Remote Learning Starting 1/3

December 31, 2021

Dear Parents,

The recent rise in positive Covid-19 cases is very concerning. Out of caution, our school will be going to remote learning starting Monday, January 3. We will return to in person learning on Tuesday, January 18. Should your child appear to be sick, take them to the doctor right away. I thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

                                                                                                                                                          Philip Heide

亲爱的家长,
 
最近新冠病毒的病例数量不断上升,这情况让人担忧。出于谨慎考虑,我们学校决定1月3日(周一)起,改为线上网络授课。我们会在1月18日(周二)恢复在校上课。如果您孩子有出现症状,请立刻带他们就医。感谢您的理解和合作!

Good Morning,

With the Governor’s announcement of a state of emergency, we will be closed today for in person learning. Please sign into Google Classroom for Zoom lessons and material. Once again, there will be no in person learning today, Tuesday October 26, 2021. Stay safe.

Mr. Heide

First Friday

This past Friday was very special for everyone. As tradition, we had our First Friday Mass. After Mass, we began Adoration. This is a special time where we sit quietly in devotion to Jesus who is present under the appearance of the consecrated host. Adoration is scheduled throughout the day on First Friday. Each grade has their own time and opportunity to spend in devotion to Jesus. We concluded our First Friday with Benediction. Benediction is a devotional ceremony in which the priest blesses us with Eucharist. It was a beautiful ceremony for all. As always, we invite you to celebrate Mass, Adoration, and Benediction with us on First Friday. We look forward to our next First Friday in November!
