Principal's Newsletter March 2020
As we reflect on how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted our society, we begin to realize the little things that we took for granted; simple things like waking up and going to school, sharing breakfast in the cafe with friends, waiting in Patriot Plaza for the bell to ring, and proudly representing our school in activities. Our world changed as we knew it and it happened so fast that it was difficult to comprehend. As we complete our 3rd week of remote learning, we are stronger than we were yesterday and we are seeing signs of progression daily. While things are still unsettled and there remains more questions than answers, there is a bit more clarity as we are becoming more determined, resilient, and steadfast. Looking on the bright side, our technology skills have enhanced and we are spending more time at home with family. Let's appreciate what we do have and be grateful...because things most certainly could be worse.
We cannot forget to acknowledge our March student and school accomplishments, and there are many as you will see in this newsletter. As a school community, we continue to Stand Together. Rise Together. Remember that our Easter vacation starts on Monday, April 6th, with remote learning resuming on Monday, April 20th. We hope that this much needed break will give our students and faculty time to rest and reinvigorate. May God keep you and your families safe and may your faith be strengthened during this unprecedented time.
Wishing you a blessed Holy Week and Happy Easter!
