Weekly Principal Update
May 20th, 2020

May 20th, 2020


Dear School Families,

We are nearing the end of the month of May. About 1/2 of our classrooms are cleaned out for the Summer and our building is already in the process of being cleaned. It is hard to say what the Fall will look like for all of us. We are really hoping that we will strike some type of happy medium so that we are able to be together in some capacity.

There are many plans to be made and much guidance being awaited for many, many folks trying to get their businesses, schools, and other operations up and running. The only constant in the next three months will be the patience needed by us all to get things up and running in this new normal. 

One thing is for sure, as I work with GRACE, the parish, and our school personnel to formulate new procedures and operating expectations, I will certainly share the information with all of you. I will begin doing more recorded videos so that all families can get the information directly from me.

VIRTUAL ROSARY
Mrs. Lamm, Ms. Hehir, and Ms. Canales worked together to make this very touching virtual rosary a reality. The final product is just beautiful. Thank you all for participating and jumping in with your sincere videos. Our teachers will be using the video in their lessons this week and then I will take it and make it accessible virtually next week to all of you.

STUDENT MATERIAL PICKUP/SBS MATERIAL DROPOFF 
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
We have scheduled a detailed plan for you to come to school and pick up your child's belongings. At this same time, please plan to bring back anything that belongs to school: library books, Chromebooks/Chargers, textbooks, Before/After Care Cards, etc. PLEASE read this letter for specifics about this event. ENGLISH  SPANISH

LAST DAYS OF SCHOOL
The school will remain in session until the official last day of school, June 4th, however, June 1st-4th will be fun community-building activities rather than graded assignments in order to give our teachers time to prepare report cards. We will do our best to give students the fun "Last Week" feel that they normally get when in school.


REPORT CARDS, CERTIFICATES, DIPLOMAS, ETC.
Any official and important end of the year paperwork will be mailed home at the end of the first week of June. We believe that this will include Yearbooks as well.

SPECIAL AWARDS - JUNE 4th, 2020
There will be a virtual awards presentation sent out on the afternoon of Thursday, June 4th, 2020. Time and Link to come. This will include our Summer Birthdays as well!

GRACE END OF YEAR VIRTUAL MASS
The GRACE Principals are coordinating an End of Year Mass, much like the one we did a few weeks back. This will be our last Mass of the school year together. This will take place on May 27th at 10:00 am. SBS is taking care of all of the music for this mass. Please join us!

GROCERIES AND CLEANING SUPPLIES
A BIG thank you to Mr. Zaragoza and Mrs. DeCleene who have coordinated a HUGE effort to bring multiple school families their groceries and cleaning supplies each week. Additionally, we have had hundreds of dollars in private donations given to this effort.
THANK YOU so much for your generosity. People in the larger community are hearing what we have been doing and are sending unsolicited donations to us for these efforts. It is humbling.

Be the Light!
