March 30-31 your child’s homeroom teacher and guided reading teacher will connect via email or phone with you to discuss your child’s access to technology at home, including access to a computer and the internet. We are making a plan to address the needs of students without access to technology and to determine how to support students who prefer to print their own packages or who prefer to pick up paper packages from the school. Teachers will also ask you how you and your family are doing and encourage you to connect with wellness supports and resources available within and beyond the CBE. When teachers call, their number may come up as ‘Unknown’ or ‘ID Blocked’ as many of our teachers will be calling from personal devices as they work from home. Please ensure you answer those calls today!
To prepare for on-line learning, students will need to know their CBE Student Number, their CBE email and their email password. If your childe does not have this information, please ask your child’s teacher to provide it when they call.
Wednesday, April 1 your child’s teachers will connect with you via e-mail and school messenger to let you know how they will provide course materials and the best way to reach them if you or your child have questions. Your child’s teachers will also provide you with more information about what you can expect from them in terms of assignments, how to submit any work, and resources and supports you and your child can use to support their learning at home. Consistency in platform choice by all of your child’s teachers is something we are striving for. To that end, we will be using Google tools to advance our on-line learning. This will be supplemented by the use of several on-line tools, APPs, and websites.
As a system, we are expected to align with the guidelines shared by Alberta Education for continuity of learning and content delivery by division. Specifically, that content delivery for each grade is broken down as follows:
Kindergarten – Grade 3
· Education content will focus on language/literacy and mathematics/numeracy outcomes of the provincial curriculum.
· Teachers will assign an average of five hours of work per student per week, and will be expected to work with their students and parents on the delivery of these materials.
Grade 4 – Grade 6
· Education content will continue to focus on language/literacy and mathematics/numeracy outcomes, and there will be opportunity to incorporate science and social studies outcomes through cross-curricular learning.
· Teachers will assign an average of five hours of work per student per week, and will be expected to work with their students and parents on the delivery of these materials.
I would also strongly recommend that parents schedule at least 20-30 minutes of reading per day in addition to this schedule. Parents may want to supplement student learning by providing their children with additional resources. The following provincial resources are available to parents: · – more than 4,000 digital resources aligned with Alberta’s K-12 curriculum. · My Child’s Learning: A Parent Resource - provides parents with information specific to each grade level.
We are very excited with the prospect of providing ongoing learning opportunities for our students. Missing our students in the building was very difficult, but we look forward to reconnecting with students and families. Please look forward to receiving ongoing messages from teachers and administration in the days to come.
Keep safe,
Dr. Bettesworth and Ms. Sharpe
