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.

  • Math- Ratios sheet

A big thanks to Div 1 for working so diligently this week (and the last few weeks really), we have gotten through a lot and I really appreciate it!

We finished our in class Concours! I said today that it was very evident that everyone worked really hard on their speeches, they were well written and well presented (usually it’s 1 or the other), so kudos to everyone! It was decided that Ava and Mackenzie would continue on to the school level (felicitations!), as their overall package (speech, presentation and answers) I think have the best chance to move forward. That being said, it was difficult to only select 2, there were several others that missed the mark by a very slim margin. EVERYONE should be proud of how they did.

I will be collating and creating final numbers for camp forms. I sent an email on Wednesday to everyone who hadn’t submitted theirs yet, to anyone I didn’t hear back from I am assuming your child is not attending camp.

Les Devoirs:

  • Paragraphe- Gouvernement Mésopotamien- corrected and revised copy due ASAP
  • Math- fractions to decimals and reverse page (don’t do the last part on the back page)
    • Test corrections– anyone with 40.5 or below is welcome to do their corrections and resubmit their test, I will bump their test score up to the next letter grade

Bonne fin de semaine!

Felicitations tout le monde! We have heard all but one speech! They were quite well done, and everyone should give themselves a big pat on the back!

Camp forms need to be submitted ASAP. I will be sending you a follow up email if I have not received forms from you yet.

Any WGSS course selection forms must now be taken directly to WGSS. Any forms submitted to me have already been sent off.

Les Devoirs:

0AE07A93-D3DA-426C-B382-24761F1F0435Some words of reassurance and inspiration for everyone who got up and did their speech today. 11 out of the 12 speakers today were volunteers! Way to be courageous and get it done. Now you can relax!

We wrote our Math test today. It was long. Kudos to everyone, there was a lot of perseverance evident!

Le 21 fevrier

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!
