We have packed up the classrooms, and everything has been moved to Beaconsfield Elementary. With all the kerfuffle, we didn’t get to say a proper goodbye to students, families, or colleagues, yet 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 (and family) community we have in our program!
If yesterday was, indeed, the last day of school, then school is closed and all staff are away until Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014.
On September 2nd, all registered students are invited to convene at 9:00 a.m. in room 201 at Beaconsfield Elementary. We will have a brief meeting of welcome and everyone will be dismissed at 10:00 a.m. Please be on time as we will share important information about the school year at that time.
Families who are not yet registered are respectfully asked not to attend this meeting. Please click over to the About/FAQ & Registration page for instructions on contacting us over the summer and in September.
Vancouver Home Learner’s families (formerly Garibaldi Home Learners’) may want to enjoy time together in the school garden and/or playground following the meeting. Juliana and Shannon will not be available after 10:00 a.m. 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, completing individual Student Learning Plans with Teachers, working on and completing activation assignments, and starting their home learning. As of today’s posting, programming is scheduled to start on Wednesday, September 24th, 2014. It is possible we may be able to start programming earlier, however that depends solely on whether or not we can meet with all families as soon as possible following the 2nd.
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 2nd.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting our new students and families! Have a fabulous summer everyone!
Shannon and Juliana
