Weekly Check-In with Mrs. Jenn

          5/11/20-5/15/20

Dear Holy Angels Community,

 

Hi Everyone, this is Mrs. Jenn. I want to wish all the Mom’s, Godmother’s, Aunt’s, and Grandma’s a very happy Mother’s Day. Although we are limited as to where we can go and what we can do, I am hoping you were with loved ones and able to have a special day yesterday. Last week was “Teachers appreciation week”.  I wanted to talk about our amazingly dedicated teachers who work so hard at teaching the minds of the future. I am sure many of you have to juggle being parents, being a homeschool teacher and are also working from home; NOT EASY! Our teachers are doing the same thing and I am encouraging everyone to recognize the efforts that not only the teachers are putting forth, but the entire school staff! 

 

We were all recently informed by our Governor that schools will remain closed this school year. That means, we will continue with our temporary “normal”, remote learning, for the next 6 weeks. Some people might feel like they have a solid routine established at home and are ready to conquer these next 6 weeks. Others might feel that something has got to change because their schedules and routines are no longer working or became obsolete. Here are some tips and resources for parents, teachers and kids that can be helpful in getting you all through the next 6 weeks. Remember, schooling at home is not the same as homeschooling. No one signed up for this and it happened without our permission. Being homeschooled, there is planning, preparation and a conscious choice is made for their children to receive their education at home. You are all doing great, give yourself a pat on the back and say 

“I AM DOING THE BEST I CAN IN A SITUATION I DIDN’T ASK FOR”.
