Greetings Stowe Middle School Families,
Last Friday, I shared (via our Family Updates) adjustments to Wednesday, November 18th’s schedule. We are providing more live instructional opportunities, more responsiveness to students’ needs, and more of a fixed schedule. Tomorrow, we are starting our remote Wednesday at 8:45 AM with a schoolwide community meeting featuring special guest, Mr. Peterson! I will email students this evening the schedule for tomorrow. We previewed this in class yesterday and today.
If you’re a family member and wish to hear more about the strategic changes we’re making, consider attending tomorrow’s Family Meet on Wednesday, November 18: 8:00AM – 8:20AM. I will go over the changes and ways for parents to provide feedback.
Our educators have spent significant time refining this Wednesday’s remote experience to be a pilot if we ever need to have consecutive remote learning days. We are hoping to get feedback from both students and parents on this experience. We believe our ambitious plans for Wednesday will make students happier and more engaged in remote learning. By attending the Family Meet, you will gain a better understanding of the changes and expectations we are implementing for students on that day. I hope you can make it!
The overview of tomorrow’s schedule is…
8:45AM – 9:00AM Community Meeting (Entire School)
9:10AM – 9:40AM First Learning Opportunity
9:45AM – 10:15AM Attendance & Advisory
10:30AM – 11:00AM Second Learning Opportunity
11:05AM – 11:35AM Third Learning Opportunity

Again, I will email all students with the schedule link.
Have a great remote Wednesday!
Dan Morrison, Principal
