Parents/Guardians, Nov 25, 2021
We have now received provincial Learning Disruption Funding in response to the COVID pandemic. This funding is meant to address learning gaps encountered by students related to absences and changes to learning that occurred during the 2020 -2021 school year. The distribution of funds was based on assessment information conducted during fall of this year and is focused on grade 2 and grade 3. We anticipate additional funding based upon the further assessment of grade 1 students in December and January of this year, which will see additional support for these students.
Beddington has now been able to add two additional teachers to our staff to specifically support grade 2 and grade 3 students. Please help me in welcoming the following staff members to Beddington Heights;
- Ms. Amanda Bankebabone who will be providing mathematics resource support.
- Mr. Kai Hsueh will be providing coverage for Mrs. Pokolinski's grade three class in order for her to provide literacy support to the grade 2 and grade 3 students.
These staff members will begin with us on November 29, 2021 and will continue with us until April 8, 2022. We will keep you informed of additional funding information as it becomes available.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions.
