Week of January 11, 2016 - B Week

Great Start!

Well that was a great first week back! The learning the kids were able to jump right into speaks volumes for the routine and relationships already built.

I was especially pleased with the depth of some of the work and the interdisciplinary nature of units that we're really beginning to see. I think that the students are getting valuable experiences, and I'm looking forward to keeping this momentum throughout the spring.

This week will really ramp up in mid year assessments for intermediate, and will continue for Primary. Let's remind the students to be flexible and respectful of spaces and noise.

Thanks for all you do!
