Weekly Message #5-13

images-2It’s hard to believe that we have only been back a week.  As usual, we have packed everyday with activities for ourselves and our students.  We start this week with sadness in our hearts as we have learned of the passing of Sousana’s young nephew, Peter.  I know that many of you will be in touch with her in the coming days – Moberly has always been a caring place and your kindness to others is much appreciated.

On a happier note, I wanted to let you know that two different on call employees have commented to me in the last week about the kindness and positive nature of our students.  I know that we have been spending a lot of time recently discussing hallway and playground behaviour and we will continue to brainstorm ways to  maintain our high expectations of our students. However, they really are a great bunch of kids and the ongoing feedback and support they receive from staff is a big part of who they are at school.  Thank you.

Tyson Shmyr is our new Community Link Coordinator (replacing Chris Fuoco).  I will be meeting with him to discuss Moberly’s support needs on Friday at 9:30 at MacKenzie.  Please pass on any ideas you might have about the Community Link programs.

The FSA is coming up soon and Karl will be assisting you in setting up times to do the online portion of the tests.  Stay tuned for a short meeting to outline this year’s plan.  Please jot down any questions you have for that meeting.

EVENTS THIS WEEK:

  1. Patti will be at a meeting at the VSB later on Monday afternoon (leaving at 2 ish)
