Principal's Notes: 10/4 - 10/8: WEEK 1: Cohort B
This year secondary teachers will be inviting you as the guardian, to your child's google classrooms in place of the traditional WAAGs that we posted in the past. All parents should have received these invitations already. We kindly ask that you accept the invitation when you receive it. This will then trigger that you receive a summary of student academic accomplishments every week and announcements of what will be coming up in the next week. If you have any concerns, did not receive the invitations or do not know how to accept the invitations, please let the corresponding teacher know immediately so we may help you.
10/8 - End of Q1
10/11-15 - Fall Break
10/18 - First day Q2
SECONDARY ASSESSMENTS: Winter testing information coming up.

Corona Virus Stop
In order to improve student engagement, students must have their cameras on when in class. Some of the reasons are:
Better for teachers: seeing students is a big part of the joy of the work
Better for learners: increases level of personal responsibility and preparation
Easier for teachers to monitor student engagement
Students spend more time getting prepared before starting their day
Encourages student responsibility
If students do not want their real backgrounds to be visible then:
Virtual/ blurred backgrounds can be used in google meets and on zoom.
Students may turn self-view off on zoom
Cameras on laptops are working perfectly. Students who do not have their cameras on may be marked absent.
Students are not on their mobile phones while also on their laptops. We need to ensure engagement while classes are on.
Your child is borrowing a library book and reading. Students need to read material that is not always online. Please check the next Curbside Library dates and ensure that your child is borrowing and reading a book.
