Pasco eSchool Elementary, Week 9

October News

Hello Elementary Ninja Nation.


As the first quarter of the 2020-2021 school year comes to a close, we want to express how very proud we are of all our Ninjas and Learning Guides. The eSchool team has been so impressed with all of the learning and growth that has occurred this quarter and are excited about the learning to come!


Red Ribbon Week

We have a week full of fun activities planned for October 26 - 30th. Check out our Red Ribbon Week activity list on the MyLearning Announcement page when you log into your courses this week!


IRLA Conferences

Learning Guides, please make sure your ninja is signed up to receive an IRLA conference at least two times per month. This is an important DBA (Discussion Based Assessment) time between ninja and teacher. These meetings are formative assessments that help teachers determine misconceptions and gaps in reading as well as strengths. It is important that this time is uninterrupted by Learning Guide prompting and support. We understand that it can be difficult to listen in as your ninja pauses to think through answering questions with their teachers. We call this, productive struggle, and it is a healthy way for your child to build problem solving skills, independence, and critical thinking.


Dress Code

Ninjas must come to conferences, on campus sessions, and live lesson webinars fully dressed in an outfit that meets school dress code requirements. Appropriate dress includes shirts, shorts, dresses, jumpers, and/or long pants. It is not appropriate for our Ninjas to attend live lessons in pajamas, swimwear, or dressed in a manner that is too casual for live attendance at a school campus.
