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.

Happy Monday Everyone!!

Last week of May, heading into our Last couple weeks of school!

As you all have heard, the school will be re-opening on part time basis starting June 1st.  You will soon be given the information on when and how you will be able to access the school.  I want to reassure everyone, that attendance is OPTIONAL.  You will not lose any marks or miss out on any information by remaining online.  All of the notes, assignments and resources will still be posted on my blog and collected through teams.  The “In school” portion will be designed to help those individuals who need additional support or those of you who still have a missing test from before spring break.

The time you will be able to access the school are still being determined and you will find out sometime this week.  I am still happy to do Teams chats with those individuals who need additional support but do not feel comfortable coming into the school.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!

I hope you all had a well deserved long weekend and had a chance to go out and enjoy the sunshine!

Fitness Log # 3 is coming your way this week and will be collected May 29th.  I want you all to continue getting your weekly activity.

This weeks challenge:  I want you to step out of your comfort zone and do an activity that you have either never tried before or are new to.  For example, if you have been spending your activity time going for walks, maybe try a jog or run.  If you have been doing Yoga, maybe try a fitness circuit.  If you have been practicing a particular sport, take an online dance class.  TRY SOMETHING NEW!
