Four of our international students just spent the weekend in Victoria on a district field trip. They visited the Royal BC Museum and Parliament buildings, shopping and watching Spider-Man at the IMAX theatre.
The next district field trip will be to Whistler in January. See Ms Ikeda for details and permission forms in the coming weeks.
Thank you to the many parents, siblings, relatives and custodians who attended yesterday’s student-led conferences. It was wonderful to see the students having ownership over their own learning and being able to explain what they are doing in ELL and Humanities.
For all parents who were unable to attend yesterday’s sessions, please send me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know when you will be coming with your child. It is a required learning activity for all of my students.
You are welcome to come between Monday November 6th and Thursday November 9th between 8-8:30am, 11:15-11:55am, or 2:45-4pm.
Several parents requested some book recommendations. You can find some of my personal recommendations here or you can see recommendations from the BC Teachers’ Federation here: 100 Best Books Elementary and 100 Best Books Secondary.
