Dear Coronado Community,

 Distance Learning is a learning experience. Coronado completed the school year delivering online curriculum and instruction. So many of our students finished strong and engaged in classroom lessons and assignments working hard day in and day out. Staying connected to the Coronado community was beneficial not only academically, but for their social and emotional welfare.

What positives came out of all this?

Creativity. Cooking assignment videos in Culinary Arts, capstone projects included a Minecraft animated tour of Coronado, artwork illustrations accompanied book reports, and a fabulous, weird and wacky episode of KUGR-TV titled “KORONA-TV” was student written, filmed, directed, edited and produced, all from the comfort of their individual homes. It’ll make you smile! https:// v=LVRqqNrMMNk&

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. Teachers tasked their students to utilize learning sites to find, evaluate, create and communicate information. Key Club organized online Homework Help meetings every Wednesday evening.

Communication and Collaboration. Teachers used a variety of platforms to instruct, provide opportunities, answer questions, and give feedback to students via D11 Email, Schoology, teacher websites, Webex (online video conferencing), and phone calls. Clubs and extracurricular groups posted daily Instagram encouragement and humor. Flexibility. Are you an early bird or night owl? As long as work was turned in on time no bell schedule was set unless a video meeting was planned.

Character and Leadership. Student Government devised a SPIRIT WEEK to encourage inclusion and a feeling of normalcy for the high school experience. MADD Red and Gold has been a Friday staple, and many students participated and rocked it! We’re looking forward to next year.

Coronado’s the place to be!
