Happy Easter

Dear RC Mac Families,

We hope you took advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and enjoyed some off-line family fun.

This week Teachers will continue to work with students and parents online. Hopefully we are all beginning to establish some healthy routines as we move along with learning and working from home. Teachers are attempting to keep some of the familiar activities and routines from the whole year in place even online as these are comfortable for students and they know the expectations of their teachers for these types of assignments.

Please note that teachers are listening to the feedback they receive from parents. Many families have responded eagerly to the lessons and activities provided last week so you will receive similar for this week. We are truly fortunate to be part of a strong, capable school community. A few families have not sent work or not yet been able to do any work due to the hectic pace of the parents' work as we all adjust to a new way of doing everything. For those families, we will reach out and see how we can better support your child with their learning.

Drop Off/Pick Up System

School Office hours are 8:30-3:30 daily. We will have a small blue table outside the front door for any drop off or pick up of items. If there is anything you need at all please contact Ms. Latulippe and myself. We are happy to help.

Term 3 Report Cards

Teachers will be expected to write report cards in June based on work students are doing from home this Spring. Please try to take photos or share documents with work your child is doing from home. School work can be submitted at the end of the week or each day depending on your family schedule at home. If paper works best for you then we can also arrange drop off/pick up of student assignments as may be preferred for some students and families. Thank you.

Coming Soon

Thank you for sharing your toilet paper roll art work with me. Each addition of the RC Mac Community News will have some info for parents and some fun ideas for students. The next edition will feature fun activity ideas from our lovely Education Team.

Have a wonderful week!

Family Walks with a little EXTRA:

Try to make your family walk more interesting by playing I spy with my little eye.

If you want a challenge on your walk, choose a new activity to do when you get to a new street. Do 10 jumping jacks, 10 toe touches, 10 squats, 10 tuck jumps.

Step Jumps: Find a step or a bench on your walk and jump up and down 50 times. Be careful. Take a break if you need to.
