As the situation around #COVID19 progresses, we know that students are likely anxious and scared about what they’re hearing. This Brainpop video is a great kid-friendly resource, shared by P2 Partner School Masonic Heights Elementary, that can help your children understand the importance of being informed, washing hands, and following CDC and local guidelines regarding coronavirus – and how our own actions can help protect others.
Hello Cary Elementary Families,
The teachers and I continue to miss you all
very much. Online meetings through Zoom and Google Meet have become
our new regular way of meeting as a staff an in teams as we continue to plan
and share ideas for how we can share more resources for you at home, connect
with students, and prepare for our move to required remote learning on April 13.
While this current way of life is certainly not what we would choose, I’ll admit it
has caused many of us to quickly learn some new skills, which can also be a good
thing. As many of you know, I have two of my own children at home and they have
also had to adjust as their learning is changing.
We’ve even had a little fun giving
them some “real world” tasks for learning and this can be something you can do with your children at home too. Our dog Ellie recently found her way into my backpack, pulled out my wallet, and….at my 20 dollar bill! (Lucky for her she is so cute) It’s in pieces but this week one of my daughters took on this real world project and is writing a letter to the US Treasury as her research showed that this could be an option for replacement. Even if not there has been some good real world learning there – and I learned to zip up my backpack
My other daughter has been working on some videography skills as she will be helping my wife, who is a teacher, film and edit some of her lessons. Adding on screen text is a great way to practice some writing. Lastly, one of of CES students shared with me a great write-up of his findings in an at home experiment he did with
ice and salt.
Next week will bring some more details of how a daily schedule for teaching and learning may look when we start our new phase on April 13. Please complete the online technology survey we recently sent out and look for an email from me at the early part of the week with some more information and details as we continue to keep you informed. Thanks for all participation in our One School One Book reading program as we’ve had a lot of fun with the book Almost Super – I think we are super!
Our school has participated in a special, community-wide shared reading event. Last week, every family received a copy of the same book – Almost Super by Marion Jensen – and the goal is that all of our families complete reading it by March 31, see schedule.
Please make the time for your family to participate in this special activity. Each day Mrs. Cavaco will be updating this new website with discussion questions, trivia, and activity ideas while we are all reading along at home.
We hope this provides a fun way for families to stay in touch during this time. Mrs. Cavaco would like for families to send her videos, messages or tweets of your family reading or doing some of the activities. You will find posts here: https://sites.google.com/wcpss.net/cesoneschoolonebook/home. Check out funny pics families have shared for laughs or inspiration.
You may also post to a link from the Cary Elementary homepage. If you are tweeting be sure to tag @CavacoMedia101, @cary_elementary and use the #cesoneschoolonebook You can also email Mrs. Cavaco at: firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures, videos, etc.
We hope to see lots more families participate during this final week!
Our “Americans We,” a patriotic celebration featuring the Cary Elementary School Choir & Third Grade is just around the corner (if we’re all back at school!). The tribute will be held on Monday, May 4th.
During the program we will be honoring Veterans and Active Military. We are putting together a slideshow for the event. If you have photos of a family member who has served or is currently serving (in uniform or plain clothes) – please share it with us! Send a digital copy to: email@example.com by Friday, April 3, 2020.
We are so excited to share this evening of fun and inspirational music with all of you! Thank you!
