Teacher Message for High School Students
ELA 11 & 10
Hello my wonderful students!! I hope everyone is safe, healthy, and finding some things to do to pass your time. I wanted to touch base with you all to let you know that, I too am missing you all, our typical routine, and the ability to check in with you in a classroom setting.
As many of you know, we were given an update from Premier McNeil on April 28th/2020 that has extended the closure of schools until May 18th/2020. I have not been given any new information on what this means for graduation activities / expectations. I am unsure as of now if we will be back together for June, or working online for the rest of the school year. As soon as I receive any new information, I will let you know. They will have to make an official decision by May 18th I would think!
For now, ELA 11 & 10 students please continue to set aside time each day / week to go through to see if you have assignments that are not passed in. If you click on the little person icon, (see pic below) you can see the whole course, what assignments we have had in each category and what your marks are for each one. Please take some time to go through this, and also to check the assignments posted to see if you did not turn in any. If you have work outstanding please complete it and pass it in.
For my graduates, my hearts go out to you. It frustrates me that we have no new information from the province. From my end I am planning and prepping for what I know I can still give you, regardless if it is in a graduation ceremony or if it is a scheduled pick up situation. I am working at trying to give you as much as I am allowed, while following the mandates by the health authority in our province, that you would typically receive on your graduation day. I am also working on a plan for alternatives means to ensure you receive graduation photos.
Please let me know, if you have any questions for me, Email- firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be in contact with you all again soon! Please, stay safe everyone xoxo
