Distant Learning Parent Information

Bienvenu, welcome to our Distant Learning Parent Information Page.  This is where parents can come to find out important information to help their child with this new learning environment we find ourselves in.  At the beginning of each week, the goals for the week will be posted here.  Should parents have any questions or concerns, they can contact me or Mr. Zullo directly via email.  We will our best to respond in a timely manner.

We are using Teams to communicate and work with our students.  Monday through Friday we have Office Hours from 10:30 to 12:00, with the exception of Tuesday which are 1:00 to 2:30.  During this time, we are available for our students, to answer questions, to give lessons, to help navigate the new learning platform etc.  This is an opportunity for us to connect and keep our students accountable to their learning.

      This week the grade 7 and 8 immersion classes have the same goals.

      • Get used to the new platforms we are using for distant learning - 

      Microsoft Teams • Wildix               ✨Your Smarticles✨: Finding Flipgrid FANTASTIC!

      Microsoft Teams and Flipgrid.  Play around with them and check out the features we have not yet used (the students have used to hand in assignments etc. already)

      • First joint assignment: Distant Learning Rountine – due Friday 
        • Create a daily routine
        • Routines can be the same each day or can vary day to day
        • Routines must include when students plan to get up and go to bed, academic time, physical activity, leisure time (reading, arts & crafts, gardening etc), chores, non-educational screen time (to encourage them to limit how long they are spending online, binge watching, video gaming etc) and free time if they wish.  We've told the students it is important that they set out what they are going to do each day as routines are healthy, they increase self-confidence, lower stress etc.  Their schedules should be flexible as things will change.  
      • Spend time in the French language (speaking, reading, writing, watching, listening)
