Good Friday is both a sad and a glad day for us.
It’s sad because it’s the day Jesus was nailed to a wooden cross and died. But it’s a glad day because we know that Jesus died out of love for us.
Jesus offered his life to God the Father so that we could go to heaven one day. We want to show Jesus that we will stay by his side. On this day we eat simple food and do not eat meat.
All day long we try to be quieter and stay close to Jesus in our thoughts and prayers. We learn about true love from Jesus.
Parents can talk to their children about the Stations of the Cross.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
From the NYC DOE:
In order to successfully fight COVID-19, our first responders, health care providers, transit workers, and other key personnel must be able to come to work. That is why we have created Regional Enrichment Centers—places where the children of these front-line workers can be safely cared for while their parents continue to serve the city in this time of need.
Staffed by DOE employees and community-based organization partners, the centers will provide children with three daily hot meals, remote learning time with their teachers, activities like art, music, and physical education, and social and emotional support.
Beginning Monday, March 23, Regional Enrichment Centers are opening across every borough, with at least two sites in every school district.
Eligibility and Enrollment
The DOE has been reaching out to other City agencies, unions, and partner organizations to help identify and contact families of first responders, health care workers, and key transit employees who will need to send their children to the Regional Enrichment Centers.
With these partners, we are working to alert families about this opportunity and to help register the children for a site near their home. If you think you might be eligible to send your child to a center near you, please complete thes survey by clicking the link:
Enrichment Centers are being set up for all grades by the NYC DOE in each school district for the children of First Responders. It will be a place where the children are watched, fed and have access to Remote Learning.
At this time, the known criteria are children of NYPD, FDNY and Local 1199 Health Workers Union. There will be additional First Responder groups added to the criteria and that information will be sent out upon receipt from the NYC DOE.
The recommendation is for each Principal to begin to compile a list of families that are First Responders, NYPD, FDNY and Local 1199. Once information about the Enrichment Centers is received I will then be able to quickly get the information out to those families. Follow the link below to fill out a form.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for your patience as we begin experiencing the fallout from the COVID 19 – Coronavirus. Our prayers are with those around the world and in our community affected by it.
Although you have all received the usernames and passwords for your children in grades K – 5, (Junior High already has theirs), distance learning will not begin until March 17th. The teachers and I will be meeting on Monday, March 16th to iron out any difficulties with the distance learning and to begin planning long term. At that time the school building will be open. If your child was absent this week, and you need to pick up their books and work, you may come to the school building between 8:00 am and 12:00 pm on Monday to pick it up.
In the meantime, you can attempt to log your child into those sites. iReady can be downloaded as an app into a tablet, or your can log in through login.iready.com. Please remember that the iReady Reading is 45 minutes and that Math is also 45 minutes. These can be done once a week each. If your child does not achieve a passing grade the program will give them two attempts. If they do not succeed twice, that module closes down. He or she can move onto the next one. If you experience any problems with passwords or have any questions, please contact me. Google Classroom can be accessed by having your child log into Gmail. Google classroom can be reached by clicking on the “waffle: or “cube in the upper right hand corner of the site. The Google Classroom icon is yellow and green with the word classroom underneath.
Tablets, phones laptop and Chromebooks can be used to access these platforms. If for any reason you feel that your device is not adequate, we can distribute a loaner to a family who needs it. Please call Mrs. Nittolo tomorrow to let her know to so that we can make one available to you before 1:00 pm.
