Student Grades & the Daily Plan in the OLS
Over the past few days, several families have asked about their child’s grades within the grade book. At this time, we are continuing to adjust settings within the grade book as well as adjust the expected progress – or the overall number of lessons – that students will complete within each course for the school year. We anticipate having this all adjusted by Friday, August 28th. For now, please be aware that grades may not accurately reflect your child’s current grade.
Additionally, we are continuing to adjust the daily plan for students in the OLS to align to assignments on the Bison On-Track calendar. This should all be completed by the end of the day today, August 21st. We appreciate your patience as both of these are items that cannot be completed until the first day of school and we work on them behind the scenes after classes and communications with families. If you continue to see a discrepancy beginning Monday, August 31st, please contact your homeroom teacher and we will look at this on a student by student basis.
Please don’t worry about grades during the first few days of school. These days are spent learning routines and getting to know students as you build a foundation for the year. Teachers will alert you to when everything is ready and you can start monitoring grade books. For now, just remember daily logging in and using the Bison On-Track Calendar is the priority.
- Characters (good and evil)
- Setting (where and when)
- Events (beginning, middle, and end)
Now students are starting to write narrative pieces. On Sept 1, 4th graders will be completing the Big Idea by writing a modern-day Cinderella tale. This Big Idea is also the Teacher Graded Assignment (see above).
Continue Multiplication Practice
Spend 20 minutes each school day working on multiplication facts this school year.
Media Release Form
OVCA is focused on providing a safe virtual learning environment. With this in mind, we ask that a legal guardian complete the below survey for each student enrolled with OVCA. The media release form includes two sections: Photograph, Testimonial and Interview Release, and Face to Face Platform (webcam) Usage School-Guardian-Student Compact. You will be given the choice to accept or decline each opportunity.
Together we can help students reach their full potential through personalized learning this year! Thank you for taking the time to complete this form.
