Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Team Sports
It’s become clear that the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t going to end anytime soon. This means that we are going to have to figure out how to live and raise our children when seemingly every action we take carries some risk.

Team sports and extracurricular activities offer opportunities for exercise, which is crucial for health, and also for socialization and learning how to be part of a community.

We want to hear your feedback so we can keep improving our extra curricular activities and logistics. Please take a moment to do this quick survey and let us know your thoughts (your answers will be anonymous).

Virtual Learning Readiness
In Virtual learning is going strong and training is being offered to students as needed. We hope that our COVID19 prevention allows us to maintain our brick and mortar, but we also need to be prepared to move to virtual learning in case of emergency closure. Our brick and mortar students in upper school have been exploring the virtual learning platforms and learning technology skills they will need. Our lower school will begin the process soon.
Here are a few things brick & mortar parents can do to help with the preparation:
  • Download the itslearning app for tablet and Ipad users.
  • Save your child's login information for Itslearning, Office 365 and other class online platforms.
  • Begin exploring student tech training videos with your child.
  • Determine the best to communicate with teachers.

Have a great week!
