Bixby Schools Holds Car Parade for Students and Teachers at West Campus

Despite Distance Learning, Students Get to See Their Teachers

HELLO STUDENTS: Students and teachers wave to each other at Bixby’s West Elementary School.

Due to a rise on COVID-19 cases, Bixby Public Schools went into distance learning recently. Superintendent Rob Miller made the announcement on Facebook saying the decision was made after COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the community.
Due to being out of the classrooms, many students missed their teachers, and likewise, many of the teachers missed their students. With Bixby Schools transitioning to distance learning in the fall semester, the West Campus held a car parade in December so the students could see their teachers in person.
A multitude of cars filled with students took part in the event as they drove by and waved to their teachers.
Merriam Webster defines distance learning as, “a method of study where teachers and students do not meet in a classroom but use the Internet, e-mail, mail, etc., to have classes.”
Simply put, distance learning is when students are separated from teachers and peers. This means that students learn remotely and do not have face-to-face learning with instructors or other students.
