Dear Aiwin Parents,
We know that missing school because of the current emergency situation isn’t easy for our students and their families. We also know that there are ways to turn unexpected time at home into exciting opportunities for children to learn, think, and grow.
Our previous work to expand learning methodologies to meet a variety of learning styles has built a new skill set in our teachers and our students which adapts very well to an Online Learning experience. While we know that face-to-face instruction is critical to learning, we have been busy building skill-sets in our teaching staff to conduct this direct instruction through a virtual experience. While not perfect, we will be doing the best we can to adapt in these trying times.
With your extended your support, we are able to to continue to educate your child even at your home. I often say that children only learn best when school and home work together, never has this been more true!
And so I would like to share with you how we are all doing with our Online Learning and how you all have made it a positive learning experience for Aiwin students.
