A grade 4 student at Rexton Elementary, Milee Millea, recently won the "Difference Maker of the Year” award presented by The Rick Hansen Foundation. This is a National award given to students who have made a difference in their own lives by overcoming personal challenges, as well as making a difference in their community and world around them.
Attached is a write up from her teacher, Tracy Lynds, (who nominated Milee for the award):
The 2020 Chaleur Turnaround Achievement Awards recognizes youth from our local schools who have overcome multiple barriers as a result of their effort, commitment, and perseverance and turned their situation around in a positive way. As well, it also recognizes the unsung heroes – the teachers and/or counsellors - who spend the time, effort and contribute to the youth’s journey to self-reliance. In light of the circumstance surrounding COVID-19, and its necessary precautionary measures, we cannot host the traditional banquet associated with this worthy recognition.
Anglophone North School District has always looked for ways to share and celebrate learning. This sharing and celebration has often taken the form of face-to-face gatherings like STEM Fest and Discover. Just because we can’t gather students and educators together, doesn’t mean there isn’t innovative and unique learning taking place in homes across our district.
Our teaching and learning look different right now and we want to find a different way to share, celebrate and support this learning.
We are inviting teachers to submit examples of student home learning.
