From the Desk of the Principal...
I hope this email finds you safe and well. I miss you all and your children so much everyday and pray that we will be back together very soon. At this most difficult time, it is a blessing to be part of our Saint Michael Catholic School family and to know that we are all here for one another.
In the School Office (and from home), we are ready to help you and your children in any way we can. We check telephone messages and emails and make every effort to reply to you promptly. Please know that we are all here for you to answer your questions and concerns.
Most importantly, since March 16th, our students have been able to continue active learning on a daily basis through Google classroom, online resources, daily group “chats”, instructional handouts and Edmodo classes with their teachers and friends. They have opportunities to sign in to “Zoom” to watch teaching videos, receive direct instruction, and share discussion and completed projects with their classmates. As a result, our students are not only meeting with success academically, but have even been able to complete art projects, practice music, and follow a fitness program. As we now learned that the building will be closed until at least April 30, we are all the more committed to actively teaching your children on a daily basis. As Principal, I am so grateful to my teachers and staff for providing for our students, not only academically, but socially, emotionally, and spiritually as well. That is our Mission as a Catholic School.
Please be assured that as any new information becomes available from the Diocese, the Governor, or the County, I will keep you completely informed. I ask that you join us in prayer that Jesus will keep us healthy and safe and that He will soon end this suffering in our country and our world.
