PMSS Grade 8 Rotations Update

Grade 8 ROTATIONS UPDATE

April 14th, 2020

The end of this week marks the official end to our 3rd Grade 8 rotation.  So what does your rotation class look like in the coming weeks?

At this time, students will remain in their current rotation with their current teacher.  We recognize that some students may have been looking forward to taking the course in their next rotation.  While this may be disappointing, we want to ensure that students are able to continue to connect with the teachers they know during this time.

Your grade 8 rotation teacher will be reaching out to provide you with learning opportunities, and to clarify how to access information on activities being provided.

Your teachers recognize that families and students have a lot going on and that there is a need for flexibility   

Please contact your teacher to discuss any questions that you may have as we move forward together.

Physical and Health Education

April 2020 Update:  The Physical and Health Education (PHE) department is hosting all their PHE classes, including Yoga Fitness classes and Fitness and Conditioning classes on Google classroom.  All online lessons are posted at Google Classroom. Please contact your individual teacher for instructions to join your Google classroom.
