Parents, we’ve made it to the final week of school! Lots of fun happening next week. Here are a few reminders:
TikTok dances are due today. Remember to film in portrait/vertical. Parents and siblings are welcome to join in the dancing. You can email videos to Ms. Monk or Ms. Durnan or post to the whole-school Google Classroom. Ms. D will edit them into one big, happy video that will be debuted at Wednesday’s celebration.
Tuesday night is our online drama production. Your “ticket” will be coming tomorrow.
Wednesday 11 a.m. is our end-of-school celebration. We’ll be celebrating our seven graduating students, we’ll show the TikTok video, and there will a lot more fun. Please try to make sure your children attend. This will be their last chance to see their fellow students.
Thursday and Fridayafternoons will the teacher parade! You’ll receive an email soon with an approximate time of the visit. We’re really excited to see everyone!
Reminder to parents of Grade 4-8s to have them sign into Khan Academy for math if they haven’t done so already.
We’re planning to start a short weekly whole-school Zoom meeting (a virtual Flag) next week so students can visit with all their school friends. We’re also planning to set up a weekly Zoom social meeting for parents. More details to come on both. Feel free to send any comments or other suggestions to Jen.
It’s week #3 of WHA’s online schooling; which came after 2 weeks of the March Break that never-was… so 5 weeks, correct?
Having one child in public school and one at WHA, I see the impacts of the 2 different approaches: The *live* connection between teachers and students makes my WHA child feel much less ‘on their own’. 🙌 Grateful for the WHA strategy!
What is everyone’s interest in creating a monthly *virtual* birthday ‘party/celebration’ for those children who have had, and who will have, birthdays during shelter-in-place protocols?
Please share thoughts … and any ideas for this or related suggestions … by posting comments to this blog.
