We encourage everyone to take this time to really get to know your children and let them get to know you. Create memories you and your children can look back on as a “GIFT IF TIME” <3 Hope you are all well!
The following letter is from the Superintendent, Stephen Petrucci,
As you may have heard from recent announcements, in-person classes have been suspended. We do not know how long they will be suspended. This is a provincial decision based on the best health information available. We all have a responsibility to do our part during this health crisis, including good hygiene practices and self-isolation when appropriate.
There will be more details to come in terms of what the suspension of classes means – for students, parents and all staff. Please do not contact your school or the board office at this time. We have been working on contingency plans and will have more information next week. Our district is well-placed in terms of our technology infrastructure, tools and skill set. Everyone will play a role in making the best out of this difficult situation.
We will continue to give updates on this site.
Spring Break has just begun and so has travel. FAMILIES PLEASE continue to follow the PRN (SD60) website www.prn.bc.ca and or this website to stay up to date on the latest information released regarding COVID-19 and recommendations.
Language Matters. The words we use can hold meanings that may narrow how we see what a child is doing. New words can lead to new ways to see.British Columbia Early Learning Framework 2019 edition
We have been discussing animals in the winter, specifically Arctic animals and how they keep warm. As a wrap-up activity, we made “Polar Bear Paws” to eat. Not only was it fun and delicious, the children had to follow the steps, count, and use fine motor skills to build the paws. The giggles came out as I referred to the icing as “glue” to stick it all together!!
