I had my letter to you all written when I heard the Governor's announcement this morning. I was in a meeting with the teachers when we learned the news from Governor Whitmer that schools would be closed for the remainder of the school year. I can tell you that this news brought tears to our eyes and we began to mourn the loss of the hugs, smiles, and sweet voices that filled our days. I had a big agenda of things that I wanted to discuss, but after the news briefing, we prayed together and signed off for the day.
Your children's teachers have been working incredibly hard over the past few weeks to learn new technology for lesson delivery, creating instructional videos, activities, and meaningful projects. We never imagined how much more difficult remote teaching would be! I have never been prouder to be part of a school than I am today.
I am equally thankful for and proud of our parent partners! If it were not for your dedication to the Catholic education of your child(ren) we would not be successful. We recognize now more than ever what your role as the primary educator of your child looks like. So, as we turn the corner that leads us toward finishing our school year remotely, I have one important question to ask. How are we doing regarding the workload that has been placed in your laps?

As we move into Spring Break and Holy Week next week, let's take a rest from our new schedules and focus our attention on God and the season of Easter. He is Risen and is revealing his plan for us as we manage our current situations. We need to open our hearts and minds to hear His voice and be ready to follow Him through this storm. With Him, we will be alright!
Peace and Blessings,
