IN THE TRENCHES
Mr. Uppal got creative with his students in history class by creating an interactive game of trench warfare. Trench warfare reached its highest development on the Western Front during World War I (1914–18). The sheer quantity of bullets and shells flying through the air compelled soldiers to burrow into the soil to obtain shelter and survive. By simulating a WW1 trench battle, students better understood the various difficulties our soldiers faced during battle.
FEIA FALCONS UPDATE
Monday, our student-athletes were sized during on-ice practice for their uniforms. Orders have been placed and we should have our gear next month – month and a half.
Due to the delay in getting the high school kitchen up and running, we’ve had to outsource our food over the last few weeks. We have received feedback from our students on the poor quality of the food they have received and want to extend our sincere apologies. We have heard their concerns and are in the process of implementing a net new solution until such time the kitchen is ready – we’re hearing this is two weeks away.
Dry-land training last Friday saw students shooting some hoops, playing dodgeball and really just having some fun as a group.
FEIA had planned to distribute the school uniform stock we had on-hand within the first few days of school and to then order all of the missing pieces once all students were registered. Since the school year started, we reconsidered our original plan as we agreed that it would not be fair to those students who receive their uniform to have to wear them while other students do not. We have placed the order and anticipate receiving and distributing all uniforms in the next 8-10 weeks based on our uniform provider’s projected turnaround timeline.
While we’ve had to put pause to our official after-school programming, we understand that our students can still use support with their academics outside of the classroom. In that, starting next week, we will be implementing ‘office’ hours for teachers to provide support to students with their homework and/or any challenges they may be having until 5pm. The official Homework Club schedule will be shared as soon as it has been finalized.
