Wallace Elementary School
Quarterly Newsletter, Marking Period 4
Celebrating the 2019-2020 School Year
In a matter of weeks, the our school, and district, adjusted and adapted how education is provided. Staff developed and delivered online curriculum. Students demonstrated flexibility as they tackled the art of online school and showed up for class in their living rooms. Parents and families took on an even greater role as academic coaches. The administration reallocated resources to ensure that students had the devices and technology they needed to be successful.
Throughout all of these actions, it is evident that our Wallace community embodies unity, works hard, leads with love, and is incredibly resilient. The changes may have challenged us, but together we were able to learn, grow, and celebrate all that makes us Wallace.
Our students learned valuable skills that will that will stay with them throughout their lives. Skills such as perseverance, problem solving, how to join and rejoin a Zoom meeting, the importance of listening to one another during an online discussion, and how to structure learning time at home. As a community we have learned that our school is not just the walls that make up the school building, our community consists of the people and the relationships we have formed. Together we have celebrated our community through Wildcat weekly challenges, virtual field day, and virtual end of the year events and promotion ceremonies.
There are days of uncertainty ahead, yet we no one thing for sure — We are Wallace and any changes or challenges we face us will only make us stronger.
