The French Remote Tutoring Program
Johnson: We are so excited to have completed our first week of remote French tutoring! As more tutors’ background checks have cleared, we have created more groups and notified additional Johnson families of their time day/slot for tutoring. You should have received a link via email with instructions. If you applied and have not received information, you will receive an email next week with further instructions. 
PowerSchool
LFNO Johnson campus uses PowerSchool for grades and attendance. There is a parent and student facing portal that is now set up and instructions for accessing it will be mailed home next week. Please reach out to admissions@lfno.org if your home address has changed since completing summer re-registration forms. This replaces Unified Classroom, which we are no longer using.
MAX Book Club Subscription
Every year, LFNO encourages reading in French : Through the MAX Book Club, every year, children all over the world receive 8 books a year from November to June, for different levels. Real creation books around which your child can build his very own personal library. 

Receiving one book a month in the current context is a real pleasure and helps not to leave all the room to the screens - to subscribe, please follow the different steps in the email sent by your child's teacher. Or follow the links below.

Objective: The Moon!
Imagine - what if together, we could walk to the moon!? From September 23 to 30, all students in Brittany, France will record all their moves with friends, relatives (and overseas twins) to cover the distance between the Earth and the Moon, 385,000 kilometers.

On the 23rd, a step and kilometer counter will be available on the Rennes Academy website http://www.ac-rennes.fr/ 
They can walk, run, swim, ride, jump...
The aim of the operation is to remind young people to stay active despite the current situation.
Johnson Facility
 At the beginning of the summer, we announced the HVAC work to be done at the Johnson campus by NOLA Public School (NOLAPS). Although we are nearing the substantial completion phase of the project, some mechanical issues came up, causing some condensation in the building. NOLAPS has taken some steps to address the immediate issue. NOLAPS has also met with LFNO, the engineer and contractor to address the issue at the sources. LFNO will continue working to work with NOLAPS to ensure that all conditions are met for our school physical reopening.
