Intermediate students should be participating in Zoom lessons and watching teacher videos (the whole thing), especially if they are stuck and need help! Remember that our students are independent learners in the classroom and can definitely be reminded to go use their resources before receiving help from a parent!
Did you know that there is a Fantastic Friday google classroom with assignments from all of your Fantastic Friday teachers? The google classroom code is qerfjsw. To join, just go to classroom.google.com and click the + to join the Intermediate Fantastic Friday class! Now that science fair is over, check out the art, PE, music, and personal safety assignments our Friday teachers are posting!
The Walk-A-Thon is On!
Hey Cheetah’s get ready to exercise and show your school spirit! We’re going to hold a Shelter-In-Place Walk-A-Thon May 13th through May 15th.
Any time from 8 am May 13th through 8 pm May 15th exercise for 30 minutes while social distancing. You can take a walk, dance, Zumba, do jumping jacks, burpees, martial arts, play on the trampoline, swim… whatever you would like to do to stay active for 30 minutes straight. Have fun! Be creative and show your school spirit while you exercise! You may even want to exercise with a friend by video chatting them via Zoom, Facetime, GoogleDuo, etc!
There will be an official Walk-a-Thon post on May 13th on the ACA II Facebook page. Comment on that post with a picture or description of you exercising, or if you are unable to post to Facebook email the description and/or picture to Stephanie Brooks at Fetzy72@gmail.com and she will post it in the comment thread for you. Every family who shares a picture or description receives 1 entry in a raffle for a chance to win a Target electronic gift card.
We understand that some families financial situations have greatly changed due to the current situation, therefore if you or one of your family/friends previously made a donation and now needs a refund, please email Stephanie Brooks at Fetzy72@gmail.com and we will get the money refunded. So that social distancing is practiced, new donations will only be accepted through 99Pledges. Please email Laurie Hawley if you need your 99Pledges link, lhawley@antiochcharteracademy.
Let’s do this Cheetah’s because Cheetah’s Make It Happen!
Completed Young Authors books can be turned in any time between now and Friday May 29th! The due date has been pushed back for students who are behind or were concentrating on their Science Fair. The flexible due date is not a reason to procrastinate! Please encourage your student to finish as soon as possible so that it may be graded.
Once your student’s Young Authors book has been turned in for a grade, they are done with writing class assignments for the year! Remember that completed books can be dropped off, mailed in, or submitted electronically. Be sure to watch the youtube video for parents for all of the directions and options for book binding.
Once your student has presented their science fair project to Mrs. Gonzalez and turned in their science fair binder to their teacher, then they are finished with research for the year. There will be no trimester 3 research project this year.
