A Message to Parents about SUNY African Diaspora:
 
Good morning Parents,
 
I am your child’s SUNY African Diaspora Teacher, and I would first like to extend to you my warmest regards during this scary, complicated time.  I also want to give each student in my class the opportunity to continue to be challenged academically and maintain a sense of normalcy as it relates to their course work.  The assignments that I have posted in Google Classroom are not enrichment or review assignments.  They continue to deepen students’ understanding of African/African-American History.  Please remind your child to log into Google Classroom to complete assignments.  There are not many to complete, but completion is essential.  I have posted a project today which requires students to view a documentary, read a transcript, post their reactions to the documentary and create an outline.  Students will have two weeks to complete this project.  
 
Kindest Regards, 
A Message to Parents about ENL/ELA:

Dear Parents,

My name is Jodi Fernandez and I co-teach with Mr. Farez.  He and I work together to deliver rigorous, comprehensive, culturally reflective ELA/ENL instruction to your children.  I would first like to extend to you my warmest regards during this scary, complicated time.  I also want to give each student in my class the opportunity to continue to be challenged academically and maintain a sense of normalcy as it relates to their course work.  The assignments that I have posted on Google Classroom are not enrichment or review assignments.  They continue to deepen students’ reading and writing skills in English while they prepare for the English Regents.   Please remind your child to log into Google Classroom to complete assignments.  There are not many to complete, but completion is essential.  Every Friday, ours students read articles in Newsela, write responses and answer multiple-choice questions. Tomorrow, will be no different--students will be expected to log into Newsela to complete assignments.  
 
Warm regards,
