ENERGETIC LEARNING CAMPUS YEARBOOK UPDATE As the world adjusts to change, one thing that remains constant is the yearbook tradition. Energetic Learning Campus is happy to announce that we are working to ensure that the 2020 yearbook is completed, printed and delivered to our students. This yearbook will capture the story of this unique school year. Since copies are limited and school schedules continue to change, we ask that you please order your yearbook online.
Dear Families, The ELC staff hope you are all safe and healthy! We miss seeing the kids already! At this challenging and changing time, families can find district updates on COVID-19 and the ‘Continuity of Learning’ Plan at the District website: www.prn.bc.ca The first week back from Spring Break is a planning week for staff. This time will allow staff to work on the ‘Continuity of Learning’ Plan. The learning activities that they are planning are not expected to replicate the normal schedule in a classroom. Our teachers will be working hard to create lessons and activities that will enable the students to continue their growth in different areas. These learning activities will look different from class to class. You can expect an initial communication from your child’s teacher by the end of this week. Teachers will be sending out their weekly overview and daily lessons starting on Monday, April 6. I will be emailing a Google Form for students to fill in if they would like to have their belongings from their locker and/or if they require access to technology. We have a limited number of Chromebooks that we can lend out if your family does not have access to a device. We will have a pick-up procedure in place by the end of the week. The school is not open to students, parents or other members of the community. This is to ensure the utmost safety protocols that we have in place for our staff. Information is changing on a daily basis and I will be sending out updates as needed. Please continue to check the school website at elc.prn.bc.ca for information. If you have any questions you can call the school at 250-263-9855 or reply to this email. Please note the hours of availability for reaching the school by phone this week is 8:00-9:00 and 10:00-3:00. Thanks in advance for your patience, as we work together to do our best to support each other. Warm Regards, Lori Coulter Vice-Principal

Please stop by the ELC tomorrow, May 31, between 10:30am and 12:30pm to help us celebrate our community focused project. Our students were asked “How can I make a difference in our community?” The exhibition will be set up like a trade show where visitors can walk through the school and interact with the different student groups, hearing from them how they tried to make a difference and what they learned in the process. We hope that you will have time tomorrow to come down and celebrate with our students their plan on how to make our community a better place 🙂

When we teach our children emotional regulation, we give them a higher chance of growing up happy, confident, and satisfied. Join Sarah for 1 of 3 parent talks to learn how to be an emotion coach.
