Virtual     Learning

Welcome to summer school virtual learning!!

Parents,

My name is Ms. Sahr and I will be your scholar's teacher for summer school 2020.  For the next three weeks, I am here to help your scholar refresh and practice the skills to help prepare them for the upcoming school year. 

Here are a few requirements scholars will need to follow in order to be successful in this virtual summer school classroom:

 

Attendance:

Attendance for each scholar will be recorded daily.  During our daily mandatory Zoom meeting at 9:00am, I will take attendance.  Showing up for this Zoom meeting will count as one full day of attendance.  Should your scholar not show up for the Zoom meeting, they will be marked absent.  Students are not allowed to miss more than 2 Zoom meetings for the duration of the summer school program or they will not be eligible for the free Chromebooks given by University Academy.

 

What is Zoom?:

Zoom is a web-based Video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video.  

Here is the link and password for all Zoom meetings ( link and password will be the same every day):

Meeting ID: 785 918 5041
Type in this password: ss2020  

 

Assignments and Instruction:

We will be using a variety of websites to listen to instruction and complete assignments.  One thing I love about educational websites is that I can give quick feedback to scholars. To the right in green is a list of the various websites we will use a quick description.

 

Summer School Themes:

University Academy decided to base each week of summer school off a theme.  In addition to our normal math and ELA subjects, we will be doing fun activities and learning with a theme of the week.  Our goal is that scholars walk away with something they didn't know before on a topic they don't often get a chance to learn about.  Here are the themes for the following weeks:

Week 1: Philippines

Week 2: Surfs Up

Week 3: Summer Olympic Sport: Surfing

 

Daily Schedule (I will be on Zoom 8am-12pm):

8:00-9:00 am                  Ms. Sahr's Office Hours

I know this can seem overwhelming right now but please know that I am right there with you.  Do not hesitate to contact me if you feel confused or need help.  I may not have all the answers but I will do my best to find them for you.  Stay safe and take care of yourself and your family.  This too shall pass.

As always, you are much appreciated!

-Ms. Sahr

 

Schoology

www.usacademy.schoology.com

This is our new virtual platform that will be utilized throughout the school year.  This is a "one stop shop" so scholars will be able to access the other websites within Schoology (that way there is no need to open multiple tabs).  Parents will be able to see what their child is working on as well as what has or has not been completed and turned in.
