BCS Curriculum, Instruction and AssessmentDear Barker Families,
As we start the new school year, I know many of you are starting with a mix of emotions: excitement for the new year but trepidation of what it is going to look like and what might happen. Please know these are completely normal reactions and you are not alone.
Our teachers have been working hard all summer to ensure the best possible learning experience for our children, whether they are attending in-person or remotely. While school will seem different this year, please be assured the quality of education won’t be diminished.
Barker is implementing a one-to-one program for devices. This means that every student is assigned a device to use for the year. This year, PreK, Kindergarten, and 1st grade students will receive iPads to use for the year while 2nd through 12th grade students will be issued Chromebooks. A huge thank you to Mr. Luckman, Mr. D’Angelis, and Mr. Bodine for all their work this summer getting these ready for the school year.
It was a pleasure meeting everyone this past school year and I look forward to continuing to talk with everyone. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you for your help and support as we begin this school year.
