At SCIDES, we recognize that we learn, teach and work on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the NłeɁkepmx and Syilx people and we acknowledge our Metis communities and their contributions to the Aboriginal ways of being, knowing and doing in Canada.

The last month of the school year is here, a school year that was dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Together, we made it through! We hope our monthly themes along with the resources we shared were helpful to you, and we always appreciate you reading our blog and chiming in on our social channels. As the summer is close and the school year comes to an end we thought Joyful Endings would be a great theme for this month. It's about finding joy in the moment, whether we're together in person or virtually, or even by ourselves. Joy can be found everywhere, anytime. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear what you're doing to find joy; connect with us on Facebook to share.

As the pandemic continues its grip on the world we have to remind ourselves that the days are long but the years are short (Gretchen Rubin). This will pass eventually, and while we're going through it, it's better to go through it together, with our important others. The power of personal relationships - with yourself and others - is such a big deal that we decided to make it our theme of the month for May. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear what you're doing to get and stay connected; connect with us on Facebook to share.
