General Email Update – Wednesday, March 18
Hello Parents and Students. While we are transitioning everyone to Google Classroom the Upper School Teachers are going to try to send all of their announcements in one email at about this time of day. When we are all on board with Google Classroom this should not be necessary any longer, but for now we thought it would be helpful for many.
All Upper School Announcements
All teachers are being flexible and understanding regarding due dates in this challenging time. Please know that we want to support you, not stress you out. Let us know if we need to extend grace in any place. We are praying for all of you!
- Reminder to students that you need to be sure to click the “Turn In” button on Google Classroom or your assignment WILL NOT BE SUBMITTED.
- Students, in Google Classroom please make sure that you are signed up for all of your classes. For instance, Prentis Dialectic Humanities and Sasser Dialectic Humanities currently have a different number of students. That means that some of your are enrolled in one, but not the other. Please check that you can see ALL of your classes.
Please email any teacher with whom you would like to conference in order to setup a time to talk on the phone.
The parents’ classroom is probably not working for many of you as you do not have WCA email accounts. We are working to figure out how to get you the tech support you need with Google Classroom in another way. The best way to do this for now is to just email Mrs. Zuccola if you have an issue.
Do you have students who are wondering how to use their time? Remind them that they could always begin to look through their materials and plan for Practicum, our big Spring day celebrating learning.
Students, remember that your goal in school is to learn, to glorify God, and to have your affections directed towards that which is Good, True, and Beautiful. Your goal is not to get good grades. Now, with all of our learning having moved online, it is much more incumbent upon you to make sure that you are being academically and intellectually honest in all of your work. Be asking yourself the question: “If I got this much help from my friend/parent/sibling/the internet when we were at school would it be acceptable?” If the answer is “no” then it is probably not honest to have that much help at home either.
Art Elective: Mrs. Ziegler
If you would like to pick up paintings and materials so you can work on them at home, I will be at school tomorrow from 9am to 12pm. I will try to be available virtually to help you in any way I can.
