Wednesday!

By // March 25, 2020

Hopefully you’ve all had a chance to take a look at Block Three classes and connect with your advisor. If not, please be in touch!

This is the last week of Block Two. Time for Evaluations! These tend to go through better on a computer than on phones, so if you have access to a computer, go for that.

HERE’S THE LINK to Class Evaluations. Please complete one for each class you participated in. These are anonymous (and short.) Your feedback helps us improve! It really matters. Thanks for taking the time.

Self Evals

Lots of work at the end of a block. Please find the time to complete this survey THIS WEEK, before the next block begins and this is all a distant memory.

We ask students to complete a self-eval survey at the end of each block. We use it to track your progress over time. We believe that a LightHouse education supports students to develop a strong growth mindset and brighter world view. We believe that we are teaching you to become the leader of your own life and to see the world as a place of opportunity where you have the skills and confidence to achieve your own goals.

This self eval helps us track whether or not that growth is happening. Your feedback helps us see where you might need more support, and it helps us see whether or not we are doing our jobs well.  Part of the form asks you to give feedback on your advisor relationship so we can know how and where to focus and improve.

The self eval should take about 10-15 minutes. THANK YOU for making the time. It really does matter.

Block Three classes are up on the website

If you haven’t seen them yet, or if you find the google calendar challenging, you can see them on the website HERE.

Talk to your advisor about which classes you would like to take. We will start online on March 30, and hope to move back onsite ASAP.
In addition to group classes, we have several tutors available. Tyler, Clancy, Chan, and Lidiana will be happy for the hours during this slow-down, so help us keep them busy!

Friday

Ashley and Carlos are hosting a Google Hangout room at 1:00pm to go on a Virtual Tour of Walt Disney World and Universal Studios!  https://meet.google.com/zom-pmbe-knd   We will “walk” around to see what it looks like, ride rollercoasters, check out Harry Potter world, and more!    After our virtual tour, we will be doing a letter writing activity! It’s really important to stay connected, so we are going to try to send out some snail mail. Join in!

Resource of the Day

Audible.com is offering free memberships to students. Audio books are AMAZING! Take a look: https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

Wish List

LightHouse is giving computers to students who need them. We still have a few to give away, but our extended community is large and there is lots of need. If you have a functioning laptop that you can let go of please let us know and we will deliver it to a young person who needs it.

In addition, we need keyboards and mice for some of the computers that we have otherwise ready to go. Please be in touch if you have any you could donate.

We also added some to our Amazon Wish List if you’d like to take a look.  THANK YOU!
