COVID-19/Novel Coronavirus Update

Dear Wolfville School Families

It is the middle of April and we continue to work together to ensure our community stays as healthy as possible.  I know that with the sun shining the feeling of being cooped up grows, but hang in there I am sure in the long run things will get better quicker if we all continue to work together.  

 

I have been reviewing with pride the daily the communication and efforts that the Wolfville School Staff are doing to stay connected with students and families.  It is hard on everyone not to be together but these connections are very important for all of us. 

 

The teachers have spent hours changing their teaching strategies to support successful learning opportunities for their students while also knowing that flexibility is important because each family circumstance is different.  Please remember if you have questions regarding the information being sent home or the learning opportunities coming to your homes in the flyer reach out.  We are here to help.

 

Special comment to parents you are wearing so many hats these days I can only imagine the challenges you face daily.  The education piece is not intended to be overwhelming. Remember much of what is being sent home your children ages 8-14 should be able to do independently.  If they have question encourage them to reach out to their teacher or a friend. The younger children if there are old siblings they can help out.  I have talked to many parents and they are experiencing a wide span of feelings related to learning at home.  Some children are having a hard time starting to focus on school work and some are quick to finishing the work and seeking more.  

For the students who are reluctant to do their school work:

  • ~Try Frist …Then for example:  First we complete the math and then you can have 10 minutes to shoot hoops.
  • ~Set a work area.  This does not mean you need to have a space all the time (many of our homes just do not work that way) but expect your child to work for 15-30min on a topic. Before they start talk about where the best spot will be and what they need.  For example: If I am a student and I am working on a writing piece the weather is beautiful I may want to sit outside.  Sometimes the planning/organizing and flexibility of location encourages engagement. 
  • ~Encouraging the student to share their work with someone from their class.  We are for the most part social creatures and sometimes knowing that a friend is completing the work will help us getting going.

For the students who are completing the assignments and wanting more:

  • ~Extension of learning is always valuable and there are often natural ways students can take assignments one step further by being reflective or creative.
  •  ~The lessons in the learning material distributed in the flyers are also very good and we are happy to have students complete and share their learning.
  • ~Encourage children to share their learning with classmate or family by calling, emailing or mail.  Please remember as parents if you have questions or concerns we are here to help you may contact by email at WS@avrce.ca or 9025426050, by emailing your child’s teacher or the Principal dgraves@avrce.ca.

Sincerely,

Debbie Graves
