New Whiteboard added to our Outdoor Classroom

We love our outdoor classroom but we needed a whiteboard. What did our students do? In math/STEM class, the middle school students used the engineering design process to create whiteboard designs. Our parishioner, Mr. Steve Bromander, met with some of our students to go over the final plan. We can now use the whiteboard all year long.

Thank you to Mr. Bromander, Mrs Barbatsis, Mrs. Krantz and our middle school students.

We love it.

Congratulations to Mr. Melius. He was nominated for the CSCOE Saintly Service Award

Vaccination of School Age Children in Catholic Schools

From the Archdiocese of Saint Paul & Minneapolis:

“As with all vaccines, Catholic schools of the Archdiocese recognize that vaccination of school-age children is a decision of parents and guardians and is not mandated by Catholic schools. Parents and guardians make health care decisions for their children. An explanation of the Church’s position can be found here. As with all healthcare decisions, parents and guardians of students in our Catholic schools should carefully weigh the risks and benefits in consultation with their healthcare provider.

We encourage you to meet with your child’s primary care provider in an effort to make an informed decision in light of your child’s particular health history, risks, and benefits associated with the COVID- 19 vaccine. While Catholic schools have not been a significant source of transmission of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, our school remains vigilant and focused on ensuring our students receive the essential service of an in-person education and a place of encounter with Jesus Christ.”

From: Office of the Chancellor for Civil Affairs and Offices for the Mission of Catholic Education
