On-line instruction during COVID-19
updated April 22, 2020
Joyous Easter Season to you from our volunteer teachers, aides, and helpers along with the RE staff at Sacred Heart. As we navigate through these new times our hope is that you are continuing taking care of yourselves, physically, mentally and spiritually.
Due to an inability for meeting face to face for the remainder of the RE school year, we are continuing to update online instructions to complement what classroom teachers are already emailing to their students. Our purpose is providing families the resources needed for continuing students’ education at home. Home has always been where faith formation begins, our goal is building upon your foundation. We plan to update this page every week this month.
Below are updated details or links for each class grade to help you and your child(ren) finish up the missed classes for April. It is organized by grade/class and not necessarily by teacher. Many individual teachers are also sending weekly notes with updates, assignments, and activities.
