STS Principle's Message - March 24, 2020

Aloha STS Families!

Week 2 of Spring Break is bringing a spirit of ADAPTATION to our school.  All head teachers are back to work, and the objective is online learning with a personal touch from Preschool through 8th grade.  Our morning meeting solidified our plan: 9 days of “roll out” lessons (phase 1) followed by increased activities, scheduling optional in-class time, implementing video interaction and instruction, refining our assessment procedures and providing resources to keep learning and progress in motion (phase 2).

I know this is a stressful time for our families on so many levels. Our goal is to make STS a positive part of your child’s daily routine. We are confident in our ability to provide a platform that meets academic objectives and provides valuable resources for alternate methods of learning for all grades.  We will grow from this experience and become a better school because of it.

A few notes:

  1. March 25, 26, 27 - supply pick up (see digital learning plan post on SS)

  2. March 30 - Google Classroom initiated.

  3. March 30-April 9 - Phase 1 roll out period. Teachers will be working on best practices for instruction, parents will be creating learning routines, communication will be critical.  Please direct questions, ideas, and constructive criticism to your teachers.  Our aim at this time is improvement, and we must all be on board to make this work!  

  4. April 13- Phase 2 in action. We expect to have ironed out any rough edges and increase our instruction and support methods. We will be guided by CDC and County rules regarding in-person support. Although Hawaii Catholic Schools has not announced an extended shut down yet, we will be ready for it if it happens.

Teachers will be at work all this week preparing our Digital Learning. Here is how you can prepare at home:

  1. Request a chromebook if needed. Google classroom is workable on iPads, tablets, PC’s, and iPhones. Every child enrolled at STS has a Google account they will log in to.

  2. Prepare a learning environment. Where will work take place? Set the stage, let your child help set up their “classroom.”

  3. Review the routine. Build in reading time, flash card time, lesson time, and don’t forget recess! Create some home classroom rules together.

On Friday, a complete guide to navigating Google Classroom will be published on School Speak and you will be receiving passwords and log in information if you have not already. We will also offer a directory for IT support.

There are many decisions to be made regarding Carnival, fundraisers, May Day, and in person classroom options.  These decisions will be weighed carefully and announcements will be made accordingly.  This week, our main priority is providing high quality, targeted academics to our learners at home.     

Finally, thank you for the outpouring of support and ideas for keeping our school thriving during this trying time. We are blessed in the community we serve.  

Blessings of health and safety to all….

Important - Campus Closure 4/30/2020

After consultation with many principals and pastors, the following directive has been authorized by Bishop Silva for the twenty-five parochial schools/ELC’s:  Due to our social responsibility, and in solidarity with our State leaders, all parochial schools will extend the postponement of “in person” classes through Thursday, April 30, 2020. For most of our schools, this means that distance learning will continue through that date.

What does this mean for St. Theresa School?

1.  We will move forward confidently with our Digital Learning Plan.  We will hold to our plan of rolling out Google Classroom until April 9, then increasing academic and support services. 

2.  We are dedicated to providing as much in person support as is socially appropriate and logical.  All in person support or tutoring is scheduled directly with your teacher.  We will abide by County rules for gathering.

All plans made thus far are still in effect and are being carried out. 

*EDC payments for the month of March have been prorated.  EDC payments for the rest of the year have been removed from FACTS.

Important - Carnival Update

In light of the current public health safety situation, St. Theresa School will postpone our annual Carnival fundraiser until further notice. The health and safety of our community, especially our kupuna, is of utmost importance and we want to do all that we can to protect them.

Our carnival is a very important fundraiser for our school and our hope is to reschedule within this fiscal year.  

1.  Each family is responsible for turning in $350 in ticket sales by extended deadline of MAY 1.  

2.  Tickets will be honored at rescheduled event.  Please keep selling tickets!

3.  Families will be asked to participate in alternate fundraisers as needed.  

Registration 2020 - 2021 Open!

STS Registration is open for the 2020- 2021 School Year.  

Families are required to submit the attached forms and payment to secure their admission.  If you have multiple learners registering, please fill out one form per child.
