I have been posting work for all grades in Google Classroom this week. All students are required to log in between 9:00 and 10:00 AM at which time I will be taking attendance. Work can be submitted on the pdfs I send, on slides, on a Google Doc, or a picture of the work done on paper. Whichever method works best for you is fine with me.

I have just received word that report cards will be posted tomorrow. Once I have information as to where you can view them I will post that information here and in the class stream in Classroom. 

Grade 8 will be receiving the public high school information tomorrow. Contact me if you do not receive results from mySchools.

The Pope has asked us to join together at 4:00 to pray the Rosary.

Be safe, be well.
