GLOBE Distance Learning ... A few things to keep in mind
Reopening Plan Review Team
*We are unsure when we will be able to have school back in the building. When we do, whether it is hybrid or all in, we want to be more than ready. We are looking for some parents who would like to be a part of GLOBE's reopening plan review team. We are looking for parents with expertise in this area of opening spaces during this pandemic. (FORM)

Parent Sessions
GLOBE recently offered four parent sessions by the leadership team to provide insight for parents to better prepare for school in virtual mode. If you weren't able to stream them live, find the recordings and slides from each here.

In-Person Virtual Learning Assistance for Kindergarten-5th Grade
The ECP Program is offering childcare, which is intended for elementary age children whose parents must leave the home to work. The Aftercare workers will be providing a safe space using strict COVID-19 guidelines.

The GLOBE's In-Person Virtual Learning Care (IVLC) is designed to provide students a comfortable and safe environment to accomplish their virtual learning/digital assignments, grow and play in a safe space. Kindergarten thru 3rd grade will meet at Lower Campus from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4th and 5th grade will meet at Upper Campus from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Space will be extremely limited. There will only be 12 openings for each grade level.

MAP Testing

We have been working with MAP this summer to use their new remote testing so that we can have data as we move forward this year with our students. See below for our testing window and the parent session dates. Details for your specific testing days will come from teachers.

MAP testing will be the weeks of August 31 through September 11, 2020

Upper Campus
Upper Campus MAP testing will take place as per the following schedule:
9/1 - Reading
9/2 - Language
9/3 - Math

All students will receive an email on Sunday, August 30, with a link to a Google Meet for their testing session. Testing will take place at the same time each day either 8:00 a.m. or 12 p.m. There will be no regular classes (synchronous or asynchronous) on these days; students will have project work to complete independently when not testing.

*A Zoom Parent Session for Kindergarten and 1st Grade Parents will be held August 27, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. Click here to attend

LC tips for GLOBE Language:


1. Step by step:
First 6 Weeks of School are for practicing language, routines, and expectations
2. Check for schedules:
  • Email/ Weekly Communications from the teacher
  • Google Classroom
  • Slide decks in Google Classroom
  • Take note of the 20 mins. your child’s group will meet!
3. Class time is class time.
Make an appointment with your teacher to ask specific questions about your child’s schedule.
4. Have a positive attitude towards your child’s learning process and support from home:
  • Create a hand-made word wall in the language with drawings - add 3 words/phrases each week (K example: Hello, Goodbye, Good Morning)
  • Listen to music in the language
  • Watch familiar movies in the language
