It was the first day of school yesterday and an adjustment for everyone as everyone came out of the starting blocks.
|Once the students arrive in the room, the year officially is up and running.|
The Grade 7 HSP and ISP class has been combined this year. As a group, we are 7C and will be going on Rotary for Science, History/Geography [which I will be teaching], French, and Math. We have set up a Team Teaching model in Grade 7 for 2015-2016. When the students are out on Rotary in the core subject areas -- the subjects I mentioned, less French -- there will be two teachers in the classroom to assist with teaching and to provide support for the students from our class.
This model is new. I am sure there will be many questions and hurdles along the way, but the team, along with the AMG Administration, believe this will be a great model for the students.

You will be receiving a letter home with some information about the school year and the Grade 7 team.
