Where Eagles SOAR!
Safety, Ownership, Achievement, Respect
June 8th, 2020
June is always an interesting month typically for schools. This year is no exception. This year, our first week of June was spent re-integrating more students back into school. As you know, this return was parent choice. We have approximately 55 students each day on the four days given to onsite access (M,T, Th, Fr). Wednesdays continue to be for supporting and planning the remote learning, as this continues to be the learning for all learners. Students of essential service workers do attend on Wednesdays if needed.
We thank everyone for helping us on the recent CSL Days. These days in June, teachers use to start preparing the final written summative report that reflects the year of learning. This year, due to COVID-19, the communication of learning will reflect the learning from September to Spring Break. Students and parents have been receiving feedback on the remote learning students have done.
Our new theme of the month is Truth. Truth encompasses all the 7 Sacred Teachings and themes we have covered throughout the year. It is represented by the turtle. Mrs. Bryce is experimenting with assemblies with week with small groups of students, and it is our hope that these can be recorded and posted for all to see. Stay tuned for more on this.
On June 5th, the city announced that all parks and school playgrounds would re-open. As per Dr. Bonnie Henry's message, please be mindful of distancing when utilizing these play areas as well as washing hands before and after use. School playgrounds will not be regularly sanitized. We will be allowing students who are in attendance to play on the structures. Hands will be washed before and after use, and students will practice physical distancing. Food will not be taken outside during the breaks. This is another step forward for all of us. Students will be thrilled.
