Good Morning Mount Greylock Families,
In whatever model we use during this school year, I hope to use a seven- period schedule (non-rotating) with clearly delineated time for direct instruction, integrated with opportunities and expectations for both synchronous and asynchronous learning. The general planning thought is students will receive approximately 3.5 to 4.5 hours of direct instruction per day, with remaining time dedicated for inquiry like learning.
The adjusted 2020-2021 academic calendar has been posted. Voted on July 30, 2020, this calendar may be amended as necessary due to updates provided by the Commissioner of Education. Make especial note of new first days for students.
The Mount Greylock Regional School is committed to providing the best educational experience for all families in the coming school year. Your answers to this survey will provide us with information that is vital to developing plans that will enable us to respond to the pandemic. We are currently developing three plans (In-Person, Remote, and Hybrid) for the upcoming school year that will be shared no later than August 10.
Things are starting to move forward with our reopening plans. Currently the pace is methodical and measured. It may seem like nothing is happening, but conversations have been many and the planning robust. Soon decisions will start being made and then plans will be put into action. I anticipate the tempo will steadily increase to the point that it may seem rushed if you were uninformed of the process. To that point, I want to bring everyone "into the know" now so we can ask the right questions, advocate for with one voice, and make our goals and messages clear.
From more than 1.5 million program entrants, each of the students is among the top 50,000 highest-scoring participants who will be recognized as either Semifinalists or Commended Students in the fall. Congratulations to these academically talented Mounties.
Hello Mount Greylock Rising 7th Grade Students and Families,
I'm excited to share an opportunity with you as you begin your transition into Mount Greylock.
Members of the Sophomore class, and Health / Peer Team teacher Ms. Leitt, developed a Pen Pal program called the Mountie Mates.
The Class of 2020 enjoyed a two-part hybrid graduation with a pre-graduation video of speeches and awards plus a slideshow of class members. Mount Greylock is grateful to Debby Dane and Willinet for producing this video. Coming soon will be an expanded version that that includes photos and music from graduation day. [video]
Mount Greylock has been working to re-establish a vital job shadowing program and other "real life" programming with the Berkshire County Regional Employment Board and the diligent work of Lisa Mendel, Jessica Casalinova and Beverly Maselli. While all the job shadow pairing could not take place once COVID-19 closed schools, we thought it would be interesting to share the variety of student interests and the commitments from myriad community volunteers who agreed to host students for a day.
