As we now know, we will be finishing our school year online. I want to take a moment to thank all the students who have been upholding their high standards and work ethic over the past several weeks. To the parents, also a great big thank you! I know firsthand how challenging it is to work from home and see to it that your children are getting their school work done. Thankfully, the weather seems to finally be turning springlike and we’re not quite so boxed in.
Monday, May 4th is ‘Star Wars Day’. This is a dress-up day! And Wednesday, May 6th is ‘Take a Stuffy to School Day’! Grab your favourite stuffed animal and work with them on school work! Send a picture of yourself on either of these days to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured on social media!
