Welcome to 6th grade Science!!
All grades on home access are up to date for Science as of last night for the last 7 weeks of virtual learning. There are still grades to be entered for this week and the following, but that won't be right away. If your child has a 50% for anything , that is because the assignment was not completed. If your child does the assignment now and turns it in I will still give them credit for the assignment. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. If you need your log in information for Home Access please contact Ms. Zachos in the main office. joanna.zachos@PCA.K12.de.us
Also Friday we will not have a live Zoom class for Science I will use 11:30 -12:15 as a question time for any student who needs help or has questions about any assignments. Friday should be used as a day to catch up on all missing work for any class due to the fact that grades are due on June 1st at 8am so we wil be unable to take assignments after May 30 to grade.
Have a fabulous rest of your day!!
It is time to think about the special track for next school year.
Attached is the information for specials next year.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, Dean of Students
Happy Earth Day to everyone, this year is the 50th anniversary of earth day. I encourage all the students to go outside for a few minutes and just enjoy some fresh air. Take a walk, play with your siblings or pet, play a game of tag, anything outside is perfect just enjoy what is out there and what we are so lucky to have. Remember we only have one earth and we need to take care of it. Miss you all so very much!
Here is the schoology link students need to use to go to the site https://pcasaints.schoology.com/
Also I have included some helpful videos to help students with schoology if needed!!!
Next week March 23 to 27th when we have our virtual day of learning I wanted to share that I will have office hours for everyone to reach out to me if they have any issues. I will be available from 9:30-10:10am by email, or zoom for virtual meetings as well as again from 4:30-5:30pm.
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 772 704 118
The meeting time for this is 9:30-10:10 you are able to join whenever during that time if you need something or just want to say hi. This is not required but is just to give you some availability to me if needed :)
Thank you all again for being patient and for understanding during this difficult time. I miss you all and hope everyone is taking a few minutes to get outside in the fresh air as well as doing some fun reading. Keep those brains working!
THIS WAS ALSO ON CLASSTAG:
We are working hard as a school to navigate these next two weeks together. We are preparing to complete one day's worth of work virtually. This will be one day's worth of work and will be given to you this Friday, March 20th to be completed at any time over the following week (between March 23rd and March 27th).
The 6th grade team needs to know the students that have access to technology at home and the students that need a paper copy. If you do not respond to this e-mail requesting work otherwise, we will assume that your student DOES have access to internet and a device to access their work. If your student does not have consistent access, please respond with the following by tomorrow, March 17th no later than 3:30 p.m.:
1. Do you have access to a printer and need the work e-mailed to you so you can print and have your student complete the work to hand in when we return?
2. Do you need a printed copy of the work delivered to you for your student to complete and hand in when we return?
Please let us know how we can best accommodate your student to get their work done. More information and specifics about student work will be coming to you no later than Friday, but we can do our best to answer any questions you may have in the meantime. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
Thank you all for your patience, cooperation, and support as we work through this together!

Please see below from Denise Stouffer, our Head of School. It would be great if you could join her conference call tonight at 7:00 p.m. for a school update and an opportunity to ask questions.
I am thinking of all of you, hope all is well and that you know if you need anything just let me know!
Dear PCA Community,
At 7:00pm tonight, I will conduct a conference call for parents who wish to hear about the changes we are making to our school calendar, which I will then post.
To call into the conference call, dial 515-604-9856. You will be prompted to enter an access code. The access code is 494023. Please mute your phone after joining the call.
During this call, I will share how we are going to make up missed instructional days. I will also allow time to answer any questions you may have, about the make-up days. I am asking, that if you have questions about any other matters that you email me directly at email@example.com.
I know that this call time may not work for all our families. I would be happy to set up a time for a second conference call, if necessary. Please email me if you are unable to join this call tonight, and require a second call.
We are expecting the results of the COVID-19 test that was conducted on one of our parents on Monday and will share that information with you as soon as we have it.
Please know that our team has been working diligently over the weekend to compile essential information you need.

Providence Creek Academy Leadership was notified this morning that someone secondarily connected with PCA is in the process of being tested and treated for COVID-19. While this case has not been confirmed, we believe it will be later today. In an abundance of caution, we are closing school today until we are able to speak with the Division of Public Health which opens at 8:30. I apologize for the short notice. The health and safety of our children and faculty is our first priority. I will send out more information today as soon as I speak with DPH.
