Hope the summer break was good!  We still have precautions in place and hopefully things will return back to normal sooner than later.  We have a new school counsellor doing her practicum placement from Acadia University, Charlotte Fillmore.  She will be with us until December and she will be working with myself and the Behaviour Interventionist.

When seeing a school counsellor individually, a mask is not required because we will be socially distanced.  If we are working in groups, a mask will be required.

For the students who need to chat, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at bbrooks@lskschool.ca and we can schedule a time.

Be mindful and be safe! 

Thanks,
Bryan Brooks, LSK School Counselor – Jr/Sr High School

Hey Parents and Guardians,

The last month of school!! I am very excited to see your kids and I will continue to do my daily check-ins with them.

What will daily check-ins look like with Bryan and/or Tara?

  • Mask to be worn the entire time (until we hear that it is OK without them)
  • Most sessions will be scheduled visits.  This will allow us time to disinfect the areas effectively.
  • Students can either see Tara or I OR both.  Since the shutdown, students have been seeing both of us and we can continue this if students wish.
  • No group sessions inside the school, they will be outdoors.  This is to allow appropriate distancing 

Just a reminder, Tara is with us until the end of the school year.  She is on the final stretch of her placement.

I would like to say, WELCOME BACK, to the students and teachers!  :)

Thank you,
Bryan Brooks
LSK School Counsellor

Hello to all the Staff and Students of LSK!

We are now back to online learning,  I have been into various classes already and it is so good to see all the students in their classes working.

I am very proud of our students than take the time to attend the online classes.

I hoping we have a bit of time together before the end of the year, it is approaching us very quickly.

Take care and stay home and stay safe.

Tara and I are still working on sending our permission slips to parents/guardians of children from Primary - Grade 6.  We have made way around to most of the classes.  Tara’s office is located in Mary Davis’ room.

Our lobster trap making is a bit at a stand still for now.  We are waiting for more gear to arrive.  When it arrives, we will pick up where we left off.

If your child wishes to have a chat, they can let their teacher know or stop in to arrange a time. Individual sessions, a mask is not required since we will be 6ft apart. Group sessions, a mask is required.

We have a new practicum student (Counselling) coming to LSK, Tara.  She will be with us until the end of the school year.  We will be sending our permission slips to parents/guardians of children from Primary - Grade 6.  This is exciting to have more help to reach out to our students.

We will be starting our lobster trap making with the grade 9's and some high school students in March.  We will be working with fisheries to make this happen.  

We are wrapping up our rabbit snaring with grades 4-12.  The students learned a lot about snaring from patterns, making a snare, skinning a rabbit, cleaning and cooking.  This project was put together by Greg Marr, Jon Michael and myself.  We will continue this every year.  

If your child wishes to have a chat, they can let their teacher know or stop in to arrange a time. Individual sessions, a mask is not required since we will be 6ft apart. Group sessions, a mask is required.  

Hope all is well,

We are half way through the school year!!  Second semester starts Monday.  

I am still working to reach all students to do my check ins. I will get around to each student.

It has been awhile since we were under the same roof, with the early shutdown (online learning) and Christmas Break. So, welcome back!!!

I will be doing a check in with all students eventually.  It may take some time to do this but I will get around to each student.

Here we are again at the most loved time of the year – Christmas.  Even though there is no snow yet, we are still rockin’ around the Christmas tree. Virtual has become a go to word for now…virtual school, visits, parties and all other things we are used to doing in real life. So, grab your computer, phone, tablet, whatever and celebrate like you’ve never celebrated before…but safely!

Global History 12 – What a great class.  We have had very interesting discussions with respect being paid at all times. We have only 2 Units left to go and I am confident we will finish them. Students are working on case studies from The Pursuit of Justice Unit and will be beginning the next unit on Social Change.

Sociology 12 -  I am enjoying teaching this subject to this class.  We are finishing the unit on Crime and Deviance and will be beginning the next one, Race and Ethnicity, 

next week. I look forward to the very interesting discussions we have as a  class.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Hope all is going well,

As we move to online learning/classes, I will still be available for the students who are in Jr/Sr High School.  I will be popping into their online classes periodically to do daily check-ins and to let them know that I will be there to have those chats.

For the students who need to chat, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at bbrooks@lskschool.ca and we can schedule a time.

Keep an eye out on our LSK Facebook page and LSK website for updates and some mindfulness worksheets to help your mental health.  These worksheets aren't just for our students, they are great for everyone!!  

Be mindful and be safe!

Thanks,
Bryan Brooks
