  • Is all the schoolwork completed online?

    The amount of schoolwork completed virtually depends on the student's grade level. In general, elementary school students mostly complete offline work, with opportunities to use manipulatives and complete other hands-on activities.

  • How available are teachers for students who may need extra help?

    Posted by:

    All Oakshire Elementary School teachers are dedicated to helping each student succeed. For example, students will complete a diagnostic assessment to evaluate strengths and weaknesses, and better get to know the student’s learning style. By doing this, teachers can identify gaps in a child’s knowledge or skills and help fill them. Teachers also personalize the lessons to fit each student.

  • How can I help and support my student with his or her virtual learning?

    Posted by:

    The foundation of parental engagement comes from the parents’ ability to facilitate communication and nurture close and trusting relationships with their students. Microsoft Teams provides students with great flexibility, but with that flexibility comes responsibility. Even though some students are very self-motivated, parents need to encourage this and work with students to learn to be accountable without a teacher looking over their shoulders. Have open and honest conversations about how your student is doing in the course, and if she is struggling, encourage her to reach out to the teacher.

  • How do I help my child feel connected with his or her teacher?

    Posted by:

    Many parents worry that when students take classes online, they lose their interactions with an actual teacher, but within Microsoft Teams, the opposite is true. While the teacher does not stand in front of a classroom, he or she is actively engaging with students via emails, group chats, forums, or discussion boards. Many students are too shy or embarrassed to raise their hands in a traditional classroom, but the virtual classroom allows students to ask questions anytime throughout the lesson or assignment, and get a quick response without thinking about how they appear in front of their peers.

  • Do students need to be technically strong to be successful in virtual school?

    Posted by:

    Virtual school does not require students to be tech-savvy right from the beginning. The Microsoft Teams platform provides a lot of tools and resources to help and guide the student academically. Students will need to do hands-on practice to know the utility of each tool and resource. In this process of knowing more about the tools, the student automatically becomes tech-savvy.
