A Message from Mrs. Kilroy
March 30 - April 3, 2020
Everyday next week there will be a Facebook Post on the SCS CoOp Page where you can share your family's creativity and participation in the day's activity.
As always, participation in Virtual Spirit Week is optional, but we hope it adds a little fun to your days and provides a much-needed sense of community for our SCS students!

We miss you and can't wait to see your spirit Shining like Heaven on Earth!
Acceptable Usage Policy PK3-7th Grade:

Our Virtual Classrooms continue to evolve each day! I am grateful to our teachers for working so hard to quickly adapt. This week you should have noticed instructional videos launch in your child's virtual classroom. Once we receive all Acceptable Usage Policy Forms back, we will be able to open the opportunity for live streaming in your child's classroom. Please make sure to complete the form linked below by tomorrow - Friday, March 27.
Third Quarter Report Cards Sent via Email:

Although Fr. Tim and I would ordinarily visit each classroom to hand deliver the report cards, during this time we have decided to email third quarter report cards. Make sure to check your email box to view your child's report card. Honor Roll will also be published in our Gator Bite Newsletter as well as Facebook! I am proud of all of our student's hard work over the last three quarters. Over the last two week's I have worked to join all of the class groups through the various apps we are using and I am enjoying watching our students learn and grow in our virtual school. Keep up the good work Gators!

On-Site Office Hours Closed and Return Date:

Due to the Governor's "stay-at-home" ruling, our on-site school office hours are closed. However, all faculty and staff are available via email Monday-Friday during regular school hours 8:30-3:30. If you would prefer to phone conference, please let us know and we will work together to make it happen. Please do not hesitate to reach out like you would normally do should you need anything from us. Although, we are currently operating as a virtual school, we are still here for you and ready to assist in anyway that we can. As of now, our scheduled return date still remains as Tuesday, April 14th. I can not wait to see everyone back at school!
In an effort to keep us all safe & healthy - physically & spiritually - St. Catherine has created online resource hubs.

Good news! Students enrolled in AR (all students in grades 1 & 2 and AR Club Members in grades 3 - 7) can now have access to quizzing at home on books they have read. Students should log in to AR in the same way they do at school - please click below to visit site.
This  site seems to work best in Chrome, Safari or Firefox. This site also allows access to magazine articles that students can select, read and quiz on. They are not awarded points for quizzing on these articles, but it's good reading/comprehension practice. These articles are primarily for grades 3-7 (not 1st or 2nd grade). 

Students can access these articles (after logging in) from the page when they generally type in the title of their book. Just below the title box, click on an area of interest (animals, culture, education, etc. ). From that point, a list of articles will appear. Check the ATOS BL (book level) of the article to select an appropriate reading level. Click on "read and take quiz."  The search for appropriate reading level articles can be refined by using "filter search" located next to the title box -- just enter the student's reading/grade level (such as 3.5 to 4.5) to help narrow down the choices.

If I can help in any way, contact me at cengler@scsgators.org.
Keep reading and stay well!
