It’s been a bit of an odd couple of weeks with just a few days in each of the past two weeks but nonetheless…we are working very hard in Kindergarten!
It’s been a strange time for all of us. The children have been such troopers in managing all of health and safety protocols (endless hand washing and hand sanitizing to the point where we are worried now about the dry skin on their hands), social distancing as best they can and mask wearing for those who are comfortable wearing one. We’ve been trying hard to provide as much of our regular Kindergarten program as possible, and tweaking things gently to make activities safe for the children. This is primarily during Centre Time, where we have reduced from 4 to 2 children at a Centre (since September), spacing when seated and using all sinks available to us so the children are not gathering too much during hand washing. We are really proud of the children and their resilience in coping with change.
We’ve been busy making lots of Easter Art.
And we’re continuing to forge ahead in the Alphabet and our work in Numeracy.
Our next big event coming up is our Student-Led Conferences which the children will be completing at home with you due to Covid-19 restrictions. From us, you can expect your child to bring home their big Owl envelope with the contents of the Student-Led Conferences, an agenda and an opportunity to reflect and talk about their schoolwork. The agenda and reflection should be returned to school following your conference. We will have a lot more information for you in the coming weeks. Please note on your calendar that Student-Led Conferences are Wednesday, April 28 and Thursday, April 29. Dismissal is at 1:20 pm for Kindergarten both days. If your child is attending Camp Ridgeview, please make your arrangements for early pick-up.
