    Live Homework Help Sessions

    #PCMSFamily,

     
    I am happy to announce that we are now going to offer live Homework Help sessions via zoom.  Here are details for the program:
     
    1.  Students must sign-up for sessions they want through their vikingmail email accounts via sign-up genius.  They will then be emailed the zoom link for the session they signed up for.  Each sign-up is not recurring and must be done for each day and slot requested.  We are offering live help sessions Monday through Friday.  PCMS's building teacher substitutes will facilitate live help sessions. Any gray, scarlet, or remote student can sign up for sessions.
     
    2.  The time for the live help sessions are 1:45-3:15 pm.  They are broken down into subjects and then grade level. You must sign-up for each time slot individually and daily.
     
    1:45-2:15 Math 
    2:15-2:45 Language Arts
    2:45-3:15 Science/Social Studies/Encore
     
    3.  This is a first come first serve basis for spots as we want to make sure our building substitutes can provide the best attention to students in time slots so we have to limit the amount for each slot.  We are beginning the live sessions Wednesday, November 4th. (today)

    Students and Staff set example for the School Age Children Channel

    Joining Forces for Children is a collective of educators, health care professionals, community members, and more who work to prevent and reverse the effects of child traumas such as adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Their goal is to brighten the future for children, their families, and our communities.

     

    As part of their “School Age Children Channel”, Kevin Jamison (Human Resources), Curtis Spencer (Sharonville), and Lissette Mason (Princeton Community Middle School) presented about Princeton’s summer school English Learner (EL) program of 2020. The majority of the students at Sharonville, involved with the summer school program,  lived in the same apartment complex, so they had class outside on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays throughout June and July. The Mobile Book Center would come on Mondays equipped with WiFi and would provide books for the students. Princeton’s food truck would come on Mondays and Wednesdays to pass out food and books for the families. For those not living at that apartment complex, Curtis Spencer would do house visits. At PCMS, Lissette Mason and the ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) teachers helped the ELs with technology.  They emphasized the importance of logging on to the computer and completing work while solving problems that came along. Kevin Jamison collaborated with Catholic Charities and the National Your Advocate Program (NYAP)  to provide healthcare givers to address trauma that can be experienced by students who are new to the US and other issues that might come out of the pandemic. 

     

    Through the summer school program, Princeton teachers, students, and parents, along with Catholic Charities and NYAP, were able to work together to not only provide academics but counseling also. This helped ensure trust and understanding among Princeton's students and parents.

    Second Quarter Attendance

    Dear Princeton Families,

     

    Welcome to the Second Quarter! The first quarter of this school year was quite unique and we thank our students, staff, and parents/guardians for your flexibility.  The second quarter may bring new challenges, but working together we can continue to live our mission of empowering each student for college, career, and life success.  

     

    We will be implementing the following attendance updates in an effort to increase student academic achievement and participation.

     

    Attendance for FULL REMOTE Students:

    • Students must participate in live sessions (synchronous learning) for English (Reading), Math, Science, Social Studies and elective classes
    • Teachers will take attendance during live sessions
    • Parents and/or students must contact teachers with a reason if they cannot attend live sessions
    • If the recording is viewed in lieu of the live session, a teacher assignment must be completed 
    • Failure to participate in live sessions will result in up to two absences for the week if the teacher receives no communication from the parent or student
    • Independent work (asynchronous learning) must also be submitted to reach full attendance for the week

     

    Attendance for Scarlet/Gray AT HOME Learning weeks:

    • Student must complete work daily as assigned by teacher
    • Teacher will grade work and provide feedback to students’ weekly
    • Secondary teachers will submit at least two assignments in the grade book weekly
    • Live learning sessions will be offered at all levels during the afternoon and students with technology are required to attend.

     

    Students who fail to meet academic expectations will be required to attend our summer school program.  Students who fail to meet attendance requirements may have truancy charges filed.  It is critical that parents communicate with their child’s teacher(s) and the school so that we can provide interventions to help with remote and at-home learning.

     

    Please contact your child’s building principal, counselor, or teacher with questions regarding student performance during the first quarter and the support that is available.

    PCMS Picture Day Information
     

    Zooms/Google Meets in Google Classroom, parents and their participation

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Each year pictures and videos of students are often taken for use in district publications, press releases, school/district websites and/or as an instructional resource during remote learning activities (i.e. zoom or google meets live sessions).  If a parent, guardian, or student does not want to be photographed or videotaped for these purposes, please contact the building or grade level principals.  We will be happy to clarify any questions you may have and/or accommodate your request to not have your child photographed or videotaped.

    Also, we encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s remote learning experience and hope that you regularly connect with teachers so that your child has a well-rounded education.  We do ask that parents refrain from participating in live sessions.  The sessions are meant for the students and parent/teacher contact should occur outside of live instructional time.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of this request.

    Lastly, taking attendance for remote learning is new for us this year.  There are expectations set by the state that require schools to take attendance even for those students learning at home.  Students who fail to engage in learning at home will be referred to administration for chronic absenteeism which we would like to prevent if at all possible.  We ask that if your child is not able to participate in remote learning that you notify the school so that we can mark attendance accordingly.  We will be using the same procedure that is utilized in our traditional setting.  Please contact the school if you have questions regarding attendance.  

    Sincerely,

    Tonya West Wright

    Supporting Young Minds of All Kinds.
    We all know that this upcoming school year is going to be different than any other, and that families have to adjust to big changes, such as how best to support learning from home. One of the Library’s areas of focus in our Strategic Plan is student success. We’re committed to helping young people have the resources and supports they need to succeed in school and prepare for post-secondary education, training, careers, and life. Besides library cards and access to our eResources 24/7, we can also support students with their remote learning by providing WiFi access, computers/laptops, and access to library staff to provide assistance. Here’s some important information:
     
    In-person
    Kids learning remotely, and their families, are welcome to visit any of our 41 locations during all open hours, Mon. – Sat., 10am to 6pm. 
    • At the downtown Main Library we have designated a space on the second floor for homework help for middle and high schoolers, which will be available beginning Aug. 24. We can accommodate up to 24 students at a time. 
      • To reserve a space students should call 513.369.6900. 
      • Sessions are 2 hours in length and are limited to 1 session per student per day.
      • There will be 3 sessions each weekday: Monday – Friday
        • 10AM – 12PM
        • 1PM – 3PM
        • 4PM – 6PM.
    • We do still have safety protocols in place, including requiring face coverings, reduced occupancy levels, and limits on the length a customer can stay. 
    • Right now, we are working to improve our outdoor spaces and meeting rooms at many of our locations so we can support students who need homework help, access to WiFi or devices, or assistance with their own device. 
    • We intend to use the first few weeks of school to learn what the demand is for student use of our facilities and as capacity allows, and we may try additional strategies like adding student-only hours in the evenings, and adjusting occupancy levels, if the spread of COVID-19 continues to improve in our county. 
     
    Online
    Homework HelpNow
    • Anyone with a library card can use our Homework HelpNow resource, which provides a variety of supports to students, including live homework assistance, study tools, virtual study rooms and even free assistance with filling out the financial aid form for college (FAFSA). 
    • Check out this brief video to learn more about this great resource.
