We are in Quarter 4 and rounding into Spring Break! We hope each of you takes time to rest, connect, and enjoy. Brain breaks are so vital! We also want to encourage you to take some time to disconnect from technology, rest your eyes, and go explore outside the virtual world.
Last month, we had the honor of attending the California Charter Schools Association Annual Conference. We feel validated that our program is on the cutting edge of teaching and learning and serving our families, and we picked up some new tips and tricks, as well. Some of our team is traveling to partner with Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center in Colorado this month. This ongoing learning and collaboration with our partners allows us to continue to grow, be inspired, and serve you!
This is the time of the year where we look at the final push for success and growth in online courses. We want each learner to end on a high note and feel that they met their personal achievement goals this school year. Families can help support by using PowerSchool to check learner progress, encouraging positive study habits at home, and encouraging their learners to reach out to their academic coach, course facilitator, or live chat tutor for help and support.
Simultaneously, we are also eagerly planning our fall programming. We are excited to be launching our 3rd grade offerings, Advanced Placement Courses, and Career and Technical Education courses and pathways. Stay tuned for more information about each of these exciting things!
