Weekly Update - Owl #6
2nd Week of Hybrid
A Great First Week
Grading and Remote Day Meetings
For this reason, it is critical that your child is turning in ALL assigned work and is attending house meetings on their remote days. These meetings are not optional. These meetings offer an opportunity for the professors to collect formative data. Asking questions of children in a small group setting allows us to truly see what a child understands. Having an opportunity to ask follow up questions or to ask a child to provide more detail really gives children many opportunities to think deeply and show what they know. We cannot assess your child or offer any additional help so that he or she can access the curriculum and meet learning standards if he or she is not present. Also, these meetings are included as part of the individual education plan service minutes for some children. Skipping out on meetings means skipping out on services that our district is ready and able to provide to your child.
In addition, these check-ins allow your child to receive help with executive functioning. We will help students to prioritize tasks and assess work for quality and completeness. We will clarify directions and reteach skills as necessary during these small group meetings. Please do your best to ensure that your child attends all four meetings on his or her remote days.
