Greetings Lower School Families,
It is hard to believe that we just finished our fourth week of Distance Learning. Thank you for partnering with us as we strive to provide the best possible Distance Learning program and work to meet the needs of each family. We appreciate your hard work. It is not easy to be both a parent and the facilitator of your child's education. It is a privilege to partner with you. I found this newsletter titled "Help, I am a parent! Not a teacher" from the National Catholic Educational Association really helpful and offers really sound advice.
Connect with Families - Parent Calls
All Lower School families will receive or have received a call from their classroom teacher this week or next. We are eager to connect with you and to get your feedback on Distance Learning.

Medical Masks Service Project Update
Our beloved Lower School Art Teacher Ms. Baca loves working in a place where she can practice her faith and teach what she loves. Along with teaching art, Ms. Baca and her family, including Amalia '18, Isa '19 and Nico (STA '21) are helping 3-D print face shields using 3-D printers from Vis. With both printers running, the Baca family is able to print about 10 shields a day and will continue printing until the need has been met. I am very proud of their work!
Public Libraries - Curbside Pick Up
Did you know that many of our local libraries are still open and you can check out books for your child? Many are even offering curbside pick up. This is a great opportunity to continue developing a love of literacy at home. Check out Dakota County Library Curbside Pick Up for some local information.
