Students and Parents: These are challenging times and I wanted to give a brief reassurance that our teachers and staff are working to establish and deliver supplemental education resources for you. Beginning the week of March 30, expect weekly (or more) direct communication with your teacher or adviser. We want to ensure you don't lose that Cove academic achievement edge during the closure. All students will be provided with supplemental learning material and resources. More details will be made available next week and through your teacher/adviser. Despite the closure, Cove remains laser-focused on your education.
I was just watching OPB News Hour and they featured an artist playing a favorite song of the Middle School Band, “The Theme from D’vorak’s New World Symphony” played by Yo-Yo Ma on the Cello in a theme of Encouraging Songs of Comfort. In these uncertain times may you find hope and encouragement in the music you listen to: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/yo-yo-ma-on-encouraging-songs-of-comfort-amid-global-crisis
