From the Principal's Desk
As we wrap up our third week of distance learning, the faculty,staff, and I have taken some time to look at our program, identify our strengths and weaknesses, and start planning for the next phase after Easter break. We have been working tirelessly behind the scenes, working towards mastery in platforms such as Zoom, Google Classroom and SeeSaw. We have recognized that having devices and internet service does not guarantee the successful deployment of work and real time communications. We have experienced power outages, too many users globally trying to access sites which have made live streaming difficult and flawed, the need to continue to put safeguards in place such as passwords being assigned to online class sessions to limit access, and word from families that devices and hotspots were working on overload sometimes and needed a "cooling off" period. Students in the intermediate grades and middle school, as well as their parents and teachers, have found that the camera app, Notes app, and scan apps have become invaluable, as they are able to take a picture of their work and email it to the teacher when dropping off paperwork at the school is not feasible.
All of these challenges have been met with countless acts of persistence and resiliency; my faculty and I are so very thankful for the perseverance and patience that all of you have brought to this new situation.
As we plan to take a much anticipated break from school during this Easter season, may we all take time to reflect on the sacrifice that Jesus made for us and to give thanks for the family, friends and blessings that have been afforded to us all.
Yours In Christ,
