How can I support my child with at home learning?

This week teachers reached out to parents about student missing assignments. Hybrid learning is new to both students and teachers and it is important to recognize both sides are going to learn and grow with this experience. Now that we have all settled into this new normal, learning at-home has naturally become more significant so we can ensure students are prepared for the next steps in their education. I realize this will come with growing pains on both sides and I am confident that we can work together to achieve success with each student. FTCSC has a tradition of excellent schools with high student achievement and I am confident we will continue this even though none of use expected our learning to be split between home and school.

Over the past week, several parents have asked how they can support learning at home. Here are few items that maybe helpful:

  • Get a Parent Canvas Observer Account
  • Ask your child to log in and then you can scroll through and view on the left side either "assignments" or "grades" and you can see what has been submitted, graded, and what is missing. Please note: you need to view your child's actual grade in Infinite Campus.
  • Encourage your child to participate in weekly office hours with their teacher. Each teacher has communicated those office hours on their Canvas pages. This is a set time during the week to get help.
  • Students should be participating every Friday in Q & A sessions that the teacher is setting up for them. Some of these are through discussion boards and some are through Zoom. They follow their regular school schedule for their times to participate.
  • Students can also email their teachers. All teacher emails can be found on our school website fcjh.ftcsc.org/staff/.

Together we will get through this, #weareflashes
