Tips for Our Students

For All Students,

We understand the challenges of distance learning and want to support you to the best of our ability. Below are some tips for organizing your day so it is manageable. 
  1. Continue to treat each day as a regular school day. Get up each day as you would if you were going to school and follow the Letter Day and the Daily Class Schedule. The “Letter Day Schedule” is posted in OnCampus on the Assistant Principal’s Page and your Class Page and the “Daily Class Schedule” (periods and times) is in OnCampus under Resources>AMHS Information>Bell Schedule. Keeping your day structured as you would if you were physically in the building will help tremendously each day. 
  1. Make a to do list before you begin. Make time before “1st Period” to jot down what is due during a “class period”, what is due later in the day, and what is due later in the week. Be sure to take in to account the periods where you might need to be available for a video conference with your class or the time a group you are working with set aside to work on a group project together. While it may look like everything is due at the same time, jotting down a “To do” or “Due date’ list will help you sort things out. 
  1. Work in a space conducive to learning. Working at a desk or table is much more conducive to learning then sitting on your bed or the couch. The space should be as free from clutter and distractions as possible. Yes this includes putting away the phone, and Nintendo Switch for a while, but you will be less likely to get frustrated if you concentrate on what you need to be working on in the moment and save the phone and video games for later. 
  1. The teachers are on your side!!! This is new for them too and they understand there needs to be some flexibility. If you are feeling overwhelmed, if you have a question about a topic, concept, if you are experiencing a tech issue, etc. email your teacher so they know what you need.  
  1. Take advantage of your Study Hall periods. Need a break in the day? The Study Halls that you have scheduled are the perfect time to take a walk, do some stretching, make some art, read a few pages of a book you are not required to read, listen to music for a few minutes and be still.  
 
For Seniors and Parents

Since things are rapidly changing, please be sure you are logging in several times a day to check OneNote and onCampus.

Unfortunately, many colleges have cancelled their Accepted Students events, but are offering ‘virtual’ events and information for you.  Please check each school’s website to see how they are handling different issues.

As you have probably already heard the SAT Exam scheduled for Saturday, June 6th is cancelled. I know many of our juniors registered for this exam to make up for the March and May exams being cancelled. Albertus will be hosting the SAT on Saturday, August 29th. We are also in communication with the CollegeBoard about offering the SATs in September and October as well as the November 7th Exam which was already on the calendar. It is extremely important that you monitor the CollegeBoard site and any emails you receive from the CollegeBoard for all updated information. If you don’t have an account with the CollegeBoard yet, please go to the website and setup an account ASAP! Make sure you use an email you check regularly.

For Freshmen and Parents

Since things are rapidly changing, please be sure you are logging in several times a day to check OneNote and onCampus. Be sure to check your email a minimum of 3 times a day. This will ensure you are not missing assignments and changes that will be posted.

Welcome back everyone.

Hope all of you had a chance to relax and enjoy some well deserved time off.

It’s hard to believe we are in our 4th quarter and finishing out freshman year.

Throughout the 4th quarter we will be meeting with each class at your regular scheduled class time, as we did during the cycle before Easter break. We will send you an email to invite you to the class. We will be checking in to see how everyone is doing and will be posting assignments in OneNote for you to complete.

If you have any questions, please email us. Thank you.

Stay safe,
Mrs. Buckley
