To all Students and Parents, April 1, 2020
By now, you have begun virtual learning at home through Google Classrooms. To say that this is unusual is an understatement. It is certainly different from going to classes each day and doing homework at night. What are some of the obstacles you are facing? Some students report that motivating themselves to do work at home is difficult, and others say that they do not always understand what is expected of them in a given assignment. This may be true. Perhaps some of our recent graduates now in college can relate to this. In college, much of the work is completed independently on your own time. As students mature, they are better able to handle independent work. Often, college students must advocate for themselves and clarify instructions to assignments.
I hope that this new and strange experience, while challenging on many levels, can somehow serve a positive purpose in preparing our students for the challenges ahead in their academic careers.
Keep these points in mind:
- Make a schedule to do your work and stick to it.
- Ask for clarification from your teachers in regards to assignments.
- Expect to be frustrated on some days, and even depressed on others. Reach out to us if those feelings occur often.
Email me or your counselor with any and all concerns, or just to report how you are doing. We would love to hear from you.
