April 17, 2020

Good afternoon all-

I hope you are all safe and healthy! We have now wrapped up our second full week of our Remote Learning Plan. Our numbers show that most students are engaged in learning. Our teachers have been working hard to reach out to students they have not heard from. If you feel unsure of what teachers are doing to reach your students I encourage you to reach out and ask! As a district we are still working on what grading looks like in this semester of Credit/No Credit. iParent and iStudent are still open and many teachers (but not all) are using it. Teachers are giving students feedback and assessing their progress but we are really not focused on grades during this time.

AHS Loves the Class of 2020! We are in the process of purchasing lawn signs for the entire class. Thanks to all of you who have donated to the senior sign project. This information was shared with the parents/guardians of the Class of 2020 but I wanted to share the donation link here as well.

Planning for graduation....I hate writing those words and not linking the standard document we typically share at this time of the year. Sadly, this year is clearly different. We don't know what graduation will look like yet but we will be seeking feedback from seniors and their families once we have a clear picture of what will be happening after May 4. The students have been sharing a lot of ideas during class meetings. Please be assured that no decision has been made at this time.

Mr. McGann hosted a webinar with some of the most popular colleges our AHS students attend. Check it out here: Navigating the College Search Process.

Have a wonderful weekend!
