Hello, Eagles! This is Mrs.Keipp with five messages: Communication, End of Year Reflection, Winter Homework, First Day of Spring Semester. There will be an additional message if you are a student who received an incomplete work form from one of your teachers via Schoology messages. Tremendous appreciation to the HEROIC lift of teachers, students, and families to understand and implement Monday’s “Additional Time” announcement by LAUSD. Mental Health/Wellness: On this Thoughtful Thursday, we invite you to enjoy this under 4 minute video created by Dr. Gindin to bring light to this season for everyone. As you listen to the words of “Lift Every Voice and Sing”, we invite you to reflect on some of the hopeful and victorious moments of the Fall semester: https://iframe.dacast.com/b/108898/f/998166 Communication- Eagle Rock Rock Jr./Sr. HS will be closed for Winter Break starting December 19 and will resume January 11, 2021. If you need assistance during this time, please call Local District Central Office at (213)241-0126. End of Semester Reflection One of my mentors Meg Wheatley wrote, “Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.” Kindly respond to an 11-question reflection about the Fall. We will use this data in January to continue to grow. It’s easier than the School Experience Survey! Thanks: https://forms.gle/BtChScHd9jS8aApE8 For Winter homework, we invite you to engage in Community Service/Service as Action- One of the requirements of International Baccalaureate (IB) is to engage in activities that help us think globally and act locally. We invite you to engage in safe, virtual acts of kindness during the holidays (and year round)! Doing good for others is great, important work. Informational videos by our IB MYP Coordinator Mr. Elizondo are here: https://erhs.la/myp/sa Fun Friday update-Grades are due at 9am tomorrow. It is a regular Friday, starting at 9am with period 7, then HR H, HR L, and ending with period 8 until 2:15pm. Winter Plus- If you are a junior or senior who requested Winter Plus credit recovery, please monitor your LAUSD mymail email for more information. In closing, attached in the email is a Gift of Words from our Eagles to you. My gift to you is “Aloha Aku, Aloha Mai,” which means “love outward, love inward; love everyone and everything.” Hate is easy. Love is hard and overcomes all. Yesterday, LAUSD reported 900 positive cases. There is suffering and resilience in our community. Attached is also a resource from School Mental Health. Stay safer at home, Happy Holidays, and see you on January 12, 2021, Eagles. My family will be enjoying Puerto Backyardia sans WiFi. Monday, January 11, 2021, is a Pupil Free Day for faculty training. There will be a BBC reminder on January 10, 2021.
