Today I am writing to you to share some of the thinking and planning that the EAB Leadership team are doing regarding the start of the 2020/21 school year, on Monday 3 August. Unfortunately nothing is certain in this new environment that we are operating under and the "new normal" calls for a great deal of flexibility.
A Toast from the Class of 2019
May 21, 2020
The High School Faculty has ended each week of distance learning with a brief organizational meeting, and, when the work day is done at 4:01, a toast. It is hard to explain to those who haven't seen it firsthand how hard EAB Teachers have worked to ensure that learning continues during the coronavirus pandemic and the toast has become a wonderful "tradition" that has allowed us to celebrate each other and end the week with a shared laugh.

Distance Learning - Day in the Life of a Grade 5 English Language Learning Teacher
April 24, 2020
I bolt awake at 3:11am wondering if we have forgotten anything in the distance learning slides: Did I forget a birthday? A meeting? Again, wake up at 4:46 thinking to myself, Did I edit the slides for tomorrow yet? Do we have a team meeting first thing? When I finally wake up at 6:30, I have already double checked my phone about 3 times making sure I haven't forgotten anything. I probably have.
