Dear St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School Community,
I hope this weekly message finds you all doing well. As I’m sure you already suspect, I am unable to share any good news about when we might return to campus. I will continue to communicate with you regularly on each Thursday. However, there will be no update next Thursday as we will be closed for Easter Break as scheduled. There will be no classes on April 9 –April 13. Please note, we continue to follow our published school calendar
While we have enjoyed many successes in our transition to remote learning, we recognize that this is a learning process for everyone, and we want to continue to grow and improve. In the next few days, you will receive a short survey, and your feedback will guide us as we expand on our strengths and work to make the experience even better for all involved. We will survey all parents and faculty as well as students in grades 3-12. The survey should take you less than 5 minutes to complete. Thank you in advance for your time and thoughtful input.
Finally, while we may all be a little fatigued at this point, I want to share some moments that made me smile this week. Despite social distancing causing us to miss some important events, our teachers and students are creatively making memories and sustaining connections.
- When you are a four-year-old, it is especially hard to spend your days without your friends. The joy was evident on the faces of our JK students as they held their first Zoom gathering this week! There were lots of smiles and laughter, and the children can’t wait to see their friends again next week.
