MISD eNewsletter: April 10, 2020

Dear Muenster ISD students and families,


We are reaching the end of our first week of Distance Learning. We appreciate all of your support from home for your children in this new form of education. Our staff is remotely supporting students and families while buildings are closed. Be sure to make use of our student help resources, meal program, and other offerings during our facilities closure. Links are available at www.muensterisd.net/distancelearning.


Just a few reminders for the coming weeks:


  • At this time, school is closed-instructing known as "Distance Learning" through Sunday, May 3rd, 2020.



  • Beginning Monday, April 13, 2020, students in grades 7th - 12th will begin receiving lessons from their elective courses.


  • Report Cards for the 5th Six Weeks have been mailed to families.



Thank you for your continued support and encouragement of our teachers, staff, and administrators. We miss you and look forward to all being together again! Together, we will continue to educate our Muenster ISD students, because KIDS COME FIRST.


Sincerely,


Steven Self,

Muenster ISD Superintendent

Hornet Yearbook and the COVID-19 Pandemic

This is a moment none have experienced. With the pace of near hourly change, comes a sense of uncertainty and with that, anxiety. What we want to bring into the discussion is the reality of the historical moment we are watching live. We encourage you to start photographing these moments and collecting your conversations.


Our 2020 yearbook will be unique to say the least! Let’s create an annual that reaches to the highest Muenster Hornet Traditions and something to look back on how we as a Hornet family excelled and prospered during this historic time.

We are planning a COVID-19 Divider in our 2020 Yearbook. Here are some activities we would like to include from you:


COVID-19 News and Reflection:


  • Images of what students did during school closure:

  • Popular activities

  • Most popular board games

  • Images of family time

  • Stories of how you stayed connected to fellow students and staff

  • Images of homeschooling

  • How your school conducted tests

  • How many students pulled out old photos, childhood games, etc.

  • How many kilometers you walked to stay active?

  • Your dog/cat’s reaction to all the new attention?

  • How your community came together to help one another during the crisis (“Acts of Kindness” provided groceries to elderly neighbor, baked, created FaceTime games, regular telephone calls to grandparents)



Please send you photos along with a short description of what is going on and who is in each photo as an email attachment to:

rick.harris@muensterisd.org
