Welcome new students to Division 7! Leave a comment below and say hi!
It looks like we have a week left until back to school - for me anyway. It seems you have all been given an extra 2 days of summer, while teachers head back to learn about health and safety protocol. Hopefully you are all able to squeeze a little fun out of the remaining bits of summer vacation before you are all "officially" grade 5s!
Summer has been interesting here. A lot of hanging around the house. We went camping for a few days in Penticton, which was nice. Hot, but nice. We swam in the lake a lot, which definitely helped with the heat.
Both of my sons played baseball this summer. Between the two of them, I felt like I was at a baseball diamond 5 times a week. It was still nice to get outside and have them doing something - and baseball seems to be the most socially distanced outside sport there is. Win-Win.
We did the drive-thru PNE, went to the outdoor swimming pool, celebrated Jon's 8th birthday, went on lots of walks and played lots of sports. Also got to watch sports - NHL playoffs in the summer is a neat idea! We had some bigger plans that had to be cancelled, but I think we made the best of it. I hope all of you did as well! Enjoy your last week and a bit and I will see you back at Mackenzie soon.
Ok, so it took me 3 weeks to actually post something. Sorry about that. I was really enjoying the minimal technology aspect for summer. Definitely enjoyed it! I've posted a few pictures - basically having fun at home. Even the camping was in the backyard!
Hope you are all doing well. Drop me a comment and let me know how you are doing and what you have been up to. I'll try to post more going forward!
This Blog will provide updates on what is happening in the classroom, as well as a small peak into the life of the teacher outside of school.
Welcome Students and Parents of Division 7!
I hope that this will be a place where we can better open the lines of communication between myself, the students and the parents/guardians. I also hope to use this space as part of my general encouragement to use various forms of technology to help us learn in different and meaningful ways.
