PAA Weekly Update, April 19, 2020

Good Afternoon Pueblo Academy of Arts Families,

This is Mr. Farias with the weekly update. 

A Yearbook reservation form is now located on the PAA website. There are limited quantities. There are less than 100 yearbooks left for purchase. They are currently $25 and are being sold on a first come, first serve basis. Payment will be collected at the time of distribution.

We’ve heard from some families indicating that they are not sure where or how to check on their student’s work during distance learning. In response, we have posted a video on the PAA web site that will help parents navigate Google Classrooms. This short tutorial provides parents’ with essential directions for navigating the web based program. 

We encourage parents to sit with their students frequently to review their submitted assignments in the Assignments Tab. Teachers then transfer these grades into Infinite Campus. Grades for 4th quarter are being reported in Infinite Campus, not Google Classroom. Teachers are seeing that some students are just clicking "turn in" on assignments, but the assignments are empty. This can misinform parents with the illusion that the work has been completed when it, in fact, has not. I've asked our teachers to return these assignments back to the student. In some cases, messages from the teacher may accompany the returned assignment. 

Families and students are encouraged to reach out to their teachers if they have any questions or concerns around an assignment or grade.

Gear Up and Trio Upward Bound tutoring, unfortunately, will  be suspended for the remainder of the school year.

Closer to the end of the year, we are hoping to coordinate a time for families to collect their personal items from the school. As soon as we are able to do so, I will provide information to you through the weekly update and the PAA website. 

I wish you and your family a healthy, happy, and safe week ahead. 

Have a great evening.
