On Tuesday, May 29, 21st Century Cyber Charter School held the first Community Day at The Family Center of Gap in Gap, PA. About 50 students came out with their families to visit throughout the day. Our teachers worked remotely from this location during the day and had the opportunity to work with some of our amazing students in person. Our ‘satellite office’ was buzzing with teachers working in the Virtual Offices and students typing away at their keyboards.
While some students worked with our teachers in the ‘satellite office,’ other students participated in a variety of activities that teachers set up. Students could paint flowerpots and make tissue paper flowers, all with our school colors of course! Ms. Elder, Mr. Egan and some National Honors Society and National Junior Honors Society student volunteers ran an iPad station where students could create posters using the Phoster application and a short video using the PuppetPals application. There was also a pick-up kickball game that teachers and students participated in!
The day concluded with our first student-faculty basketball game. Mr. Herman refereed the game between 15 students and 11 faculty members. It was a close game but the students managed to beat the faculty with a final score of 45-44. Students, parents and faculty enjoyed cheering for both teams!
Thanks to everyone who came out to see us! We’re looking forward to the next Community Day!
