Elementary Update – November 8th
Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal
Another busy week here in the Elementary School. We have been busy with professional development. This week we had Linda Henke working with our early years teachers/teaching assistants on Reggio Emilia and coming up over the next few days we have Adaptive Schools training. We all enjoy learning here at ISY.
Have a fabulous 4 day weekend.
Our first new Progress Reports will be going home on the 8th of November. Please see the attachment for a guide on the new reports.
Here is a guide on how to access the Progress Reports:
UWS SCHOOL COMPLETION
Parent conferences will take place all day on the 21st of November. Sign up will be available on the 14th of November on Powerschool. Meetings are 15 minutes long. They start at 9:00 am and finish at 5:30 PM.
Specialist teachers are available on that day in the Cafeteria for drop in meetings. However, our Art Teacher, Mr Batty and our PE Teacher, Mrs Johnson will only be available before 12 as they also have Senior School commitments. We look forward to seeing you all at the conferences.
We learnt so much in the assembly today run by Grade 5O. We learnt about parts of a book from 2S, Clouds from 3M and bird boxes and plants from 4E. 5O shared some of their writing. Well done everyone!

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.
