I hope you are all having a beautiful longer weekend (for children anyway), and enjoying the sunshine at least for a moment. This past Friday we were able to take time as a staff to prepare for second semester. These moments are always appreciated in the midst of the usual busyness. We hope students had time to be refreshed and prepare for the second half of the year. It is certainly hard to believe we are in February (shortly)! Please see below a few reminders as we head into a new week.
Monday Feb 1st
We have done some minor classroom adjustments to best support learning for all students, and as we welcome some of our Hub students back to face to face learning, so we will begin the day similar to the way in which we started the year. Students will meet their teachers at their grade level entrance and will be called in by class. Please ensure children arrive on time to avoid disruptions.
Thursday Feb 4th
To avoid system complexities due to the high volume of students within the CBE, report card availability will be based on alphabetical range. Dr. Egbert report cards will be available online as of Thursday. An additional email will support clarification of the process.
Wednesday Feb 10th
Telus Wise: Full school virtual conversations around wise use of social media. We notice as a school, that while some students are certainly wise, many others struggle with appropriate use of technology. Sadly, messages and images are regularly unkind, distract students from learning and rarely support student well-being. While we engage in ongoing conversations with students around what it sounds like and looks like to treat each other well, we hope this presentation will provide another entry point into supporting students in being wise and caring in their interactions both online and face to face. It is certainly a complex world young people are growing up in.
6:00 PM Thursday Feb 11th – Telus Wise Parent Workshop
As parents, most of us did not grow up with cell phones, or access to the internet and social media platforms. This can sometimes make it difficult to understand not only the advantages of these technological advances, but also the pitfalls and dangers. I encourage you, on behalf of School Council, to join us for this evening. A link will be sent out prior to the event. Thank you to our council secretary for organizing this opportunity for us.
School Council will follow after the workshop – this is a great opportunity to find out what is going on in our school community. It would be wonderful to have more parents join our conversation.
2020-2021 School Yearbook
This school year has certainly been like no other. Ms. Ramsay, with the support of a few students, has been hard at work trying to capture special moments and special faces (your children) of this school year. Our school yearbook will certainly hold memories that will be talked about for years to come. We look forward to sharing a yearbook promotional video with students very shortly. Thank you to Ms. Ramsay for leading this extra curricular work.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support.
