Help me give my students Character Education while they are learning from home. We are asking for an iPad with a large storage feature so that we can record and edit our daily Morning Show and monthly Assemblies.
Our Elementary School Community consists of 500 amazing 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Our district is located in an impoverished area in upstate New York, where we have just learned that our building must remain closed due to a 20% cut in the state education budget. While heartbroken, our community remains strong and committed to providing the best remote education possible.
Character Education plays a central role in our school.
Each month we focus on a character trait such as Compassion, Respect, Friendship or Honesty. We provide monthly assemblies and a daily Morning Show to highlight these traits and demonstrate how to use them. This program is one of the crucial initiatives we intend to continue during our closure
Our children strive to do their best day in and day out despite the extreme adversity they are facing. These students deserve the best education possible and the tools needed to become 21st Century learners.
One of our biggest challenges in remote learning is how to continue providing our character building programs. Our daily Morning Show and monthly Character Assembly are central to developing a positive school community.
Our goal is to pre-record our character programs, so we can continue to offer them while students learn from home.
An iPad with large storage capacities will allow us to record, edit and post our videos to our school sites. This ability will be essential in our efforts to continue to build our positive school community even though we are not together.
