Dear ASD-S Families,
On June 9th (and 10th for those
schools engaged in blended learning), over 200 schools in the four Anglophone School Districts across New
Brunswick will celebrate a province-wide Student Appreciation Day.
has been a global leader in fighting the spread of COVID-19, and our students
have been a major part of this. They have demonstrated their resiliency by
wearing masks, physical distancing, being apart from friends, adapting to
online learning, missing out on extra-curricular activities, events, and so
much more. This celebration is to recognize the challenging year they have had
and to show appreciation for their patience and understanding.
Tomorrow and Thursday, our schools will be taking the
opportunity to say thank you to our students in different ways, unique to each
school. While COVID-19 has impacted our ability to show school spirit in
the traditional ways, we hope this will be a fun and celebratory way to
show our students our gratitude. We
also want to extend thanks to parents and guardians for modelling kindness and
patience during these times and being positive role models for your children. Student Appreciation Day is our way of
showing appreciation to all for navigating a school year unlike any other.
