Supporting EMS’s Remote Learning

The Apple Tree Fund has been instrumental in supporting remote learning at EMS, which includes new technology and additional remote learning faculty. 

“The decision to go remote for our first year at EMS was thoughtfully selected despite some concerns on socialization and too much screen time,” says the Song family. “At the start of the school year, our concerns were immediately alleviated by the attentive faculty members and the robust full-day curriculum that includes teacher lead sessions and learning sessions away from the computer. The Little School remote curriculum parallels the in-person curriculum and maintains the same pace. All the remote teachers do an excellent job of being present, engaged, and supportive. We do not worry that our child is missing anything from learning remotely in all the core and specialist subjects.”

EMS recently created a new position – Remote Learning Coordinator – to continually review and refine our remote track in Morrow House to best serve our remote learners. Patricia “Pat” Barry, our Associate Director of Admissions, will be serving in this capacity. 

By having a point person facilitating meaningful conversations and regularly checking in with our remote families and students, we hope to continue to provide our community with the best school experience possible. 

These impactful efforts would not be possible without your support toward our Apple Tree Fund!
