I hope everyone is well and you had a nice weekend. Thank you for the wonderful feedback and suggestions you have been providing. They have been very helpful as we continue to move forward.
A few items of note this week:
The Personal Well-Being class has gotten off to a wonderful start. Today was the first day for the Academy students discussing internet safety and I understand the ICCS students are enjoying this outlet to speak about emotions, their current state, communication and building on their relationships even in tight quarters. I heard from both the students and Miss Konkolics that her Academy senior Teen Awareness groups went well on Friday. Mr. Miller reports that he is enjoying working with the ICCS seniors on year-end preparations.
We have had some wonderful bi-weekly zoom meetings since the beginning of our Distance Learning Program and it’s great to see our families as well as hear how you are doing in your corner of the world. We offered several different times for connection and now that we have normalized, I will continue with a Monday informational email and zoom meetings each Wednesday at 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM (EST). Of course, you are welcome to call, email or schedule a zoom meeting privately.
The world changed overnight as our graduates began the final months of their senior year sacrificing in-person traditions. Because of this, we have created a dedicated page on our website to honor the Class of 2020. It offers a picture slideshow of each graduate and allows you to leave a message for them. Please share with family and friends to show the seniors that we celebrate them from near and far.
Again, thank you for “going the distance” with us during our Distance Learning Program. As we usher in the month of May this week, I reflect upon the words of Robert Tew: “Trust yourself. You’ve survived a lot, and you’ll survive whatever is coming.”
As always, please let me know if there is anything we can do for you and your students.
