Jan 11
A New Year

​Dear Cambrian Heights Families, 

​We hope you have had a restful break and are so looking forward to seeing our in-person learners back in the school on January 12! Hub families, welcome back as well!

At school, January is a time of new beginnings in a familiar place. We return to our work and learning refreshed and ready to continue. It is a wonderful moment to reflect as a community on the successes and challenges of the previous year, and to set direction and personal learning goals for the coming year. In doing so, I am once again humbled by the efforts and support of all members of our learning community under the most challenging of circumstances in 2020. Our staff have worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of students physically and emotionally, and we feel your support on a daily basis as we do so! We have all learned so much about ourselves during the past year, and have overcome so many obstacles. Let's ensure that we remind our children of this as well - that the positives in our lives far outweigh the negative. 

I would like to share with you a winter solstice teaching from one of our elders, saa'kokoto. The solstice is a time of many changes, and a time to be thankful for what has passed, and what is ahead. It is a time to plan our future, and to think of what is really important to us. At Cambrian Heights, we feel strongly our responsibility to support our community, and make a positive difference. We have shared saa'kokoto's message with our students, in particular his reminder to us that everyone can do something to make our community a good place to live - even you!  

Here's hoping that you and your family are walking into the new year with a good heart, a good mind, and to enjoy life. We will all be walking on green grass together soon. Please reach out to us if we can support you in any way. 

Take care, 

-Kevin
