Monday Morning Meetings and Enrichment Schedule
Monday Enrichment Blocks
Monday Schedule at Lemon Road
Thank you for helping your children and teachers make the first three days of school fantastic! This newsletter is to communicate our plan for Mondays. Lemon Road will offer synchronous learning on Mondays from 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM. Afternoons will be set aside for students to complete assignments from the teacher and engage in family choice activities. Students will also have access to watch lessons from previous weeks if they choose.
Every Lemon Road student will log in on Monday mornings for a morning meeting that will begin at 8:30. Attendance will be taken for all students during this time. This morning meeting will allow children to visit with the students in all classes in their grade. The morning meeting will introduce the upcoming Positivity Project character strength and review the previous week's strength. To access the Monday grade level morning meeting, students will use the link emailed to them called Monday Meeting and Grade Level Specials. If your child is having difficulty finding and organizing their BBCU links, here is a video developed to walk students through the process.
While students participate in school virtually, teachers will not be assigning home learning (homework) outside of school hours on Tuesday – Fridays with the exception of asking all students to read each evening either independently or with a family member. However, all students may receive assignments to be complete independently and asynchronously during the day on Monday. This work will be assigned by your child's teachers and might utilize resources on the computer like ST Math or tasks away from the computer like finishing a writing assignment. The work may be done anytime after 9:10 on Mondays with the exception of time spent in assigned groups as described below.
Required Small Group Sessions
Lemon Road will be phasing in small group sessions with teachers on Mondays after Morning Meeting. These sessions will begin in the next few weeks and will target your child’s specific learning needs. If your child is invited by a teacher to join a small group session, this is required. These sessions will be communicated by the teacher and your child will receive the time and log in information from the instructor. Be sure to help your child check their @fcpsschools.net email account on Friday or over the weekend to confirm any required classes for Monday.
Monday Enrichment Sessions
Beginning Monday, September 14, Lemon Road will offer four enrichment blocks that are open to all students and participation is optional. We invite all students to join sessions interesting to them. Enrichment sessions will be accessed through the Lemon Road Students blackboard site. To access, log into FCPS 24-7 Learning using your child’s ID number and password. Find the Lemon Road Students Link and then click on the Collaborate Ultra tab on the left side. A menu of enrichment choices will appear. We recommend you use the search feature to search for the name of the course or teacher to narrow options. Your child may participate in as many or as few enrichment opportunities each week – participation is not required. Below are the enrichment opportunities for the first few weeks of school. When sessions are added or modified, we will update the chart and share the week prior. All synchronous sessions will end by 11:30 AM. Please email Ashley Castillo (@email) with any questions related to Mondays or the teacher listed for questions specific to their course.
