Dear Bolinas-Stinson School Families and Community,

As we move forward into summer, I wanted to share some summer resources with you. I hope you and your family find creative ways to relax and stay active this summer! 

CAMP KINDA VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMP

Camp Kinda (Espanol Camp Kinda) is a free Virtual Summer Camp from some of the most innovative minds in online learning. Camp Kinda (Espanol Camp Kinda) is available online for free to all families due to philanthropic support. It will provide approximately three to four hours of engaging free content per day to families around the country.

While nothing can replace the joys of an outdoor summer, Camp Kinda makes the best of what is possible: mixing fun and enriching activities, all of which are designed to put minimal strain on working parents. This summer, Camp Kinda will provide approximately three to four hours of engaging free content per day to families around the country. Camp Kinda will be available online from June 1st to September 1st, 2020 for free due to philanthropic support.

LIST OF ONLINE RESOURCES TO HELP SUPPORT DISTANCE LEARNING FROM A~Z!

Please use this link to access online resources that have been hand-picked by educators to enhance learning at home: List of Online Resources to Help Support Distance Learning from A~Z! I have tried to put them all in one place to make it easier for parents/students to access. I will continue to update the list with new additions and remove links that no longer work. Please let me know if you have recommendations or if any of the links are faulty.

THIRD TRIMESTER REPORT CARDS

Available Now On the Aeries Parent Portal

Third trimester report cards are now available for parents to access through their secure Aeries Parent Portal. Report cards contain academic narratives that outline student progress and areas of need during the third trimester. Due to the limitations of distance learning and assessing student progress, academic marks will not be given this trimester on your child’s standards based report card. Teachers have provided recommendations for areas students should continue to practice over the summer. Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

2020-21 SCHOOL REOPENING PARENT SURVEY & TASK FORCE

If you haven’t already, please find time to take the parent survey emailed to parents on June 23rd, 2020.

Earlier this week the BSUSD Reopening Taskforce emailed parents the School Reopening Parent Survey and shared reopening information from the Marin Health Department and MCOE. Thank you to the many families who have shared their feelings, ideas, and concerns about reopening school for the 2020-21 school year. The information you provide will help the taskforce create recommendations for the safe reopening of our school. If you are interested in being considered for the School Reopening Task force, please send your name to johannas@bolinas-stinson.org.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. 

Warmly,

 

Michelle Stephens
