PreSchool A – A Message from Mrs. Kerins

Dear Parents,

I’ve heard from many of you. As I’m sure you know, I’d much rather be in school.  I’ve been talking to Ms. Roeder and we both miss all of “our children” terribly.  Some of you have indicated that the children are missing their routine.  I’m attaching a copy of what we do very morning.  Your child should be able to help you if you choose to try it.  I will try to send more “work” packets but many of the things we do require “me” or supplies that you may not have. I think it’s probably mostly coloring sheets that I can send.  Don’t know how helpful that is.  I’m still checking the websites. The school really doesn’t subscribe to most of the early childhood sites.  You can sign up for the free 30 day trial.  I have been in touch with our tech person and she is checking to see if she can come up with some other sites.

PreSchool A Distance Learning Info…

Dear Preschool Families,
As we prepare to engage in distance learning, I have prepared a few things you can work on at home. I have attached the coloring sheets that we normally use for the next three letters. I have also included two charts with activities that you can do together. There is also a list of helpful websites.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time. I hope you find these activities useful in making your child’s time at home as meaningful as possible. Let’s keep the lines of communication open and know that we are all in this together.

SFACA Distance Learning Information for All Grades

Dear Parents,

We learned today that all schools and academies in the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens will be closed until April 20, 2020.  This was a difficult decision and it came out of the heartfelt concern for our entire school community. Alternative learning venues are being set into place to ensure that the students will be engaged and learning. 

In order to keep our students moving forward here at SFACA grades 3 through 8 will be utilizing Google Classroom for instruction.  All students have their Google sign-ins and should log in daily to complete work assigned by the teacher.  Report Cards are being mailed home today along with your Option C log in.
