Pinkerton officials pleased with launch of Blizzard Bag program
There were a few glitches during the launch of the program on Feb. 5, but the participation rate exceeded expectations, said Dean of Faculty Beverly Lannan.
“It worked out well,” Lannan said. “Teachers were able to get the lesson up, and students were able to access it from home through the Internet.”
“I think teachers are really being creative in the lessons that they are coming up with to relate to what they are trying to convey in class,” Lannan said.
Most parents gave a positive response to a quick survey on last week’s Blizzard Bag Day, Lannan said. There were some, however, that said they thought the length of assignments given to their children was a little too long, Lannan said.
Lannan said administrators have talked to faculty about keeping the length of assignments to the typical duration of a class period, or about 20 to 30 minutes.
