Summer Learning Resources from KICS
Congratulations on finishing the 2019-2020 school year! Due to the impact of COVID-19, this summer will be longer than usual for KICS students. As a school, we are excited to provide the opportunity for students to continue on their own customized learning paths throughout the summer. However, first of all, we want to encourage students and families to play and to find rest. Though we have had a lot of time at home, we have still been hard at work. Jesus reminds us in Matthew 11:29 that in him we find true rest, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
With this in mind, I’m excited to share two tools that are now available for KICS students and families – RightNow Media and Exact Path.
As a school, we are always looking for ways to serve and support our families and to encourage the integration of faith with learning and living. One helpful resource we've found is called RightNow Media. It's essentially the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" because you will have instant access to thousands of faith-based videos for students, kids, families, parents, and working professionals — all aimed at helping you continue to grow and to find rest in Jesus Christ. You can view these videos directly from your phone, tablet, or computer. We believe that RightNow Media will be a tool to serve you as you live out your faith at home, at work, and in your communities.
You have received an official email with an invitation to get FREE access to this library as a gift from KICS. Once you've filled out the information, you will have more than 20,000 video Bible studies, leadership videos, conference sessions, cartoons, worship videos, and resources on parenting, marriage, discipleship, and more, at your fingertips. We pray that RightNow Media will be a blessing for you and your family!
In addition to RightNow Media, over the long summer KICS families who have paid their re-enrollment fee will have the opportunity for their children to continue strengthening their skills in Math, Reading, and Language Arts using the customized learning platform, Exact Path, and/or other tools based on their grade level. Exact Path uses the students’ previous assessment results to create a targeted learning path for each student. So, students will be able to strengthen areas of weakness and extend their learning in areas where they are already excelling. When your child is ready to engage in the learning process afresh, these digital tools and suggestions can be helpful to provide structure to the long summer months and to help your child prepare for the next grade level. These tools should not require much parent support once each student is familiar with how to use them. Please check your email inbox in the days ahead to find more details including your child’s login information and any additional grade-specific information.
If you have not paid your re-enrollment fee and would like to have access to these summer learning opportunities, please contact the KICS finance department – firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com; 0789451336.
As we look ahead to the summer, we wanted to say how thankful we are for all of you. Students, parents, and staff, this has been a challenging season, but with God’s help we have completed another year of learning and we trust that each of us has grown in amazing ways. Please check your inbox for the next steps in accessing these summer learning resources. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
