Imagine Bella had to adjust from the same ceremonies as in years past for Kindergarten and 6th grade promotion, but nothing will stop us from celebrating our students! The school held a car parade for the students with the whole Imagine Bella team standing outside to cheer on the students. Each staff member made personalized signs for each student and received their certificates from their teachers at the end of the parade. Cleveland police and fire department also participated in the parade with lights and sirens to shout out the students. Check out some of the great photos from our event. We were lucky with lots of sunshine!
During distance learning, our teachers found ways to mix it up and keep it fun. Stay in touch with us all summer on Class Dojo!
Distance learning is a new challenge for everyone, but our staff at Imagine Bella is doing an exceptional job of keeping our students engaged and learning! Our staff utilizes the Class Dojo app to communicate with students and parents. Teachers our using Class Dojo to post videos, lessons, pictures, and assignments for students during our Distance Learning. A great way to do engage students on Class Dojo is to start their day with a Morning Meeting. Morning Meeting gives the students an opportunity to do a journal writing, activity to encourage movement, and an interactive question to share their thoughts. We also use Class Dojo to shout out students for doing outstanding work during the virtual school day!
To encourage our students to engage in distance learning, we did a virtual Spirit Week for the week of April 20th. The students were asked to submit pictures each day to show their participation in Spirit Week. It is so great to see our students smiling faces while having fun at home, we miss them all very much! Monday: Miss You Monday, Tuesday: Tuesday Tales, Wednesday: Wednesday Workspace, Thursday: Thoughtful Thursday, Friday: Family Fun Friday
Check out some photos of special moments from the beginning of March!
Teachers are posting instruction and many more resources to Class Dojo. Printed packets of student work are available at the school during pickup and dropoff hours. Connect with your teacher on ClassDojo for more details!
Imagine Bella was able to hold our first spring dance in early March. The dance was held as a fundraiser for future student activities and field trips. Staff transformed the cafeteria into our dance hall and students had fun dressing up for the fun!
