Last Week of Home Learning – Week 10!

Dear Families:

Good evening! Can you believe it is the final week of Home Learning? I have attached (uploaded, on the Teacher Pages) the final links/sheets.

Thank you so much for all of your help and dedication to your child’s continued education. It certainly has been a very difficult and different way of life for each and every one of us. However, in some ways it has been a time to slow down, reflect on what is truly important, get more in tune with nature (I have never seen so many gardens and raised garden beds, this spring!) and have more quality family time…more time to talk and listen with your child(ren)!

Thank you for continuing to read daily with your child, perhaps write a few times a week, and make words with letters…to help prevent the ‘summer slide’! I hope you have an enjoyable summer, whether we are wearing masks, physically distancing, or enjoying the summer fun!

The report cards will be going out at the end of this school year and I will include the Roots of Empathy Certificate, etc. As you know, I did include a Memory Book in your Scrapbook for you and your child to complete, if able! Take care, stay safe, happy and kind! I will see you all in the Fall…however it will look! :)

Yours in Education,


Christine MacKenzie

Week 9 Home Learning (Next week -10- is our last week)

Hello Families!

        Thanks to all those who sent along their wishes for Baby Elizabeth and their Short Story of their child’s favorite; sad; exciting; proudest; happiest; scariest moment in time, during your Home Learning activities at home! For those who haven’t yet sent…I am anxiously awaiting your email or snail-mail!!  

        Students, please continue: to read as often as you can; let your families read to you; work on Zorbit’s Math or/and Splashmath; Raz Kids-A to Z Learning; your ‘homework’ sheets; and some of the activities attached. It’s so exciting when I receive your pictures of your tadpoles growing, your plants growing, your fishing adventures, your cooking, riding your bikes, practicing you homework (writing, drawing, etc)…you are becoming smarter every day! Keep up the great work in these areas, students! And please thank your families for helping you during these months at home! Aren’t they pretty amazing parents/grandparents/ guardians/families??!!

Take care, stay safe and happy,

Yours in Education,

Miss Christine MacKenzie
