Well Being and The Elements of Learning

Submitted by angela.killian on Thu, 04/09/2020 - 10:36

What brings me hope in this world is the children.  With children comes laughter, energy, kindness, creativity, unconditional love, a desire to learn. Classes have been dismissed.  Yet we all continue to learn from our homes. Sing, read-aloud, play games in the yard, cook, paint, play cards, visit a virtual museum, dance, write letters, write poems, color, build a fort, make puppets, have a tea party, make lemonade, have a hug 'o war. 

There are so many different views on how to travel 'at-home' learning.  I'm not sure if there is an perfect strategy.  I think the Elements of Learning is an informed approach to maintain our well-being and the well-being of our children http://riverview.nebo.edu/content/learning-pit.  Remember that learning occurs in phases. Use the growth mindset of the learning pit. Implement the learner powers. Remember: "What we do at Riverview is important," "You CAN do hard things," "We are never going to give up on you."

Governor Gary R. Herbert, State Superintendent Syd Dickson, and the Utah State Board of Education “announced that Utah’s K-12 public schools will extend their dismissal [soft closure] through Friday, May 1st.”  Their press release further stated that they will “continue to evaluate the situation to make a determination about the remaining school year” and that:

Gov. Herbert expressed his appreciation to the educators throughout our state who have quickly adapted their instruction to remote learning platforms. 

“These are unprecedented times in Utah’s and our nation’s history,” the governor said, “I have been overwhelmed with Utahns’ outpouring of support for one another, and nowhere has this been more evident than in the way our educators are supporting Utah students and families.”

 Distance learning will continue during the extended dismissal for all K-12 public schools, where feasible…

“We recognize that being away from school creates additional work and stress for everyone in our communities; however, it is a necessary step in stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson. “During the uncertainties of the coming weeks, it is more important than ever to remain socially connected with our students and families while doing our best to ensure learning continues. The flexibility and initiative of our educators is a shining example of how we rise together in challenging circumstances.”

Meal services at K-12 public schools will also continue on an as-needed basis.

Nebo School District teachers and staff remain committed to providing the learning structure and support that students and parents will require during these challenging times.  Our talented and dedicated professionals are so thankful to you students and parents for your tremendous efforts regarding at-home schooling.  Please remain in communication with your child’s teachers and contact the school with questions and concerns.

We are so grateful to live in amazing communities that rally around each other in difficult circumstances and are proud to be your partners in helping your children have academic and social/emotional success.
