BES Notice April 7th 2020

Hello to all our BES Families,

By now you should have heard from your child's classroom teacher. They will be reaching out by Thursday morning at the latest by email with their online learning for April 8th and 9th. We have centralized everything at the following website http://besdistancelearning.weebly.com/ so please bookmark it on your computer. This site also includes tons of ideas around well-being, and an optional music assignment from Ms. Miller. We have also included links to many free resources that we think are great. There is also a blog we will update with any supports we find out about within the community or items we think are valuable in sharing. We are excited and nervous about beginning this new journey, so we ask for your patience and kindness. We promise we are going to do our best to make this work for you in the home with whatever you have, even if that is simply paper and pencil. We also want to celebrate things you are doing with at home learning, so if you want to email me a picture at besprincipal@ssrce.ca please do and I will post and compile pictures to our Facebook page. It can even be pictures about playing outside or a card game, or pictures about life skills such as washing dishes or the laundry. This is all great learning for our students.

On the website, you will also find the Flyer Learning Package distributed through Saltwire. It is important to note that this is for families with no internet access or who wish to do offline learning. You do not do both the flyer learning and the teacher driven learning online. However, if you want to pull additional things from the flyer feel free. It is important though to not overwhelm your learners, so they are excited about learning for all the days to come.

If you currently do not receive flyers, which is how the home offline learning packets will be delivered, you can sign up by contacting SaltWire (Chronicle Herald) at:
1-800-565-3339

Please continue to reach our to your child's teachers or administration if you need help in anyway.

Ms. Willow

Always the Proud Principal of BES
