March 23, 2020

Dear Holy Rosary Families,

Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we navigate through this brave new world in education and the ever-changing pandemic.
The teachers have been in constant communication with each other, doing their absolute best to continue the education of the students of Holy Rosary.
This landing spot is currently in development.   With so much information coming at you at once, I believe it is important to make this current situation we are in easier to navigate for you and your student.  We recognize every family is experiencing challenges and opportunities of varied degrees. We want to take that into consideration as we plan for the next phase of Sustained Learning.
In the next few days, you will be receiving a survey to address and answer any questions or concerns you have regarding the Sustained Learning curriculum and assignments, as well as how things are going at home. 
We understand this is an adjustment for all of us, but would find your insights, positive reinforcement, and feedback helpful in continuing the Sustained Learning curriculum.
On a more personal note, I just want to share that I am walking this journey with you.  Our family is a menagerie of generations in one house, figuring out homework, attendance, strategizing what to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, rationing out the snacks, going outside but keep your distance, staying inside and practice our invisibility skills, managing too much screentime and now we have to go ZOOM.  
I find myself living CARITAS style at my house and the Waste Wizard awarding points!   May you be surrounded by Christ's love as we go through this together.
 In Partnership,
 Mrs. Fely Fajardo
Holy Rosary Sustained Learning

Daily Attendance:
Please submit daily by 10AM for each child. Your response will include your email address and a timestamp.

 "The three great practices of Lent - prayer, fasting, and almsgiving - are three things we can all do.  As you do these three things, pray to draw closer to the Lord as the center of your life and the reason you do everything." - Lenten Gospel Reflections, Word on Fire.
