During this time of isolating and distancing, it can be very easy to feel as if you are alone with your emotions, and dealing with the stresses that comes with coping with this global pandemic. This is why now more than ever, it is so important to come together and support each other. From our principals, teachers, resource, and educational assistants, to our secretaries, custodians, kitchen staff, bus drivers, maintenance staff, security, librarians, counsellors and most importantly our students, WE ARE ALL HUSKIES, and we are no doubt, in this TOGETHER. Remember HBOIERC CARES!!
This section of out website offers both parents and students a location where you can link to teachers through email and where you can view teacher made pages. Not all teachers have made their own pages, but more and more are creating sites that contain specific course material. Please check it out.
Learning from Home - Ed - Sites
Teachers and parents are now looking for online content that will help the students to continue with the education process. We understand that not all students have internet access, but for those that do, the following site provides tons of links. The web resources are broken down by course. If you know of other websites that should be added to this page, please go to the contact page and send the link. During this difficult time we must not give up on finding different ways of learning. Enjoy!
Grade 3E of HBOIERC are learning about soils and the environment. They had the chance of digging up fresh vegetables, potatoes, beets and carrots. The digging and getting our hands dirty was so fun and exciting! They are very thankful and were humbled to take home for supper and for Thanksgiving! The next morning they said the potatoes were very delicious! Happy Thanksgiving from Grade 3’s.
