SGES Switching to Online Learning for the Rest of the 2019-20 School Year

All Oregon schools were ordered closed by Oregon Governor Kate Brown on Friday, March 13, 2020 to help stop the spread of the Corona virus, and SGES has followed that order since then.

All enrolled preschool and prekindergartens students will receive weekly Reggio Emilia-influenced provocations children can do at home using materials you probably have on hand, starting with themes started in our classrooms and building on them as we learn children’s interests and follow the pattern of nature and family life.

Teachers will host live online Zoom meetings for students (parents and siblings welcome to attend) each week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Schedule:

Tuesday 9:00 am: Prekindergarten class meeting Tuesday 9:30 am: Preschool class meeting (Prekindergarten students welcome to attend too!) Wednesday 9:30 am: Spirituality for both classes Thursdays 9:00 am: Prekindergarten class meeting Thursday 9:30 am: Preschool class meeting (Prekindergarten students welcome to attend too!)

The school will occasionally offer packets of supplies to use for provocations and for general use for creative time at home that families can pick up from in front of the school. Documentation portfolios and students’ belongings have been sent home as of 4/18/20.

We will not be maintaining any phone communication with our school phone number. At this point the church phone number will also not be monitored. The school/church building will be closed for the duration.

We will maintain our Facebook and Instagram pages throughout the closure to stay in contact with the public and families.

We are in this together- stay healthy if you can, and we look forward to when we can come together again in our learning community.
