Hoy/Today our Kindergarten, grades 1, 3 and 5 participated in the Spring concert. I believe that all of us were awed by the amazing talent and skills students demonstrated in their musical skills, singing, dancing as well as Spanish language proficiency. A huge thank you to the teachers, Sr. Casas , Srta. Rivas, Sra. Fandino and parent volunteers for the great organization of this event. Parents, you have amazing children!
La próxima semana/Next week is Science and Math week! We look forward to teachers implementing fun and creative ways in which students will be able to engage in science and math even more than before! Again, thank you, teachers. I also wish to thank the parent volunteers who support us with the Maker Space and resources to make science and math fun and engaging for students!
En Mayo/On May 20, PD Day, teachers will engage in creating heterogeneous classes for the next school year. Our lenses when creating class lists are Students at risk, on IPP's, Gifted, leadership, English Language Learners, behaviour, academics, social, best fit with teachers and many more. Please know that teachers and the school admin engage in this very complex task with a high degree of thought and intention. As a result, only reach out to Sra. Fandino or me if your child would be at a detriment socially for a particular request. I know that all our teachers are amazing professionals and we trust our gems (students) with all of them. The other parts of our PD Day will include, Indigenous and STEM learning opportunities for staff.
