We had another great online assembly on March 1st. Parents are always welcome to log in through their child’s TEAMS account on the first Monday of the month at 2:15 pm on the All Students At Livingstone Team – Assemblies channel. Students in each division have been taking control and sharing projects and events from their classrooms. Very fun!
I started a YouTube channel called Ms. Froese Reads to build community during this time of social distancing. It is a channel posted on the All Students TEAM and features readings of picture books. Students and parents are encouraged to volunteer as a guest reader and submit a video clip of their reading. Students must have a signed media release for this project. There is also a sheet that can downloaded and completed to share favourite books with peers. Students can also submit online to firstname.lastname@example.org. There are random draws on Fridays for prizes.
Mr. Muress and I are also working on a list of books to support social emotional learning and a sense of belonging at the school. Students are encouraged to submit their favourite books in this area through the survey link on the Chapter Book Recommendations channel. There is also a random draw of Fridays for students participating in this way.
The Seismic Mitigation project is progressing according to plan. Staff are busy purging unneeded materials and getting ready for the move to the South Hill Swing site in July. Tomorrow several staff members will be going for a tour of the site led by Michael Rossi.
Enjoy your Spring Break from March 13th – March 28th. We’ll see you back on March 29th. I’m quite certain that much of the staff will be getting some well-deserved rest. It has been a very intense time. I hope you are able to enjoy some fun family time.
Ms. Carrie Froese
