Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,
As we prepare to "come back together" this week, I have posted a short survey on Google Classroom to determine the students' accessibility, needs and interests as we move into this online learning environment. Please have your child log onto Classroom to take the survey at their earliest convenience.
Welcome back. All of you are in my thoughts during this historic time. So good to have you here! We will do our best to move forward. This will be a period we will remember for the rest of our lives. I understand this is a difficult time for you. Keep in mind we are not alone and we are navigating the best we can. I will do my best to guide you with your Art instruction from home. How you work on this will need to be at a pace that you can manage at home. To start here is a great produced by a student of one of my Art colleagues in Buffalo. A must see:
Although all work will be through Google Classroom. A Google Classroom has been established for up to date instruction with specific courses and provides fundamental coverage of expectations and responsibilities for assignments. A date of Tuesday, April 7 is posted on most immediate assignments.They will be assessed and be included in 3rd quarter grades. Some future assignments have a due date of TBD (to be determined), based on what happens in the next few weeks. We are trying to maintain a schedule. Continuing to work on these assignments. Parents and Guardians: I can invite you to the Google Classroom to monitor your child’s progress if you wish. For quick reference, you may also access the scheduled assignments on the Assignments page of my Teacher website.
Please email me with any questions. My direct contact time will be from 10am -1pm Monday through Friday. Send images of progress frequently so I may provide important feedback. Judging from the anticipated amount of emails, it may take a day or two to respond. I will also be sending supporting videos and potentially setting up Google Meets for further assistance.
Remember, keep moving forward. Work each day. Balance online and offline time: review, sketch, think, write, journal, connect with other students from your class, and do the best you can. I will see you soon! Stay healthy!
Remember, through the Arts, we can document, think, feel, express, communicate, console, and most importantly, heal.
All the best,
