CHATA Students Interviewed on ABC6 News about Presidential Inauguration!

 

Many thanks to Alexis Moberger, ABC6 Reporter, for interviewing our students in her piece ‘Inspirational;’ Columbus students watch democracy in action during inauguration.

“As the nation watched President Biden and Vice President Harris each take the oath of office, students watched as well. Some classrooms included the Inauguration in their lesson for the day. Students at Columbus Humanities, Arts & Technology Academy had their eyes glued to their classroom projector as they watched the inauguration of 46th President Joe Biden.”

“It made me have hope for the future…when I heard that they [the students] all had such passion towards [watching] this I was like yeah, let’s watch this and celebrate the future that I have in front of me,” said Ian George, Science teacher.

“I just feel like it’s really important to look to the future especially with Kamala Harris being the first Black Vice President… I feel like a lot of younger girls will look at her and be inspired and feel like they can do the same,” said John Marius, student.

A Day in the Life: Your Plan for Successful Online Learning

 

New to online learning? Worried about preparing for fall? Want to make sure your child can stay on track?  Don’t worry, we have you covered!

 

We have created a plan that is simple to follow no matter what grade your student is in!

  • Every day, make sure your student is logged in by 8:00am
  • Every day, your student will meet online with their teachers. You will be provided with a schedule the first week of school.
  • Not all learning will happen online. There will be time every day to students to practice what they have learned independently offline.
  • Your school will give you a schedule to help keep you on track and prepped for success.

You and your student have a login. You have a schedule. You have great teachers.

We just need a couple of things from you to help make this a great year.

  • Set up a work area for your student that is quiet and free of distractions.
  • Log in to Canvas every day with your observer account to help your student stay on track.
  • Take the parent orientation course to teach you about all the great tools that Canvas has to keep you and your student on track.

Get school updates, learning resources, tech support, and more in the tabs on our dedicated COVID-19 page.

Ready for the school year? You’ve got this!
