Dear Parents,

Please mark your agendas. On the evening of Thursday May 14, we will be hosting an interactive Town-hall style “Thought Exchange” exploring the theme of moving forward as a school in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Further details will be comin to you prior to the event.

Clearly on many of our minds, as parents and educators alike, is when and under what conditions we will return to on-campus learning. This is part of the purpose for the thought exchange. A fundamentally important part of our collective planning for next year, as a Board, administration, faculty, support services and families, is having as much data as possible. If you have not done so already, PLEASE take a few minutes to complete our re-enrollment questionnaire. The information you provide, including your own questions and uncertainties is invaluable for us to work with you as parents for the benefit of your sons and daughters.  

The challenges of navigating COVID-19 and all its implications is going to be for the foreseeable future. But there is still a lot to celebrate as members of this community. An excellent way to do this is to help celebrate our virtual International Festival. We are so grateful for the video and recipe submissions we received and the final product will be shared shortly with our community. Stay tuned to see how your contributions to this beloved event will add some sunshine to our memories during these difficult days. And once again PLEASE fill in the re-enrollment questionnaire.

Sincerely,

Robert van der Eyken
Director

Dear Families,

We have spoken before about possibilities that arise and how we embrace these. This week, I want to speak about strengthening our school-home relationships and express gratitude for the way in which you are participating in the co-construction of our collective understanding regarding how children learn and what we value in education.

We are extremely excited to engage in conversations during the upcoming parent-teacher conferences with families in this unique opportunity on May 14 and May 15. This conversation will focus on sharing with the primary purpose of celebrating and speaking about next steps. While teachers engage with children through the online connections, parents are accompanying their children and observing their learning first hand throughout the day.
 
So, we invite you to place close attention to how your child interacts with learning, how they learn best, the role that play has in their lives, what they enjoy, the effort that they put into challenging situations, how your relationship contributes to their sense of resilience... enjoy observing and take note of what you see. We know that children benefit from focusing on positivism and strengthening their confidence and boosting their self-esteem will always be a priority. As we think about their distance learning experience, we will together, harness this as a moment of celebration and project our true belief in their potential, in their intelligence and in the endless possibilities that are coming their way. Below are a set of suggested guiding questions for your reflection and observations/conversations with your children that we ask that you consider prior to conferences.

Guiding questions for you to engage with your child:

  • What have you discovered as the best parts of distance learning? 
  • What have you learned how to do during this time at home?
  • What would you be excited to learn about next?
  • What/Who has helped you as a learner during this time of learning from home?

Guiding questions for parent reflections (jot down your reflections to bring to conferences):

  • What positive discoveries have you made about your child as a learner that perhaps you did not know before?
  • What positive discoveries have you made about your child’s way of playing and learning through play that you did not know before?
  • How has your child responded to this way of learning- working online; working with parent as a partner/coach; coping with #stayathome reality?
  • How is your child contributing to your family’s experience?
  • What opportunities exist in your family structure/dynamics for your child to express emotions and build resilience?

Parent Opportunities Coming Up:

  • Wednesday, May 6 at 3:30 p.m. - Link to RSVP

Thank you to those of you who were able to join the Parent Workshop last Thursday, it was delightful to connect and see parents. If you were unable to join us, you may view the slides here

Counselor’s Corner - Aubrey Jordan
At the parent workshop last week, I shared some health & wellness tips for parents during this time, that are helpful not just for students but for adults as well. One important point that has come up in teacher observations and students surveys is about sleep & routine. A couple of measures can be taken to assist our students in maintaining energy and focus during the day through a healthy and relatively normal sleep schedule. Here are a few examples of this:

  • Allowing enough time to wake up prior to first class.
  • Finding a location such as a desk or table in a common living area to participate in class. 
  • Exercising or moving the body for at least 30 minutes a day.
  • Promoting a scheduled bedtime in which electronics/devices are turned off or stored in a location outside of the bedroom.

For a full list of those tips please refer to slides 7-8 on this slideshow, or for any other question, please email me at ajordan@cotopaxi.k12.ec.

Dear High School Parents and Students,

Thank you for your continued effort and commitment to our distance learning programme. Here is our HS newsletter for this week. Be safe!

Conversation with the HS Admin team - May 7 at 1:00 p.m.
As we are running into May, I would like to invite you to a Conversation with the High School Admin team on Thursday, May 7 at 1:00 p.m.

We will address some programme updates, take a moment to share the status of the Class of 2020 events, celebrate our student-driven initiatives and listen to our counselors. We will also answer your questions that I am kindly asking you to send me before the event, by May 6, so that we can categorise them.

Mr. Brian Voeller, Associate Principal and IB Diploma Coordinator, Ms. Delaney Keyes Voeller, High School Counselor, Mr. Lysha Wasser, College Counselor, Mr. Juan José Fuentes, Athletic Director, and Ms. Leigh Murrell, Instructional Coach, will all join me to run this session and answer your questions.

We shall have this conversation in my “meeting room”, here: https://cedia.zoom.us/j/9238512101

We all look forward to seeing you on May 7 at 1:00 p.m.

Plans for June
In the light of the current circonstances, and after many meetings and conversations in our different teams, we have decided to not hold the Semester 2 exams in June this year. Our new reality with distance learning raises the question of the validity and the meaningfulness of such exams. In lieu of traditional exams, each department will hold final summative tasks that will allow all students to demonstrate their growth and mastery of content and skills. 

We have also decided to maintain the Capstone presentations. Those are typically the culmination of the reflections on students’ ATL and CAS goals from the beginning of the year. While this is still going to represent some aspects of this year’s Capstone presentations, we shall ask students to reflect on their own experience with distance learning and what they have learned about themselves as learners.

Those decisions will impact our scheduling of the last weeks in June since we will not have an exam week as such but we will calendar the Capstone presentations with mentors and parents will be invited to those.

Change to our Seniors Events
As you might know by now, the Class of 2020 events, including the senior breakfast, farewell, roll call and graduation, are going to be postponed to a later date. This is tough for them, their families and all of us really. But we will host a special Seniors Awards and GoodBye Ceremony on May 29 at 1:30 p.m.

NHS Tutoring
Our fantastic National Honor Society, lead by Ms. Gallé, are launching a peer to peer tutoring
AC Highschool, the NHS has been working hard to figure out how we can best serve you during this time of remote learning. We've put together a tutoring list of some of our most capable students so you can get the help you'll need while we're all at home. The tutors' names and subjects can be found in the first tab of the document, and the schedules are available on the second tab. Please don't hesitate to set up a meeting with them for anything academically related, be it help on math, history, or even tips on organization/homework skills!

Meet with Teachers - Schedule Appointments
We will continue to encourage students to set up appointments with teachers. Please do not hesitate to reach out to meet with our teachers.

CAS at Home
Mr. Shulman and Ms. Faidutti have created a google classroom to share ideas of cool CAS experiences that can be done at home. The CAS code is cmtf4ra. Those ideas will contribute to maintaining a healthy and balanced life.

Reminder of Netiquette
It is crucial that, together, we maintain strong and positive ways to interact and to present ourselves online. Please support us so that students respect the following netiquette.

College Counseling News - April 24
 
Mr. Lysha's Big Idea
In my opinion, and it is just my opinion, even though most universities are not saying this yet, I believe that universities will be starting online for the fall semester. How do you feel about this? How will this affect the choice you will make? These are the questions that need to be answered honestly. Different people will make different decisions, but it is most important you listen to your own voice to know the way forward.
 
United States Deposit Day Deadline - May 1
If you are a 12th grader intending to attend university in the United States, it is most likely that you must deposit by May 1 in order to reserve your spot, even if you plan on deferring for a year. Do not miss this deadline!
 
Canadian College Virtual Fair
May 14, Thursday, 12:00 pm to 2:00 p.m. Register here and you must register by April 27. Canadian universities present include Bishop's, Brock, Lakehead, Memorial, Mount Allison, St. Thomas, University of Victoria, and York. Canada continues to be a wonderful option for university studies, paid internships, and a path to eventual Canadian citizenship. Don't miss out!

Dear Families,
 
We want to thank parents for responding to our survey and providing comments that help us understand how we are meeting your needs. Many parents commented positively regarding the addition of daily community meetings, small group live sessions, addition of specials (Art, Music and PE) and opportunities to meet with teachers. There were also comments regarding schedules and challenges related to these, as well as, some parents providing feedback regarding the number of activities that children have to complete.
 
During the parent webinars, we address several of the questions that have come up in the surveys this week. We encourage all parents to view the recorded webinars that were sent to your emails as these were designed with your feedback in mind. In addition, you can contact your child’s teacher if you have questions that are specific about your child’s learning or attitudes. All teachers have times during the week when they are open for parent and/or student meetings.

Dear Parents,

COVID-19 has necessarily altered our lives as we follow the local authorities’ safety measures. At the same time our teachers have responded admirably to enable students to finish this school year with anticipated progress.

Assuming permission to recommence on-campus learning in August, we now face important questions as to how and with what new rules and practices. We understand there will continue to be COVID-19 related challenges. Your completing the re-enrollment questionnaire will assist us in anticipating and managing these. 

Schools are designed to bring children and teachers together to share in the excitement of learning. Unfortunately, social distancing is completely the contrary to how schools are traditionally designed. For this reason, in places reopening their daily routines, such as China, school campuses are often the last to reopen.  

Most of our school population is young and COVID-19 poses close to zero threat to them. However, the virus is a real danger to other, older people, especially those with underlying health problems. Some of these people at higher risk include faculty and staff of our school. Most children will not get very ill, but they can pass the illness to teachers, parents, and grandparents. Moving forward, we will need to consider ways to minimize contact with more vulnerable members of our community. We are being forced into opportunities to rethink how we do things. For example, we may need to protect more vulnerable members of society by allowing them to continue working remotely.  

We will need to know as much as possible about the health status of our community. There may be government mandates as well as institutional policies for our mutual safety such as testing students and staff for COVID-19 before returning to campus and testing throughout the year. We may need to adjust our schedules and classes, prepare for occasional disruptions or campus closures. Some students may need to learn from home, some teachers may continue teaching from home, while other students are on campus.

The above scenarios illustrate the need to rethink how we will operate. Other changes may include prohibition of large gatherings, limitations on campus visits and field trips and/or international travel, as well as the use of facemasks and deep cleaning of the campus. The way we have all adjusted to distance learning is testimony to our resilience. We must be prepared to further adapt and rise to each occasion, teach and learn differently, assume different roles and help each other. Together we will make it happen.

COVID-19 is a paradigm, not a problem. Problems have “solutions”. A problem would be students in a particular grade generally not performing as expected on division questions of the NWEA mathematics assessment. This can be resolved by greater focus on division. Overall the NWEA results improve. “Problem” resolved. But there will always be students who struggle in math, parents who are concerned about math and teachers trying new strategies. That is the paradigm with no simple solutions. It cannot be “solved”, it must be managed. If learning mathematics was a problem we would have found the “solution” long ago. Let’s not confuse problems with paradigms. 

We are in the midst of paradigm shift. There will always be discussion about math, curriculum, homework, students not getting along with other students, satisfaction or lack of satisfaction with individual teachers, assignments, grades, etc. That is the traditional school paradigm. The new paradigm is how to navigate the labyrinth of COVID-19. You will soon be invited to join a “Thought Exchange”, an interactive online platform to gather thoughts and ideas, collectively identify questions and hopefully generate ideas to manage, not necessarily solve, this new paradigm.  

COVID-19 will remain a fact of life in every school at every level. Forms of restriction will continue for some time. We will make use of every measure to manage this paradigm, always focused both on safety and your children’s education. An essential action we can take right now is to cooperate, share ideas, be empathetic and patient. On behalf of the Board, administration, faculty, staff, and most importantly, your sons and daughters, I look forward to exchanging thoughts on how we move forward. In the meantime please remember to help celebrate our virtual International Festival (record your video and/or send a recipe to Damiana Proaño, dproano@cotopaxi.k12.ec) and fill out the re-enrollment questionnaire.

Thank you, have a wonderful week and a Happy May Day this Friday. May Day is an ancient celebration of spring, the return of life after months of winter darkness. There will be renewal and time to celebrate after this current crisis. Let’s always hold out that hope for our children.

Sincerely,

Robert van der Eyken

Dear AC and IMAGINE Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU for your never ending support as we have carried out these past weeks of distance learning. This manifests itself differently at each age level. Middle and High School students are fairly independent. They need guidance and encouragement. This is different with younger children. Without your time to further explain, take pictures and videos, as well as email back and forth with your child’s teacher(s), we would never have been able to do this.

We understand that the challenges that each family is facing during this time (scheduling, WIFI connection, etc.) are very different from one another. We have sent out various surveys for your feedback. This is important in helping us help you. This is a team effort. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s distance learning experience, I encourage you to communicate those directly with your child’s teacher(s) so they can address them immediately. Please note that we continue to follow our school calendar including the statutory holidays of May 1 and May 25.

This situation has required us to interface more with technology than we could have ever imagined. And yet there really is a disconnect between the devices we depend upon and our understanding of it. Here is a great "TED TALK" about curiosity and may provide some ideas of some off-track inquiries in the home. 

This moment is providing opportunities for your children to explore and experiment in new ways. Last week I was a “patient” for some 8th grade students who explained a rare hereditary condition in my family. The science lesson was as creative and interesting as anything I have ever observed in a classroom. The students who consulted with me really knew their stuff, and taught me things about genetics I never knew. When I visit the elementary Seesaw portfolios I see gems of learning that you as parents would never have seen if your children were at home. Years from now you will have these records to look back upon to not only remember your family persevered through these days, but to celebrate magic moments of an age that your children will quickly grow beyond. 

As the speaker in the above "TED TALK" mentioned, there are many opportunities to experiment at home. Here is video of a brother and sister team from Academia Cotopaxi experimenting with eggs and physics in their own backyard during these days of quarantine. Not only are their experiments interesting, but look at the quality of the video they produced! Honestly, I first thought it was something coming from a formal educational organization, not our students. Children learn through play, learning and creativity is not restricted to a computer screen but with a computer it can be captured and cherished.

Have a great week.

Sincerely,

Robert van der Eyken
