Summertime greetings from the halls of PCS,
As summer continues and we enjoy the amazing natural playground that God has created, the leadership team at PCS continues to meet regularly. Yes, the hallways are quiet and the buildings are getting their annual maintenance and cleaning but, the offices are quite alive as we continue to explore opportunities for September.
No doubt you either watched last week's BC Ministry of Education announcement live or have heard discussions about the in-class learning plan for the fall. We were also watching closely and are working with various partners to help develop a restart plan for 2020/21 that helps support the students and families at PCS as effectively as possible. Thank you for your prayerful support as the staff team works to develop the details of the plan.
We will be welcoming students back into the school in their "learning groups"on September 8 and 9. Prior to that time we will have given families much more information about the details of the schedules, the ins and outs of learning groups and the plans for moving forward as a community. For now, please watch for communications from the school as follows:
1. Friday videos: we hope to re-launch the "Lewis' Lens" video series on Friday mornings. I will be interviewing various people to help answer your questions about the fall. These will come out via email and will also be posted at myPCS.ca/covid19. This week I will be chatting with Heidi Young-Thompson, our Director of Learning.
2. Monday Memo: similar to the regular "Thumbnail" which comes out on Wednesdays during the school year, the Monday Memo will be a written communication from me to the community. My hope is to keep you informed of the latest plans and goings-on at the school.
My prayer is that as you start to think about the fall that you would also be able to embrace the change of pace that summer offers. May this be a time of shalom and safety for your family. Blessings as we all walk this journey together.
