The new building at East of Market apartments in Frederick, Maryland, not only adds 49 units to the thriving community it also enhances and expands the amenity package offered to residents. The one and two-bedroom apartments include a washer and dryer, hardwood plank-style flooring, and more.

Residents already enjoy an expansive clubhouse with features suitable for those looking to relax or get active. In the warmer months, a large pool with a soaking area, water feature, and sun deck allows for enjoying the sunshine, and the free WiFi makes ‘working from the pool side’ an option. A conference room with PC workstations equipped with printing, scanning, and copying capabilities also adds to the convenience of working from the community. A fully-equipped fitness center provides exercise access, and the automated package center gives flexibility to receiving deliverables. Completing the clubhouse is a gourmet catering kitchen perfectly appointed for hosting events and entertaining guests.

Virtual Learning 2020-2021!

Frederick County Public Schools welcomes you all to the 2020-2021 school year!

Due to the current global pandemic the Board of Education has decided to open the 2020-2021 school year in a virtual only model. A sample schedule can be found here.

These models include:

  • Increase in Live Face-to-Face Instruction
  • Record and Share Google Meet Sessions
  • Small Group In-school Face-to-Face Instruction
  • Schoology Designated as the Course Management Platform
  • More Digital Resources, Activities and Assignments in Schoology
  • More Professional Learning for Teachers
  • Return to Normal Grading Practices
  • Weekly Instructional Planning

Here are some helpful tips that will get you ready for virtual learning this year!

KEEP A ROUTINE

First and foremost, keeping a routine is key for virtual learning. Since students are in their home environment, it can be difficult to feel focused. Have students prepare as if they are truly going to school — get up, put on an outfit, and eat breakfast. Then, they’ll be ready to learn virtually with their teachers! Although it isn’t the same as hopping on the school bus and stepping into the classroom, keeping a routine will keep them in the school mindset.

PICK A GOOD PLACE TO LEARN

Although most homes aren’t equipped to turn into classrooms, it’s important to make sure that the learning environment is geared to the success of your student! There are a few factors to consider when figuring out where they will be doing virtual school. If they’re in a place that is too isolated, they may not pay much attention since no one is watching them. Perhaps set up a place in the kitchen, but be conscious of their space throughout the day to limit distractions. Of course, you can ask them what space they prefer as well!

GATHER SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Although students will be doing schoolwork at home, they still need to be equipped with the right school supplies to succeed! Hopefully, teachers will provide students with a list of supplies they need. For notebooks, pencils, and more, look at places like Walmart, Dollar Tree, or Staples for low-cost supplies.

MAINTAIN SOCIAL INTERACTION (TO AN EXTENT)

A concern of many parents is how schooling from home will impact the mental health of children. Without the social interaction they receive from their classmates, it can take a toll on kids. If you’re comfortable, a great way to maintain social interaction is to have one or two friends who your child can “go to school with,” called a pod. This can allow for a simulated classroom setting if the students are in the same class. Group schooling is becoming a popular option for parents as it will allow kids to be around at least one other person for social purposes, while still following CDC guidelines.

HIRE A TUTOR

Another concern regarding schooling is that parents may have to go to work during the day and can’t help their children navigate online schooling. If parents are comfortable, hiring a person to guide your child throughout the school day is an option. Since teachers are guiding the class throughout the day, the “tutor” would ensure that students are on top of their work and logging online when they are supposed to for class. This could even just be in the form of a nanny, as it may just be helpful for students to have some guidance while parents are at work.

Although COVID-19 has completely transformed our lives, we are all in this together. Now, it’s important to provide our students with the tools that they need to succeed while doing school online. These tips for the upcoming school year will allow parents and students to feel prepared in tackling online schooling!

Back to School in Frederick County Maryland

It’s that time of the year again! Our kids go back to school soon and the preparation begins now. Frederick County Schools begin on September 3, 2019. Luckily for you, we have a couple of tips on how to get your kids ready and to start the 2019-2020 school year on the right foot!

School Supplies- Almost every year we have to restock on school supplies for our children. We all have the random drawer of abandoned school supplies at home, start there first to gather the supplies that your children might need for the new year. Stop by local stores that offer back to school specials on supplies. Stores like Office Depot, Staples, and Target offer specials for the entire month of August. To see the list of supplies for your Frederick County Schools click here.

School Clothing- Lets face it! Each year your kids grow out of their old clothes and need ones. All Maryland stores are offering Tax Free items during August 11-17. Restrictions apply on clothing purchases under $100 and backpacks for under $40. This is a great way to stock up on clothing for your kids on a budget! Have them tag along and try on some new outfits to get them motivated for the upcoming school year.

School Lunches- Whether you pack your kids lunches or they eat at school, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Make sure your kids get a big breakfast before they head to school each morning. On the go? Grab some breakfast bars or some fruit that will give them enough supplement for the morning!

Excited for back to school? Send us pictures of your kids on their big day back to school to be featured on East of Market’s Facebook page!
