Preparing For Fall 2020

west

Preparing For Fall 2020

At this time, it is hard to anticipate what the fall of 2020 will look like for schools. We all want a return to normalcy, but we also understand there is a significant possibility our normal routines may be interrupted again. Much of what we do will be dictated by the Governor’s executive orders regarding schools over the next few months. 

Currently, we are developing plans for a return to school with additional safety measures, as well as a potential return to school using eLearning. Our teachers are training to develop and implement eLearning lessons, should they be necessary in the fall. Below you will find steps we are taking to ensure we can provide continuous education. If eLearning is mandated, we will provide detailed information to families as soon as possible. 

*Every student will receive an electronic device to take home
*We will provide satellite locations to receive Wi-Fi in areas without internet coverage
*We will provide instructions to parents and students on how to access Google Classroom and Google Meet
*Teachers will record lessons and post them in Google Classroom
*Teachers will use Google Meet to host live class sessions daily and record those sessions for those unable to attend the live session
*Teachers will be available to meet with students or parents face to face using Google Meet.
*Paper packets will still be available upon request

No matter what the fall throws at us, we will be prepared to deliver the best education possible to your student. We have the best teachers and they are working hard to ensure our students don’t miss a beat. 

Stay healthy!

The Arts in our Schools

89177666_3720910231284256_8017206153391898624_o

Our Fine Arts Academy is one of the best arts programs in southern Indiana. As many districts have scaled back their arts programs during recent budget cuts, we have continued to invest in our students providing several opportunities to excel in the arts.

We boast award-winning traditional art programs. Ceramics, sculpture, 2D, and 3D art students consistently win awards in local competitions. Likewise, our digital design classes create computer-generated art that also receives accolades each year.  

Music in our schools also boasts a proud tradition of excellence as our band and choir programs are both award-winning and legendary.  This is exemplified by past programs like Angelus which comprised seven young women from Mt. Vernon Senior High School who performed music ranging from medieval chant and polyphony to the American Sacred Harp tradition as well as contemporary American and Irish works.  As for the band, history was made last year as the Marching Wildcats were sent to consecutive state competitions.  Both of these programs are led by talented and energetic teachers (Ryan Knight - Choir / Joe Stone - Band) who I expect more great things from.    

March 12-14 the Mt. Vernon Sr. High School Fine Arts Academy is proud to present “Legally Blonde” in the PAC at 7:00 pm each night with an additional 2:00 pm matinée on Saturday.

“Legally Blonde is an exciting, modern musical for students and patrons of all ages, but we advise parents that the show is considered by Music Theatre International to be PG to PG-13 for its content. The musical comedy is very similar to the humor and plot of the 2001 movie starring Reese Witherspoon, so please consider this when deciding if your child should attend.”

Innovation and Digital Learning

Stream---twimg-1571330760210-1636556673

Student creativity and inquiry are a focus of the MSD of Mount Vernon.  We pride ourselves on promoting student engagement with the ever changing world around them.  The district has taken several steps over the years to create a learning environment that fosters innovation and embraces digital learning.

WSI has generously invested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) labs, known as Maker’s Space throughout the district.  Our elementary students are provided opportunities to creatively work through challenging problems and develop solutions using STEM kits throughout the year.  This year we expanded opportunities to compete in robotics competitions and we plan to grow our robotics program further in the years to come.

The high school recently added an Innovation and Open Source Learning class that focuses on student driven solutions for community and world problems.  Currently, our students are working on several projects for the course which include; a city beautification project, the creation of prosthetic limbs, podcasts that focus on current topics, a children’s book, and the use of denim for insulation in habitat homes.  Our students’ creativity and engagement never cease to amaze me.

Next year we plan to expand our Project Lead the Way curriculum to include the junior high and high schools.  We will focus on coding and engineering, creating opportunities for students to get a head start in careers with growing demand.  The MSD of Mount Vernon is dedicated to providing resources to our students that promote innovation.

On February 27, 2020 our district will participate in Digital Learning Day, drawing attention to the digital learning that happens daily in the classroom.  School will be in session.  I invite you to check out our social media feeds that day to see some of the innovative tools teachers use to help our students learn and grow!
