Weekly Update - Owl #6
Update Owl #5
Update Owl #4
Our last full week of remote only...hopefully!
If all goes well and as expected, this will be our last week of fully remote learning for a while (hopefully). Please tune in to tonight's school committee meeting to hear Dr. Maruszczak's decision about a definitive start for hybrid learning and the district's plan to keep students and staff safe. Here is a LINK to the 7:00 PM meeting.
The HYBRID Schedule
The MURSD Reentry Survey -
The district was awarded a grant so that we can offer STMath to our students. I really despise most online math programs that market themselves as helping kids to acquire and practice new skills. Most, in my opinion, are little more than digital worksheets that induce an amazing amount of frustration and distaste for mathematics in our students. In my opinion, STMath is different. It truly helps students to develop a conceptual understanding of the math concepts taught at any given grade level. There are no directions. Children have to learn by noticing what is on the screen and taking risks. Sometimes (even for us) the only way to understand a new puzzle is to fail a few times. Making mistakes is definitely part of the learning process here.
