I feel incredibly proud of our Pride Week. Particularly, of the work students have put into making this week meaningful. Thank you to our Diversity Committee and all staff involved in the events of this week. While I am not losing sight of the significant work ahead, I am heartened to know that our community wants to make a difference, broaden perspectives and build an inclusive and caring school culture.
I want to congratulate you on everything that you have done. Your persistence and perseverance are really paying off. You have gone through some very difficult weeks and months this school year and now you are almost finished.
I know many of you are feeling that sense of loss that our school year may not end in the school building. I know we had to cancel many things you have been looking forward to. I hope that when we are back in the building, we will all appreciate those things even more. We will do our very best to make sure we celebrate our graduates when the time comes and make the most of whatever the circumstances are that lie ahead.
While online learning may not be ideal, you are certainly making the most of it, and for that reason we have also put a link in this week's Week @ A Glance. We want to hear from you what is working well for you and your family and where we can improve to make this online experience better.
First, I would like to say congratulations to all staff and students for completing your first week of online learning. It is remarkable that we managed to pull that off together, all of us, including parents, staff and students.
Welcome Greenwood to your first virtual assembly. I wish I could welcome you in person, and I’m sorry that I can’t. Circumstances are different and it is a very difficult time for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic is having a very real effect on all of us at Greenwood as well as all of us in Canada and around the world. Together we will make the most of it.
