As Juliana and I wrap up this school year and say goodbye to students and families, we would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much we enjoyed a year of learning adventures with your children. What a great student community we have in our program!
The last day of programming is Thursday, June 25th. Following that day, the school will be closed and all staff away until Tuesday, September 8th, 2015.
On September 4th, the traditional school students convene at 9:00 a.m. for a whole-school assembly in the gym and to find out their classroom placements. This year, we will also be welcoming our new VP, Lorraine Baker.
Garibaldi Home Learners’ families wishing to connect or re-connect are also welcome to join the assembly in the gym, and, weather permitting, enjoy time together in the school garden and/or playground. Juliana and Shannon will be at the assembly, but will not be available to open the Home Learners’ classroom as all staff have meetings immediately following the assembly, for the remainder of the day.
For Home Learners’, the month of September consists of planning, preparing and completing individual Student Learning Plans with Teachers, and starting their home learning. As of today’s posting, programming is scheduled to start on Monday, October 1st, 2012. It is possible we can start programming earlier, but that depends solely on whether or not we can meet with all families as soon as possible following the 4th.
To that end, please look at the calendar on the left column of this site (or click onto the calendar page) to view available times for meetings. Please email us using the “contact the teacher” form on this blog, with your 1st and 2nd choice of Student Learning Plan meeting times. We will do our best to book people into their requested meeting times on a first come, first served basis, and will email you confirmation on September 4th.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting our new students and families! Have a fabulous summer everyone!
