We hope everyone has had as much fun with this Unit as we have had. The students seemed quite engaged by the various digital media tools that we explored, and we could see the improvement in their writing from the initial assessment when compared with what they wrote last week.
It’s quite impressive how creative many of the students were when using digital tools to share their narrative stories in a new format, and we will be sharing these with you soon after the break.
Below is information for the next couple of weeks. We hope everyone has a wonderful autumn break and comes back refreshed and ready to go on October 18th!.
Weekly Parent Meeting
For parents, we have a bi-weekly meeting on Wednesday mornings at 8:00am. The link will be sent out in an email as it is against policy to post it in a public forum. If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to pop-in at that time and talk to the teachers.
If you have any urgent questions or concerns, you can always email your homeroom teacher directly.
