Week 24

The weather has walloped us again this week.  We are encouraging students to complete work at home during snow days.  Many of the assignments and tasks that students are assigned are listed in their Google Classroom which they have access to at home with an internet or Wi-Fi connection.  Snow days are terrific days to get caught up on any outstanding work or to edit work to bump it up to the next level.  When this work is completed during snow days, it allows us to continue on our learning path without needing to slow down.

Last week, I announced our revised Science Centre date was April 18.  Due to basketball tournaments and robotics tournaments, we have had to find an alternate date so we will be heading to the Science Centre on April 16th.  Thank you for being patient with us while we worked this through with the bus company, the Science Centre and our own schedule.
