Greetings from Dr. Garcia
April 3, 2020
I know some families are concerned about their scholars' belongings. We will create a schedule for families to come in and collect belongings once it is safe to do so.
I had the opportunity to participate in some classroom meetings via Google Hangouts this week. I am thankful that we are still able to connect with each other, and it was wonderful to see so many faces! Please share any pictures you have of your scholars engaging in eLearning via email. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I plan on including them in the Courier and on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
Being reflective is one of our learner attributes and now is a great time to encourage time for reflection. Finding a quiet space, journaling, drawing, and talking to others are all ways that we can reflect on how we are feeling during this time.
Monday begins spring break so there will not be eLearning. I hope you are able to use this time to rest and recharge.
Our local community is doing a wonderful job providing meals for families during this time. Remember that meals are available to all of our families! Check out this great article that appeared in the South Bend Tribune: https://www.southbendtribune.com/news/education/st-joseph-county-k-12-schools-serving-thousands-of-meals-to-students-during-coronavirus-closures/article_159780ba-72c3-11ea-838f-4b09ae2f6e0c.html?fbclid=IwAR2eVvfntqqU7BOwiqYzJVmtk0pimWvbwh5amVtHKD5rZQ0NwmikVPgzRJE
Please stay safe, stay well and let your scholars know we miss them!
