NORTH SHORE SCHOOLS ADAPT TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE QUALITY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THEIR STUDENTS. BY MITCH HURST

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

When news reports broke six weeks ago that the coronavirus was spreading in Washington state, Joy Hurd, head of school at Lake Forest Country Day School (LFCDS), plugged into his network of administrators from other private schools in Washington and across the country to mobilize a response. The goal was to be able

to make informed decisions about school closures and to determine how to transition to digital learning at his pre-K through 8th grade school if that was going to be necessary. Schools up and down the North Shore—both private and public—had to act quickly to adapt in order to continue providing quality learning opportunities for students during Governor Pritzger’s Stay at Home order. In addition to e-learning and online tools and resources, some schools are moving toward virtual classrooms

that replicate the actual classroom as much as possible. And school administrators find that communicating and educating parents on the process is just as important as getting the students acclimated. As Illinois was reporting its first cases, Hurd pulled his faculty together on March 11 for an all-day meeting to design what he calls “a pre-

The Academic Approach:

Helping students maintain academic progress by preventing academic learning loss and promoting social-emotional learning At Academic Approach, we’ve always been focused on the successful development of our students. While our students remain at home, our focus is on two important challenges our students face: their potential for academic learning loss and their need for social-emotional skills to cope with adversity.

How can we prevent academic learning loss during this time? Studies have shown that, during a typical summer, students lose as much as 30% of the previous school year’s learning – almost one month of school content. This year, with students unexpectedly transitioning to an online learning setting, many schools and families are wondering if they might see an even greater effect. To address this, a few successful tactics can reduce learning loss and help navigate the challenges teachers and students are currently facing. Research has shown that programs were most effective in reducing learning loss when incorporating high-quality instructional strategies, when students spent more time on task, and when students were engaged consistently throughout the summer. The same is likely true for the current time frame: with excellent instruction and consistent engagement, students can stay academically on track even while out of school.

How is Academic Approach addressing the challenge? We know that summer learning loss is more pronounced in the upper grades and more significant in math when compared to reading. We’re focused on how to keep our students academically prepared for the fall—both ACT and SAT preparation and in the core academic skills necessary to keep them on track in high school and college. Our instructors are prepared to lead students through deep dives into the core math academic skills that will support their progress when they return to the classroom and when they take college entrance exams. They are delivering engaging, personalized content to ensure that students feel more prepared for next year’s work.

Can Social-Emotional Learning Help Students While at Home? Persevering under challenging circumstances is not a matter of academic skills, however; it’s a matter of social-emotional skills. Social-emotional learning (SEL) programming in schools has been proven to improve social, learning, and mindset skills in students—but can SEL programming help students academically right now? Students with strong SEL skills (such as self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, and responsible decision-making) are more successful in many domains. Importantly, though, development

Words By: Matthew Pietrafetta, Ph.D., Founder & CEO of these social-emotional skills can also create more engaged learners. The University of Chicago Consortium for School Research hypothesized that certain SEL factors efficiently contribute to key academic behaviors: attendance in class, doing homework, organizing materials, participating and studying for class, and other engagement in instructional activities (Farrington, et al. 2012).

How is Academic Approach working with SEL programming? Academic Approach has partnered with the University of Chicago’s Urban Education Institute since 2016 to deliver their Undefeated Minds curriculum to high-need students. This curriculum equips students with stronger SEL skills through the development of a “resilience toolkit,” which helps them practice skills to manage challenging situations and maintain intrinsic motivation Prior research on the curriculum showed remarkable improvement in resilience and grit as well as a decrease in student anxiety. We believe this SEL-oriented instruction can also have broader impacts on student academic performance, increasing growth on college-readiness assessments like the ACT and SAT. More than ever, this work on resilience is relevant to all our students to help them succeed as they transition to learning at home.

We’re using our expertise in college readiness, college entrance exams, and SEL to support student academic progress and success in challenging times.

NEWS SCHOOL IS IN SESSION Cont. from PG 1 emptive response.” That meeting, held two days before students were heading out for a two-week spring break, proved instrumental in helping the school move all of its learning to a digital environment. Because of the student break, Hurd also had the good fortune of a two-week headstart to update infrastructure and systems to make the shift. “Before we even moved to remote learning we were able to learn from other schools about how they prepared for remote learning and what they learned from successes and missteps alike during the first few weeks of teaching in that mode,” says Hurd. “Even now I participate in multiple video calls and webinars every week with heads of independent schools in the region and from around the country.” Hurd notes that international schools in areas prone to natural disasters have been particularly helpful in sharing information because they have already done a lot of thinking and planning about their operations during a campus closure. LFCDS already had distance learning tools in place for its nearly 400 students. Faculty use Seesaw, a digital distance learning tool that integrates parents into the learning process. The school also has its own robust web portal and, like many organizations and companies, has significantly increased its use of the internet conferencing tool, Zoom. “Real time connection is the most important and valuable thing. Even before this we knew learning is a social activity,” Hurd says. “How do you build on that? Collaborations are important in building motivation to learn, and human connection is key to the whole thing.” According to Cindi Di lorio, head of school at Fusion Academy in Lake Forest, you can establish strong human connections online that facilitate quality learning. Fusion offers one-on-one instruction to an unconventional base of students who aren’t well-served by traditional public or private schools. Fusion’s students include elite athletes who participate in youth travel teams, many of whom have schedules that don’t align with a traditional school calendar. For these students and others, Fusion has an existing technology infrastructure that allows faculty to provide their one-on-one teaching virtually. Since this infrastructure was already in place, Fusion was able to transition to an all-virtual classroom environment with limited effort. “We just kept on doing what we’re doing, oneon-one, with no changes or drop in quality, aside from a few computer glitches at home.” Di lorio says. “Parents are reaching out to us and we’re telling them to breathe, to relax. We have better attendance than when we were in session.” One of the unique aspects of Fusion’s learning approach is that while students receive work assignments, they don’t take them home. The campus has a “Homework Cafe” that students use during designated hours to do the work they need on their own to complete classes. Di lorio notes that the school has been able to use technology platforms to take the “Homework Cafe” virtual. “Kids are still signing in to attend Homework Cafe, and we still have breakout rooms, with between 10 to 40 kids, like we did when they were in session,” says Di lorio. “The kids are still playing games. Everything they were doing at school can be done virtually. There’s a big difference between e-learning and virtual classrooms, and we’re trying to replicate the physical experience of the classroom as best we can.”

While most schools on the North Shore faced similar challenges in transitioning to an e-learning environment, Lake Forest Academy (LFA) started responding to the spread of the virus back in January. With more than 100 international boarding students, including students from China, Korea, and Vietnam, staff began tracking developments and in February started to formulate a response as events unfolded. “We had visitors coming to campus in January and we realized this was going to impact us even before there were cases in the United States,” says Assistant Head of School Chris Tennyson. “I have to give a tremendous amount of credit to the Lake County Department of Health who was advising us on what to do.” Many LFA students participate in school-sponsored trips during spring break—trips scheduled to, “They need direction and guidance.” The school is providing support for parents as among other places, France and Kenya—but those trips were canceled and the campus stayed open they adjust to having their children learn at home for students without alternative plans. It was and that’s resulted, Flemma says, in parents gaining during the spring break period, which started on a better understanding of how their children learn. March 13, that school administrators decided to “One of the things that’s been very important transition to online learning. The original plan is giving parents support. We already have a tightwas to conduct online classes for two weeks, but knit parent community so a lot of what we’re then the decision was made to extend that through doing is educating parents about the benefits of online learning and giving them resources,” says the rest of the year. Some international students are now in man- Flemma. “We’re helping them understand what dated quarantines after returning home and the good teaching looks like.” The impact of the pandemic has had a similar school is adjusting to offering learning online to students who are in far-flung time zones and have impact on North Shore public schools as well. varying degrees of WiFi access. Districts are responding aggressively to school “Our teachers are doing an amazing job being closures and transitioning to the digital environflexible. We have a great amount of economic ment. All Illinois public school districts are rediversity and some of our students don’t have quired to submit an e-learning plan to the Illinois access to WiFi full-time,” says Tennyson. “We are State Board of Education.

We’re are familiar to teachers and students and to help focused on care, curriculum, and community, and students plan their daily assignments. One of the big questions that school officials how we can use technology to bring people together.” and other education practitioners have is how the North Shore Country Day School (NSCDS) response to the pandemic from schools might has had to tackle the challenge of providing online change the way secondary education is delivered learning to students from elementary through in the future. Matthew Pietrafetta is the founder and CEO high school grades. A third grade student learns a lot differently than a high school senior, and of Academic Approach, a company that provides Tom Flemma, NSCDS head of school says the students with customized tutoring to help prepare school is coordinating closely with parents to them for the ACT and SAT tests. Just like schools, make sure younger students are continuing to Academic Approach, which works with individlearn. ual students and school districts around the “Synchronous learning is replicating the class- country, has shifted all of its tutoring services to room, and smaller kids don’t have the indepen- the online environment. dence to do that on their own,” Flemma says. “We shut down immediately following the first

school closings and are following the same recommendations. We had already been offering remote learning and we totally digitized our curriculum,” Pietrafetta says. “All of our paper tests and books are available for download, and with going to 100 percent online, we’re offering a 25 percent discount so families can stay with us.” What is really on Pietrafetta’s mind these days, though, are the ramifications of shifting learning completely to the virtual environment. Are we learning lessons that will revolutionize educational systems in the future? Is this a big social experiment? One of the big challenges for students during this time, Pietrafetta says, is the importance of social and emotional learning, which creates the motivation kids need to learn. It’s hard enough already for kids to get self-motivated to learn at school, but can they stay motivated while trying to learn at home? “It’s the interest that drives learning, and students are definitely being challenged to be more independent,” says Pietrafetta. “The external motivation for learning has been relaxed so what’s left? Personal choices and decision making.” Pietrafetta thinks one change this period of time might bring about is keeping school populations lower by cycling students in and out of buildings and shifting a significant portion of routine learning online. “I don’t think we’ll ever see school the same way,” he says. Hurd of LFCDS points out that one change could be faculty who were resistant to using elearning in the past becoming more accepting after experiencing it. “For a long time there were teachers who were lovers of technology and teachers who preferred to be analogue,” he says. “Crises always accelerate change, and once the unknown becomes the known it’ll be interesting to see what carries ahead.” What Di lorio of Fusion Academy sees on the horizon is students who might just be suffering from a bout of cabin fever. “I think our students will be socially hungry at the end of this,” she says. “They’ll want to rush back to school.” THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

COMMUNITY RELIEF THE LAKE COUNTY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION ESTABLISHES CRISIS RELIEF FUND. BY KEMMIE RYAN THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

As the nation continues to fight the battle against COVID-19, local nonprofit The Lake County Community Foundation (LCCF), has launched a new, permanent countywide resource—The Lake County Community Crisis Relief Fund. The fund is set to support critical needs during an emergency, immediately, and in the future. LCCF Executive Director Maggie Morales explains, “We anticipate the impact of COVID-19 will be felt in a myriad of ways beyond the next six months. Establishing this essential resource will not only provide our nonprofit partners with the funding they need to

respond to urgent needs that our Lake County residents are facing right now, but will also ensure that we can respond quickly and efficiently when crises emerge throughout the county well into the future.” Funds will be granted to those nonprofit health and human service organizations in good standing with the IRS that are addressing basic needs of Lake County residents during a community or countywide emergency. As the Foundation works quickly to build this critical fund, it recently received a generous $300,000 commitment from the Julian Grace Foundation and a $100,000 commitment from Horizon Therapeutics in support of the effort. Steve Sarowitz, president of the Julian Grace Foundation and chairman of Paylocity explained, “As a

resident of Lake County and someone who deeply cares about and understands the immense needs of the county, I’m pleased to support the LCCF Crisis Relief Fund with a leadership gift from our family foundation. What this crisis is teaching us is that we are one human family and that we are all in this together. Now is the time for those of us in Lake County who have been blessed to stand up for our neighbors who are in need.” The fund will be administered through LCCF with guidance from a core crisis response team comprised of representatives of LCCF, the Healthcare Foundation of Northern Lake County, the Lake County Health Department, Lake County Community Development Division, and community residents identified by our nonprofit partners. Timothy Walbert, chairman, president, and chief

executive officer of Horizon Therapeutics urged community members to also contribute to the fund, “We are proud to partner with LCCF to provide critical support to our local nonprofit agencies as they work to care for our neighbors throughout the county during this time of crisis. We hope that businesses and people throughout the county will join us in supporting this urgent need.” For more information or to donate to the Lake County Community Crisis Relief Fund please, visit lakecountycf. org. If you wish to make a gift by check, please make your check payable to:The Lake County Community Foundation, 114 S. Genesee, Suite 505, Waukegan, IL 60085 and please indicate “The Lake County Community Crisis Relief Fund” in the memo.

WELLNESS WALK GOES VIRTUAL CANCER WELLNESS CENTER GOES VIRTUAL WITH ANNUAL WELLNESS RUN/WALK. BY KEMMIE RYAN THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

In the age of social distancing, nonprofits are getting creative while fundraising this year. With many organizations cancelling or postponing their critical spring fundraisers for later, in-person events, some are turning to virtual events.

Cancer Wellness Center (CWC) in Northbrook originally planned to hold its annual Stepping Up to Wellness Run/Walk on April 26 at Independence Grove. However, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and after Governor Pritzker extended his Stay at Home Executive Order through the end of April, CWC decided to move its event to a virtual race with flexible timing. A virtual race allows supporters to register and participate from any location they choose. The self-

paced race can be completed anywhere—treadmill, track, or trail—until May 26. Participants can even start a virtual team to keep the momentum going. Supporters are still encouraged to practice the six-foot distancing protocol called on by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CWC’s annual event usually draws more than one thousand people, raising awareness and critical funds for the nonprofits’ free programs and services to directly improve the emotional and physical well-being

of people affected by cancer.The organization is hoping that just as many will participate this year despite the new format. CWC has continued to provide services, and even add on videoconferencing programs, during the COVID-19 crisis. Registration is $45 and includes a t-shirt, race bib, and finisher’s certificate. For more information or to register, visit p2p.onecause.com/cwcvirtualsteppingup2020/ home.

Please stay safe & shelter in place. We are all in this together. We are here for you!

FARMHOUSE CHEESE & CARAWAY SODA BREAD PUDDINGS CONSIDER THIS RECIPE A DOUBLE WHAMMY. NOT ONLY DO YOU END UP WITH A DREAMY, CHEESY BREAD PUDDING, BUT YOU ALSO GET THE RECIPE FOR AN EXCELLENT LOAF OF IRISH SODA BREAD! YIELD: Makes 8 servings ACTIVE TIME: 30 minutes TOTAL TIME: 2 hours 45 minutes Lay the puff pastry over the skillet for a pretty look. Use any brand; the weight may vary, but either way you’ll have enough to work with.

PUDDING INGREDIENTS: •3 ounces sharp white Cheddar cheese, coarsely grated (1 1/4 cups) •1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano •4 large eggs •2 1/2 cups whole milk SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: 8 (6-ounce) ramekins or a 2-quart shallow gratin or baking dish TO MAKE SODA BREAD: 1. Preheat oven to 375°F with rack in middle. 2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and caraway in a large bowl. Add buttermilk and butter. Stir just until dough is evenly moistened but still lumpy. 3. Transfer dough to a well-floured surface and turn dough to coat with flour. Gently knead with floured hands about eight times to form a soft but slightly less sticky dough. 4. Form into a domed six-inch round and put on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut a 1/2-inch-deep “X” across top of each loaf with a sharp knife. Using a small sieve, dust 1 tablespoon of additional flour over loaf. 5. Bake in middle of oven until golden brown and bottom sounds hollow when tapped, 35 to 40 minutes. Transfer loaf to a rack and cool completely. TO MAKE PUDDINGS: 1. Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Butter ramekins or baking dish. 2. Cut enough bread into 1-inch cubes to measure 3 3/4 cups (about half the loaf; reserve remaining bread for another use.) Divide bread among ramekins (or spread in larger baking dish). 3. Whisk together eggs, milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in cheese and spoon over bread in ramekins or baking dish. Let stand 10 minutes. 4. Put ramekins or baking dish in a larger baking pan and add enough hot water to come halfway up sides of ramekins or dish. 5. Bake until just set and a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. 6. Transfer ramekins or dish from hot water bath to a rack and cool 20 minutes before serving.

FEAR NOT former life, was an atheist, “a hardened atheist, because I researched atheism,” he clarifies. An English teacher at Wauconda High School and a counselor at Trinity International University in Deerfield guided Rodriguez to the path to pastorship. “I didn’t find faith until later in life,” says Rodriguez, who, on August 1, plans to join The Orchard Evangelical Free Church’s Arlington Heights campus, where he’ll be mentored by senior pastor Colin Smith. “I found faith, after returning to the Chicago area [following a three-year stint with the U.S. Army, in Seattle, Washington]. My English teacher had handed me a Bible. I read the New Testament, thinking I could disprove it; I couldn’t.” Among the Biblical passages that hit Rodriguez hard was John 14:6: “Jesus said to His disciples, ‘I am the way, the truth, the life.’ ” “The message of Easter, first and foremost, is love,” Rodriguez says. “Hope is also a big part of the message. Jesus’s resurrection was a victory over death. Death is all around us today, because of the pandemic, and that has generated fear. I work with teens at church. Some are angry, because of job loss or sensing they won’t be able to attend their high school graduation ceremony. Many are afraid of getting sick and dying. “But death,” he assures, “isn’t an end, isn’t a period; it’s a comma.” Rodriguez started as a literature major at T I U before his counselor suggested a shift to Biblical Studies. He did just that, graduating with high honors, and then he graduated with high honors at Knox Theological Seminary in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “I was a horrible student in high school,” admits Rodri-

Good thing Alex Rodriguez—the former Wauconda High School shortstop, not the former Major League Baseball shortstop—wasn’t a shy guy in high school. His outgoing personality forced his chemistry teacher to assign the youngster to another seat. And that led to bliss. “I was talking too much in class one day,” recalls Rodriguez, the second-year director of student ministries at North Suburban Evangelical Free Church in Deerfield. The chair change landed “A-Rod” (yes, he answers to that nickname, too) next to a girl named Margaret. They talked, mostly after class. They got to know each other. They dated. They got married. Rodriguez, 35, is putting his voice to good use today, as his loved ones and North Suburban Church parishioners seek a source of comfort amid the harrowing pandemic. Uncertainly, seemingly, reigns every waking hour. Uncertainty begets fear. “Fear,” Rodriguez says, “can be a good thing. It makes you aware. In this case, it makes you aware we are living in a broken world. Fear also brings you closer to God. God is in control of all things. “None of us,” he adds, “knows the mind of God. But it’s important to know His character. He loves. God is good and gracious. God is wise.” Rodriguez dearly misses daily face-to-face moments with North Suburban Church members ever since COVID-19 began to significantly alter lives and anchor most residents at home for at least 96.3 percent of each day. He won’t see those faces on Easter on April 12, much to his dismay; the church will Livestream its worship service at 10:30 a.m. “Our people here … they are loving and caring, and they have such a sense of community,” Rodriguez says. “You feel that as soon as you see them when you walk into any room. They show grace—extravagant grace. What I’m hearing them say to others [since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic] is, ‘Hey, who needs a meal?’ I also hear, ‘Hey, we love you, this is our family, and we’re praying for you.’ ” Easter messages abound worldwide, and they’re resonating profoundly for Christians this Holy Week. Rodriguez, in his

guez, a target of professional baseball scouts when he gobbled up grounders and ripped doubles for WHS Bulldogs teams. “Only baseball and my girlfriend mattered to me back then.” He’s reading two books this month: The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Remember Death: The Surprising Path to Living Hope, by Matthew McCullough.

But death isn’t an end, isn’t a period; it’s a comma.

Rodriguez could not have picked a better time than now to devour the latter. “Can we face death and find hope?” author Jen Pollock Michel writes in a book review. “According to Matt McCullough, yes. Remember Death rightly reorients us to the impermanence of this world and the brevity of our lives, witnessing to the paradox that grief is necessary for faith.” Alex and Margaret live in McHenry with their children, 16-year-old Arianna and 6-year-old Alex, and his stepdaughter, 12-year-old Angelina. Margaret works as a part-time clerk at a grocery store. “My wife,” Rodriguez says, “is working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.” An avid Chicago Cubs fan since the day he first turned a double play, Rodriguez pines for the start of the MLB season. Maybe it’ll happen in May. Probably later. Hope. Rodriguez owns scads of hope. He still throws a baseball around occasionally, still punishes baseballs in batting cages. The topic of his opportunity at The Orchard resurfaces. “The Lord opened a door for me,” Rodriguez says. “I’m thankful for that; will always be thankful for the chance to fine-tune and sharpen my commitment to serving others during a pastoral residency. But I’m also heartbroken, because I love all of my students and our families at North Suburban. God gave me the capacity to be useful as a preacher and a teacher at a special place. “It’s a privilege,” he adds, “to be God’s echo.” North Suburban Evangelical Free Church, 847945-4630, is located at 200 Lake Cook Road, Deerfield.
