Valle Verde Elementary Distance Learning Update

October is full of excitement and plenty of activities. It’s also a great time to check in with our school community to ask, “How are you doing?” “What do you need from the school to support your child at home?” More than ever, you are probably thinking about your current reality and you’re probably trying to organize various schedules while working from home simultaneously. Although parenting is a personal journey, and every household distance learning set up may look differently, we could all use a little bit of assistance. Help is on the way as our teachers prepare for parent conferences. Teachers have connected with parents to give updates on what their classes are doing. In the upcoming weeks, October 19th -30th, you will receive an invite for parent conferences. As teachers plan conferences, class schedules will mostly remain the same, with slight adjustments to accommodate our parent schedules. You will be notified if there are changes to the daily interactive schedule. Students should receive the normal instructional minutes for the day. There are many benefits to scheduling the conferences in October, including communicating learning plans early, tracking progress and working closely with parents to ensure that we are on the same page as we support our students. Make sure to jot down any questions that you may have, as well. We understand that distance learning is not easy and we are here, ready to plan for positive outcomes!

We will continue with our Community Meetings next week. It is important to note that our goal is to support our students’ academically, socially and emotionally. Community meetings have been scheduled to highlight and discuss SEL (Social Emotional Learning) and other school topics. The office hours are designed to have unstructured conversations with parents. You are encouraged to attend. The next Community meeting will be held on Friday, October 16, 2020 at 9:30am-10:30am. The next date for Office Hours is October 23, 2020, 8:30-9:30am. The zoom links for the meetings are included at the bottom of the newsletter.

Our next School Site Council meeting is on October 15th at 3:00pm. The SSC will review the SSC by-laws, Vote for SSC officers and update our Single Plan for Student Achievement. We will discuss the school goals and have the opportunity to unpack how we are doing with our goals. This will inform next steps on the SPSA plan (Single Plan for Student Achievement). Parents are encouraged to attend the SSC meeting. Your voice matters.

MDUSD Library Website is up and running and our librarian, Diana Zimmer is working to open the library for check out system but it is not ready yet. Stay tuned for more details.
