Greetings! Enjoy our Saints News!
HEAD OF SCHOOL MUSINGS
Since late February, I’ve written six Head of School ‘special edition’ parent/student emails on COVID-19. I’d like to shift gears just a bit and share two practical things you might want to consider.

This semester, it has been a great joy for me to teach a Junior/Senior Theology class. This morning, my students and I wrapped up Lesson 5 from It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding unexpected strength when disappointments leave you shattered (#1 NY Times Bestselling Author Lysa Terkeurst). What’s amazing is we started this Bible Study even before COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. God’s sovereign timing for our study of ‘suffering’ is not lost on me or my students. Today’s topic was ‘When the Enemy Comes Against Us’ and there was at least one takeaway – Fear can either move us closer to God or draw us away. I left our Zoom discussion inspired by how my students are choosing to ‘find unexpected strength.’ I’d highly recommend the book and study.  

It’s also incredibly important for parents, and any adults for that matter, to take a moment and really try to feel and understand what it might be like to be a High School Senior. We would do well to simply listen, cry with, and feel with and for our Seniors. Teacher Chris Dier shares what’s on my heart…  

I am sad for you; truly, I am. I feel deeply for you; truly, I do. It makes my heart hurt as I write. But if there is any group that can plow through this in creative ways, it is your group [The VCHS Class of 2020]. There is no pandemic strong enough to silence you or dent the passion of your generation. Keep your head up and keep fighting. Our country needs you because you provide hope for our future. This year may not be what you envisioned, but I’m eager to see what you do with it.

Along with our Seniors, we should all ‘keep our heads up and keep fighting.’ A Heavenly Father is here for us and will provide ‘unexpected strength’ as we face each and every challenge before us.

Important Communication from AP: 
As schools and communities navigate the unprecedented challenges posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the health and safety of educators and students are the AP Program’s top priorities. Here’s how AP is supporting schools:
  • AP is providing free remote learning resources
  • AP is investing in the development of a new at-home testing option.
  • Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. 

The full exam schedule (with 2 test date options), specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available by April 3. AP will also unlock any relevant free-response questions in AP Classroom for digital use so students can access all practice questions of the type that will appear on the exam. A full refund will be available for students that decide not to take AP exam(s). The deadline for a full refund has not been determined.
