On Friday, I posted the letter from our superintendent stating that all Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fresno will continue with online learning through the end of the school year. If you missed it, please scroll down to read it.
This week we will have school Monday - Wednesday. In observance of spring break, there will be no online classes/work again until April 20.
I wish all of you and your families a happy and holy Easter! Let us pray for an Easter miracle, and an end to this Coronavirus.
Monday- Assignment: In google classroom, click on the link to watch the video, "Holy Week in 3 minutes." Then answer the questions.
Lent Calendar-Watch this short video. Email me and answer: Why did Jesus wash his disciples' feet? What example did he set?
You should receive an email from me which has the readings for the Stations of the Cross. I wlll need 15 readers for Tuesdays Zoom meeting (for the 14 stations and the closing prayer) Please email me if you would like to be a reader. I will take the 1st 15 who volunteer. In the email, let me know which one you would like to read. If you wish to read, you will need to have it open in another window on your computer or print it out ahead of time.
Tuesday- Today's Zoom meeting will be longer We will pray the Stations of the Cross and do the vocabulary assignment. Anyone who attends will get their Lent calendar marked for today since we are praying the Stations of the Cross.
Wednesday-Assignment: Take the Quizizz about Holy Week
One of my cousins is a nurse at the hospital at USC in Los Angeles. She has been caring for 14 patients with the coronavirus. Her name is Kevel. You can make her a card to encourage her and thank her. Then email it to me,and I will send them to her. If you have a family member who is a doctor, nurse, or medical worker and would prefer to make the card for them, that is great. Just email a picture of it to me, so I know that you did it.
Thursday: We do not have online school today. If we had been in regular school, we would've had a prayer service for Holy Thursday. You can still get your Lent Calendar marked by doing the following: Call someone (an elderly person if possible) who would love to hear from you. Check on how they're doing during this difficult time. Email me and let me know who you called.
