Weekly Announcements 9-8-20
Hello Fry Families-
Thank you for your patience and support as we completed our first two days of school.
Overall, the first two days went very well and staff are THRILLED to be working with students again! Teachers are learning and adjusting. Students are catching on very quickly! We are confident that things will evolve and improve over the course of the coming weeks! We appreciate the grace that staff are being given as they dive into different teaching methods and technologies. Our staff also seeks to give grace to students, parents and caregivers as we ALL work to adjust to virtual learning.
This coming week, if they haven’t already, classroom teachers will share their classroom schedule(s) with parents. Teachers will strive to implement these schedules, but it may take a bit more time, just as it would during in-person learning. Thanks for your understanding!
Last week students began introductions with their Specials Teachers (Music, Art and Physical Education). Students will have each Specials class “Live” with that teacher one time per week. For “Live” classes, the specials teacher will teach the class via students’ existing classroom Zoom. Students will also have each Specials class “Independently” one time per week. During this session, students will access instructional materials via google classroom and work through a Music, Art or PE lesson on their own.
Please see the attached letter from Mr. Laskowski, Fry PE Teacher, as he explains more about his instruction in a virtual setting.
Fry Curriculum Night will be held virtually next Tuesday, September 15th. Teachers will present information about the grade level content and classroom procedures via Zoom at 6:30 or 7:20 (these are identical presentations, simply repeated so parents are able to attend two different live sessions). Support Staff and Specials Teachers will be also be available for general questions via Zoom. Links will be emailed by teachers and a building list of links will also be shared with parents.
