Where eagles SOAR: safety, ownership, achievement, respect!
Welcome Eagle Students & Families!

​Hello Eagles,

I would like to welcome you to our developing virtual learning commons website. My goal is to create a space that supports you in your learning as we move forward in our education journey outside of the classroom setting. This is new and uncharted territory to many of us, but if we work together it can be an opportunity to create, explore, and express our knowledge in unique and exciting ways. 

"Children are the priority. Change is the reality. Collaboration is the strategy." ~unknown

Please email me at ehall@sd57.bc.ca with any questions you may have.
