The COVID Corner
(click the image to access our COVID dashboard)
For the past few months, we have used this special section to share updates from GLOBE's Reopening Committee on guidance to inform a safe return, and we will continue to address your questions and concerns here. GLOBE's COVID-19 tracker is updated each Wednesday at www.theglobeacademy.org. Please visit our site and click the graphic for weekly updates on the pandemic conditions with more detailed information about these data. If you have questions about GLOBE's Return-to-Campus Plan, please submit them here. We will do our best to answer as many questions as possible during the upcoming Town Hall and then back here in the weeks after.

GENERAL UPDATES
Important Survey!

Last Friday, you should have received GLOBE’s Intent to Return survey for the 2021-2022 school year. This form is for Re-Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year, letting us know if your GLOBE student(s) will be returning in August, 2021. The form MUST be complete by Friday, February 5, 2021.
Map Testing *UPDATE*
The GLOBE Academy will be offering in-person MAP testing ONLY for those students applying to DeKalb’s School Choice Magnet Programs (Wadsworth, Kittredge, Chapel Hill and Chamblee Middle Schools, and Southwest Dekalb and Chamblee Charter High Schools). Testing will only be offered to eligible students in grades 3-8. If you are in need of an in-person test administration for your student, please complete this form. Forms are due no later than Tuesday, January 26. Testing will be scheduled in early February.
From our Nurses:
This year more than ever, it is important for students to receive the flu vaccine. Because symptoms of the flu can mimic those of covid, it is important to try to lessen the confusion. Also, with hospitals filling up covid patients, it is prudent to stay out of hospitals and doctor’s offices as much as possible.

CONNECTIONS
Science LC

We are starting off many new units of science and to keep you connected to what is happening in class, here are the current units for each grade:
3rd - We are studying soils and will learn about fossils next. 
2nd - Ask your 2nd grader what they know about the life cycles of a frog, chicken and butterfly (or insect). We will learn about plant life cycles and pollination next. 
1st - Ask your 1st grader to draw you a model of the earth that includes the north pole and south pole. Our next unit will cover magnets.
K - Ask your Kindergartner to show you the results of our sink and float experiment. Then if you need a fun activity, do your own sinking and floating experiment at home.
