Good morning all – I trust you’re all staying safe and well.
Thank you again for continuing to ‘dig in’ as we all work toward the end of this very unusual school year. As we look forward to summer and the slow opening up of our economy, I encourage you to continue to be careful with yourself and those around you, and also to try to make a deliberate effort to carry on with some of the ‘good habits’ – being more friendly and engaged, maybe getting closer to elderly relatives - you’ve developed during this time.
As usual, a few administrative items this week:
• We’re optimistic and hopeful that classes will resume in our building in September, and to that end we’re deep into the planning for the 2020 – 2021 school year that means plans and decisions about budgets, staffing, and timetabling and scheduling for our students. As always, there will be difficult decisions to make given our limited resources, but I want to ensure our Churchill students and families that we always try our very best to do what’s in the best interest of our students and their learning.
• A reminder to students that Fridays are scheduled for tutorials/instructional times, where students can get an extra help they need from their teachers. Teachers are available to help – I urge students to take this opportunity and get the additional support they may need.
• Our Guidance Counsellors are now scheduling meetings with students for next year. Students, if you haven’t submitted your course requests to our Guidance Counsellors, please ensure that you do so as soon as possible.
• Again and as always, I want to remind students and families that the staff at Sir Winston Churchill - Admin, Students Services, Teachers and Support Staff are still here and willing to support you should you need us – don’t hesitate to reach out.
Mr. A Rajan
