Where Are Your Teachers?
Where Are Your Teachers?

March 18, 2020

Dear Holy Rosary School Families,

We survived Day One of Sustained Learning. I am forever grateful for the prayers and positive energy from our HRS community. Thank you to our school parents and guardians who are figuring out the technology connections and, at the same time, keeping the children on a schedule. Thank you to our teachers who are becoming experts in technology and communication.

Governor Newsom's announcement that we should anticipate school closure through summer break was not comforting at all. And while there are no definitive orders, we need to be prepared. We will extend Long Term Dismissal (LTD) through Wednesday, April 8. We will begin our Easter Vacation on Holy Thursday, April 9 through Sunday, April 19, 2020.

On Holy Wednesday, April 8 we will spend our time with our students in prayer and reflection to prepare for the most important moment in the life of our Church.

Our teachers and staff will work together to continue Sustained Learning for our children.   Whatever it takes, we will do it.  Its important and your child's education matters.  

"and we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. " 
- 2 Corinthians 3:18   

 "Transformed ...with ever-increasing glory."  In other words, it's an ongoing process, but with the continual help of the Spirit, we're going to arrive at our goal - to be like Jesus!  The point is not to give up our journey.  Let's keep looking to Jesus and keep trusting that the Holy Spirit is doing God's work in us, making us more and more like Jesus each day.  (verseoftheday.com)  

This reflection on today's verse speaks about our current experience.  We are learning together, growing together and not giving up.  We will not give up.  #HRSstrong

Your homeroom teacher will send you a google survey for daily attendance.  Please verify your child's attendance during our Long Term Dismissal.

Holy Rosary School relies on tuition to meet the financial obligations of daily operations.  If you are experiencing financial hardship during the Shelter in Place official orders, please email Mrs. Fajardo at [email protected].  The office will have limited open hours, 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  We are available to take your call and respond to emails.  

Take time to review our Holy Rosary School Parent Student Handbook Acceptable Use Policy for Technology. 

We will be sending out a permission form on 3/19/2020 to include Video Conferencing with you and your student.  We must follow Safe Environment Guidelines.  Let's keep our students safe while they explore this whole new world.  Supervision is key in helping them make good choices and be successful.  They need our guidance and support.  If you are having technical issues, email your teacher.  We are here to help!

Estimadas familias de Holy Rosary School,

Sobrevivimos el primer día de aprendizaje sostenido. Estoy siempre agradecido por las oraciones y la energía positiva de nuestra comunidad de HRS. Gracias a los padres y tutores de nuestra escuela que están descubriendo las conexiones tecnológicas y, al mismo tiempo, mantienen a los niños en un horario. Gracias a nuestros maestros que se están convirtiendo en expertos en tecnología y comunicación.

El anuncio del gobernador Newsom de que deberíamos anticipar el cierre de la escuela durante las vacaciones de verano no fue nada reconfortante. Y si bien no hay órdenes definitivas, debemos estar preparados.   El despido a largo plazo (LTD) hasta el miércoles 8 de abril. Comenzaremos nuestras vacaciones de Pascua el jueves santo, 9 de abril hasta el domingo 19 de abril de 2020.

El miércoles santo, 8 de abril, pasaremos nuestro tiempo con nuestros estudiantes en oración y reflexión para prepararnos para el momento más importante en la vida de nuestra Iglesia.

Lo que esto significa es que nuestros maestros y el personal trabajarán juntos para continuar el aprendizaje sostenido para nuestros hijos. Lo que sea necesario, lo haremos. Es importante y la educación de su hijo es importante.

"y nosotros, que con rostros descubiertos todos reflejan la gloria del Señor, estamos siendo transformados a su semejanza con una gloria cada vez mayor, que viene del Señor, quien es el Espíritu".
- 2 Corintios 3:18

 "Transformado ... con una gloria cada vez mayor". En otras palabras, es un proceso continuo, pero con la ayuda continua del Espíritu, vamos a llegar a nuestra meta: ¡ser como Jesús! El punto no es renunciar a nuestro viaje. Sigamos mirando a Jesús y sigamos confiando en que el Espíritu Santo está haciendo la obra de Dios en nosotros, haciéndonos más y más como Jesús cada día.

Esta reflexión sobre el verso de hoy habla de nuestra experiencia actual. Estamos aprendiendo juntos, creciendo juntos y sin rendirnos. No nos rendiremos. #HRSstrong
