On Thursday, our entire Middle School community transitioned to online learning through Canvas and the Big Blue Button. One of the many strengths of the middle school program is the level of engagement and the focus on the growth of the whole child, and this type of learning continued this week despite being at a distance.
In our classes, teachers spent time helping students acclimate to the new system of learning, as well as taking time to talk about the transition and offer ideas about how we can continue to make the most of this unique situation. Students shared excitement about this new platform, and continued to view this as an opportunity to develop new skills! With nearly 98% attendance on day one, the Middle School launch was a great success!
In the afternoon, teachers offered “office hours” to meet with any students who need additional support. Following office hours, the middle school staff spent time collaborating about how we can continue to provide the best education possible to all of our students!
Stay tuned for more updates on all of the great things happening in the Middle School, even if from a distance!
