June 5, 2020
As we end this year, I have such mixed emotions. I have loved my time on Facebook with the families in the mornings. Selfishly, It has really kept me connected to the students and parents. I have missed seeing the children’s smiling faces and hearing their chatter and laughter in the hallways.
Students, parents and teachers have shown amazing tenacity, flexibility and perseverance throughout the school closing. The learning accomplished goes well beyond regular classroom skills, standards and benchmarks. Everyone has so much to be proud of!! SPS students, families, teachers and staff are the best!
Mrs. Tallman sent out a time capsule for the students. I hope they make time to fill those out because we are living in a historical and pivotal time. How wonderful for future generations to have first hand accounts of the year 2020 from their grandparents or great grandparents.
On our school website and on Facebook I have posted a video the faculty and staff put together. You can view it at https://www.stpaulcatholicschool.org/apps/video/
Report cards will be emailed on Wednesday. Each child’s report card will be emailed separately. That is how our system works, so I apologize in advance to our families who have multiple students in the school.
