LEARNING AND GROWING TOGETHER


IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PARENTS

Subject: 2020-2021 School Bell Times 

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

As communicated on May 15, the CBE is making adjustments to the start (entry) and end (dismissal) times of the school day at some CBE schools for the 2020-21 school year. We are making these plans for the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, however, the re-opening of schools is based on recommendations of the government. Re-entry plans have not been finalized. 

For the 2020-21 school year, our school hours will be:

Grades 1 - 5

Monday – Thursday Entry Time:  8:00 AM

Monday – Thursday Dismissal Time: 2:40 PM

Friday Entry Time:  8:00 AM

Friday DISMISSAL TIME 12:00 PM

Kindergarten A.M.

Monday – Friday ENTRY TIME - 8:00 AM

Monday – Friday DISMISSAL TIME – 10:50 AM

Lunch Time hours:  11:20 – 12:00 PM

School hours continue to be aligned at all schools that use transportation services to optimize transportation services. These changes are one part of the CBE’s efforts to develop equitable, sustainable, and coherent transportation service for all CBE students. 

We know that this change will have an impact on many families. By informing you before the end of this school year, we hope you are able to make the necessary adjustments to your routines and make any required childcare arrangements before the start of the 2020-21 school year. I would like to thank you for your patience and support. We look forward to a great year in learning together next year! 

 

Thank you, 

Cindy Palmer, Principal

Online Learning Continues!

We will be continuing to work on Google Classroom and learning in this new way together. You can find our google classroom by signing into your google account and clicking on the 9 squares in the top right corner and clicking the Classroom button. 

Every Wednesday I will be emailing out new weekly learning plans at 9am as well as posting them on our Google Classroom alongside our weekly assignments. 

Every Thursday at 1:30pm we will have our Google Meets and I look forward to seeing all of you this upcoming week. Email me if you need any help logging into our google meet. 



NOTICE FOR PARENTS

Yesterday a system-wide email was sent to you by SchoolMessenger that provided families with interim K-9 resources and activities to engage in for the time prior to the scheduled spring break. You can access the resources HERE.

On this webpage, CBE has collected ideas and activities to support active learning across the disciplines. These activities are easy to do at home using common materials and are engaging for students and families.  

In addition, here are some other suggestions that students in Grade One could be doing to keep up with their learning at home:

  •  Read for 20 minutes each day.  Please see the LINKS document on the right hand side of our website to access more reading websites online and for all student login information.
  • Write in a journal- one or two sentences everyday about any topic they would like. You can write about things you are doing at home or I have attached a document on the right hand side with 25 opinion writing prompts.
  • Learn about a new animal that interests you and research some facts about the animal.  Draw a picture of it and try to label the animal's parts by sounding out the words.  You could also draw a picture of where the animal lives or try and build a habitat for the animal.
  • Make a pattern out of things from around your house. For example- make a pattern on your dining table out of different kinds of cereal.
  • Try a new recipe together or bake something. Let your child help you measure, pour and scoop.  If you are feeling extra adventurous- try and create a new recipe together and have your child write down the different steps.
  • Go for a nature walk together and then write about the things you saw.  You could also do a 5 senses scavenger hunt and look for things on your walk you can see, hear, smell, touch and maybe bring a cookie on the walk to taste!
  • Math- We are practicing our math fact fluency with sums to 18.  Here is a link for students to try out at home-https://www.iknowit.com/
  • In addition to this link, students can login to Mathletics (also in the links document) or play any math games you know with cards or dice. Some ideas- WAR (Each person turns over one card and the higher number wins), ADDITION WAR (same idea but each person turns two cards, adds them together and the higher sum wins. This can also be done with subtraction), MAKE TEN- click HERE for a youtube video explaining this fun card game. I will also be uploading some playing boards of math games you can download and print at home. These games require dice. 
  • Practice Sight Words! I will be uploading our full sight word document and you can practice your sight words in any way you prefer! Some fun ideas to practice: Roll them out in playdoh, paint them, make cards out of the words and use those to play a match game (flip over 2- if they match and you can read them- you get to keep them!), draw them with different colour markers, or hide cards around the room and go on a hunt to read and find them.

After spring break, we will provide an additional level of support for all of our students. 

I'm thinking about all of you during this very unusual and uncertain time and I'm sending you all my best.  Please take this time to spend some quality family time together and enjoy each other's company.  Hopefully we will see each other soon!
