Important Information about Remote Instruction
We have made it through one week of online learning! The first week many we realized how important creating a good schedule and setting a routine would be important for distance learning. In that schedule it is important to give ourselves breaks. If we know we have certain things to complete before we get the rest of the day free we have a better chance of completing the daily tasks. I also suggest listing it in the order you think you should complete it -- start with the hardest or the least favorite and work to what you would find the easiest or most fun. Below is a sample schedule:
- Wake up (Sleep in longer than normal school day, but remember what time your zoom sessions start and set the time based off of them).
- Eat breakfast.
- Look at google classroom pages and make one checklist of all assignments that you have to complete today (sample for Tuesday) and a weekly checklist too.
- complete about 1 1/2 hour of school work
- BREAK --> outside time/free time
- 1 1/2 hours of work (or until done)
- BREAK --> computer games/ outside/ free time
- games/free time
**Make sure you fill zoom meetings in as needed throughout the daily routine as well.
School Lunch Program:
Each day students will have several choices. There is always a hot item, as well as usually pasta bar, potato bar, and an entree salad. Check the lunch menus sent home at the beginning of each month. Payments can be made by check to OLVCS, sent in and applied to your child's account. Or, you can go to this web address to electronically deposit money through an online account: www.myschoolbucks.com. You will need your child's student ID number. Please choose "Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown" when setting up your account.
Please use my page to find homework for each class by clicking on the correct class at the left side of the page. And, as always, feel free to contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
