Dear Westropp Wildcats,
In light of the Coronavirus, we are providing at home activity packets for both reading and math for students in grades K-8. At this time CMSD is scheduled to be closed March 16th, 2020 - April 3rd, 2020. I will continue to keep all families updated via Automated Calls and through our Facebook page.
The printable at-home activity packs are designed to provide students with valuable self-directed exercises and practice during this extended absence from school. Each pack is designed to reinforce key concepts for a given grade. Encourage your student to do the best they can with this content—the most important thing is that they continue developing their mathematical fluency and skills. For students who need support with concepts or additional practice please use Khan Academy Engagency for support and additional practice. The reading packets include short stories, comprehension questions and writing prompts. Most lessons can be completed independently. However, there are some lessons that would benefit from the support of an adult. For additional reading support and practice please use Scholastic Learn from Home resources. I highly recommend all of our scholars to complete 20 minutes of independent reading per day through the closure. If books are needed please visit one of our 22 food sites and remember you can access free children books online. The most important thing is that they continue to work on their reading!
One of my favorite resources that aligns directly to our curriculm is Knowlege on the Go! You will need to help your scholars get started but it provides video lessons and worksheets (scholars can complete on a seperate paper). Click here for the link!
We ask that students return the packets to school when they return. Teachers will be required to grade the material as this work will count for a grade for each scholar. If your child should lose their packet we are suggesting that you visit our school webpage, https://www.clevelandmetroschools.org/westropp , where the materials can be downloaded and the students can simply record their responses on a separate sheet of paper without the need to print each document.
Stay up to date on the Coronavirus on the CMSD website, where we continue to add resources and post updates as we learn more.
Please Remember during this difficult time, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District is taking steps to help support students and families:
- The District is providing carryout meals to students 18 and younger at 22 school sites, as well as shuttle service to the sites. Download the flyer for more information.
- Our Customer Care Center may be reached by phone at 216-838-0000, Monday through Friday. Spanish speakers may call 216-838-0001. The District's downtown Welcome Center is closed.
- We have posted academic materials online and at meal sites for students to work on during the extended break. Students are expected to complete an English Language and Mathematics activity each day.
- The District continues to compile the latest information and resources related to the Coronavirus, adding the material to a page that already includes the list of meal sites, shuttle schedule and links to academic materials.
Always Climb… Because Wildcats Never Give Up!
Always a Proud Wildcat,
