Dear Parents and Guardians,

I wanted to begin by reminding everyone there is no school tomorrow, Monday the 18th. Schools are closed due to Martin Luther King’s birthday and remembrance. This week is only a 4 day school week, so it will be a short and fast week. 

Good News! The long awaited Headphones with microphones have arrived and are ready for pick up at school.  You may stop by at any time and pick them up between 8:30 and 3:30.

Here are a few other reminders….

  1. I-Ready importance! I-Ready is a practice and learning tool that has an individualized learning path.Each and every week, your child should be completing at least 45 minutes in both reading and math pathways. In addition, students’ passage score is important! They need to score at least 75% or higher.  Be sure to listen to morning announcements. We will be spotlighting students who are achieving the goals this week!

  1. Attendance! Continue to call the main office if your child will not be attending their teacher’s Google Meet. Even though we are learning remotely, attendance is the same as when we are in school. Please call your child off when they are sick, there’s a family emergency, have a doctor’s appointment, etc. 

  1. Online expectations. Students cameras should be on. Students should be dressed appropriately as in school. Food and drink should be consumed during breaks and lunch. Thank you for following the expectations.

  1. APS Plus After-Hours Support Center - is open. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 4pm-7pm, and Saturdays, 10am-2pm; closed holidays. Review the attached flyer or vist akronschools.com for phone number and Google Meet information.

  1. Chromebooks! Make sure your children are taking good care of their Chromebooks and reading daily from online books that can be found on their APS portal.

 

Keep hanging in there in regards to online learning. I know everyone is tired and frustrated this time of year. As I observe Ritzman staff and students, we are doing EXCELLENT work in remote learning. I am so proud of you, parents, our students and staff. Thank you for being committed and not giving up. In the meantime, if you need anything, please email me with any questions at imcintos@apslearns.org or call Ritzman at 330-761-7903. 

Love Ya Much!
