Mercredi le 8 avril

So today was weird. I went in to the Chalet to pack up your supplies and materials so they can be picked up next week. It was eerie being there during the day without you. There are also several pairs of shoes, some clothes and a couple clarinets to claim when you come through.EAE33502-A66F-4F44-A1AA-5E7397BC9B77

Tomorrow I will be sending out a hefty email for you to digest over the Easter weekend. It will contain information related to supply pick up next Thursday AND the start of “learning from home” on Tuesday.

I hope you are still well, and keeping your spirits up. It was such a beautiful day today!

À demain!

 

lundi le 6 avril

Good afternoon!

As promised, here is my first check in/update for the week. Mme Asimakis and I will be spending this week planning and preparing for the official launch of LEARN FROM HOME SPRING 2020!! (cheers echoing in the distance)

You will from me/her/us a couple more times this week, as we get more and more settled in place. It will likely be platforms/websites to get acquainted/comfortable with and information related to picking up supplies/material from the chalet etc. I am also thinking about hosting a class chat/meet/practice thing later this week (details tbd) to get comfortable with that process.

Just a reminder that this Friday is Good Friday and next Monday is Easter Monday (both holidays) and we will not be available to communicate those days.

We really enjoyed chatting/catching up with everyone last week, thank you for taking the time out of your day to do that. Glad everyone is doing as well as they can be. Remember, if your situation changes, please let us know so we can help in whatever we way we can.

As much as this week feels like another week “off”, we will be suggesting some things soon to start getting everyone into somewhat of a routine, in anticipation for next week. At the same time, our health and well-being are the most important aspects to focus on, so keep doing the things that help you stay calm, reduce anxiety and make you happy. I strongly suggest getting outside at least once (but more if possible!), take a walk, play a sport or game, or just sit and enjoy the elements.

We miss you all, and will be in touch soon ❤

Checking In

Good morning friends,

Obviously this is not what we envisioned our first day back from Spring Break would look like, and yet here we are. I hope you all had a safe and healthy last couple weeks, and that you followed Dr Henry’s advice to maintain physical distance and to stay home.

This week, Mme Asimakis and I will be planning and preparing for our “remote learning” journey, or “learning from home” as I am going to call it. You will receive an email from me in the next couple days with some questions about your intentions, expectations and abilities of learning from home, which will help us create the best plan. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we all tackle this unchartered territory together.

À la prochaine!

le 13 mars

We did it!! We made it!

We spent a lot of day talking about COVID-19. My intention was to inform the students as much as possible so they are able to make the best decisions, and understand what all the fuss is about, without panicking.

I wish you all a safe Spring Break. Please check the school district website for updates as needed. I will try and post on here if anything significant presents itself.

Good luck to everyone writing the WGSS English Honours Exam today!

Les Devoirs:

  • Education Physique demain (on commence là)

le 9 mars

Hope you had a lovely weekend. I went to Bowen Island for the first time, I found it so charming!

One more week!! We can do it! Reminder that Conferences are this week, Wednesday and Thursday. That’s a 1:45pm Dismissal for students. I will be present on Wednesday and Mme Asimakis on Thursday. If you did not or cannot get a time for a conference, please reach out to me and we’ll make arrangements.

I’m assuming everyone received the most recent email from the school district regarding COVID-19 and the measures we are taking here and also asking our community to take as well. We are fortunate, in the chalet, to have access to running water, and I will be encouraging students to make more frequent use of our sinks this week (I already noticed today that more students were washing their hands before snack etc). The big stand out for me in the letter was the aspect on sharing food. Our class is VERY GENEROUS with each other when it comes to food. While sharing is kind and thoughtful, we need to be mindful in these times about best hygiene practice, and if we are going to share food we need to have clean hands to do so. Thank you for everything you are doing and for your continued support.

Les Devoirs:

  • orchestre demain
  • Math- Ratios sheet
  • WGSS English Honours Exam demain à 3h30
