I want to thank our students for continuing to participate in their Canvas classes on a daily basis. Attendance rates are good so far, please keep it up! Good attendance is the strongest predictor of academic success in any school year, but this year more than any other.
Just a reminder that Monday, Oct. 12th is Indigenous People’s Day. This is a day to celebrate and honor the rich history and culture of Native American Peoples. It is important for us to remember that our community is built on land that rightfully belonged to various tribes, including the Shasta, Takelma, and the Cow Creek Umpqua. A great link to learn more about local tribes is here.
We all miss seeing our students on campus, but it is great nonetheless to see your faces in Zoom. So just a reminder to our students to please turn on your Zoom video during class-time whenever possible! Your teachers and classmates want to get to know you. When students have their Zoom videos turned on it improves the level of participation and engagement in the class and makes for a better experience for everyone. If you have a good reason for having your video off, please share that privately with your teacher.
Thanks to all of you for making our first three weeks of distance learning a success! We aim to build on that and continue to improve. Have a great weekend!
