A Letter From Your Principal
Dear Students, Parents & Guardians,
Well, we did it…more than just “did it” actually…Week one in our virtual classrooms was completed with much success! Attendance has been outstanding and students report that they are finding the classes valuable not only in terms of the curriculum content but also with respect to setting some routines and having interaction with their peers in class – normalizing things for them a bit in this unusual situation. Thank you, each of you, for your willingness to jump in and get to work here.
Parents: I know that some of you have had the opportunity to visit a class or two yourselves this week, and feedback from you and students has been pretty outstanding under the circumstances. If you haven’t had the chance to see a class in action yet, I encourage you to do so. I’ve been really impressed with the teaching and learning opportunities being created by our teachers; while adjusted on the quick in order to make them suitable for the virtual classrooms, the lessons are certainly not short on richness of experience.
Next week, I’m pleased to report that we’ll begin hosting some of our extra-curricular clubs virtually.
· EcoTeam will meet Mondays @ 1:15 pm
· Student Council will meet Tuesdays @ 1:15 pm
· Yoga will take place on Wednesdays @ 1:15 pm
· Yearbook Committee will meet on Fridays @ 12:30 pm
Ms. Palumbo has been hard at work organizing these behind the scenes so that our community can continue to connect and work together outside of our classes. Meeting IDs and passwords will be posted on our Edsby homepage by Monday. Until then, wishing you all a restful weekend.
