Happy Friday Blochman Families,
I Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. Teachers have had success reaching out to most of our families and we are assessing our needs going forward for devices and internet service. I will be meeting with our teachers Monday directing them to do some test runs with Google Classroom and Zoom. Be ready for some practice runs starting next week. Hopefully we will have everyone on board with our new delivery of curriculum and we can hit the ground running on April 6th. Remember we do have office hours from 9am to 1pm Monday through Thursday. If you have any questions please give us a call. Enjoy your weekend Bobcats!
As our teachers reach out to you we are compiling a list to make computers available to those of you who are still in need. Computers will be available for pickup this coming Monday and Tuesday from 9am to 1pm. ….. just come on out. We are also going back to office hours starting next week. We will be open Monday – Thursday from 9 am to 1pm with very limited staff. We will continue to keep you informed as quickly as possible. Thank you for working together to support our students and your children. I have had several students share with me some of the cool things they are doing at home. Anything from learning the parts of a car engine to learning how to bake an apple pie. This is a great time to find those little extras to do with your children. Mine personal kids are learning the trade of professional house cleaning.
Thank you and have a great evening.
Good Evening Bobcats,
I wanted to let everyone know that I met with our staff today (teleconference) to talk about online curriculum. We will be using Google Classroom as well as Zoom meetings. We are hoping to start online instruction April 6th. I have directed all teachers to reach out to their families to see if you have internet access and a device. Please look for those phone calls starting tomorrow and Thursday. For those of you that don’t have a device or internet or both we will be reaching out to see if we can assist you in obtaining what you need. Some of you are in areas where this might not be possible and we will have paper packets as well for curriculum. This process will be new to everyone so please be patient as we put our plan into action. Teachers will also be able to assist you with accessing curriculum and how to assist your children. This will especially be a learning curve for our younger students. Together I am confident we can make this work and be successful for whatever time needed. We are committed to do our best and need to work together and support each other, more than ever, for the benefit of our students and your children.
I hope everyone is doing well. Starting tomorrow our office hours will be 8am to 1pm Monday thru Friday. Believe it or not I already miss your kids….well most of them, but on a serious note curriculum is ready to pick up. Thank you to our entire staff for working together to make this happen so quickly. Phone calls were made today to ask preference of the most convenient pick up point. If we were unable to get ahold of you your pick up point will be Blochman. For those of you that chose Trivium 1550 S. College you must pick the packets up this Thursday from 9am to 3:30 and if you chose Family Partnership 1157 E. Clark packets are available this Wednesday and Thursday only from 10am to 1:30pm. If you do not pick them up during that time your packets will go back to Blochman for pickup. Please remember to email teachers with any questions you might have. That is it for now I will be sending out a new one call tomorrow.
Thank you and be safe!
