June is here and we are ready for summer! Students and parents, you continue to amaze me by your dedication and hard work during this unique school year. It has been my pleasure to ride this roller coaster with you and say we came out stronger in the end! We have all gained some great technology skills along the way and look forward to growing with you next school year. I wish everyone a relaxing, fun summer. Well deserved!
Here we are in the month of May in, what seems like, a whole new world! I am sure that it has been a huge period of adjustment and learning for everyone. I want to give a big thank you to my staff; Lisa, Mireille and Sheila for learning and applying some new technology skills these past few weeks! Our collaboration, as a group, has been awesome and it is great to work in such a supportive environment. My appreciation also extends to our parents and, of course, all of our students for being flexible and patient during these times. I love watching videos, looking at pictures and reading your comments on our online classroom. We are very impressed! Looking forward to expanding our knowledge and application in the month to come! Take care and we hope you enjoy some springtime sunshine!
Wow, March here we come! Here we are again looking forward to yet another month in our school year. Time has passed by so quickly and I am hoping the nice weather is just around the corner as well. For the month of March, we are going to be focusing on books and being exposed to different ways of exploring and relating to stories in class. We will also have activities centered around some stories in our indigenous collection, and students will also be making their own experience stories about their adventures outside. Looking forward to the fresh air with everyone! Have a great month!
January has been a cold, but fun month! We are excited to inform you about a special guest visiting our school classrooms. His name is Dylan, but prefers to be referred to as “The Music Dude.” He is a graduate of Central Memorial high school and is currently 20 years old. He was born blind and loves music, especially playing the keyboard. He has been playing since he was 3 years old and is self taught. He especially likes keyboards from the 1980’s and 90’s and has collected 7 over these past years. He started playing for kids at a local preschool and loved the response from students. When asked why he enjoys performing Dylan responded with a smile saying, “Kids get lots of energy from my songs.” Dylan is planning to visit us every Tuesday morning for the remainder of the school year. Thank you, Dylan!
