Student Aids Covid Patients
as New York EMT

 

 

 

 

 

When senior pre-med student Marielis George received the email in March announcing La Sierra University’s transition online due to the advancing pandemic, she faced a daunting reality. George, an Angwin Hall resident and native New Yorker with just months remaining in her degree program, had the option of staying. But she felt a responsibility to her parents and also to the university to leave campus and fly back East to reach Yonkers, 20 miles outside of New York City. Once home, she felt called to serve on the front lines of the pandemic and in spite of the dangers and her fears, she signed up to work as an EMT with an ambulance company in her home town.

Teacher Bitmoji Keeps Students
Company During Homework Time

 

 

 

This Spring, Max, a first grader at Glendale Adventist Academy, did his math homework with a printed Bitmoji (a personalized, expressive cartoon avatar) of his teacher Mrs. Alderete. When she met with her students every week on Google Classroom, Mrs. Alderete gave them a cutout of herself as a way to pretend she was there with them. Students told their principal that they knew it was not her, but they were happy to have the likeness of her with them while they worked! This is one of the small but caring ways that teachers connected with their students while facilitating distance learning.

Summit Christian Academy
Hosts Outdoor Graduation

 

 

 

 

This year, Summit Christian Academy (SCA) in Salt Lake City, Utah, had their first ever outdoor graduation, and it was a success! Graduates sat in cars with their families in the school parking lot where they listened on Zoom to the graduation speaker. Then each student was called up to stand with teachers (wearing masks and keeping hand sanitizer handy) as each graduate came up to shake hands and receive their diploma and a small graduation gift. Afterwards, all cars slowly paraded around the parking lot to wave, honk, and congratulate graduates. “It was a gift be able to see the shining pride on their faces and the faces of their parents as we finally finished one of the most unique school years in history,” said Sarah Abraham, SCA administrative assistant.
