Peek of the Week May 15 - May 23
Dear East Falmouth Families,
Happy Friday! Creating connectedness for our students and teachers continues to be of utmost importance. The purchase of our Chromebooks that will be delivered for our K-2 students by drive up pick up at the high school, is on hold as we do not yet have a delivery date. Stay tuned as there has been a monumental demand for them to provide access and equity to students across the country. By now you should have received the latest Continuity of Learning plans for your child. If you have not received it please notify us. Our teachers are working hard to connect with their students and have been doing more Screencastify and Pre-recorded lessons so that students can continue to hear from their teacher while at the same time connecting with them on Zoom. Our teachers continue to learn what the possibilities as we move forward in this remote world.
Our grading this report card period will be ME (Meeting Expectations) and NME (Not Meeting Expectations). As long as your child has been engaged with his or her teacher and has been working on the continuity of learning plans they are meeting our expectations during this unprecedented time. Remember that Fridays have been set aside as a day to work on the Specialists remote plans.
We are awaiting the Governor's direction on Monday May 18 as for the next steps in our current restrictions. We will not have families returning to the school for any left-over personal belongings from cubbies or desks until we learn more. We have a plan and will announce it when we are permitted to leave our homes.
Sunshine this weekend! Keep finding ways to enjoy the outdoors safely.
East Falmouth Reading Challenge: We will be collecting the March & April minutes via a separate Blackboard Connect email. We will announce the winning grade levels in an upcoming Peek of the Week! We have attached the May Reading Challenge Sheet for you to log your minutes (see below)! Happy Reading!
FYI: The Falmouth Service Center is offering curb side food pick up on Tuesday's, Thursday's and Friday's from 10:00-12:00. No need to get out of your car, they will bring it to you!
