Hello Holy Child Parent community,

Thank you to all those parents who have reached out to me over the course of the school closures. I really appreciated the feedback, encouragement, suggestions, and input that I received. We are all part of the Holy Child community and collaborating with families is one of the things I love about my work.

Now, here we are in the final few days of school, and I cannot believe it! I am sure some of you (like myself) wondered if this week would ever come, but it did! I am also sure your kids, like mine, have checked out, and that is ok. As mentioned previously, it is 100% normal for kids to check out in June. This year even more so. We know they are tired. We know you are tired. We get it and we feel the same.

Reflecting on this crazy time, one thing that stood out to me was how kind, encouraging and supportive people have been. Everyone, including our parents, teachers, administrators and of course our students, really met this challenge head on and I personally think we crushed it! This was not easy, and at times it was not only tough but downright scary! This was not something we could have prepared for, and yet we did it! My hope is that when we look back on this time, we can see our successes and be proud of how we got through it. I know I am.

Lastly, I wish you and your families a healthy, happy, and fantastic summer and look forward to seeing you all in the fall.

Sincerely,
