Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads, grandfathers, uncles, moms carrying both roles, and anyone else who is being a dad to the children of our class.

Thank you for working hard to help your children succeed both in school and out of school. This year has presented more challenges than usual, and you have helped guide your children through all the changes. I appreciate the collaboration between home and school more than ever.

I hope you all have a great day, and get to celebrate your very important role in your child’s life.

Happy Summer Vacation!

Well, we made it!

We made it through one of the most bizarre and challenging school years. We started the year with a storm cancellation on the third day of school because of Hurricane Dorian. We then had multiple other storm days, which affected our field trip planning among other daily activities. Our second term report cards were dramatically delayed after the malware attack, and then the global pandemic kept us home for the last three months.

No wonder we’re exhausted!

But, now is the time to rest and recharge. Learning, of course can still continue, but in a much less structured way. Orwell Corner is a great option that is not far away. Students always have a lot of fun learning about history in a hands-on way. Other hands-on learning opportunities that are less than an hour away are the Elmira Railway Museum, and the Basin Head Fisheries Museum. Beaconsfield is an option if you’re in Charlottetown for the day and have some time. Or, if you’re doing a staycation up west, you could visit the Eptek Art & Culture Center in Summerside, the Acadian Museum in Miscouche, or the Green Park Shipbuilding Museum & Yeo House in Port Hill. Students will learn so much about culture and history, and get to see more places on our beautiful Island.

Here are some other ways students can continue to grow their brains while resting and relaxing over summer vacation:

Thank-you to everyone who brought their children to the school today for our goodbye activity. I have missed those faces so much, and was so excited to get to see them again, even if it was just for a short time.

Enjoy the summer, and thank you to all the parents who partnered with me and other staff this spring to keep the children learning in the midst of the pandemic. I know it wasn’t easy, but now we have a break to recharge before we see what September will bring.

Stay safe, and have fun,

Year End Closing

Just a reminder that our Year End Closing activities will be taking place tomorrow, Friday, June 19 at the school. We will be outside on the front lawn, and students will have the opportunity to receive their final report cards, and have some fun with their classmates at this time. It’s going to be a hot one, so please remember sunscreen and water bottles (we will not be going into the school).

Grade 2s – 11:00-11:30 am

Grade 3s – 12:00-12:30 pm

I can’t wait to see everyone then!!!

The Last Week

Good morning everyone!

Well, we made it to the last week of home learning!!!! I know that this has been such a weird semester, and there have been so many new challenges to overcome. There are only 5 days left (that I hope I made light and easy) and then summer vacation! This week Gr. 2 & 3 students will be writing poetry, and Gr. 1 & 2 students will be reviewing math skills.

As always, please let me know what support is needed and I will do my best to provide that.

Happy Learning,

Lisa 🙂
