School year ‘20-‘21 Off To A Good Start
We are a little over a month into the new school year and I am happy to report that the Silver Knights are thriving. Hybrid classes are progressing, fall sports teams are doing well, our Senior Court has been selected, spirit week plans are being hatched by the Executive Board of Student Council, Masses have occurred for all of our classes, and daily life in the halls of Ready continues as normal - well, the new normal, as we say.
We are preparing to acquaint our 8th grade students with an introduction to Ready life through virtual presentations, printed materials, and phone calls. We will add a few visits to their classrooms as protocols permit.
Our guidance department is planning virtual visits from college representatives as our seniors engage in the university/college application process.
Zoom meetings abound - not a perfect way to meet but certainly effective under the circumstances.
We wish to thank our students and parents for rising to the occasion and salute our faculty for the extra effort that a hybrid model requires.
We also continue to pray for those families impacted personally by COVID-19 and for health care workers on the front lines of the effort to care for the sick, as well as all essential workers who continue to make it possible for us to continue to function.
Pope Francis just issued an encyclical titled “Fratelli Tutti” - We are All Brothers and Sisters. He calls upon all people of good will to stand in solidarity with one another. A well-timed message for a fractured world. We, at Bishop Ready, will answer this call in word and deed. We are all connected.
Our freshman class is adjusting to high school life and is fully engaged in all things Ready.
As the days and nights turn cooler, we will enter the second half of the first quarter with enthusiasm, optimism, school spirit, and a resolve to help one another keep safe. Please take to heart the words of Pope Francis. We are indeed brothers and sisters all. And must work for peace and justice for all.
