We start our return to campus program this week for those who have chosen to begin the Hybrid Learning model. The teachers and school staff have been busy preparing and making the campus a safe place for all of us. Other students will remain in the Distance Learning model and will also have to adjust to new class rosters where they may be reunited with classmates from previous years and meet new friends.
In planning for this week the Third Grade team had the goal to minimize change as much as possible, but also realizes we will have to take time to rebuild our classroom communities. Our daily activities should continue as normal with regards to Achieve, iReady and AR reading. However, Math and Language Arts lessons may slow down this week as we allow students to adapt to their new environments.
Attached below is our outline for the week. See you on the other side! 🙂
Welcome back! We will have a modified schedule this week as teachers prepare for hybrid learning that will start on April 12th. Please be sure to check your child’s Teams calendar for class times.
On April 12th, some students will be reorganized into new Distance Learning classes while others will begin to return to the campus in either the Am or Pm class times. Teacher’s will be reaching out to parents by the evening of April 6th with the new class rosters. Thank you for your patience as we all make this transition together.
Parent/ Teacher conferences will continue through Thursday, 3/26. Students will work online with their teachers till about 10:45 then work on independent assignments. Some classroom schedules may vary based upon their current situation. Check your students Teams calendar for their specific class times.
***Friday we will be back to our normal distance learning schedule. Again, please check Teams to confirm your child’s class times. Thank you!
Please note that Parent/ Teacher conferences start this Thursday. If you haven’t signed up for a meeting yet, please contact your child’s teacher asap to arrange a day and time.
School schedule is changing due to conferences. Please check your child’s schedule in Teams for the dates Thursday, March 18th through Thursday, March 25th. Teachers will have two hours of Video Classroom Meetings on conference days, and assign 1 hour and 50 minutes of independent work.
Friday, March 26th will be back to a “normal” online day.
The process for reopening schools can begin once the county moves from the Purple Tier to the Red Tier. We do not have an official start date, but with transmission rates declining across the county we need to begin to finalize our reopening plans at Wolf Canyon. We are in the process of creating our In Person (Hybrid) Rosters, Distance Learning Rosters and teacher assignments. In order to finalize this process, your child’s classroom teacher will be in contact with you in the next couple of weeks to verify your families preference for In Person (Hybrid ) or Distance Learning.
It is important to note that families who select In Person (Hybrid) might not get their preference of AM. Please communicate any extenuating circumstance to your child’s teacher.
Our hybrid schedule, will be 8:45 to 11:30 M-TH or 12:30-3:15 M-TH with all Distance Learning on Friday. If your child is staying in the Distance Learning format, their schedule will remain fairly consistent.
If you would like additional information about Reopening, please read the district handbook for parents found on the home page of CVESD.org.
This week we are celebrating Read Across America. The school will be sharing a link early this week to a website with favorite books read aloud by teachers and staff members. We encourage parents to take a moment to share and reminisce about a favorite childhood book with their children. Perhaps you can find a copy of it on the Epic website and read it with your family.
In celebration of Read Across America, Tuesday will be Pajama Day. 🙂
Our “Astronauts” performance task will continue to be a focus this week. Please check in with your child to make sure they are staying up to date with the writing process and assignments. We are also starting to work on Fractions with the students. There are a lot of real world examples from cooking and baking to recognizing patterns all around us. Check out their homework and feel free to ask them questions and let them share with you what they are learning. They may ask for a chocolate bar so they can show you how it is divided into equal pieces. 😉
