Principal's Message

  • Week of March 30
     
    Good evening Schoeffner Sharks,
    I have really been enjoying seeing our students posting on the unofficial Schoeffner Facebook Group - ESE...Our Adventures Continue at Home.  I am amazed at the unique learning opportunities that our students are participating in with their families.  Be sure to check out the “Spirit Days” that Ms. Young will be posting. 
     
    Your child's teacher will be checking in with you this week by phone.  I know there is a lot of information to choose from to keep your child engaged in some academics during our time away from each other.   Teachers are updating their Google Classrooms and Webpages to help make this task easier for you and your child.  Please be sure to check out the St. Charles Parish Google Site with a sample schedule. It is not too overwhelming for you to follow and still allows plenty of time for our kids to still have some fun. 
     
    Mrs. Pethe, our counselor, has provided some great resources on her webpage to help guide discussions for you and your child during these difficult times.  Your family's social-emotional well-being is very important to us too.
    For our students in 4H, the Record Book deadline has been extended until further notice.  Use this time to work on your Project Books and Portfolio.  Attached to the email version of this message is a link from the Louisiana Ag Center that will give you access to these resources if you left the books at school. (https://www.lsuagcenter.com/topics/kids_teens/projects/4-h-portfolio) There is also information about 4H camp. (https://www.lsuagcenter.com/topics/kids_teens/events/camps)
     
    Stay safe Schoeffner families.  Hope you are able to enjoy your week.

    ESE Families,
    I am excited to be able to share this message with you today.  ESE faculty & staff have been feeling so helpless since the message was given that we needed to stay home from school.  We miss our kiddos greatly and want nothing more than to be teaching and learning with them.  I will be calling every Monday at 6:30 PM until we are reunited in person.
     
    I encourage you to visit your child's teachers' webpages and the school website for links to District curriculum resources.  We are not requiring work to be completed, but strongly encourage you to create a routine for your child that involves some home learning opportunities. 
     
    Some of you may have received a message that our ESE teachers would be driving in the neighborhoods trying to spread some cheer.  It is with a very heavy heart that I had to cancel this event due to the governor's stay home order. 
     
    I have however created a Facebook Group called ESE...Our Adventures Continue at Home for you to share positive messages, pictures, videos of your child learning at home.  Teachers will also be joining!  Maybe someone has visited the Disney website where they learned to draw characters.  I'd love to see our ESE artists.  This group will be managed by me and only ESE families will be allowed to join.  This Group is not an official ESE Facebook page, but a way for us to stay connected at this very difficult time.  I will not be accepting "friend requests" from our students, so parents, please send the request to me.
     
    Until we are together again in person, I hope to see you on Facebook.
