Remote Learning Day 42

Remote Learning Day 42

Greetings, ARCS Families!

We are on Day 42 of remote learning, and I hope that you had a good day!

As shared with you previously, the last day of school is Friday, June 12. Instead of ending on Monday, June 15, Father Tom granted a “Pastor’s Day” in honor of his 25th Ordination as a priest.  We will have a livestream Mass at 9:00 AM.  Early next week, we will send home a form for you to complete in order to sign up for a time to come to school to drop off school  textbooks and Chromebooks, and to drop off work that needs to be handed in. There may also be items that you need to bring home as well.  This will occur on Tuesday, June 9, Wednesday, June 10, and Thursday, June 11.

Our annual Mary Ellen Schurtz Ribbons of Hope Field Day is one of our time-honored traditions at ARCS.  We did not want to totally abandon it this year!  Field Day will take place on Friday, May 29.  We hope you are able to join in the fun with your family!  Mrs. Flammer sent home the directions again in another email and included a score sheet for you to use if you so desire.   Please feel free to make this day what works best for your family.  If the events do not appeal to you then please feel free to go for a walk, take a bike ride, go on a hike, run, whatever is good for you!  We will kick off the virtual field day at 9:00 AM on May 29 via livestream on our Facebook page. Please wear your Mary Ellen Schurtz Ribbons of Hope Field Day t-shirt and send pictures to Mrs. Flammer or post on our Facebook page.  Mrs. Bryz-Gornia will demonstrate some of the games to get us started!  We are very excited about this day!

Mrs. Flammer also shared with you the virtual run/walk that we will be having.  We are excited about this event as a way to provide additional financial assistance for our families.  I hope that you will be able to participate!

Afternoon Prayer (Thank you, Isabelle!)

Special Guests (Thank you, Miss Jen and Miss Jennifer)

I continue to be grateful to our teachers for the many ways that they are continuing with our curriculum.  Through my visits to Zoom classes, teacher-made videos, and in lesson plans, I have experienced the joy of writing poetry in 4th Grade; learning  multiplication in 2nd Grade; our call to be evangelizers in 7th Grade Religion; “How Plates Create ~ Snack Tectonics” in 6th Grade Science;  continuation of Charlotte’s Web in 3rd Grade; Busy, Busy Bees project in Kindergarten;  and measurement in 1st Grade Math;  Gratitude abounds!

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.

Thank you for your continued support!  Please let your children know how much they are missed each day, and how grateful we are for their continued faithfulness to their assignments.

With prayerful gratitude,

Joan Dollinger
