Our Lady of Good Counsel School works tremendously hard to communicate to our community as quickly and as thoroughly as possible. The Coronavirus pandemic situation was no exception. Several meetings and instructions occurred with staff and teachers to make sure all were prepared and that parents were informed of the upcoming procedures.
eLearning for each student, grade, class, and teacher looks different at OLGC.
- Google Hangouts
- Zoom meetings
- Classroom Dojo
- emails, and phone calls to communicate and instruct their students.
Each week Principal Mrs. Jewett gives a Family Time Challenge, Asst. Principal Mrs. Williams gives Prayer Challenges, Counselor Mrs. O gives Social-Emotional Challenges, and occasional messages & videos from Nurse Bliven.
The Specials Subjects (Art, PE, Music, Science Lab, Library, and Spanish) post weekly assignments. On Fridays throughout May, we will be using the professional development time allotted by the Superintendent to allow classroom teachers to spend time recording their lessons and preparing for Zoom classes they will have the following week. Therefore, we will be calling those Fridays "Special Fridays", and we will ask that the homeroom teachers not send any new work so that the students (and families) may have some time to catch up on any assignments not finished earlier in the week.
Throughout this time, the priests have visited online classrooms or sent videos to the families.
Many of our happenings have been posted on our social media sites.
