Tuesday Morning Memo

 

Tuesday Morning Memo – La classe de M. Boyer

 

I hope everyone had a great long weekend.  This week is Catholic Education Week.  I’ve included a list of activities for students to celebrate our catholic faith.   There is a bit less work in other subjects this week due to the Catholic Education week activities and it being a short week.

 

My online meeting hours will be:

 

Wednesday

Grade 6 French – 11am-12pm.  Grade 7 French: 1pm-2pm.

Room code: contact M. Boyer

 

Thursday: Grade 6 Math – 11am-12pm.  Grade 7 Math 1pm-2pm.

Room code: contact M. Boyer

 

Friday: Grade 6 Social Studies 11am-12pm    Grade 7 Social Studies 1pm-2pm

Room code: contact M. Boyer

 

IMPORTANT:  If your child is using a tablet or phone to do their work, I ask that you install a free app called “Explain Everything Whiteboard”.  We’ve been using Explain Everything to provide an extra layer of collaboration and interactivity during our meet times and it works really well.  If you are using a computer or laptop to connect you do not require the app.

 

Here are this week’s activities.

Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,

so you watch over your Church.

with a spirit of profound respect.

Grant this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
