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!

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.

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.

Happy Monday friends!

One final reminder that tomorrow is a big day- Concours and Math Test!

Hopefully you have been able to make final corrections and improvements to your speech and have transmitted it to cue cards (not mandatory but encouraged). And more importantly, say the speech out loud as many times as you can! It’s like muscle memory, the more you say it, the more your brain will recognize and anticipate what’s next.

Math test- work through the revision package and all previous work.

Hope you’re enjoying the day, can’t wait to see you tomorrow!

P.S. WGSS Course Selection forms due tomorrow!

Oh boy today was eventful!! The class wrote their final human body evaluations and we went over decimal by decimal division. During lunch,

I took my Textiles Enrichment group over to WGSS to spend the afternoon sewing on machines with the help of WGSS students- AMAZING. A bit of a rush day but we made it!

Division 1 once again has a lot on their plates this weekend. Tuesday is a double header- Concours and a Math Test. A revision package was given today for the math test, and most students should be in the finalizing/memorizing/perfecting stage for their speech. Saying it out loud as much as possible is the BEST WAY TO PREPARE. Thankfully Monday is a day off for you, please spend some time preparing.

Also Tuesday- WGSS Course Selection forms are due. Wednesday Camp Jubilee forms are due. Please refer to the calendar pinned to the top of the blog for all important dates.

Bonne fin de semaine!

Pour Demain

Bonjour Division 1,
It has been a busy few weeks. Our Carnaval presentations went well on Thursday! You should be proud of yourself. It can always be a little bit nerve racking presenting and leading an activity to a whole class. This was a great leadership opportunity and I hope you all took something positive away from it.
Many assignments are past due. Please take a look on TeacherEase to see if you owe anything. Specifically, I will remind you to hand in your science lab by tomorrow (absolute last day to hand it in), as well as be ready to present your Friendship Ad with your group. Also, science questions have been handed back and students have the option to re-do the questions if they would like to improve their mark. These questions must be submitted by tomorrow.
Lastly, tomorrow we will be visiting Walnut Grove for a science activity. High school students will be running various science stations that our class will be participating in – very exciting learning opportunity for us!

Working with clay is so fun! This afternoon we spent about 45 minutes making our Mesopotamian God/Goddess statues. Can’t wait to see how they dry!

WGSS came today to talk course selection.  Your child should have a bunch of paperwork with them to go over with you. I will be sending an email with all sorts of information in a little bit.

Tomorrow are the Carnaval presentations. Be ready!

Tuesday good copies of speeches need to be finished. We are practicing them in class! Also, we are doing our JIGSAW. I have conferenced with all of you, you know what you need to do.

Have a good, PRODUCTIVE long weekend!!
