A Letter from the Principal

Dear Moore Families, 

The faculty and staff of J.E.J. Moore Middle School want to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year!  We are very excited to return to teaching the best students.  To maximize instruction for all students, the teachers will be making some adjustments to their classrooms.  

Starting on Monday, September 14, 2020, the teams will combine in-person students from 4 classrooms into 3 classrooms.  Then, each teacher will teach 3 in-person classes and 1 virtual class each day.  As a reminder, teachers rotate class to class.  This new schedule will still have in-person students receiving core instruction and allow virtual students to access each core class each daily.  The daily virtual instruction can be either synchronous (live lessons) or asynchronous (taped lessons).  In most cases, this new schedule will give virtual students access to 11 hours per week of synchronous instruction on top of the asynchronous already being delivered.  

On Friday, September 11, 2020, during their virtual instructional time, each team will share with the students the schedule that will start on September 14 for virtual students.We appreciate everyone’s patience, flexibility, and teamwork as we make adjustments to best support our students.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school.

Thank you,

Bobby Knowles

Principal

Access Google Classroom with your Xbox or your Playstation

  

 

You might be wondering how you or your students can access Google Classroom; especially in one computer household or for students without devices. Well, accessing Classroom is easier than you think!

Google Classroom App

I feel like the easiest way to access Google Classroom without a computer is by using the Classroom App on a phone or a tablet. Click here for the app on the App Store and here for Google Play  Once the app has been downloaded to a phone or tablet, students login with their school district accounts and will find an interface that feels very similar to the one they find at school.

They can click on any assignment, interact with the content, watch any videos you post (did you know that you can record videos directly into Classroom by using the camera on your phone while you are using the app?), and even create Slides and Docs right on their phones! I have known quite a few students that claim they can type an entire paper on their phone. Now is their time to shine! Teachers can even grade assignments and give feedback directly to students with the app. It is really a great tool to have at your fingertips.

Xbox and Playstation

Classroom can be opened on Xbox and Playstation. There isn’t an app that the students can add to their consoles. Instead, they are going to have to use the built-in browsers that come on the two devices. On Xbox, it is Microsoft Edge. On Playstation, it is the “www” browser. Your students will probably know how to find the browsers on their consoles, but if not, each one has a search function they can access on the home screen.

Once the browser has been opened:

  1. Type in classroom.google.com in the URL bar.
  2. A prompt for a Google account will appear.
  3. Type in your school district email and password – it doesn’t end in google.com and that is ok!
  4. The Classroom home screen will open up.

If students have a keyboard they can plug in, they will have a much easier time of navigation. Otherwise, they will have to use their controllers to click on the classroom tiles, open up assignments and type. It isn't easy with a controller, but at least your child could access the content.

As we all struggle with ways to meet the needs of our learners, I just thought it would be valuable to know that there are multiple options for students as they access the content in Google Classroom

Military Life Counseling 

Due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, MFLCs will now be able to
temporarily provide telehealth services to military students. These services
include telephonic and video non-medical counseling in areas where
face-to-face support is restricted due to COVID-19.  We are pleased to
announce this temporary capability to provide continuity of care in your
local schools.   

 The model of MFLC and telehealth is noted below.
Support for Adults:

*         Telephonic and video non-medical counseling 

 Support for Children and Youth: 

*         Individual video non-medical counseling sessions for minors age 13
to 17 (parent or guardian must be available at the start of each video
session to give parental consent and provide line of sight requirements)

*         Family video non-medical counseling for minors 6 to 12 years of
age (parent or guardian must attend each session). 
Below are the names and phone numbers of the Prince George County Schools
MFLCs and their designated schools. They can be contacted at these phone
numbers by parents to establish a virtual counseling appointment.
