Elementary Update – March 26th, 2020
Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal
I hope your week of virtual learning has gone well in your household. Please let us know through the surveys sent home if there is anything we can do to support further.
This weekend is a long weekend, so there will be no virtual learning slides for Friday or Monday. You will receive slides for Tuesday, this is the day we start back with our learning. Take a well earned break and enjoy some family time.
Wherever you are we are thinking of you all. We miss our students so much.
As a reminder, everyday, class work will be posted by 4pm by the Elementary school teachers and I encourage you to get into a new routine of checking in on the classwork everyday with your children. In times like this, it’s important to establish a new routine quickly to minimise any interruption in studies. The CDC offers some good advice see here.
Our staff participating in Virtual Learning planning today. Empty classrooms, but learning still happening. Send me a picture of your child Virtual Learning and I will put as many as I can in the upcoming blogs.

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.
