Google Classrooms

By Friday, April 17 all of the teachers here at Valley View will have hosted at least one Google Meet session for all of their students and will have two or more assignments posted in their Google Classroom for students to engage in.

Please note that this online platform can not and will not replace the instruction that your child was receiving while attending classes here at school. These Google Classrooms are remote emergency teaching as teachers are working from home to support all students. 

The Alberta Minister of Education has stipulated that K-5 teachers prepare five hours of instruction each week. This includes the time that students would be meeting with their teacher on line. The focus of the lessons is to be on literacy and numeracy. For students in grades four and five, teachers may also include Social Studies and Science content. 

This is not a time for lots of new learning but rather a time of reinforcing what has been learned and enhancing students' current knowledge and skills so that they can apply their understandings to a broad range of circumstances.  ​What is most important is that we maintain our positive relationships and take care of each other. 

I hope all of you are well.  Take good care.
