Week of April 27th

Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for your continued patience during this time. Over this last week, I have worked to provide additional organizational resources for both students and parents to help stay organized in our online environment. Several of these have been at the request of parents or based on feedback from parents. Your feedback and questions are important in helping make this process as smooth as possible. This week’s resources are linked below :

+Mr. Bodde’s Weekly Schedule (this includes specific events students can participate in)

+Suggested Weekly Schedule

+Assignment Checklist

+Weekly Overview Video

Throughout the week I am providing feedback to students through their Google Classroom assignments. In this week’s video, I give an example of what this looks like for students. Below you’ll see a screenshot of what students will see on their documents.

I have also received many questions on what grading looks like during this time. The current district position is that students in grades k-8 will not receive a final grade for the 4th marking period. We are documenting student’s completion of the weekly tasks on Sapphire for a record of their work during this period. Today I am updating Sapphire to reflect last week’s assignments. During the week I rely heavily on Google Classroom to communicate and provide feedback with students. Sapphire will serve as the final record of student’s completions. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out.

I pray you and your family are continuing to stay healthy during this difficult time. Have a great week and don’t hesitate to reach out.
