Locks on lockers

Good morning,

If you find that you have a new lock on your locker, it means that your lock was open, you were missing a lock, or you had a non-school lock on your locker.

This applies to a very small number of students.

What to do next?  Stop by and see Mrs Tyoschin to

a) retrieve your lock that was left open,

b) arrange to purchase a lock if you have lost yours, and/or

c) … ask anything else I can help you with.

  • Offer advice on locating resources and using them efficiently.
  • Ask questions (i.e. to clarify thinking, to help with processing information, to extend knowledge etc.)
  • Help interpret sophisticated/difficult information.
  • Facilitate interviews, telephone calls, any electronic communication.
  • Goal setting and time management advice.
  • Be supportive and encouraging.
  • Celebrate achievements and successes with the students.

Please email any of the grade 5 teachers if you are willing to be a part of this exciting journey! Information meeting   NOT   Thursday 8th March at 3:15. TBD
