A Letter From Your Principal
What a fantastic week! I would like to thank you all for your kind words of support, appreciation and understanding during this transition to an online school! While it has definitely been a whirlwind of a week, it appears that we are all getting more comfortable with the new norm! Our virtual classrooms are engaging, our attendance is near perfect and our students are displaying a work ethic over and above what we have previously seen! We really appreciate all of your support and understanding as our team has worked tirelessly to design a program that allows our students to continue thriving academically! I would like to recognize all of our team for their efforts! It takes very strong and committed individuals to be able to take on a massive change like this in such a short period of time! You have done truly remarkable things and I thank you very much for your commitment!
Fitness Training Edsby Group
Each day a fitness workout is posted with links to YouTube clips for each exercise. We encourage students to stick to a routine of waking up, completing a workout and attending their classes to start with a fresh mind. We also encourage students to post pictures and/or video clips of their workouts to motivate one another! They are also welcome to send them to me to be posted! Parents who are home are also welcome to utilize our fitness program!
Sport-Specific Skills Group
We have begun posting sport-specific skills drills in this group for students to continue to develop these skills while at home. Our Hockey and Soccer instructors will be creating videos of drills that you can work on at home. We have posted our first one from Stevie McSwain focusing on Stickhandling Skills! We will also be using this Edsby group to post information about our Guest Speakers and encourage students to post pictures and/or videos of them working on skill development at home to motivate one another!
