Dear Parents/ Guardians,
As we embark on this new educational journey together, it is important that
students and parents are familiar with the expectations for remote learning and the
expectations of their classroom teachers. We will be focusing on two forms of remote
learning which are synchronous and asynchronous. You can find a chart on the next
page explaining the difference between the two…..

Testimonial from the Rosa Family
The thing that stands out to us in addition to an amazing education, is the family feeling you get from being part of this school system. Starting with the teachers and administrators, they go above and beyond to make sure each student is getting exactly what they need to succeed. Whether it is the principal putting on a band-aid or a devoted teacher staying after school and working during the summer tutoring a struggling child. They really care. We are so happy we chose the KCFS for our children.”

Testimonial from the Miller Family
We transitioned Glenn to a Kennedy Catholic in 8th grade as we wanted him to get comfortable with the school before the important high school years. The transition was very easy for him. Everyone made him feel comfortable and his grades were better than we all expected.
When the transition to remote learning took place our local public school took 2 weeks to begin learning from home. Kennedy was ready in a day. After the first week of everyone adjusting to the new learning environment Glenn excelled and made highest honors the second two grading periods.
Glenn really enjoyed his teachers and they were readily available to him during the remote learning experience.

Testimonial from the McGoff Family
I’m so thankful for the St John Paul II elementary family! The teachers are wonderful and go above and beyond to help all of their students. The teachers are easily accessible for questions or problems. Because the parent teacher connection is so great, the transition to remote learning was so smooth. Messages from the school and teachers were received multiply times a week to keep us updated.

Testimonial from the Gealy Family
The dedication of the faculty at SJPII has always been exceptional, however it was on full display throughout this past year. Mrs Tiefenthal was available whenever we had questions- not just during typical school hours. The classes that were continued transferred seamlessly to remote learning. We especially enjoyed the zoom story times and virtual field trips. I believe that we were given enough tools to keep our children on track and in a way that I was not left feeling overscheduled. This was important to me because as I worked from home and at the office, we were able to complete the assignments at our convenience. I take comfort in knowing that the Kennedy Catholic Family of Schools has proved the ability to adjust the classroom accordingly to these uncertain times.
