Dear Admiral Westphal Families,


Thank you for working alongside our teachers during this challenging time helping your child learn as best as possible under the circumstances. I have enjoyed regular updates from our teachers hearing about how at home learning is moving along. This is no easy feat and we understand that there are so many ways you can learn at home apart from the weekly 5 hours assigned by your child’s teacher. I appreciate everyone is doing the best they can and it can be challenging to keep up the motivation. Reading, talking to each other, doing and making things together is a very important part of learning too. Staying healthy and safe remains the number #1 priority. Attached are some on-line supports that you may find useful.


Term 2 Elementary Report Cards were scheduled to be distributed during the first two weeks of April.  However due to our current school closure this did not occur as planned.  Term 2 report cards, and IPP reports where applicable, will now be issued electronically.  A link to these report cards will be send to your email tomorrow. They will also be accessible via your child’s GNSPES account.


If you have not received a report card by May 14, or if you do not have email access, please contact the office at (902-435-8305) so that other arrangements can be made to provide you with your child’s report card information.
After reviewing the report card please let your child’s teacher know if you have any questions.


We sure miss our wonderful students and families!

Take care of yourselves.
