Cultivating Critical Thinking and Creativity in Responsive Learning Environments

Global School Play seemed to be a big success. I hope you have a chance to debrief this experience with the students to remind them of the important of free play (without screens!).

I sent an email letting you know that we are going to try to do our February "monthly" staff meeting via Yammer. You should have received an email inviting you to join the Yammer Group. If you have not, please let me know. I posted three discussion quesions. Please respond to these questions at a time and location that is convenient for you by the end of the month.

If staff are in favour of this format, this is what I propose for the rest of the year:

March - Yammer

April 5 - Meeting 3:45-5:00

May - Yammer

June - Meeting(s) as necessary to build classes, plan for next year, plan end of year activities, etc.

June 30 PA Staff - Meeting

Let me know what you think.

I would like to say once again what a pleasure it is work to with all of you! I saw this diagram below and it reminded me of why!

Have a great week!
