BEST MORNING MEETING EVER! We opened our online learning journey this morning by acknowledging the land, and sharing this beautiful story with our entire Glendale Family! It was also so touching to hear the kids yelling ‘love you!’ before they hung up 🥰#wearecbe

RT @CanadaPaintings: Still Dancing Jonathan Labillois 2014 #MMIWG

RT @glendale_evans: Read this gem of a book this morning! The kids feel like a treaty needs to start with a promise, and so we spent some quiet time in the garden thinking of promises that we believe are important to keep with all living things. @glendalecbe

RT @glendale_evans: We began our Literacy Workshop this morning with a multimodal choice board! Students have opportunities to engage with images, photo sets, poetry, podcasts, and short stories with multiple options to demonstrate understanding. @glendalecbe #CBEliteracy
