Weekly Cougar Update
March 8, 2021
Happy Monday, Caleb families!
As I’m sure you’ve been following, Sac City Unified is continuing efforts to reopen for in-person instruction after spring break. For more information on this, please visit the district’s resource pages at www.reopeningdashboard.scusd.edu and www.learn.scusd.edu.
Please complete the Distance Learning Preference Form for each of your children by March 17 so we can begin planning for concurrent and distance learning based on your family’s needs. Your child’s student ID number is required. You can find this number on any progress note or report card or through Infinite Campus. Click here for information on how to access Infinite Campus. Once there, select “Today” from the dropdown menu in the upper left corner for your child’s profile. The Student ID Number will be to the right of their picture, just under their name.
I know there are still a lot of unknowns, but please trust that the Caleb staff and I are working hard to prepare our site and ourselves for the return of students in person and will keep you updated with any new information as it becomes available. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we navigate important milestones toward reopening for your children.
Tune in to our Digital Winter Concert premiere on Wednesday night March 10th at 7:00 PM for 20 minutes of delightful entertainment by and for the Caleb Greenwood Community. We can’t wait to see and share the concert with all of you!
Last week, we introduced this month’s IB Learner Profile focus attribute Caring and action focus Social Justice. I want to encourage you all to continue to seek ways to show empathy, compassion and respect for others and to take action for social justice – the belief that everyone deserves to enjoy the same economic, political, and social rights, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, gender, or other characteristics. One way to start is by learning to recognize when social justice is not happening. When and where do you see people or groups not enjoying the same opportunities or being treated differently? Training yourself to see injustices and thinking about how you can show empathy and compassion in those situations is one small way you can begin taking action for social justice.
Be sure to take a look at this week’s Cougar Video Message and IB PYP Newsletter on our website, and take a minute to order your yearbook while you’re there.
We’ve got this, Cougars! Let’s have a great week!
