Self Care

Hello Everyone!

   Please read the “Big List of Self Care Activities” and comment with at least one activity that you will do this weekend to take care of yourself!  Not all of these activities can be done right now BUT there are a LOT of things we can still do!  If it is not on the list, add it!

When commenting Put first name and Last Initial.  No need to put in your email.  Your response will not appear right away as I need to “approve” it.

Getting Started!

Hello Everyone!!

     Your period 2 teacher from the school will be contacting you over the next two days.  We will be reaching out to connect with you to see how you are and if there are any supports needed going forward. 

For our classes, this will be the “Hub” of where you will get all of your information, assignments and updates from me.  We will also be using Microsoft Teams to discuss and connect on any troubles or questions you are having in our new way of learning.  The important thing you can do right now is relax, do not stress and we will work together to ensure everyone gets supported in their learning.

For those of you who are asking “What can we do now?”

First, please make sure you have access to Office 365 Teams, which you will need to log on using your school email.  The link below describes how to do this:

How to Sign in to O365

Second, you can start by completing the Digital Citizenship Quest on the learning portal below

Burnaby School District Continuing Learning

  • Go to the Student section and follow the links to the Digital Citizenship Quest.

Remember, this will be a transition for everyone and to take time to breathe!

Looking forward to chatting with you all soon!

Welcome Back to …..Online School?

Hello Everyone!

   I hope you were able to take some time during these last two weeks to relax and focus on you! We are all in this unprecedented time together and we will figure out what school will look like going forward.  I want you to take a deep breath with me and understand that this is new for us all and we will get through it together.  I will  be here to support you through this time and help you keep up to date.  Do not hesitate to email me (amanda.hemingway@burnabyschools.ca) at any time during this process.  We are working hard to figure out how to connect with you all.   Be patient, and we will be checking in with you soon.
