Enrollment for new school year begins today

Enrollment for new school year begins today

first_imgAn estimated two million learners in the region from preschool to senior high school are expected to enroll for the new school year, said Belleza, pointing out that DepEd Region 6 started pre-enrollment in February and March. * online class – but only possible if students have the needed gadgets such as laptop or desktop computer, cellphone, and strong internet connection For distance learning, DepEd-6 has three strategies. These are the following: * radio- or television-based instruction Today is also the start of the teachers’ rendering of service for the new school year, said Belleza. Belleza said t is up to schools to determine which teaching strategies would be suitable for their students. Teachers, however, need not be physically present in schools. They can work from home, she stressed. She also did not discount the possibility of homeschooling; the students just stay at home and their parents would teach them based on the curriculum and learning materials set by the school. DepEd-6 is exploring the possibility of combining the above-mentioned modalities for a “blended” learning experience of students, said Belleza. ILOILO City – The 30-day enrollment period for school year 2020-2021 begins today. They have the option to enroll online via email and through social media applications such as Facebook and Viber, among other internet-based communications applications, said Belleza. Physical distancing and the wearing of facemask would be required, said Belleza, and hand-washing stations would be made available in schools. Also, she said, it is ultimately up to the parents to decide if they want to enroll their children to school or not./PNcenter_img According to Department of Education (DepEd) Western Visayas information officer Lea Belleza, parents  and students need not go to schools for the enrollment due to the continued threat posed by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The new school year opens on Aug. 24. Schools can use radio, television and the internet so as to avoid face-to-face teaching which is still deemed risky at this time, said Briones. Belleza said face-to-face learning may be allowed in areas considered as “low-risk” for COVID-1 9 transmission but health safety measures would be strictly observed such as regular disinfection of schools, frequent hand-washing, wearing of facemask, observing physical distancing, and checking of body temperature. Belleza assured parents that in case the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases allows the physical presence of students in schools, the schools would be disinfecting their premises first to ensure that students are safe and protected from COVID-19. * modular – printed or electronic materials would be issued for students to study; this includes worksheets, too, that students must answer and other learning materials that teachers would deem necessary for the students Parents and students may also call or text the teachers, she added. In a televised meeting of the task force on Thursday night last week, Education secretary Leonor Briones said “blended” methods would be applied to ensure the continued learning of students amid the COVID-19 crisis. The enrollment this month, she said, “will validate kon tuod gid man nga ining mga bata ma-eskwela subong nga school year.” In Western Visayas, Belleza said, DepEd-6 already started preparing for various “learning delivery modalities”. These are face-to-face learning, distance learning, blended learning, and homeschooling. “DepEd strictly maintains the ‘no collection policy’.

Explosive rushing attack leads Cicero-North Syracuse to Section III Class AA repeat

Explosive rushing attack leads Cicero-North Syracuse to Section III Class AA repeat

first_imgWith eight minutes left in warmups, as Cicero-North Syracuse marched in a straight, two-by-two line toward the locker room, parents and fans cheered and raised signs. One read, “They Can’t Stop What They Can’t Catch: #2.”West Genesee couldn’t catch Jeremiah Willis with 3:29 left in the first half. As he turned the corner and raced up the left sideline, he too knew that he couldn’t be stopped. He had a chance. A chance for not only a 77-yard touchdown run, but also a chance to provide a spark for the Cicero-North Syracuse offense that had been lacking early in the game.As he passed cameras around the 15-yard line, he stuck out his left hand and pointed. He wouldn’t be stopped. And for the rest of the game, neither would the Northstars.“Don’t stop. Don’t stop at all. That’s why I was thinking, don’t stop,” Willis said, “because if I stop, the team stops.”His touchdown run extended the C-NS lead to 20-0, and the Northstars used three additional rushing touchdowns in the second half, cruising in dominating fashion and defeating West Genesee 40-0 in the Carrier Dome on Saturday night. The win gave C-NS the Section III Class AA championship for the second-straight season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Words can’t describe it,” quarterback Conner Hayes said. “You would think doing it a second time, it would feel the same, but it doesn’t. It feels better every time.”The drive after Willis’ touchdown, linebacker Josh Lawrence sacked West Genesee quarterback Tyler Cook twice. Combined with a delay of game penalty, the Wildcats found themselves with a third-and-38. They punted, and as the ball soared down the field, any hopes of a comeback traveled with it. The Wildcats had held their own for the first 22 minutes, but the “athletes on the field,” as Hayes said, began to take over.C-NS opened the scoring on a fourth-and-seven midway through the first quarter. Hayes took the snap and rolled to his right. As two West Genesee defenders rushed towards him, looking for the sack, fingers on the C-NS sideline began pointing down the field.A streaking Shy’rel Broadwater emerged behind two West Genesee defenders who bit on the scramble, and Hayes hit him in stride. The senior ran untouched into the end zone for a 44-yard score.With 9:49 left in the second quarter, Hayes faked a handoff to Jaiquawn McGriff, rolled to his left, and found a slanting Geloff for a 10-yard touchdown.These two touchdown passes helped overshadow a half where Hayes was intercepted twice by Christian Rossi, including his first pass of the game.“We started out a little slow,” Hayes said. “I threw that interception, but we came right back and just kept playing C-NS ball.”Hayes finished with 144 yards on 12-of-17 passing with two interceptions. But on Saturday, the Northstars’ offense didn’t need him to do anything extraordinary. The running backs had him covered.Early in the third quarter, McGriff took a handoff and sprinted toward the C-NS sideline. At the 20-yard line, when a Wildcats defender closed in, he swung his right arm over and juked to his right, and continued into the end zone for a 43-yard touchdown run that increased the Northstars’ lead to 27-0. Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 3, 2018 at 10:41 pm Contact Andrew: arcrane@syr.edu | @CraneAndrew Comments As the game’s MVP ran back toward the C-NS sideline, one of his coaches met him halfway, yelling “Hey, Hey, Hey, What? What? What? What?” in shock at the running back’s move.Minutes later he did it again, although this time without the Madden-esque juke. He took a handoff and ran up the gut into the end zone, causing “It’s All Over” chants to ring from the stands.“These kids are dialed in,” head coach Dave Kline said. “They have fun playing the game. You watch them? They have fun.”As the clock ticked down during the last plays of the game, with C-NS’s lead now 40-0 after a 43-yard run by Da-Ron Brown, Willis began to jump. He took off his helmet and began to run around the C-NS sideline pumping up himself, his teammates and the crowd.But as he lined up with the rest of the Northstars at midfield to shake hands with the Wildcats after the game, Kline, at the front of the line, motioned toward Willis.The senior needed to put his helmet back on. He had to stick to the C-NS way. The same way that led them into the state semifinals last season. The same way that allowed them to finish 9-0 in regular season play. And the same way they used Saturday night to advance and play Elmira.“One of our goals was the section championship,” Hayes said after the game. “But that’s not our final goal, I’ll tell you that.”last_img read more

Ronaldo scores as Juventus brush aside Leverkusen

first_imgThe Germans showed little to threaten the hosts, with Lucas Alario shooting over on three minutes with what would be their best chance of the game.The breakthrough came for Juventus when Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah failed to head clear Juan Cuadrado’s long ball for Higuain, with the Argentine pouncing to drill home after 17 minutes.The 31-year-old Higuain, back in Turin after loan spells at AC Milan and Chelsea, had a chance for a second on 38 minutes but was denied by Leverkusen goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky.Juventus piled on the pressure after the break as Ronaldo tried unsuccessfully to pull off an overhead kick in the 55th minute.Ronaldo then sent Higuain in behind, but although the Portuguese failed to connect with his teammate’s return pass, Bernardeschi was lurking to provide the finishing touch just after an hour.Juventus almost had a third with Hradecky failing to control the ball and almost turning it into his own net before grappling to save on the line.But the Finnish international did well to deny Ronaldo in front of goal after a Higuain charge down the flank.Welsh international Aaron Ramsey was introduced in place of Bernardeschi with Dybala replacing Higuain for the closing stages.And in the dying minutes, substitute Rodrigo Bentancur picked out Dybala who slid the ball through for Ronaldo, allowing the 34-year-old to equal Real Madrid great Raul’s record of scoring against 33 different sides in the Champions League.“It was an important match, after the draw in Madrid we had to win to get closer to the qualification,” said Higuain.“Now we head to Sunday, because another battle awaits us,” added the Argentine of next weekend’s Serie A clash with leaders Inter Milan.Share on: WhatsApp Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal in this season’s Champions League, sealing a 3-0 win for Juventus over Bayer Leverkusen in their Group D game in Turin on Tuesday.Turin, Italy | AFP | Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal in this season’s Champions League, sealing a 3-0 win for Juventus over Bayer Leverkusen in their Group D game in Turin on Tuesday.Ronaldo blasted in the third goal in the 89th minute to extend his record to 127 strikes in the competition to add to Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi’s earlier efforts.Juventus move top of their section, level on four points with Atletico Madrid, who defeated Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0 in Russia.The Italian champions had been held 2-2 by the Spaniards at the Wanda Metropolitano in their opener.“We had a good match against a team who love possession and are not easy to deal with,” said Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri.“They took a lot of energy out of us in the first half. After the break, they slowed down a little and we took control.”Leverkusen face an uphill battle after their shock 2-1 defeat at home against Lokomotiv Moscow and are rooted to the foot of the table.“It was a clear defeat,” said Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz. “We played well in the first half even if we didn’t have chances, and then we made the mistake which led to the first goal.“It’s the difference between a team who has experience in the Champions League and one that is beginning its journey at this level.”Juventus next host Lokomotiv and Leverkusen travel to Atletico on October 22.– Higuain back –Sarri opted for Higuain and Bernardeschi up front alongside five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo.Leverkusen were struggling from the outset after losing captain Lars Bender in the warm-up to a thigh problem, with defender Mitchell Weiser stepping in.last_img read more
