Quincy Update

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

As we all move into well-deserved summer mode, we’d like to reiterate these two things:

  • First, thank you so very much for everything you did to keep your children safe and to continue their learning. We have the very best families at Quincy and we know that this time has not been easy for any of you. We appreciate you more than you know.
  • Second, no matter what school looks like in the fall, we will get through it together. We are hopeful that we can have all students back in school all day, every day. That being said, ZPS leaders are working through various plans in preparation for whatever the fall brings. No matter what happens, please rest assured that we will work our tails off to make sure that every student is safe, valued, loved, and learning.

The 2019/20 school year was like no other, but it was WAY more than COVID-19. It was fun to look back at the seven months we had together at school. Looking at these sweet faces and good times makes us SO excited for the fall.

Stay safe and enjoy each other. We love you all!!

A MESSAGE ABOUT JUNE REPORT CARDS

Parents/Caregivers,
Thank you for your partnership through these challenging times. The school year certainly didn’t end the way any of us would’ve wanted, but we continue to be grateful to work alongside you and your child at Zeeland Public Schools.
Since we had recently shared progress information with you regarding your child shortly before the school closure, we are not planning to send home our typical end of year report cards. Please know that we will work hard as a team in the fall to assess where your child is and to support him/her with their next steps in learning.
In the meantime, please remember the Remote Learning Plans that were just shared this week have many great learning opportunities to share with your child during these summer days. Look for new RLP’s later this summer to keep that learning going! Take care and let us know what we can do to support you and your family.

Brandi-Lyn Mendham, Ph.D.

Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum
Zeeland Public Schools

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

It is hard to believe this is the last week of the 2019/20 school year. We want to tell you two really important things.

First, thank you so very much for everything you did to keep your children safe and to continue their learning. We have the very best families at Quincy and we know that this time has not been easy for any of you. We appreciate you more than you know.

Second, no matter what school looks like in the fall, we will get through it together. We are hopeful that we can have all students back in school all day, every day. That being said, ZPS leaders are working through various plans in preparation for whatever the fall brings. No matter what happens, please rest assured that we will work our tails off to make sure that every student is safe, valued, loved, and learning.

We would like to offer Quincy families one last opportunity to say good-bye with a “Drive BYE” from 11:30-12:00pm on Friday, June 5 at Quincy. We invite you to loop around the back parking lot where you will find Quincy staff playing instruments, cheering and waving just like we do on every last day of school. Students and families remain in cars and wave like crazy as we wish you a terrific summer.

Stay safe and enjoy each other. We love you all!!

gRADUATION BALLOONSFIFTH GRADE “DRIVE-THROUGH” GRADUATION

We know our fifth graders are sad to be leaving the Q without all the fun end-of-year activities like camp and graduation. We’d like to celebrate them with a “Drive-Through” Graduation. We will play Pomp and Circumstance as families drive through the bus loop in the back parking lot of Quincy. Each car will stop at a designated spot to present fifth graders with certificates and a special treat from PTO.

Please have fifth graders wear their graduation t-shirts that they picked up at materials distribution. Also, please note that students and families will not be able to get out of their cars. We can’t wait to cheer for your fifth grader on Friday, June 5 from 11-11:30am!

We encourage you to watch the 20-minute video designed to help support parents during the COVID-19 pandemic and provide direction on how to support children. Although we are all living through a trauma event, it does not have to be traumatizing if supports are put in place, both for us as parents and for our children. Additional resources and the video can be accessed at: https://debh-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/…

Quincy Update

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

To say that this year has not ended in the way we wanted it to is a serious understatement. The loss of our classroom communities, our school community, all the “rights of passage” for our students, and the opportunity to uplift and support each other face-to-face has been devastating. We worry about the months of learning our students have lost but we know we can help them recover from that. We also know that we can get through whatever comes next as long as we are in it together.

We have crafted a plan that will help us exchange materials in a safe way and you can see that plan in detail below. But what the plan doesn’t address are the potential tears families and students will have as they drive through the materials pick-up line. Waving from car windows, wearing masks, and being unable to chat or give hugs may bring on a full range of emotions you didn’t expect. As you pick up materials according to the schedule below, please know that we will have one last opportunity to wave good-bye. More information about that will come at the end of next week.

We can’t wait to see you all, even from a car window. We love you and miss you so much! Stay safe and enjoy each other.

Love, Your Q-Crew

QUINCY STUDENT MATERIALS PICK-UP SCHEDULE

We have been working hard to bag up student materials and we have created a plan that will allow us to get materials back to you and keep everyone safe. Families will stay in their vehicles and drive to Quincy’s back parking lot where teachers and staff will be ready with bags of student materials, organized by grade level. For instance, if you have fifth and third grade children, you will pull up to the fifth grade station first. You will roll down your car window and hand the staff member any materials you need to return and the staff member will hand you a bag that contains your child’s belongings. Then, you will progress along the route and stop at the third grade station to exchange materials there. For those of you who are visual learners, here is a video that describes this process.

In preparation for your time slot, please gather up all JRL books, library books, teacher books, purple Quincy bags, bus tags, etc It will be helpful to put the materials in a plastic grocery bag to hand to a staff member. Also, please have a piece of paper in your front window indicating your child’s last name, first name, grade level and teacher. We are asking that all parents and students remain in cars to help with the traffic flow. Please let your child know that they will be able to wave from the car and that his/her teacher will be wearing a mask. We are working on a “good-bye” opportunity yet to come on a future day, so please stay tuned.

Please note that pick-up times are assigned by the letter of the alphabet that begins a student’s last name. This is going to be a busy time, so we do ask that you come during the time assigned. If you are not able to make it during that time, feel free to send a family member or a friend. If you absolutely are unable to make arrangements, please email Mary Wilkos (our new front desk secretary) at mwilkos@zps.org. Also, please plan on turning right when you are exiting the Quincy parking lot to help with traffic flow.

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

Oh boy! Week 6 of Remote Learning means that we have just three weeks left.

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

We have survived seven weeks of this crisis! Please pause and give yourself a pat on the back. You are doing a great job, and we appreciate you very much.

This upcoming week, May 4-8, is Teacher Appreciation Week! I know that you join me in being very thankful for the work Quincy teachers are doing to keep students connected. None of us would’ve chosen our circumstances, and we are so grateful that our teachers quickly learned new skills and figured out ways to help our students feel loved and valued even when we cannot be together.

The Quincy PTO asked us to share these Teacher Appreciation ideas with you:

– Have students make thank you signs and hold them up when logging onto Zoom meetings next week. Have them cover the whole screen with their picture/sign and then teachers can take pictures/screenshots. It would be fun to see how they turn out, and we would love to share them to the Quincy DUX Facebook page!

– Have kids/parents come up with a favorite memory of their teacher from this school year and share it to the Quincy DUX Facebook page next week.

As a reminder, your students’ teachers are here for you and I am here for you, every step of the way. The easiest way to contact teachers or me is through email (aapsey@zps.org).

We want to know how you are doing. We would love hearing from you through this quick, one question survey. Just click this LINK to access it. The only purpose of the survey is to provide help to Quincy families where it is needed. We have your back!

Stay safe and enjoy each other. We love you all!!

QUINCY FAMILY KAHOOT GAME with MRS. VERBEEK

Please join us for our first ever Quincy Family Kahoot Game!  Prizes will be given to our winning families!  Test your Cinco de mayo/Latino culture/Spanish language knowledge, learn something new, laugh and have fun!  Students, invite your parents to participate along with you!
When is it?  This Tuesday, Cinco de mayo, at 6:30pm!  untitled
Please follow these directions to participate!
1.  Click on the zoom link below these directions.  Because this will potentially be a large group, the waiting room feature will be on.  I will only allow names that I recognize, so please have your child’s/children’s first and last name as the ID.  (If you’re not sure how to do that, feel free to google it and figure it out between now and Tuesday. 🙂
2.  You all will be muted.  If you have a question that has to be asked, please use the chat feature.
3.  You will need a second electronic device to participate in the Kahoot game.  I will give directions on how to join the Kahoot game at the beginning of our zoom meeting.
4.  Zoom allows a max of 100 participants, so I recommend joining a little early and making sure your ID is your child’s first and last name!  I can’t accept anything other than their first and last name.
Can’t wait!  See you Tuesday!

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

Our first (and hopefully ONLY) Virtual Spirit Week has been so fun! Thank you for sharing your Quincy spirit! Today is “Fitness Friday” and Mr. VK shared a fun video on The Quincy Dux Facebook page, be sure to check it out!

You are doing a great job making the Remote Learning Plans happen. We got feedback that you would like the RLPs earlier in the weekend to begin outlining the learning plan for the week ahead. We will be emailing you on Saturdays at 5:30pm from now on. Rather than emailing on both Friday and Saturday, we will include a link to this weekly update in the Saturday email. To keep things simple for your family, plan on one email from us per week that will arrive to your inbox on Saturdays at 5:30pm.

As a reminder, your students’ teachers are here for you and I am here for you, every step of the way. The easiest way to contact teachers or me is through email (aapsey@zps.org).

We want to know how you are doing. We would love hearing from you through this quick, one question survey. Just click this LINK to access it. The only purpose of the survey is to provide help to Quincy families where it is needed. We have your back!

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

We LOVE seeing the learning activities this week. Thank you so much for making the Remote Learning Plans happen. We have received great feedback from you in that you appreciate the variety of activities and that the plans have a reasonable amount of work. It has been fun to see students connecting with their teachers and with each other in Zoom meetings. Seriously, we cannot thank you enough for all you are doing to help students maintain academic skills. You are incredible!

We will continue to email out the RLPs each Monday at 8:00am. The ZPS team also created a document to help you organize your week, and that will be included in the email on Monday and it will be included on our website, so be on the lookout for that.

As a reminder, your students’ teachers are here for you and I am here for you, every step of the way. The easiest way to contact teachers or me is through email (aapsey@zps.org).

Quincy Update

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

If we had a quarter for every time someone used the word “unprecedented” during this COVID-19 crisis, we’d be rich. Are you ready to earn another quarter and to embark on another unprecedented mission–remote learning? Your ZPS team has been working hard to develop a learning plan that is relatively easy to implement and helps prevent academic regression in significant areas. You can expect the ZPS “Remote Learning Plans” to be emailed to you at 8am on Monday mornings so you have all the information you need to get started for the week.

The ZPS Remote Learning Plan is aligned with the guidance from the governor’s order and is focused on compassion over compliance because we know that many families are being stretched to their maximum right now just trying to cope with everyday life during our “stay at home” order. We are keeping our maintenance learning plans reasonable in light of our current circumstances.

As a reminder, your students’ teachers are here for you and I am here for you, every step of the way. The easiest way to contact teachers or me is through email (aapsey@zps.org).

We want to know how you are doing. We would love hearing from you through this quick, one question survey. Just click this LINK to access it. The only purpose of the survey is to provide help to Quincy families where it is needed. We have your back!

Our Facebook LIVE read alouds will continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am starting on Tuesday, April 14th. Don’t worry if you can’t catch them live, they are uploaded to Facebook so your family can view it later. I also post them to YouTube–you can either follow my YouTube channel or you can google it to find the read alouds. I love staying connected to students and families this way and we typically have 40-60 families viewing the read alouds live, which is incredible. You can check out the read aloud from Wednesday below where I introduce a new member of our family!

SPRING FLING UPDATE

springfling1

The PTO met virtually this past week and we have a plan! We are going to host a “Fall Fling” this coming school year. As soon as our “stay at home” order is lifted and we have more information on what the future will look like, we will announce the reschedule date. At that time, your family will have an opportunity to request a refund if the new date does not work for you. Also, we are hoping to invite current fifth graders back to work the games so they don’t miss out on that opportunity. Thank you very much to the PTO for your great ideas, hard work and flexibility! One way to keep up-to-date on PTO happenings is to follow the “Quincy DUX” page on Facebook.

Quincy Update

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

Dear Quincy Families,

Sometimes we hold on to more hope than we recognize, no matter how hard we try to accept the inevitable. I knew in my mind what Governor Whitmer would be telling us on Thursday, but my heart apparently just couldn’t accept it until it was finalized. The idea of the school building being closed for the rest of the school year hit me harder than I expected it to and there were lots of tears among your Q-Crew. I imagine there were many tears in your house too. This will be hard and we will be SO glad to be back together physically in the fall, but we will get through it together. We absolutely will. Because even though the building is closed, school is not cancelled. We just need to work out alternative ways to stay healthy, to stay connected, and to help students continue to progress. In that order ♥.

Your students’ teachers are here for you and I am here for you, every step of the way. We are trying out new tools and working as a team to figure out a remote learning plan that takes into consideration that we are living through a time of acute crisis. The remote learning plans will begin the week of April 13th, so please take next week to relax and enjoy your family. Don’t worry about school at all. Hopefully, we will have some nice spring weather so we can enjoy the outdoors.

The easiest way to contact teachers or me is through email (aapsey@zps.org).

We want to know how you are doing. We would love hearing from you through this quick, one question survey. Just click this LINK to access it. The only purpose of the survey is to provide help to Quincy families where it is needed. We have your back!

The Q-Crew created something special for our students, please share this video with them:

I cannot stay away for a whole week, so I will be back with a Facebook LIVE read aloud on Wednesday, April 8th. Here is the Facebook LIVE read aloud of one of my all-time favorite books, Socks for Supper by Jack Kent.

A special message to fifth graders:  We are so sorry that you will not get to experience many of the fifth grade traditions. Please know that your teachers and I are brainstorming ways to make sure that you know how special you are to us and ways to give you some much needed closure on your elementary years. We love you and are heartbroken that many of you are heartbroken. We have your back, stay tuned!

Stay safe and enjoy each other. We love you all!!
