The Reading Challenge Results Are In…

Hi Everyone,

Drum roll please…the results for the first 2 weeks of our Epic Books for Kids Reading Challenge are in! All Grade 2 classes did extraordinarily well. In fact, we surpassed the combined goal we set for June 19th.

I am proud to announced that the classes have read 4294 books! Congratulations!

As of now…

2A read 1197

2B read 1243

2C read 1854

Total = 4294

So a new goal has been set…10 000 books by June 19th. We can definitely achieve it! Keep up the great reading!

I am thrilled with 2A’s results. Since May 7th, students have read 697 stories! That’s a tremendous accomplishment! We’re almost caught up to 2B.

K-9 Learning Reports: A letter from Tammy Hubley-Little

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Since March 23rd, our focus has been on literacy, numeracy, and student health and well-being in kindergarten through grade 9. During this time, home learning materials have been provided for students. Our goal has been to provide opportunities for learning, rather than evaluation.

As the year progresses you have been asking about your child’s achievement and report cards. In June, you will receive an end of year report with comments from your child’s teachers. There will not be an end of year achievement mark because we have been focusing on student learning in specific areas of the provincial curriculum.

Students in K-9 will not be retained as a result of COVID-19 and will move to the next grade level.

In the fall, teachers will be using a revised curriculum to teach your child. The curriculum will include key aspects of learning from this school year that your child will need to learn as they continue in the next grade.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning, please contact your child’s teacher.

Kind regards,

Tammy Hubley-Little
Director of English Education, Programs and Services
Department of Education and Lifelong Learning
