MEVA Connector

January 2016

We are working together to create success for MEVA students.

Welcome MEVA staff to the new year! This is the first edition of the MEVA Connector in 2016.

Second semester is right around the corner and we have learned so much since the opening of MEVA in September. Take some time to reflect on successes, no matter how big or how small.

What does your FASL do to support students in second semester?

Currently enrolled students will continue to stay connected to the Family Support Liaison as we move into the second semester. I will continue to make contact with families to ensure that they have a strong start and understand the expectations going into second semester. I will continue to have conversations with the students and their families about the importance of logging into classes daily, checking kmails, completing assignments, and attending Class Connect sessions. This gives them the tools they need to thrive in an online learning enviornment!
