Message from the Assistant Head of School

March has certainly been a month of change at Fieldstone and in the wider world. We are proud that our commitment to student success is unwavering. During our period of campus closure, we will continue to provide our students with a world-class education. 

In our first week of online learning support, students and teachers have been extremely positive in their reflections on their digital classroom experience. Our community’s resilience, positivity, and adaptability has been nothing short of inspiring. We are excited about navigating this new territory with our community.  

Wishing you a restful and safe weekend,

Stephanie Long – Assistant Head of School

 

 


Upcoming Dates to Put on Your Calendar

 

  • April 10: Good Friday (No School)
  • April 13: Easter Monday (No School)
  • April 20: Mid-term reports are released (last day for an evaluation to count towards these marks is April 13th).

 


Online Learning Expectations

As we have moved to an online platform until we can return to the classroom, please remember to treat the online classroom as if it is the regular classroom. This means:

  1. Showing up on time and participating in the opening activity.
  2. Participating throughout the full class.
  3. Submitting your assignments in a timely fashion. 

Cambridge Examinations:

The May/June Cambridge Examinations have been cancelled. 


Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test

A reminder that this test has been canceled due to COVID-19 school closures. We are confident that our students benefited from the literacy support they received this year and look forward to continuing our year-round commitment to improving student literacy.

The literacy requirement for June 2020 has also been waived by the Ontario Ministry of Education due to this unprecedented situation. 


Keeping our Community Active

Our Athletic Director has compiled a useful list of activities and tips HERE

 


 

Student Handbook and Student Code of Conduct

While learning has moved online, the Code of Conduct is still in effect and it is important that we maintain our positive community standards in all types of Fieldstone learning environments.

All members of the community are expected to understand and follow these expectations.

Community Reminders and Updates

Co-Curriculars: What is still running despite COVID-19?

While the current COVID-19 school closures prevent student groups from meeting on site, some co-curricular activities continue to run. For example:

Prefects: We are still communicating in our Google Classroom.

Duke of Ed: Participants have been reminded to continue to log their hours. Ms. Long will be “meeting” with them virtually to help them to stay on track. Progress may be slightly delayed, given the changing circumstances, but we are committed to supporting our students’ achievement and will work with them to meet their goals in this programme.



Social Media

We’re still showcasing moments of learning and successes online! We have so much to be proud of. Please follow us on social media to keep up with our latest events, photos, and activities.

Homestay Families: A Valued Part of our Fieldstone Community

We would like to invite Fieldstone families to be part of international students’ Canadian experience. Homestay families promote Canadian cultural immersion by integrating students into family life. Short-term options are available, as we look forward to welcoming two students from Europe next year on their “Year Abroad” experience.

Interested families are asked to please contact Ms. Kristine Foy by email kfoy@fieldstonekcschool.org or by phone 416-854 4897 today.
