A Message from Mrs. Froning
I am hoping admits these uncertain times, you prioritizing your needs and the needs of your family. Just like all of you, the Froning's are adjusting to new daily routines too. We welcomed the youngest home from Grand Valley State University as her freshman year will be completed online. My husband (who is an assistant principal at Walled Lake Northern) and I have created our home-office spaces that are often shared with our dog and/or few cats! We are taking time for more walks and enjoying the gift of more time together as a family. I hope that might be the silver lining for all...a slow pace and more family time!
Over the past week, our AMAZING staff has been working to create engaging Google classrooms which include a variety of ways for you and your students feel connected as a classroom community through special messages, pictures, and videos. We are focusing on activities that are easy to engage in as best fits your families needs/schedules. We are NOT introducing new curriculum through the online classroom and students will not be assessed. We do hope student will engage in activities each day (especially reading and math) as a way to keep skills "fresh", maintaining some sense of school during this closure. Our second Trimester did concluded on Friday, March 13th. Report cards will post in Family Access after 4:00 pm on Wednesday, March 25th. Thank you for taking time to review the report card alongside your student, celebrating their successes and setting goals for future growth!
I have spent the past week supporting our teachers and families with Google classroom, iReady and other challenges with online learning. Thank you for your patience and persistence! I am SO excited to see the number of students who have joined their Google classrooms and are actively commenting on various things! The pictures being posted are priceless!
As of yesterday (Friday) afternoon, 97% of our students have officially joined their "homeroom" classrooms! WAY TO GO!!! We would LOVE for all students to join the Fine Arts classrooms as well! Ms. Vining, Mrs. Todd, Mrs. Shafer, Mrs. Grinnell and Mr. Ozuch would love to see their students and each are offering fun and engaging ways to attend "specials" which are a BIG part of your students weekly schedule when at school.
I miss seeing our students SO much! I will be posting in their Google classrooms, beginning Monday, March 23rd as a way to connect with our school community. In the coming weeks, ensuring ALL needs of our school community are begin met is a priority for me. PLEASE reach to me either email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 248-535-2290 if I can help in any way. Take care of one another and I can't wait to back together at Oakley Park!
