As this school year wraps up, I would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much I enjoyed a year of learning adventures with your children, and how much I appreciate all the support and involvement of the parents. What a great community we have in our program! After today, the school will be closed and all staff away until Tuesday, September 5th, 2017.
On September 5th, the mainstream school students convene at 9:00 a.m. for a whole-school assembly in the gym to find out their classroom placements. Home Learners do not attend that day. As soon as practically possible on the 5th and 6th, Shannon will be contacting all registered student’s families to book or confirm their Student Learning Plan Meetings. These are very busy days and I will contact everyone as soon as I possibly can. The Home Learners’ classroom is closed on the 5th, as all staff have meetings immediately following the classroom placement assembly, for the remainder of the day.
As with the rest of the distributed learning world, for Home Learners’, the month of September consists of mainly of planning, preparing and completing individual Student Learning Plans with the teacher, working on and completing each student’s Activation Assignment, and starting their home learning. Starting immediately, please look at the calendar on the left column of this site (or click onto the calendar page) to view available times to book for Student Learning Plan meetings. Please email the teacher with your 1st and 2nd choice of Student Learning Plan meeting times. I will book people into meeting times on a first-come, first-served basis. Although I will not be accessing my VSB email over the summer, your email will be saved and accessed upon my return in September.
I will do my best to book people into their requested meeting times on a first come, first served basis, and will email you confirmation on or shortly after September 5th.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting our new students and families! Have a fabulous summer everyone!
