4th Grade with Miss. Navarro
Good morning! I hope everyone was able to enjoy a relaxing weekend with their families. We made it through another week. Everyone did an amazing job, thank you all so much!! Please continue to check the blog twice a day, morning and end of day, since updates can be posted at any time.
I had a very constructive and insightful meeting on Friday with our Superintendent and other 4th grade teachers in our Diocese. We were able to share our resources, concerns, and new processes we will be incorporating into our new way of Online Learning. Please read below regarding school hours per our Diocese:
- School hours are from 8am-12pm, or 9am-1pm (Total 4 hrs). The Superintendent wanted us to reiterate that evenings should be spent together as a family, and all school work should be done during the day. All internet companies are offering free WIFI and even increasing bandwith if anyone is having trouble connecting.
***You know what's best and what works for your family. I don't care what time they do their assignments, I just do not want them spending all day on the computer.
- Teacher hours are from 8am-3pm. It was stressed that we need to unplug at 3pm, and encourage the children and families to do so as well. Please allow 24 hours for a response.
***I have to take frequent breaks from the computer, as I'm still healing from my concussion. Although I may be working outside of the 8am-3pm timeframe, I will not be responding to emails after 3pm until the following day.
Please note, I've been very flexible with accepting work in any format, on time, or late, and will continue to do so. I ask that you would all continue to show the same flexibility and patience when I'm posting assignments, grading work, answering emails, etc. This is a learning process for us all, so if we can all practice some patience and grace, I think it will keep everything going smoothly.
Thank you all again!! Keep up the good work and I appreciate all the kind messages and feedback!! :)
