On Friday, Murray, April, Doug and I worked on a “Board of Education” where we are documenting and keeping track of each child’s learning plan/journey. It’s kept in the Bodega (large classroom) if you would like to take a look. We’re excited about the visual accountability that each teacher and each child will have … come and take a peek 🙂
This week is full of mentors, designing presentations from the data collected from our VCsporation question ressearching, new CC Studies, and passion development. On Monday students will be receiving their personal USB sticks. (Please pay the $30 student fee if you haven’t already done so. This money is paying for the student’s journals and the USBs.). On Tuesday students will get their Fresh Grade codes and begin their learning documentation, as well as reflecting upon the experiences lived thus far. CC study assessments will be posted today as well. On Wednesday, there is Woodwork Wednesday with the Dougler, and the teacher candidates from UBCO will be hosting a mini conference on “Mental Health and Wellness”. Thursday and Friday will find the students polishing and rehearsing for their presentations which will begin next Monday. Friday will also find the Outdoor School travelling to Bluenose Mountain for an adventure !
We hope that you received the invitation to the Nov 14 professional day learning opportunity – “Relationship Matters”. Please RSVP so we can ensure food/seating.
We are looking for a sewing mentor if you know of anyone. We are also looking for a woodworker who would like to help out with Woodwork Wednesday student project work – more about support and less about direct teaching.
Many thanks for all your support. Over the weekend a Professor from UBCO (not Leyton or Margaret) told me that VCS is like a “rock star” around the Valley now. WOW ! Yeah for us !
Ta Ta For Now,
P.S. If your child was in Writing CC Studies this term, please remind them to submit their writing to Kim – for assessment and posting to Fresh Grade. Thank you !
