Manitou Springs Middle School
January 22, 2021
Dear Manitou Springs Middle School Families,
Google Meet schedule for at home students
Staying engaged at home
We would like to partner with parents to ensure all students are fully engaged during their at home learning. The staff at MSMS recognizes that it can be difficult for students to stay engaged without the structure of being physically at school. Our staff will take the following steps to support students who leave Google Meets early or join but do not participate:
First time: the teacher will touch base with the student to get more information about why the student was not engaged and clarify their classroom expectations.
Second time: the teacher will inform parents and work together to problem solve how to best keep the student engaged.
Third time: administration will set up a meeting with the parents and student to discuss a support plan that includes possible interventions to keep the student engaged.
Yearbook updates and reminders
8th grade families: It's that time of year again! Email Ms. Fodrie (email@example.com) your baby picture with the student's name listed by Friday, February 12th to make sure it's included in the yearbook or the continuation video.
ALL families: Haven't bought this year's yearbook yet? No problem! Go to MySchoolBucks to purchase today! If you have any pictures of COVID-safe activities with students or at home learning, please email them to Ms. Fodrie (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration.
After School Tutoring (National Junior Honor Society)
