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 3rd, 2019.
On September 3rd, 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 3rd and 4th, 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 3rd, 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 first weeks of September consist mainly of planning, preparing, and completing individual Student Learning Plans with the teacher, working on and completing each student’s Activation Assignment, and starting (or continuing) their home learning.
Starting immediately, please click onto the calendar page to view available times to book for Student Learning Plan meetings in September. 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 read upon my return in September. For newly registered families who do not have my email, I will contact you during the first week of the school year.
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 4th.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting our new students and families!
Have a fabulous summer everyone!
