What You Need to Know Now 

Curriculum Night 

Now that we have two weeks under our belts, we would like for you to join your child's teachers as they go over the curriculum that will be taught this year and "classroom" expectations. Each grouping of grade levels in K-5 will have two 30-minute presentations for you to choose from to attend. In Middle School, the parents will follow their child's schedule for the synchronous days.  
Lower Campus - September 8, 2020
  • K-1, 5:30 or 6 p.m.
  • 2-3, 7 or 7:30 p.m.
Upper Campus - September 10, 2020
  • 4-5, 5:30 or 6 p.m.
  • MS, First period starts at 7 p.m.
The link to join the groups will be sent out the morning of, and it will be like the virtual orientation process where you can click on your child's teacher's link to join the presentation.
GLOBE Distance Learning ... A few things to keep in mind
Responsive Classroom

AT GLOBE, we believe the first few weeks of school should be spent laying the foundation for a successful school year. During this time, teachers are focused on getting to know the students and building community.  They are also explicitly teaching the routines and procedures so that the students are able to work with autonomy for the rest of the year. Spending the extra time now before introducing academics allows the students to practice and for it to become automatic in a non-threatening  environment. The intentions of the first weeks are to create a climate and tone of warmth and safety, teach the schedules and routines and what the expectations are, and establish expectations about how we will learn together in the year ahead.

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
