Dear McDonnell Family,
I want to take this time to thank everyone for your continuous support and commitment to making our Blended Learning Program a success. We know it has been challenging for everyone. Although this has not been the ideal situation, we know everyone has given it their best and we are getting through it together. During these unprecedented times we recognize the stress the uncertainty put on all of us. The bright light in all of this is the overwhelming sense of community demonstrated through these challenges.
There are so many heartfelt thanks that I need to send out to teachers, staff, parents, students and community members for their perseverance and dedication during this challenging time. Our faculty and staff demonstrated extreme effort to insure our family stay connected, planning for a different delivery of learning, motivating our students and meeting their needs. I appreciate our parents for continuously encouraging their children to complete their work and Google Meet with their teachers. Thank you to all our students for being excited and always smiling during the Google Meets and completing their work. And to our community members for providing food and donating their time to make sure our students had breakfast and lunch, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
You are all amazing and your kind messages have helped McDonnell Elementary School remain focused and ready to serve. We continue to be inspired and humbled by your emails, phone calls, photos, and responses to our efforts during this time. This continues to be a very difficult time for everyone. It is awe inspiring to witness, and be a part of, this caring, supportortive,conscientious, and tireless McDonnell family and community. We miss our teachers, staff, and especially our smiling students and families, and we will continue to maintain close communication throughout this unpredictable time.
