Remote Learning Day 43

Remote Learning Day 43

Greetings, ARCS Families!

We are on Day 43 of remote learning, and I hope that this was a good day for you and for your children.

Please remember that our ARCS Field Day will take place tomorrow, Friday, May 29.  We hope you are able to join in the fun with your family!  Mrs. Flammer sent home the directions yesterday and included a score sheet as well.   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!

As I shared before, Father Tom recently celebrated his 25 Anniversary of being ordained a priest!  While we were not permitted to celebrate his anniversary in school, we certainly acknowledge our gratitude to Father Tom for his “yes” to God and for his service to God’s people.  Father Tom loves being the pastor of a parish that supports a Catholic school.  He believes in Catholic education and what we do at ARCS.  Father Tom visits school most days, and he is always excited to interact with the students and with the teachers.

We put together a video for Father Tom. (Thank you, Mrs. Flammer)  I sent it to him earlier and he was deeply touched by it!  Thank you to everyone who sent in greetings to Father Tom!

Below are three links:

Morning Greeting and Prayer

Afternoon Prayer (Thank you, Katya!)

Special Guest (Congratulations, Father Tom!)

I continue to be grateful to our teachers for the many ways that they are continuing with our curriculum.  Today I enjoyed viewing debates by our 7th Graders, seeing the “Grouchy Ladybug” clocks in Kindergarten, and Circles and PI in 5th Grade math!

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!
