This year has been a challenging year for all of us with the return to school, work and activities while also using virtual tools. The JME School Improvement Council (SIC) played a big part in helping students, teachers and families navigate the virtual world. Here’s what we’ve accomplished over the past couple of years:
Parent Virtual Learning Survey & List of Online Resources:
Surveyed parents to learn what online resources they used for virtual learning.
Created a comprehensive list of online learning resources for all JME families – organized by grade level, subject, type of resource and cost.
Shared extracurricular STEM, critical thinking skills and physical education activities
Virtual Escape Rooms:
Created a “Virtual Escape Room” for Math and Language Arts to replace traditional in person nights.
Used student testing data (MAP testing) and met with JME teachers and interventionists to develop Virtual Escape Rooms content.
There were three leveled versions of the Virtual Escape Rooms (Kindergarten-1st, 2nd- 3rd grade, and 4th- 5th grade).
Virtual Escape Rooms were a huge hit across all grade levels and will remain on our JME website.
