Colt Family Communicator
Welcome to the William Wells Brown monthly newsletter!
Thanks to everyone for a 'job well done' this week! It will definitely take everyone to make Distance Learning a success! Thank you for being patient with us as we are all experiencing Distance Learning for the first time! We appreciate everyones support through this process. Welcome back to our 'new normal'!
Meet our Staff!
Each week, we will feature some of our staff members so you can get to know us!
FCPS is doing a NEW THING! Non-Traditional Instruction, also known as NTI, was never meant to be a long-term solution to teaching and learning. NTI was meant for short-term relief, for example if there are extended snow days, or other short-term days off due to weather or other circumstances. Distance Learning is SCHOOL! Your students will be receiving their current grade level instruction, as we are accelerating learning, to make sure we get EVERY scholar on grade level!
Each grade level has a schedule, that incorporates independent and 'Live' learning. Last week, most students were "Live" more than normal. This allowed the teachers to introduce them to the new way of learning, and get them used to the schedule. Next week, teachers will get students used to their regular schedule. We want to get students used to the schedule so they will become independent, confident learners!
Virtual Meeting Norms!
Please review the Virtual Learning Norms with your scholar. We want every scholar to be successful during Distance Learning! A reminder that all students should be in dress code daily! Each day, we want every student to be ready for learning!
