IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ¡ANUNCIO IMPORTANTE!

(UPDATED)

Dear Champion Families and Students, March 20th, 2020

I am writing to give you a transparent update on how COVID-19 will affect our school community moving forward. Although the situation seems to change everyday, our administration and district team have set some parameters on what to expect in the coming weeks.

As you are aware, we were initially closed until March 30th due to a state mandate from Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent of Education Kathy Hoffman. Just tonight, the Governor mandated all schools across Arizona be closed until April 10th.

Although our doors will be closed for students, we will be transitioning to online and at-home learning. We, at Champion, want to ensure that your students are provided with materials and resources so that they can continue their instruction at home. We know this is a transition period and it will be an adjustment for everyone — but our goal is to do our absolute best to continue learning for our students while they are safe at home.

Starting next week, our teachers and coaches will be working to gather materials, resources and assign classwork for lessons beginning as soon as March 25th and will be fully implementing at- home-learning beginning March 30th. It is not mandatory that every student have access to the internet, and alternate paper- based material will be provided if they are unable to connect.

We advise that you stay connected to your child’s teacher via Class Dojo and if you haven’t already connected, please reach out to your child’s teacher for guidance.

Here are our goals for the transition to at-home learning :

  • Teachers will be planning for at-home instruction from 8am -12pm Monday-Friday. This will be a mixture of online and paper-based instruction.
  • Learning will be project based, with emphasis on reading and revision of material previously taught.
  • Arrangements for materials to be dropped off at neighborhood bus stop locations
    • for families who do not have ability to pick up from school.
  • FREE Meal service available to community members under the age of 18 available for pick up 8-9am Mon- Fri. ( email aschmeling@championschools.org for meal request numbers)
  • Mini at-home workout videos for students and families to try!
  • Open, fluid communication with families as the situation progresses.
  • Resources, both online and paper-based shared weekly with parents. Please keep in mind that this situation is constantly changing and we will do everything we can to make sure you’re up to date. I want to extend my best wishes during this uncertain time. Please reach out if you have any questions at all,

Stay healthy and safe,

Mrs. Lewis

Estimadas familias campeonas y estudiantes, 20 de marzo de 2020

Le escribo para brindarle una actualización transparente sobre cómo COVID-19 afectará a nuestra comunidad escolar en el futuro. Aunque la situación parece cambiar todos los días, nuestra administración y el equipo del distrito han establecido algunos parámetros sobre qué esperar en las próximas semanas.

Como saben, inicialmente estuvimos cerrados hasta el 30 de marzo debido a un mandato estatal del gobernador Doug Ducey y la superintendente de educación Kathy Hoffman. Justo esta noche, el Gobernador ordenó que todas las escuelas de Arizona estuvieran cerradas hasta el 10 de abril.

Aunque nuestras puertas estarán cerradas para los estudiantes, haremos la transición al aprendizaje en línea y en el hogar. Nosotros, en Champion, queremos asegurarnos de que sus estudiantes reciban materiales y recursos para que puedan continuar su instrucción en casa.

Sabemos que este es un período de transición y será un ajuste para todos, pero nuestro objetivo es hacer nuestro mejor esfuerzo para continuar aprendiendo para nuestros estudiantes mientras están seguros en casa. A partir de la próxima semana, nuestros maestros y entrenadores trabajarán para reunir materiales, recursos y asignar tareas de clase para las lecciones que comiencen tan pronto como el 25 de marzo y estarán implementando completamente el aprendizaje en el hogar a partir del 30 de marzo. No es obligatorio que todos los estudiantes tengan acceso a Internet, y se proporcionará material alternativo en papel si no pueden conectarse.

Le recomendamos que permanezca conectado con el maestro de su hijo a través de Class Dojo y, si aún no se ha conectado, comuníquese con el maestro de su hijo para obtener orientación.

Estos son nuestros objetivos para la transición al aprendizaje en el hogar:

  • Los maestros planearán la instrucción en el hogar de 8am a 12pm de lunes a viernes. Esta será una mezcla de instrucción en línea y en papel.
  • El aprendizaje estará basado en proyectos, con énfasis en la lectura y revisión de materialpreviamente enseñado.
  • Arreglos para dejar los materiales en las ubicaciones de las paradas de autobús del vecindario,
    • para familias que no tienen la capacidad de recoger en la escuela.
  • Servicio de comida GRATUITO disponible para miembros de la comunidad menores de 18 años disponible para recoger de 8 a 9 am de lunes a viernes. (envíe un correo electrónico a aschmeling@championschools.org para obtener los números de solicitud de comidas)
  • ¡Mini videos de ejercicios en casa para que estudiantes y familias prueben!
  • Comunicación abierta y fluida con las familias a medida que avanza la situación.
  • Recursos, tanto en línea como en papel, compartidos semanalmente con los padres.
  • Tenga en cuenta que esta situación cambia constantemente y haremos todo lo posible para asegurarnos de que esté actualizado.
  • Quiero extender mis mejores deseos durante este tiempo incierto. Comuníquese si tiene alguna pregunta,

Mantente sano y seguro

We are a K-8th grade tuition free Charter School, that  implements a rigorous, content rich curriculum.Our Sport emphasis promotes fitness and healthy lifestyle. Here you can access all the latest updates and information regarding enrollment, academics and what’s happening at Champion Schools!

 

Comprehensive Program of Instruction

Champion Schools is powerful learning community for ALL students, regardless of their educational backgrounds. Our learning environment includes many opportunities to work collaboratively. We use common core, project based learning and utilize the community as a laboratory for students to have hands-on experiences.

These types of learning activities activate the imagination, stimulate critical thinking and develop problem-solving skills. We believe in every student’s natural desire to learn and want to bring ALL of our students into the educational mainstream by the end of middle school.

 

The POWER of SPORTS in SCHOOLS

Kids who participate in sports and fitness programs are healthier and more academically successful. Participating in sports builds self-esteem and increases grade and test performance.

There is a growing body of research that proves that students need adequate amounts of physical activity throughout the school day. This daily activity not only prevents obesity but supports better academic performance. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) states that physical activity has a positive impact on cognitive skills and academic behavior.

Exercise directly impacts the behavior and development of the brain. “The effects of physical activity on cognition are particularly important in the highly plastic developing brains of youth,” according to Charles E. Basch, Teachers College at Columbia University. He states that, “exercise effects executive functioning by increasing oxygen flow to the brain and brain neurotransmitters including brain-derived neurotrophins. This family of proteins assures the survival, development and function of neurons in areas responsible for learning, memory, and higher thinking, important components of improved academic performance.”

Physical activity fosters an environment of social-connectedness. When students’ teammates are also their classmates, the opportunity to learn how to play as a team, transfers to learning collaboratively in the classroom. Students who play sport together share a common set of rules. Sports set children up for a healthy adulthood, perpetuating a cycle of well-being for generations to come.

The evidence is clear. Physical activity should have a place in the curriculum of every school that’s serious about teaching its kids.
