Today is the final day for our Domino’s Pizza fundraiser. Why not give yourself a day off from cooking for your hungry, learn-from-home children?
Between 10:30 am and 9:00 pm you can order a large (14″), one-topping pizza online from Domino’s Pizza on 221 Holiday Inn Drive for just $10, and $5 of this will go to support St. Elizabeth School! Remember to use the code CARE for each pizza that you order.
Additional toppings cost $1.75 and include: pepperoni, sausage, bacon, extra chees, olives, peppers, onions, mushrooms, pineapple, tomatoes, and spinach.
Thank you for supporting St. Elizabeth School.
Good morning, Eagles families
As we begin on-line, synchronous learning, here are a few reminders:
The online school day follows the same “bell times” as in-person school. That means that school begins at 9:10 am and ends at 3:40 pm. Recesses and lunchtimes are at the normal school times. Students are expected to remain on-line for the duration of the day.
If your child is going to be late or absent, we ask parents to call the school office (519-651-0400) to let Lisa know. Attendance is taken twice every day, mornings and afternoons.
Synchronous learning does not mean that the teacher is on-screen teaching “live” all day. Synchronous teaching involves some time for a lesson and then asynchronous work for the students with the teacher available for questions from students (either through email or an open link).
Let’s hope that it won’t be too long until we are together in-person again.
