Google Classroom 101 Follow Up

Dear Families, 

Thank you again to everyone who attended our family workshop Google Classroom 101 on Thursday, Sept. 29th at 6pm. The workshop was a great success due to our amazing Google Admin Logan for his amazing presentation. 

During the meet families shared some concerns they had regarding the following topics.

~ Digital Feedback 

~ Google Calendar 

After the workshop I was able to share your concerns with the Admin team. Our Assistant Principals Kerry (K-5th) and Ben (6th-8th) will speak to the teachers in their Grade Team meetings to discuss ways teachers can provide feedback to families for major assignments. Teachers will also have a PD on the use of Google Classroom tools such as Google Calendar to provide consistency for families to manage Assignments, Google Meets and Events. 

We truly appreciate all the feedback we receive. The only way we can grow  and improve is to keep our partnership with families strong. If there are any families who was unable to attend the workshop, the recording will be posted to our ps333.org website. However, below is the Powerpoint presentation for you to view at anytime.

District 3 Cafe: Chat with

Superintendent Loughlin

D3 Cafe: Chat with Superintendent Loughlin

Meeting ID: 840 5900 4655 

Passcode: 252658

Reminder: Attendance Protocols

Students who opt/opted in for blended learning are expected to attend school IN PERSON on the days their cohorts are scheduled to be in the building. Any student not present is marked absent (A).

Students who are ill should stay home until they are better. Students are marked absent (it is a sick day) and they DO NOT join in the remote group. 

Remote classes are not open classes where anyone can join. They have limited number of students, and the teachers are responsible for the students enrolled in that class. Hybrid students are not supposed to join in a remote class.

If students have been exposed to COVID or have COVID or have COVID symptoms and have to quarantine they are able to attend school remotely for the 14 days of quarantine and/or have tested negative for COVID.

If a family member is sick (random sickness) students are expected to attend school, as they would in non-COVID time.  Only if they have been exposed to a family member who has COVID and the student has to quarantine, then they would join remotely.

Attendance is taken as follows:

Students who are in attendance in person and engage remotely by 3pm are marked "present" (P) for in person and (O) for engaged. In-person students are expected to attend in person.  If they do not show up on their cohort day they will be marked absent (A)

Remote students are expected to participate online.  If they do not engage at all by11am their teacher marks them absent (M), if they engage before 3pm we change the (M) to an (O).

In the DOE:

The definition of “present” is as follows:

In Person: Student is physically present in the classroom / school learning environment for instruction during the scheduled school day.

Remote: Student is virtually present in a virtual learning environment for synchronous instruction during the scheduled school day.

Students who have selected in-person learning are expected to be physically present in the classroom and will be marked absent if they do not attend in person.  They may not opt for remote learning.

Calling All Middle School Artists

Dear 6th, 7th, and 8th graders,

Our community values progressive education through the arts, and no one knows it like you. That’s why we’re inviting every middle school artist to send us visual art that expresses how you, your classmates, and MSC families are creating community through COVID.

Whether a sketch, a painting, a sculpture, or something else, we’ll feature your submission in our Giving Tuesday communications because you are the heartbeat of MSC.

Please send a scan or a photo of your masterpiece to FamilyGiving@friendsofmsc.org, and we’ll let you know when yours is slated for the spotlight.
