Remote Learning Day 50

Remote Learning Day 50

Greetings, ARCS Families!

We are on Day 50 of remote learning and we are beginning our last week of school!!!   Hoping that you and your children are enjoying the blessings of this beautiful day!

Our virtual Graduation liturgy and ceremony and diploma pick-up went very well on Saturday.  Our graduates are ready to begin their high school years and  we wish them Godspeed as they embark upon this new journey.  We will certainly miss their presence with us next year at ARCS.

Over the weekend, I got to “visit” 4A in Flipgrid.  They were learning about fractions and how to determine a fractional part using M & M’s.  It was fun to see them use the M & M’s to determine the denominator and the numerator.  Everyone had a different number of M & M’s with different colors.  At the end, the students ate the M & M’s.  Almost all of the students mentioned that this was a “yummy” project!

Many thanks are extended to you for signing up for this week’s drop-off and pick-up of materials.  When you arrive beginning tomorrow, you will be buzzed into school.  From there you will go into the cafeteria for drop-off and pick-up.  We ask that you put your children’s things in the bags that will be provided.  Please put their name on the bag. and then leave from the cafeteria.  Please wear a mask.

If you currently have tuition, before/after care, or lunch balance(s) and have not been in touch with our bookkeeper, please do so as soon as possible to make payment.  We certainly recognize and appreciate that these COVID-19 days have been difficult for many families and we have been working hard to make necessary accommodations for those who reached out to us.  If you have not done so, please contact Mrs. Smith at  Thank you!

We will have our final liturgy on Friday, June 12 via our school’s Facebook channel at 9:00 AM.  We hope that everyone can join us!

On Wednesday a group of diocesan principals, as well as staff members from the Office of Catholic Schools, will begin planning for the 2020-2021 School Year.  I was chosen to be a member of the committee, and I am looking forward to being a part of the process.  There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration.  We should be receiving guidance from the governor’s office soon, and those considerations will certainly be part of the planning.  There is important work to do to make sure that our diocesan schools are ready for the fall!

If you have not ordered your 2019-2020 Yearbook, please do so as soon as possible!  The yearbook is beautiful!

May we continue to hold in prayer our health care workers, first responders, those affected by COVID-19, all those providing needed goods and services, our families, our teachers, and ourselves. We also pray for healing in our country.

Thank you for your continued support!
