Dear Parents and Students,
After an unusually busy week last week, all the hard work has paid off. We have all of our students at school for full days now. There are still firm Covid prevention measures in place, but it is very nice to see all our senior students back in school. The longer classes are giving teachers time to work with every student in class. Teachers are able to check on progress and answer questions in person. Grade 10-12 teachers are reporting that they are enjoying the double blocks every day to spend more time with their students. This is a time to give a big thank you to all the teachers and educational assistants who worked tirelessly on Thursday and Friday to move furniture, set up classrooms, and prepare for the big changes. A special thanks also goes to our Office Administrator, Alex Sullivan. Alex did all of the computer work to meld classes and get the attendance program ready for the full day program. It was a big job!
This week includes Earth day so let’s reflect on our blessings, our clean air and water, and the beautiful environment that is our Yukon home.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalms 19:1

Over the next two weeks, we will be participating in the OurSchool survey. All schools in Yukon are administering this survey to measure student engagement, increase student involvement & sense of belonging at school.

Report Cards And Student Led Conferences – Thank You!
Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend the Student Led Conferences last week. For those of you who were not able to attend, your child’s report card was sent home in the mail. If you would still like to meet with your child’s teachers, please contact them and arrange a time.
Warmer Weather Means Get Some Sunshine!
With our warmer days we really want our students to get some time outside, especially at lunch time. A lot of grade 8 and 9 students are still spending most or all of their lunch break inside and on their phones. Please encourage your child to get outside now that we have warm weather. It is healthier and better for keeping alert and awake after lunch.
Because of the senior students going back to full time studies, any lunch time tutoring that was happening between a senior student and a junior student can no longer be accommodated. If the junior would still like to receive tutoring, they are encouraged to talk to Ms. Cann to make alternate arrangements to see what else can be made available.
Have a good week,
Katrina Brogdon, Principal and Alethea Wallace, Vice-Principal
