A world with possibilities…

During the past few weeks, I have been inspired by possibilities – possibilities that bloom in the outside, in the trees and the parks, possibilities that change the way we use technology, while celebrate honoured traditions, and possibilities that bring us together in unique, but different ways. Despite a shift in normalcy, our new near normal identity, I know, with confidence, that greatness is a constant.

I have been inspired by our students – their resilience, their humour, and their compassion. Each and every day, I see students coming to school with huge smiles in their eyes. And, when I remind them of the upcoming non-instructional day, they say 'ah, but we like coming to school!"

I have been inspired by our teachers – their creativity, their passion and their potential to inspire and to challenge. Each and everyday, teachers share their learning stories and their adventures with the students. Our teachers eagerly greet RTA students outside in the morning and before school starts in the HR classroom, saying goodbye at the end of the day. In a very, very short time, teachers have explored Google Meets, D2L Virtual Classrooms, Skype and Microsoft virtual parent meetings, and our first school wide STEM challenge.

I have been inspired by our families – their gratitude, their understanding and their strong believe in the learning. On my morning and afternoon bus supervision, I have been told stories of students coming home excited to share their learning, taking over the dinner table. Thank you!

Together, we will problem solve and discover endless possibilities.
