Dear St. George Parents,

Last week I listed the teachers’ pros and cons from this school year, and I promised that I would share what the students revealed are their likes and dislikes from this year. Of course, the answers vary from grade level to grade level, so this is just a “picture” of what they have been sharing with me.

Most students like having all the teachers in a grade level and many of them like not switching classes. They seem to enjoy having all their belongings with them and not having to worry about which supplies to pack and bring to another classroom. Then again, I also heard that some students miss switching classes. They like having a water bottle and enjoy eating in their classrooms. Some like lunch in the classroom because it is not as noisy as the cafeteria and some like it because they get to watch movies. Almost everyone enjoys playing on the football field at recess, but they would like to be able to play with all the students and not just the ones in their homeroom. Inside arrival and dismissal is liked by most because it gives students time to do some work, read a book or get some extra help from the teacher. Students definitely don’t like that we missed the fair but are excited about being able to begin sports. They enjoy virtual morning assembly because they get to see their siblings, friends, and little buddies. They are happy to be at school and wish that the virus would go away. I agree!

Talking with the teachers and students has been such a wonderful experience. I am amazed how everyone is able to find positives amidst all the changes we have had and I am filled with joy to hear that the students and teachers have embraced some of the changes and even want to keep some of them in place next year. We have learned a lot this year and will use this knowledge as we plan for next year.
