Creeker Family Memo # 19 - Monday Week of January 11th, 2021

Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

Good morning Creeker Families – welcome to week 2 of learning in our “new year” !


Orange Protocols – we continue to be in the “orange phase” this week throughout the province. Students will continue to wear masks throughout the day other than when they are eating, working quietly ( and spaced out in the classroom)  or in Phys Ed.  Students are adapting so well to remembering to wear their masks and they are troopers around this!  Way to go, Creekers!  Please send 2 masks and 2 water bottles with your child every day.


Arrival to School 8:15 AM – 8:15 is our entry time and duty teachers  and Admin need to head indoors to begin the day at that time.  For those parents  who are  having difficulty getting here by then, please try to speed things up by 5 minutes; it will benefit your child’s start to the day and will avoid disruption of office routines.


Social Emotional Learning – The Power of YET – this week, as part of social emotional learning around self-awareness, we are working throughout the school on the ‘power of yet”  - students are encouraged to remember that although they may not be able to do something now to think and say “ I can’t do it.. YET” . This is a way to reframe negative self-talk and replace it with a more optimistic, growth perspective.


District STEAM online – every year, students are able to participate in the District STEAM Fair. Teachers can either run this in their classrooms or parents can have their children participate individually.  We will be receiving more info on this from our District in the weeks to come, but just wanted to put it out there for your consideration.
