Day 91 (of 183) on winter activities & wonky school days 

Day 91 (of 183) on winter activities & wonky school days 

Sometimes I chuckle to myself when people talk about the importance of each and every school day – because each and every school day is not created equal. 
The last day of January for instance – for my secondary aged daughter, it is a “semester turnaround” day – which may mean more if she weren’t already home sick strep throat. But more of an acknowledgement of the pursuit of balancing terms for the school year. 

My sons alternate program was meeting up with other such programs in the district for an adventure on one of the local school mountains. I always like the idea of “community connections” that these alt programs do – especially as they work with students who don’t fit the traditional stereotype of a student and re helping us redefine how we support these learners. 

My youngest daughter got to see a group of students at a district event: a pirate loppet – a huge cross country ski activity that helps promote year round activities in our community.  Dress like a pirate and ski for a couple of kilometres. During a day of learning…..or redefining what at day of learning looks like. 

  

Learning is different for each of our learners. Keep the mantra going: one size does not fit all.
