An email went out (on Saturday morning) to all students working towards a June gateway. (Their parents also received the email.) This email contained the student’s assigned gateway day/time. If you have not yet seen that email, please look for it! We will be using email heavily this week to communicate with gatewayers about lots of details – if you are working towards a June gateway, PLEASE check your email at least once a day and be sure take the steps the emails outline for you.
Last Week of Classes, Last Class, and (Upcoming) Last Day of School
This is the last week of “regular” Home Learning classes. Unless a student has a summer work contract, Friday will be the last day to submit (non-gateway) work to teachers. We want to encourage students to do one last big “push” to finish the year well and submit any in-process work that is within reach of completion! Additionally,
On Friday, many (though not all) classes will run a “last class” day – we want to encourage students to make a special effort to attend these live class sessions as a way to bring closure to their collective academic experiences this year. See below for a “last day” live class schedule.
Starting next week, school is still in session, but we will be in “Gateway Days” mode, where students will attend gateways as the core part of their learning experience. We will also be putting out new “self-directed learning” ideas and inspiration for those school days. The last day of school will be Thursday, June 18. We will have a “Home Learning” version of our traditional Big End, and all students will be asked to join their advisory one final time to close out the year.
Here is this week’s Parker Fun list – purely social opportunities to talk, play games, and connect with peers/teachers. This week’s sessions are listed here (or click on the thumbnail to the right). The LINKS can be found in an email sent just to students on Monday morning.
Here is the list of LIVE CLASS sessions this week. Click here (or on the thumbnail to the right) to see the full calendar of this week’s live classes. See note above about a special “last class” meeting that many (but not all) classes will have on Friday – special Friday schedule here. Meeting links and further directions are in your class instructions/OneNote. Note that this list does NOT include advisory, which all students also have one or more times a week!
