We have classrooms set up for each grade level to allow for optimal teaching appropriate for each age/level. Each grade level has an assigned teacher that will implement the instruction per Spring ISD's guidance as much as feasibly possible.
In following with Spring ISD's elementary schedule, all school age children will need to be present at Parent's Choice by 8:15am so that they have ample time to eat breakfast before being required to log on at 8:35am for the start of their teacher-directed remote learning. We will be following Spring ISD's schedule, which is as follows:
8:35am - 10:00am - Teacher-directed, subject-specific instruction
10:00am - 11:30am - Independent work OR small group instruction/Tutorials as assigned
11:30am - 12:00pm - Lunch/Brain Break
12:00pm - 1:30pm - Teacher-directed, subject-specific instruction
1:30pm - 3:00pm - Independent work OR small group instruction/Tutorials as assigned
3:00pm - 3:40pm - Office hours for students/parents needing support (During this time, we will move into our regularly scheduled after school program)
Children will need to bring in their own electronic device provided by Spring ISD or personal device to use for remote learning as well as over the ear headphones with a microphone for optimal learning. Each classroom will have ten students in it that will be spread out, but for optimal learning we are asking that your child bring in headphones with a microphone so their instructor can hear them and they can hear their instructor. We will have a few devices on hand for use by those children whose devices are unusable for whatever reason. Parent's Choice will not and cannot be responsible for any lost or damaged items. Your child will be responsible for their belongings.
We feel it is vital to have a direct line of communication between your child's elementary school teacher and our Parent's Choice teacher, so we do ask that you give all of our information to your child's elementary school teacher.
Our goal is to assist as much as we possibly can so that you as a parent can focus on work when at work, and then focus on just enjoying time with your family when home.
