We've arrived at Easter Week, the most holy week of the church year. Normally we would have our Agape in school families followed by our Living Stations with the 8th grade class. Obviously we cannot do these but we will remember our Catholic faith and Holy Week in school families. By Wednesday of this week your child will receive an invitation to a School Family Hangout. The invitation will come through your child's school email. The older students can find the link easily but the younger ones will need your help getting to their school email. If you do not receive the link by Wednesday at 3 pm, please let me know.
TK students will have their own prayer service with their teachers. The teacher will send the link to you.
On Thursday morning at 9 am your child should click on the link and they will be connected with their school family. After the service is completed, Easter break officially begins. We do need to take attendance on Thursday so please make sure that the older students still check in with their teacher at 8:15 and that you send the attendance email in for the younger ones.
Tomorrow I will be sending a list of ideas for keeping your children engaged during Easter break.
Have a good day,
Monday 4/62020 Morning Greeting
Dear St. Philip the Apostle School Parents,
Our school community may be physically apart throughout our remote learning experience, but we are blessed to be stronger than ever. The St. Philip the Apostle School Board has met regularly throughout this time, and remains focused on the success of our school.
We continue to be thankful for the incredible work done by our Principal Jennifer Ramirez and all administration and faculty. Our school had a very rapid pivot to remote learning from in-school instruction, and the efforts to teach and support our children during this challenging time have been inspiring. As a parent, I remain amazed by how quickly our teachers and administration were able to create schedules, teach curriculum, and make my children feel constantly engaged.
Our School Board is also thankful to you - our parents! Learning has always been a shared effort, but you have certainly stepped up and done so much to optimize your children’s learning experience over these weeks: maintaining a solid Wifi signal, getting out the right gear for spirit days, making signs for social media posts, dishing out daily hot lunch, supervising recess, lunch and PE, dragging kids out of bed to make the long commute to their desks (or the kitchen table), and especially creating a warm homebound learning environment ~ Thank you! We appreciate your attention to your children’s remote learning and your support of our teachers.
As we proceed through this time of economic turmoil, we did not furlough any teachers or staff. We rely entirely on tuition collection to make this possible. However, we continue looking for ways to support our families with tuition support and assistance. As a community, we are here to help. Please know that the goal of the School Board is to not lose any students due to financial challenges. If your family encounters a need for tuition assistance, please contact Jennifer soon. All inquiries are confidential. The School Board remains focused on ways to fulfill all tuition assistance requests. We are here to support and keep our community together.
I pray that your families are all safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.
We stand strong as a community ~ apart yet together as one.
School Board President
