PHE 8 June 15-18

Happy Monday Everyone!!

We are in our final week of school, I know we are all looking forward to a restful summer 🙂

Final Assignment:

As a wrap up of the year I would like everyone to complete a final reflection on PHE 8.  Your reflection should be AT LEAST 1 page long (double spaced) and should reflect on how these past few months have gone.  There is no criteria for the reflection, other than I want to get a sense of how you have been doing during this time.  What were some challenges, what were some highlights, most importantly how are you and what are some strategies that you have used to get through this experience.  You can talk about your activity if you want but it is not required.

 

This reflection will be due on Friday 🙂

 

It has been a challenging year and I hope each and every one of you have taken time to reflect and make space for all of the emotions that accompany this journey we are going through.  It has been a pleasure being your teacher.
