Elementary Update – January 17th, 2020
Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal
We have had a great week at ISY. This week we celebrated writing, enjoyed a presentation on sustainability and learnt lots in our classrooms.
Next week cycle 3 of assemblies begin again. The Grade 5 students are doing a wonderful job of leading these assembly times.
We are monitoring air quality and have a plan in place should we need to have indoor recess, PE times.
Have a great weekend.

The last day of the school year is here, it certainly has been an interesting few months. I would like to thank you all for your support during virtual learning.
I hope the students enjoyed the assembly this week, it was a lot of fun. It was great to still be able to farewell our teachers and leaving students.
Next week will be our last full week of school. There will be slides up until Thursday. On Friday the 5th of June there will be no slides, the teams will have conferencing type activities planned, they will communicate these to you. Report cards will go home on Thursday the 4th of June.
Thank you to all those who attended the parent meeting last night hosted by Dr Hedger. There is a lot of planning going on at the moment and as mentioned later in June you will be able to view more information on what the new school year might look like.
Another week of virtual learning fun and experiences is over. We love keeping the learning connections with our students. Our teachers are working very hard to ensure that your children have access to the best learning virtually that we can possibly give them.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey this week. The feedback you provide is so important to us. An email will be sent out soon that will summarize the feedback given.
