    Good morning, SAS families!


    Here is today's Morning Prayer.


    Today is the first day of the 4th Quarter.  Report cards will be emailed to parents by end of day on Friday.


    We have made one change to the schedule/expectations for remote learning, which impacts 7th and 8th Graders taking Latin and Spanish ONLY.  Beginning today, Latin and Spanish students in Grades 7 and 8 will only have lessons/assignments on Mondays and Wednesdays, but they will be approx. 45 minutes in length and students will have until 6pm on Tuesday and Thursday to submit them.  This is in response to concerns expressed by both students and parents that the world language work seemed excessive and was hard to keep up with.


    We have a special request this morning.  As you know, next week is Holy Week.  The Living Stations on Good Friday are always one of the highlights in our parish, and usually our students are actively involved.  Since they obviously cannot happen this year due to the current situation, I have offered for SAS families to create a video of the Living Stations.  I am asking for 14 families to each volunteer to videotape themselves with one station.  I have a script that I will share with you.  You would simply act it out as a family and send the video to me.  I will then compile all of the videos and upload to YouTube so that it can be shared in the parish.  Please email me ASAP if your family would like to participate.  Thank you for your sincere consideration; I think this could be such a lovely gift to our parish community during the holiest days of the year which will certainly feel different when they can't be celebrated in the usual way.


    Today's fun activity suggestion is: Make a card for a patient at Melrose Wakefield Hospital!  Many of their patients are very lonely and would love to receive a card to cheer them up!  Cards can be dropped off before Friday at the box on the Parish Center side entrance of Saint Agnes School or anytime at Energy Barre Stoneham, 5 Central Street, Stoneham, MA 02180 or mailed directly to: Patient, Melrose Wakefield Hospital, 585 Lebanon Street, Melrose, MA 02176.

    United in prayer,

    Mrs. Oglesby
