A Thank You Message To Our Students on Student Appreciation Day

Article Posted: Wednesday, June 09, 2021

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

On Wednesday, June 9 and Thursday, June 10, over 200 schools in the four Anglophone School Districts across New Brunswick will celebrate the first-ever province-wide Student Appreciation Days. The celebration will take place over two days to accommodate schools currently using the blended learning model (learning one day at home and one day at school); however, some schools will be celebrating at a later date due to Covid-19 closures or for other operational reasons.

In a year like no other, students in New Brunswick and across our country have risen to the challenge and continued learning, growing, and doing great things. They have demonstrated their resiliency by wearing masks, being apart from friends, adapting to online learning, social distancing, missing out on sports and extra-curricular activities, and so much more. This celebration is to show appreciation and gratitude for all they have done. We also want to extend our gratitude to parents and guardians for modelling kindness and patience, especially during difficult times.

A lot of planning has happened behind the scenes to make these days unforgettable for our almost 70,000 Kindergarten to Grade 12 students in the Anglophone school system. Posters and stickers were delivered to every school in advance, and students will be receiving video messages from some very influential Canadians. Schools will be sharing the days' events on social media using the hashtag #NBStudentAppreciationDay.

We hope everyone enjoys these special days!
