Happy Tuesday Scholars,

 

Today's classes: Math and PE classes. All assignments for these classes will be due today at 11:59 pm. Your teachers will be available today between 8 AM and 4 PM via email. 

IMPORTANT DATES!

April 9 - Passover - No School

April 10 - Good Friday - No School

YOUR SOCIAL EMOTIONAL CORNER

Do you ever forget to take care of yourself?

 

I know. You’re busy, and finding the time to take proper care of yourself can be hard. But if you don’t, it won’t be long before you’re battered from exhaustion and operating in a mental fog where it’s hard to care about anything or anyone.

Self-care isn’t something you do once and check off the list. It’s the constant repetition of many tiny habits, which together soothe you and make sure you’re at your optimum—emotionally, physically, and mentally.

The best way to do this is to implement tiny self-care habits every day. To regularly include in your life a little bit of love and attention for your own body, mind, and soul.

Today's idea is a tiny self-care activity you can fit into a short amount of time, usually with little cost.

Make one small change to your diet for the week. Drink an extra glass of water each day, or have an extra portion of veggies each meal.

Please continue to share pictures of you working on your lessons at home, so that we can share them with the rest of the community. 

 

 

Stay safe and well. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Happy Monday and Goodmorning, Scholars!

Welcome to Week 3 of Distance Learning. I hope everyone is doing well and being safe.

Today we start the week off with English and Law classes. All assignments for these classes will be due today at 11:59 pm. I encourage you to reach out to your teachers if you have questions regarding the assignments. Your teachers will be available today between 8 am and 4 pm via email. 

 

IMPORTANT DATES!

April 9 - Passover - No School

April 10 - Good Friday - No School

On March 27, 2020, Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.11, extending the school closure to April 15, 2020. In that Executive Order, the Governor made clear that he expects schools to use all scheduled vacation days to continue distance learning. As a result, schools throughout the area and the state have had to send out similar, if unpopular, messages to this effect: Spring Break is canceled.

We must acknowledge and respect the religious holidays on April 9 (Passover) and April 10 (Good Friday). Therefore we will be closed April 9 and April 10. We will resume the regular schedule for distance learning on April 13. 

We will keep you updated if anything changes with our return date of April 20. 

We miss you all and are eager to see our hallways bustling with activity as soon as possible. 

Be well and continue to practice social distancing. 
Stay safe and well. Have a wonderful Monday!

We've made it to the end of the first full week of distance learning. There are no classes today. If you haven't submitted your assignments for classes this week, be in communication with your teachers and do so by the end of the day today. 

 

Today is the last day of Quarter 3. Make sure you've communicated and submitted any assignments that you didn't submit. We move into a new quarter on Monday, March 30th. 

 

Distance Learning is a new experience for all of us, and we are making this transition together. It's very important that you are in communication and use the tools that are available to you to be successful while in distance learning. 

 

As we move into week 2 of distance learning we will have the teachers incorporate live sessions and/or office hours where you can participate in a Zoom call with your teacher. This will give more opportunities to ask questions and hear from your peers. So look forward to seeing a new schedule that will incorporate time to do your work and times to attend office hours with your teachers. 

 

In the meantime, enjoy the weekend, wash your hands, and remember social distancing.
