Greetings Stonebridge World School Families,
I hope this finds your family staying healthy and safe. Beginning March 17 Stonebridge staff began developing what distance learning will look like and began creating lessons for students. As you are aware this is very large task. State standards and learning goals remain, but learning will look and feel very different beginning on April 6.
Teachers will be starting their distance learning plan with each class on Monday April 6. Stonebridge will be using Google Classroom for teaching and learning as well as online tools from our current reading and math curriculum which students know. All Stonebridge students have a google account and password. Many of you have already talked with your teacher on how to have your students log in. Teachers will be available to help others as needed.
Teachers have a class schedule that will be posted and each day teachers will post the day’s learning intentions and related activities.
The learning activities may entail teacher instruction, videos, reading, online or at home activities. The goal is have students log in for the morning message at 9:00 AM each day and at the latest by noon to be considered present. Middle school students must log in to advisory each morning and with each of their subject teachers each day. Completion of daily learning activities are critical to student success within the distance learning program.
Students and parents will most definitely have questions. Teacher will be available to talk with students and families via email, Bloomz and by phone. Here are some things to consider:
We will be excited to see everyone on Monday April 6th as we start a new adventure in learning together. Watch for the Stonebridge school bus on Monday morning starting at 10:00, which will be delivering food and classroom materials. Don’t forget to use the MyStop App to track the bus.
Stay well and safe – we are all in this together.
