Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope you are all well as we begin this process of learning from home. Your children, I am sure, may be scared and confused at what we are going through. It is difficult to live through history, as we all know. However, we are blessed to know that all in our school community are safe and secure for now. We pray for those who may not be as blessed.
Thank you for your patience as we begin rolling out our Distance Learning Program. Today all of our teachers met to update their Google Classrooms and to post their lessons. They worked very diligently to develop lessons that will engage our children. We are also rolling out a website that will give you quicker access to other resources for engagement. I am attaching a link to a “Parent’s Guide to Google Classroom”. in slides. This may assist you in navigating through the app.
Each child should have their class code and their username. The stream section of the classroom is for students to communicate with teachers and each other in discussion. As we move forward there might be other types of classroom engagement, but not this week.
Teachers will be available to chat with your child in the stream section of the Google Classroom. Their time will be posted below.
iReady logins are with your child. If you do not have them please contact Mrs. Spordone or me. The site is https://login.i-ready.com/. Kindergarten and Grade 1 children have their login cards which are made up of numbers and symbols. They are new to the iReady platform and may need assistance in accessing their account.
Attendance will be taken when your child logs into their classroom and fills out a form. This form will populate a spreadsheet that we will use for attendance every day. If we have not seen a login over a period of time, we will contact you to make sure you are not experiencing difficulties.
There is also a Sacred Heart distance learning website for grade K – 8. https://sites.google.com/sacredheartbayside.org/sacred-heart-online-learning/home
There are activities for all grades and links to google and iReady. I hope it assists you. More enrichment links will be added as companies open their sites to us and I am able to add them to the list.
I will reach out to you regarding report cards. At this time, we may be emailing them to you. Teachers will be available for email communication regarding grades.
Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding the next few weeks.

A Note to Parents:
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday break! Thank you so much for your generous and beautiful gifts, I can’t express enough how grateful I am to everyone for their thoughtfulness. In this portion of the year we will be exploring Transportation, Light, Water, Plants, Babies, and Changes! Lots of exciting experiments are coming up as we look into these topics! Plus we will have parties to look forward to, especially our Luau this February! Aloha!
When last we met we were discussing and creating various kinds of homes we can find in New York City, in addition to celebrating the holidays with parties and crafts. This week our dioramas are due and I know the children will be very excited to explain what they created over break; I can’t wait to see them! Since we are learning about where we live, please work with your child to learn their address and phone number, two important pieces of information that each child should learn.
Please note a few important dates:
1. Monday, January 6, 2020 – Welcome back to school! Full day with aftercare available.
2. Friday, January 17, 2020 – Full day of school for Pre-K for All although the rest of the school will be closed;
3. Monday, January 20 – No class, school closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Once in the classroom, please help your child wash their hands before signing in; after sign-in they may play at any of the puzzles or table top toys left out for this purpose. Remember if you wish to provide a substitute meal for your child, this is a nut free classroom therefore no foods with nuts, Nutella, or other nut products may be brought into the classroom; thank you for your cooperation. Finally, I have posted the January/February Mystery Reader Sign-Up Sheet for sign-up; thank you to our many exciting Mystery Readers!
What We’re Learning:
This week we will finish our fourth unit of study: Where We Live. We will focus on the following concepts:
1. Where do I live? Where do my family members live?
2. Where do people and animals live?
3. What types of homes do the people in my city (NYC) live in?
4. How do people and animals make homes?
By the end of the unit children will understand that:
1. Homes are the places where we live;
2. Animals and people have many different types of homes;
3. Some animals live with people;
4. People and animals make homes.
This week we are focusing on how people and animals make their homes; we will talk about drawing plans for a home (people or animal) and creating it from materials in our classroom. We will discuss the use of blueprints, the materials real homes are made from, architects and their jobs and how animals make their homes and the materials they use. We will talk about shapes and how they are used in building our homes. We will continue to discuss how manners show others that we care about them and that kind words and actions are necessary to have a happy classroom. We will learn that each of us is a special and unique member of our class and our family and that we all have feelings which we must respect in order to live, learn and play safely together.
Finally, please help your child practice at home correctly signing their name using both upper and lower cases: initial letter capital, the rest lower case, thank you. Please also practice putting on and taking off coats and jackets; we are learning how to zipper and button and we need to practice at home, too! Please practice storing your mittens/gloves in your hat and your hat in your coat sleeve, this way all our clothes are available in one package for recess. Please check your clothing bins and switch to cold weather clothing for changes, many children still have summer clothes. Please make sure your child has warm outerwear for recess since we go outside for recess every day!
Vocabulary words for the week include: architect, backyard, blueprint, build, bricks, cement, concrete, construction, exit, fire escape, floor plans, glass, metal, shingles, and straw.
FEP: Animal Habitat Diorama. Please help your child pick a favorite animal and create a shoe box diorama of the animal’s habitat. Previously we discussed ocean, woodland, desert, and polar habitats and what animals we would find in each; we also discussed which animals we would find on a farm. Dioramas will be due on Friday, January 10 after we return from break. Please see the online directions. You may bring in your diorama early if it is ready.
On behalf of myself, Mrs. Romanello, Mrs. LaTempa, Mrs. Lutzky, Mrs. Cosgrove, and Mrs. Conlan, I would like to thank all of our families for entrusting your children to our care; each child is a special gift and holds a very special place in our hearts; we are “ohana” (family). I would also like to thank our Mystery Readers and families who have contributed their time and talents to make our class exciting and interesting. We thank you all for your kindness and generosity over this holiday season and we are glad to be back with your children!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope your family is enjoying this season of Advent. At school we are lighting the Advent wreath in the expectation that Jesus will soon be here. Monday we are off because of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a Holy Day of obligation.
As you know, last month the children from grades 1 – 8 took the iReady diagnostic. We are using this as a starting point to determine where our children are and how we can grow as a school, academically. We will also be using the Terra Novas for this. The iReady diagnostic also has an instructional component that will allow us to directly impact classroom instruction at each child’s level. I am very excited to use this as a piece of our instruction. The Terra Nova Scores have just arrived. Unfortunately we did not have them for report cards. I am hoping to
On December 18th at 7:00 pm we will be having a Christmas Concert with the Nativity play. Grade K – 8 will be involved in the performances. Christmas concerts really allow us to feel that it is Christmas time. Miss Jessica has worked very hard to put this performance together and I am sure that your families will enjoy this experience.
Breakfast with Santa was a great success. Over 200 people attended. Thank you to the Kindergarten Parents and the rest of the school parents who did such a wonderful job and shared their talents.
You can see that we have received some rather large equipment that is currently outside the school on 216th Street and in the Parish rectory. These are the parts for the playground and basketball hoops that will be installed shortly. I can’t wait to see our children playing on them. Hopefully the weather will be milder and the construction can start. I think we will all be amazed when it is done. The new playground will not interfere with the areas the children currently use for recess and the basketball hoops will enhance the recess experience for all the students. They will be placed in the playground area on 217th.
Catholic Schools Week is at the end of January and we will be informing you of the great activities that the students will be participating in. It will be starting on Sunday, January 26. As usual Sacred Heart will host an Open House after 9:30 Mass at the church, with breakfast in the cafeteria. Please be on the lookout for more information about the activities that the children will be engaging in.
I wish you and your family a very Blessed Merry Christmas.
Learning about Hispanic people who made a global impact is key to learning about culture.The 7th grade Spanish class worked together in building this collaboration poster. They colored, cut and put each piece together as part of a team. Each class also created research posters on each individual represented in this beautiful mosaic. Thank you Mrs. Marino and 7th grade for all your efforts.This great image is displayed in our front hallway.
