Orientation Day and New Atmosphere Site!

Dear Parents,

The day began with children smiling as they entered school, lots of thoughtful questions, the occasional silliness and a desire for learning. This would not be a surprise for any of us if this was a normal day, but it was the Orientation Day of our new Akiba Atmosphere where the smiles happened online.

Tomorrow begins our first “regular” day of Akiba Atmosphere and we want to thank all of our hard working teachers and staff who made this day possible. Today all of us learned a lot about how to continue making this experience one of meaningful and engaging learning. Thank you also to our parents who have been so appreciative and supportive of the work that has been done, and thank you to all our students who came today ready to learn! We look forward to going live with classes tomorrow.

We also want to inform you of a very important update.

We have just published the official Akiba Atmosphere website! Click here to see it. It can also be accessed from our regular school site (big Akiba Atmosphere logo on the upper right of the site).

This website is mostly for the parents so we can keep you updated, share resources and support you. We will be adding to it in the days and weeks to come. All communications will be hosted there (including this one) and we will send you at a maximum a daily email with all communication updates and site updates (i.e. new resources). We will also post communication updates from the site on Facebook. We hope this is a helpful tool and please be sure to email us with any suggestions for the site that will be helpful.

Thank you again and we wish all your children a wonderful day of learning tomorrow!
