Detailed program information and communication about Learning Services and counselling will be communicated by Principals to their individual school communities.
Montessori and educational research support hands-on concrete learning under the age of 6. In that spirit, our Casa and 5s program teachers have designed activities and lessons that emphasize that approach to learning.
For our older students who have experience with technology being a part of their learning, we will engage them in a blended curriculum that uses a variety of programs to assign, evaluate and track learning.
We will use myHSC class page as your first go-to resource, with emails and Google Docs for our older students.
Webex will facilitate group meetings for circles, story and novel reading, French, music, and physical education classes.
That interactive platform will also be available for students to meet one-on-one with teachers for personalized lessons, reading and planning.
Support from our Learning Commons and Living Room staff will provide yet another platform for student interaction and engagement in topics that resonate with our learners.
Hallmarks in our program, such as student choice, work geared to each child’s level and teacher guidance to balance curricular choices, will be honoured.
Teachers will monitor work, meet individually with students and plan their next curricular adventure just as they do in class.
Suggested timetables will be sent home for each level, and we ask parents to follow it if their at-home situation allows.
