Physically Apart, Socially Connected: How Archer is Embracing Remote Learning

Archer students and teachers are using remote learning as an opportunity to stay connected despite being physically apart. From grade-level workouts to interactive Zoom lessons, Archer girls have plenty to look forward to while staying home due to COVID-10 containment efforts.
Remote learning began on Monday, March 16. Teachers modified their lessons to accommodate learning via Zoom. Ms. Deming began her 7th Grade English orientation on Tuesday by asking students to share three words to describe how they were feeling before diving into their Ethical Iceberg Essay projects. "The purpose of us connecting is so that we can be with each other and be there for each other," Ms. Deming said to the class. Keeping in mind the increased screen time from Archer moving online, Fitness and Wellness Department instructors organized high-energy workouts for their students to get moving. Department Chair Coach Ferri invited faculty and staff to participate in her high-intensity workouts with her 7th grade students.

Archer parents are also finding calm and connection through weekly online meetings hosted by Head of School Elizabeth English and other school leaders.
