Class participation, & engagement:
Students are strongly encouraged to participate and engage on their own during the instructional time. Parents’ help in setting up the student’s instructional environment and making it distraction free is appreciated. However, Parents should not prompt or assist students when teachers are engaged with their students. This may impact teacher’s instructional methods and student evaluation process.
Assembly: School will start with a virtual assembly at 9:45 AM. After assembly, students are required to join their individual classroom sessions conducted by their respective teachers.
Parents, teachers and students should have calendar invites already for the assembly session. Teachers & students are requested to join the assembly through the live stream link available in their sactamilacademy.org’s calendar.
Upcoming class assembly performance:

Oct 31 2021: Grade 6, section C
Nov 7 2021: Grade 5, section A
Attendance: Attendance is a key component of our grading system as you all should know. Attendance will be marked by the attendance officer during the live classroom session (weekly Sunday 10-11:30 AM). Arriving after 10.15 am or leaving before 11.15 am will be marked as Tardy. Don’t forget that 100% attendance for the academic year gets a special recognition at the end of the year.

If not, please reach out to their teachers and/or principal(s). For security reasons, all students & teachers must join or access the content and meeting ONLY through the authorized sactamilacademy.org Google workspace.
