Update from our Head of School - May 1, 2020

Happy Friday and Happy May!  Hopefully we are done with the yucky April weather and all those April showers (rain AND snow) will bring May Flowers.  A tulip bloomed in our yard yesterday so that was a hopeful sign of Spring being here to stay.  I hope that you and your family have been able to get outside and see more and more signs of Spring this week.  

This week, we wrapped up our amphibian unit.  Students are sharing their own amphibian which they created from their imagination using the knowledge they learned about amphibians in their class meetings, this week and the beginning of next week.  This project definitely seemed to be a favorite among our students and I loved hearing all the knowledge they had to share during our All-School Meeting on Wednesday!  I hope many of you took the time to watch the Baltimore Woods amphibian migration video I sent in an earlier email this week.  If not, I believe it will be available until tomorrow.

School Closure:

As of this afternoon, Governor Cuomo announced another extension of the school closure which mandates that schools are closed for the rest of the school year.  Our school will follow this extension of his executive order and will continue to provide distance learning through the end of the school year.  We will be sending out further information as we develop plans for what the end of the school year and the beginning of next year will look like.  In the meantime, our distance learning procedure will continue much the way it has been with a few improvements to how work can be submitted on google classroom which were implemented in this current project.  We will be sending out another survey to check in about how things are going.  Please respond to the survey when you receive it so we can improve what we are doing.

Thank you for your continued support in these unprecedented times!  We are so grateful to our families and community for working with us to make sure all our kids are continuing to learn and being flexible with what that looks like.

Thank you,

Sara and the Truxton Academy Team
