Principal's Message

Weekly Up-Date September 11, 2020


Hello SWL Families,
HOMEROOM ASSIGNMENTS I would like to thank families for your support as we re-entered school throughout the past weeks, whilst also making preparations for SWL students enrolled in online hub.  We are excited to have our school program underway and as of this week, we have been able to deploy teachers to in-person or online hub teaching assignments. As a result, we have reconfigured some classes to optimize student learning.  You may notice a change to your child's homeroom assignment in PowerSchool as we wanted to make sure homeroom/cohort groupings were relatively equal in size and balanced with a variety of student personalities to make our learning time together rich, fun and varied.  We will also start options/exploration classes next week (yahoo), but unlike previous years, we will be offering one exploratory course at a time for about 6 weeks duration and then we will introduce a new one.  This allows us to physically distance in cohorts and still provide opportunities for Art, Environmental Studies, Drama, etc.
BLOGS & GOOGLE CLASSROOMS Now that our homerooms are established, teachers will set up their classroom blogs and update them weekly so that you can stay informed of what students are learning and assignment due dates.  Teachers will also work together to create Google Classrooms at each grade level, where they will deposit links and assignments in the event your child is absent from school and wants to stay up to date.
FOOD AND DRESS I greatly appreciate that you are providing nutritious lunches in the absence of a school cafeteria and microwaves.  I am also seeing more students dress for outside activities as we are conducting classes outdoors as much as possible. A reminder that formal uniforms are not required at this time; we want to see the informal TLC polo/golf shirts, and layered clothing choices to support physical activity during colder weather.  Good footwear and a water bottle is essential.
MEET THE TEACHER We are not gathering in large groups or inviting parents/guardians into the school at this time, but we still will have a Meet the Teacher event, most likely in a virtual or online format by the end of September.  We will let you know the specifics once we have had a chance to finalize our planning.
ONLINE HUB My current understanding is online hub classes are scheduled to start on or about September 14, and I am very excited for our students who are registered.
 
We are optimistic with how well the students are learning and adhering to the safety protocols. They arrived with excitement and anticipation and this has renewed our passion as their teachers.  Over the next few weeks, we will review and reflect on what is going well and what we might revise to best support our students.
I wish you a wonderful fall week-end.  It has been so nice meeting and reconnecting with students!
Sincerely Yours, Mr. Martin​
