Week 5 of Lent!


I am starting up our weekly newsletter for you. We will discuss at our Zoom when you want to receive it--Friday PM or Monday AM. I will not be sending it on the weekend as I truly want you to savor that time to unplug.

I have been blown away and in awe of your creativity, patience and tech savviness. Truly. I knew you were an amazing team, but I never could have imagined how much more we could grow in such a short time. We are FAR ahead of some of the other stuff I am seeing out there. You are keeping our community strong during this time of so much unknown. You are bringing joy directly to our families homes. You are ministering.

Remember to keep Jesus in that boat with you.

Simply put. Thank you. THANK YOU.

Please pay careful attention to this newsletter.

Letter from Archbishop Gustavo to YOU

Reminders and Updates

  • I am keeping this simple because I want your focus this week to be finding your google classroom/zoom room groove and chasing down anyone you haven't connected with yet.

  • By this Monday evening, please follow up via email (if you haven't already) with any parent of students that have not joined your google classroom. If you have already emailed and gotten no reply, please call, make sure you are blocking your number.

  • Reminder Team Zoom Tuesday and Friday 12PM to 1PM. We will be ending at 1PM sharp from now on. We will transition to once a week if we need to after this week. The link to join is below!

  • If you forgot to, please finalize your grades in RenWeb for Quarter 3 by Monday night. We will be working on getting Report Cards out on Tuesday AM. Completely forgot to do this last week. We had more pressing issues.

  • By Monday, April 6, plan on having a weekly newsletter out to your families as you do during the school year. Please cc me, Regina and Valerie. Great place to put all reminders in one place. If you want to use smore, like I do for the Dragon Roar, let me know and I'll add you. I pay for the school account and can add you. It's a drag and drop thing. I love it.

  • I am available Monday to Friday to Zoom with you or Phone call from 7:45AM to 5PM if you need any classroom support. If there is an emergency, call anytime. Here to HELP!!
