The last Sirius Talk Show will be held tomorrow at 1pm. We will be announcing the final week’s activities. The Talk Show Topics form is on the Team Classroom site, too. Over 50 kids came to the first Talk Show, we are hoping to have even more tomorrow. Please try to be there!
Finally, after the final assignments are completed, the teacher comments are written, and the computers are logged off, we can all enjoy a sigh of relief. We can look back and know that we have gone through a remarkable change these past couple months. The families and teachers can feel proud that we’ve accomplished something we never could have imagined. We know that we have learned new things about ourselves-personally, professionally, and otherwise. It seems like each day was a learning opportunity for everyone involved in this endeavor. The teachers are already in discussions about how we will be adjusting and growing in the traditional classroom and in the online classroom, should we be returning to this format. Moving forward, none of us know what the future will hold, but what we do know is that we now have new knowledge and experience on which to grow. Just like we’ll be doing, we encourage all families to reflect upon this time; use this experience to prepare for future learning. Should we return to the online classroom next year, we want these students to be ready to learn, ready to advocate, and ready to handle anything seventh grade throws their way.
This group has grown so much over the school year. It’s been a sheer joy leading the students of Team Sirius throughout our many adventures. They are a resilient bunch and we couldn’t be prouder of them!
