Dear Sacred Heart Families,

It is hard to believe it has only been two weeks since we were all in school together.

Please remember to stay safe! I am sure Sacred Heart families are doing their part to social distance at this very critical time.

I know we are all missing each other terribly! Take a moment and send me a picture of how your children are filling their days with a caption of what is taking place. Send it to my cell at 517-403-2824 and I will post it on our Facebook page.

Beginning on Monday, March 23rd, SHS will be sending a weekly newsletter to every family with encouragement from our teachers. In the newsletter, we will have lesson plans, resources, crafts, recipes, videos and ideas to inspire learning at home. Families– it would be wonderful if you could keep a log of the work that your children were able to complete. We do not have the expectation that all of the work will be done but want to give you plenty of resources so you can keep your children busy.

We will be utilizing Edmentum’s Study Island for distance learning in the near future. Study Island is free and easy to use. Better yet, it is aligned to our curriculum and standards. Teachers will be able to assign specific lessons for math, reading, science(K-6th) and social studies (for older students). The lessons are taught with videos and on- line lessons that include flashcards and worksheets. This is a way for students to spend part of the day connected to Sacred Heart curriculum and they are accountable for their lessons. You will be notified as soon as have this program ready to launch. Families are able to sign up for a free year of Study Island right now to try it out on their own. See the attachment for easy instructions.Study Island- student sign up.jpg

Thank you so much for your patience as we try to work out the details of suddenly being closed.

TUITION

We are still working on an end of the year tuition plan for K-6th grade families. We will update you as we know more about the fate of the end of the school year. If you are not able to pay your tuition now, please contact Tammy at 448-6405 and she will suspend your payment.

ENROLLMENT

Enrollment for 2020-2021 is underway! Packets can be dropped off in the drop box outside of the Church Rectory (the big house next to the Sacred Heart Church). Enrollment papers are also available at sacredhearthudson.org or contact the school if you need a hard copy.

Spots in our Preschool/ Developmental Kindergarten and Kindergarten are determined by the date which we receive enrollment papers with special consideration being given to our current families.

The same is true for 1st-6th grade but those classrooms are not as likely to reach capacity this Spring.

REPORT CARDS

Report Cards will be sent home next week. Quarter 3 officially ended today, but was abruptly ended on Friday, March 13th. The teachers made sure that the grades given reflected a fair assessment of the grades that were in the grade book at that time.

Continue to follow Sacred Heart School-Hudson on Facebook for important announcements and resources.

Remind your children that they have worked on virtue every day that they have been at Sacred Heart School.   They know how to be patient, kind, courteous, industrious, courageous, and they know how to persevere. It is a great time to put all of this virtue into practice!     I continue to pray for all of you and I would love prayers for our school!

 

May God Bless You,

Anne Atkin, Principal
