WEEK OF OCTOBER 23 - OCTOBER 27

Hi Grade Two Families, 

I hope you had a wonderful long weekend! The staff spent their Friday and Saturday at the Vancouver Convention Centre attending a conference with tons of other teachers! It was a great two days of learning. I listened to fantastic speakers who shared about provocations and inquiry and what that might look like in the classroom. I also attended powerful sessions on self-regulation and how to integrate First Peoples' Principals of Learning. There were many takeaways and lots of neat things I can't wait for us to do together! 

Please don't forget to sign up for a conference time. Thank you to all the families who have done so already! I'm looking forward to seeing all of you on Friday!
