The campus is closed but Gordon is open
Since April 1st, students, parents and faculty have been coming together in Gordon's Online Learning Community.
It's a coordinated effort on many fronts, working to keep everyone connected and learning during this crisis.
Students from age three to fourteen have been learning in online classes that include daily Zoom meetings with peers and teachers, offline lessons and activities, and projects that include arts, music and movement as well as literacy, math and science. More on this work on Gordon's blog
Extracurricular activities have rebooted online, as well: Middle School athletics and the musical are underway, free after school activities are drawing in younger students, and the community is coming together for events like the Open Mic. More on after school programs
Parents, caregivers and extended family members have been essential parts of this community. Through surveys, emails, and weekly meetings with teachers and administrators, their input has been crucial, and they have been critical parts of online learning and community-building this spring, fueling #Stayathome Soccer School, the readaloud library and appreciations and activities that have happened across the state.
Meanwhile, members of the Gordon family have been finding dozens of ways to respond to their local and global communities, with the compassion and creativity that the Gordon family brings to everything they do. More on Gordon's impact on the larger community during this crisis
