Distance Learning Expectations & News

Hello Families,

Thank you all for the hard work you have been putting in while we’re away.   Please continue to pay attention to any OptionC alerts that may come directly from the school.

Attendance: Each day, a photo is posted to our ClassDojo page.  Parents must ‘like’ the photo between 8am and 9am.  This will count as attendance and each family will be held responsible for completing daily work.  I will keep a written record of this each day as well.

Communication: All announcements, assignments and communication can be done thru ClassDojo and email.  Please don’t hesitate to email me during the day if need be at jwerfelman@scgstl.org.  I will answer questions within 24 hours.  Daily assignments will be posted within our Google Classroom. Please be sure to follow along with any OptionC alerts that may be posted from Mrs Charles.

Classwork: Assignments will be based on the work that was distributed and will be supplemented with Google Classroom and other electronic means.  Please check your Dojo each day for the specifics regarding each subject area.  There will be videos, interactive lessons and opportunities for live interaction from time to time.

Google Classroom:  Google classroom is set up like many social media sites with a wall and opportunities for users to interact with each other in the digital space.  In an effort to maintain as much normalcy as we can, we can continue to recognize things like birthdays or a tooth falling out.  Share those moments with us so we can celebrate them together! Students will be able to complete some of their work directly in the Google space and some will be a little more hands on where photos will need to be submitted per the assignment.  I will do my best to make this as straightforward as possible. 

 

Students will have work that engages each subject, Math, ELA, Science, Social Studies, and Religion,  the same way that they would if we were in the classroom.  Please be aware that every subject may not be specifically addressed each day, and  some assignments may take several days to complete.  We’ll be making great use of the black notebook that was sent home and full headings are still expected!

Again, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.  I’d like to make as much of this as straightforward as possible.  

Kind Regards, 

Ms Werfelman
