After the first week of AHAOnline, an all-student survey was sent out to the Academy of Holy Angels student body. The large majority of students responded, and there was equal representation between the four grade levels.
- I am able to access my assignments, 99% yes
- I am able to access resources to do assignments, 97% yes
- I am able to get help from my counselor, 96% yes
- I am able to turn in assignments via myAHA, 99% yes
- I am able to get help from my teacher, 94% yes
- I have turned in my daily attendance ticket, 91% yes
- I read the Daily Bulletin, 80% yes
Should students and teachers have to continue with AHAOnline past the state-wide school closure of May 4th, AHA is well-prepared to do so. Upon receiving the news of the long-term school closure, an AHA teacher reflected, "Despite the somber circumstance, I think this opportunity for online school will really push us as teachers to expand our teaching in a totally different way, and learning a new skill like this is always something that excites me. A new challenge can certainly build a whole new foundation as an educator!" Over the coming days, the administration and technology team is looking at ways to creatively connect and build community with students and teachers.
Principal Foley said in a recent email to the student body, "I know that you have been working hard. Your extraordinary dedication and hardwork during this time is recognized and applauded."
Thank you to the entire school community for continuing to work together and keep a positive AHA spirit during this time. Go STARS!
