    Good Morning, Everyone! 
     
    As we enter week three of online learning, we have all been working hard to incorporate the suggestions that you have been sending us to continuously improve the teaching and learning experience for your children. I would like to remind everyone that Easter vacation is scheduled to begin after 2pm on Tuesday, April 7th. Online learning will resume on Monday, April 20th. This will give all of us the time to recharge. I will contact you during the vacation as I receive updates regarding the reopening of school. Thank you to those of you who have already sent us pictures of your children engaged in work or play. If you have not already done so, please consider emailing me a few photos.
    As these unprecedented times surround us, let us continue to work together to promote the success of our students. May God bless us all!
     
    Thought for the Week...
     
    A voice of one calling: Prepare the way for the Lord in the wilderness; make a straight highway for our God in the desert. Every valley shall be lifted, and every mountain and hill made low; the uneven ground will become smooth, and the rugged land a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all humanity together will see it. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.   Isaiah 40:3-5

    Most merciful and Triune God,
    We come to you in our weakness.
    We come to you in our fear.
    We come to you with trust.
    For you alone are our hope.

    We place before you the disease present in our world.
    We turn to you in our time of need.

    Bring wisdom to doctors.
    Give understanding to scientists.
    Endow caregivers with compassion and generosity.
    Bring healing to those who are ill.
    Protect those who are most at risk.
    Give comfort to those who have lost a loved one.
    Welcome those who have died into your eternal home.

    Stabilize our communities.
    Unite us in our compassion.
    Remove all fear from our hearts.
    Fill us with confidence in your care.

    Jesus, I trust in you.
    Jesus, I trust in you.
    Jesus, I trust in you.
    Amen.
