Dear Cavalier Families:
Welcome Back to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining New Renaissance this year. The school year will begin with eLearning. In order to provide students with a rigorous and challenging curriculum, positive changes have been made to the eLearning model. Teachers will provide live daily virtual instruction designed to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring students that see the world through a more global, and intercultural perspective that supports understanding, and respect within a safe eLearning environment.
eLearning will take place Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 3:10 p.m. New Renaissance Middle School follows a burgundy/gold block schedule. Students have a total of 8 classes. Periods 1-4 on burgundy days and periods 5-8 on gold days. Students are expected to attend and actively participate in each class period during instructional time. I ask that you please monitor your child ‘s engagement, participation, and academic progress in each one of their daily classes. Additionally, evening help sessions will be available to provide students with assistance and support as needed.
I appreciate your patience and support as we work through these unprecedented times together. Please know that we are focused on making the e-learning experience as positive and productive as possible. We look forward to working with you and your family to make this school year a success!
Janet Morales, Principal
