Weekly Update

Dear Silver Cluster Families,

Superintendent Beutner announced that there will be virtual summer school available to those who are interested.  The registration window opens today, Monday, May 18 at noon (link to application is below).

There are several options:  Self Paced and Options for All

Self-Paced Options begins June 24, 2020.  Activities are done on your own schedule. According to the website, no application is needed.  It is self-serve and available on demand. The schedule will be posted by June 12, 2020.

Activities may include: Interdisciplinary online videos with key partners (including Fender, Illumination, Los Angeles Chargers, Voyage of the Titanic with award-winning director James Cameron, Columbia Memorial Space Center, and more)!  In addition, Read Alouds by notable figures, interviews and classes with field experts, book clubs, and virtual field trips.

Option For All begins June 24, 2020.  Students will meet for 4 days a week (Monday through Thursday) for 50 minutes with direct/live instruction between 8:00 AM- 8:50 or 9:00- 9:50.  All students are eligible, though space may be limited.  PLEASE NOTE: Class start dates may vary due to program or based on local options.

Community-Led Summer Program: These classes will focus on English, Mathematics, and English Language Development with weekly enrichment. Teachers will support students through distance learning.  Eligibility: Open to all students, but priority is for students that need to mitigate learning loss and maintain grade level performance in reading, math, and language. Student eligibility will be determined at a local level.  

Integrated Themed Units of Study: Teachers will provide enrichment instruction aligned to the interdisciplinary activities with key district partners. Topics include Sports Medicine with the Los Angeles Chargers, Environmental Science/STEAM with the Columbia Memorial Science Center, music with Fender, animations with Illumination, Voyage of the Titanic, and Coding & Gaming.

If any of these programs sound interesting, please go to https://achieve.lausd.net/summer2020 for more information on programming and application information. 

In an effort to continue our support for your child’s learning,  we will hold Office Hours over Zoom.  This is a time where your child can ask clarifying questions, discuss the material that was presented, or seek help on a problem.  We are still accessible via Class Dojo messaging (which the kids like to utilize) and of course, via email.  Please see your child’s Zoom schedule for meeting ID and password.

We appreciate all of the continued support!  

In partnership,

Kim and Tina
