March 25, 2020
Joyful Moment of the Week
The amazing teaching staff embraced a new idea to bring Xavier Catholic Schools (XCS) together and provide you a consistent idea and activity each week. You are receiving this today via your child's room teacher!
Thank you to the amazing Jaguar leaders who have been working hard to provide support to all in our community, especially our Jaguars!
Dear Jaguar families,
Coming to a email box near you.....
Today you will receiving the first of three communications regarding the XCS elementary e-learning plan. The teachers across Xavier Catholic Schools (XCS) have been working very hard the last two days to put together a plan for each grade level. The goal being that you have a set of activities to do that span academics and faith; these activities can be done in any order and for students to pick and choose which task they want to complete that day.
You will be receiving the XCS template with a weeks worth of activities on the time schedule below. Please know that all of these plans will be posted on the St. Matthew COVID-19 website under the Academic Resources section for easy access.
Today - Wednesday, March 25th
Monday, March 30th
Monday, April 6th
As families, we hope that this will allow for some fun and meaningful dialogue throughout the week while creating an environment for students that is meaningful. Please do these as you see fit and as you can; nothing is required! Our goal is to maintain skills until we return together in April!
Your teachers may also send some additional things based on their classroom structure as well; please remember that we completely understand the disruption that has just happened to all of our lives and our goal is to not overwhelm, rather equip you with some things you can do together until we meet again. I know many of you are like me having a work from home job, in addition to being mom; please remember that the greatest gift we can give our students is time together; if academics can be a small part of that, great, but if not, know that your child(ren) appreciate the time you have together! And for those of you on the front lines and taking care of our community, THANK YOU; I appreciate the work you are doing and know that for you, this means time away from loved ones. Many thanks and prayers to you all!
