Happy Lunar New Year!

The disappearance of the snow has led to the brave return of some of our bulbs in the garden. Take a look and a listen on your next nature walk and encourage your children to notice (and reflect upon) these early signs of Spring. Several guest teachers have spent time with us recently. It speaks volumes about your children’s increasing independence and maturity when guest teachers and resource people enthuse about the depth of insight and quality of response they receive to new literacy and science activities. Flexible thinking, creative expression, and critical thinking skills are what we are all about!

Several parents have asked me for ideas for online social studies resources. I don’t actually endorse sites, but I am happy to pass along names/locations of resource I find interesting. I recently came across Amazing Maps on Twitter at @amazingmap and don’t forget about CBC for Kids which is found at https://www.cbc.ca/kids

The waitlist for enrollment for next year is now open for Kindergarten to Grade 7. If you know parents  (with students at any grade level), who may be interested in their child joining our program in September, feel free to invite them to check out this blog to get a sense of our approach to learning. Please pass along my contact email  lbaker@vsb.bc.ca if they would like more information or to apply to the wait list.
