    New Information

    1. Middle School Schedule Clarity – Attached to this email is a color coded, hopefully easier to understand MS daily schedule. 

    2. Classroom Chats – Please continue to remind your students that the chat is limited to academic focused work.  There should be no gifs, emojis, off topic conversation, videos or polls.  For those who are really struggling to not engage in the chat, we may need to contact parents directly.  Chats are for students only, not parents please.

    3. 5th Grade (possibly 4th Grade) Elementary Instrumental Music (EIM) - We are excited to offer Elementary Instrumental Music (EIM) to your 5th Grade Student! My name is Eric Stevens, and I’ll be your EIM teacher this year. The program is for 5th graders and for 4th graders if space is available. Instruments we teach are Violin, Cello, Flute, Clarinet, Trumpet, and Trombone.
    EIM is an opt-in program that students and families choose to participate in. Classes are scheduled during the day, and students leave their regular classrooms to go to EIM one day per week.
    How do I enroll my child for EIM?   You have 2 options:
    1. PREFERRED method: Online signup. Use the enrollment link below.
    2. ALTERNATIVE method: PDF. Email me, Nathaniel Oxford, at nloxford@seattleschools.org , and I will send you the pdf document to fill out and return.
    DUE DATE: Friday, October 2, 2020
    Please submit your registration by this date. Late registrations may not be accepted.
    Please know, the enrollment process for EIM is a lottery model to support equitable access within the boundaries of the program. This means, if more students submit enrollment forms than spaces allow, there is a chance a student might not be able to do the program.
    I will get back to all families that enrolled to let you know if your child will be in EIM this year and what instrument they will play.    Sincerely, Eric Stevens aka Steve-O

We are organizing smaller groups of families that can more easily connect and communicate with each other with the support of a Lead volunteer. To be a part of this program, be sure to opt-in to sharing your contact info with other families when your child’s teacher or parent volunteer asks. Read more details about the program here.
