Inspiring Independent Learners

At Primavera Online Elementary School, our incredible students are an essential part of the learning team. We encourage our learners to stay motivated and commit to their schoolwork. We empower our students to:

  • Complete their work independently. While parents may assist, students must have the leading role in finishing assignments.
  • Communicate with their teachers. We know learning can be challenging. Your teachers are here to guide you – don’t be afraid to reach out at any time.
  • Try his/her best on benchmark and state testing. These assessments are important and let our educators know exactly how to support you during the school year.

We understand every student, no matter their grade, come to us with a diverse background and skillset. As such, we encourage parents to foster good communication skills throughout the school year. Students and families can reach out via telephone or the Internet for guidance and progress monitoring. Regular communication will help motivate learners to stay on track and successful.

Primavera Elementary Parents

Communication

We know students in any environment do well when their parents are actively involved with the learning experience.

For this reason, we welcome and encourage on-going communication between parents and their child’s highly qualified teachers. When your child begins their journey with Primavera Online Elementary School, in partnership with Sequoia Choice, you will receive a phone call from one of our teachers, beginning an incredible partnership that will benefit your child.

Time with Your Child

Students in grades K-5 are growing and changing every day, embarking on an educational journey that challenges them in new ways. The majority, if not all, of their learning will take place at their home, which means parent involvement is essential for success.

Most students will spend around 4-5 hours diligently working each and every day. Along with guidance and support from their dedicated teachers, parents can expect to be directly involved with their child(ren) for as much as three hours per day. The learning process is exciting, and we are thrilled to partner with you in helping your child succeed.

ELEMENTARY TEACHERS

Teacher & Student Interaction

Our dedicated teachers are here to help your child succeed at every step in their journey. They are excited to cultivate positive relationships with each and every student, getting to know their strengths, weaknesses, and interests. Our passionate teachers greatly enjoy interacting with students in every capacity, including video sessions, email, phone calls, and more!

Teacher Feedback

Our teachers regularly communicate learner progress to students and their families. In addition to class assessments, your child will complete four benchmark tests throughout the year. With these assessments, teachers can accurately monitor learning progress and then share information. With this feedback, reflection, and goal setting, your child will succeed.

Field Trips

Our incredible teachers plan engaging field trips for their students throughout the year. The ability to learn and apply knowledge in a hands-on environment creates learning experiences that remain with students of life. Field trips are usually open to the entire families if the location allows it. We cherish this time for everyone to get together and explore the world in new ways!
