Because of COVID-19, we will be doing distance learning. This means that your child will be learning at home. I will be providing daily lessons on Google Classroom. This app is compatible on tablets, cellphones, as well as online. Microsoft Teams will be used to communicate with the students. Every Monday and Wednesday we will be using Zoom for online conferences:
6th Grade: 10:15 am
7th Grade: 9:20 AM
8th Grade: 12:45
If they have any questions, I will answer them through Teams.
Where can I find my child’s daily/weekly assignments?
Everyday, your child’s assignments are posted on Google Classroom as followed.
6th Grade: 10 Am
7th Grade: 9 AM
8th Grade: 12 PM
Is there a deadline for the assignments?
Yes. Everyday there will be a 5pm deadline for all the assignments given out.
How about attendance?
Attendance will be counted for. Every day the students must sign in for attendance at 11:00 AM

Dear Parents and Guardians of 8 th Grade Students,
I am writing to provide an update regarding the Class of 2020 8 th grade graduation. We
understand that it is disappointing for your child to end their final Catholic elementary
school year without being able to celebrate the 8 th grade graduation milestones with
friends, family and their school community. However, we must still be ever mindful of
the New York City and New York State safety and wellness guidelines. The guidelines
– We must always be 6 feet apart (Social Distancing)
– We must always wear a mask
– We must never congregate in a group larger than 10 people
– We must never be in contact with people, if we are showing any
signs of sickness
We have all seen events on television celebrating graduation activities, but each event
planned in the Diocese of Brooklyn is bound by New York City and New York State
A decision has been made to move to a virtual graduation ceremony, considering the
current orders regarding stay-at-home orders, social distancing requirements and
restrictions on large gatherings. This very difficult decision was made with the safety of
our students, staff, families and community in mind.
While we know this is not how you imagined your child ending their elementary school
experience, please know that your school leaders are doing everything in their power to
make the Class of 2020 graduation celebration special and memorable for your child
and their families.
In the coming weeks, your school principal will be communicating the plan for all
graduation activities and events.
May God, Our Father bless your child as they graduate and begin the next chapter of
their educational journey. I would like to close this letter with this Parent Prayer…
May God Bless your graduates
May He keep them safe and sound; healthy in mind and soul
May they be ever aware of the awaiting crown as they navigate life
May they grow closer to God in and through their upcoming experiences
May they grow closer to their loved ones in and through their experiences
May God bless you, the parents, as you watch your children jump
May God keep them free of shame and us free of worry.
Thomas Chadzutko, Ed.D.
