From the Principal's Desk
At this writing we will have completed our second week of Distance Learning. We realize that everything going on in the workplace and the world around us continues to make this a challenging time. Please know the faculty and staff have been working diligently to assist every child with their learning, taking calls, emails, and texts along with Zoom conference lessons and Google Classrooms and SeeSaw.
I encourage you to keep your child's teacher(s) aware of things that may be taking place in the home that may affect his/her ability to complete the work as assigned. These would be the sorts of things we would know if the children were with us in school, and then could work with you to accommodate and assist you.
We continue to pray for everyone and again want to thank all of you who are working in healthcare, safety and emergency responder fields to serve your community. Others have jobs that fall into the essential professions categories and are also trying to meet the needs of the community as well as their own families.
Our plan is to send home next week's assignments on Monday. We hope to have a special treat on Monday, April 6th, which is a half day for students, so keep checking your emails next week for more information. Please hang in there one more week, and get work in for March 16th-April 3rd, so we can all enjoy a well-deserved Easter Break, April 7th-15th. Progress reports will be emailed to you on April 20th.
Please take time to look at the adjusted school calendar in a link on this update and on our school website.
Have a restful weekend and please be safe.
Yours In Christ,
Rita M. Klenk
