Dear Parents,

I miss seeing your children’s smiling faces each day at school!

Thank you for working with us to keep your children learning during the school closures. With the extended school closure in order to count our days as educational and not make them up, we need to provide educational opportunities for the children and track what we are doing. Thank you for your participation in our efforts. The system we had already put in place meets the Department of Education guidelines, so we will continue as planned. Please have your children work on their learning 1-2 hours a day on average. Do what works best for your family! Complete the work to the best of your child’s ability, but don’t stress over it!! Please contact your child’s teacher, Mrs. HB or myself with questions or concerns. We are here to help!

Facebook Live Morning Prayer

I am enjoying touching base with families each morning through our Facebook Live Prayer and Morning Announcements. I am on at 8:00 AM each morning. You don't have to have a Facebook page to watch. I will make the video streams public. Go to https://www.facebook.com/SPSCatholic/

I may not be exact on timing, so if I don't begin right at 8:00 AM, stay tuned for a few more minutes. The videos will remain posted so you can tune in later if you like to sleep in.

 

​Stay safe and healthy!

God bless you all!
