Good Friday -No School 

The most sacred hours during Good Friday are from noon to 3:00, because this is when Jesus was on the cross. They’re sometimes known as the 3 hours of agony. During this time, hold a silence in your home, and encourage your children to do the same (to the best of their ability). Turn off the phones, TV, and other devices.

 

Tips for At-Home Learning

Learn when your child’s best “focus time” is. Many children function best in the morning. We know that your job obligations may restrict the hours when you are available to help your child - but perhaps there are things that he/she can complete with minimal assistance from you during “focus time.”

·         Find a designated area you plan to work each day. Have school supplies and books in that area. Let your child help you set this up with you. It will give them the sense of control and pride.

·         Allow for frequent breaks. If your child seems frustrated or is getting antsy, set a timer for 5-10 minutes and allow them to choose another activity before returning to their work.

·         Verbally tell and/or list out the assignments your child must complete in a day. A list where they can check things off can be very helpful.

·         Allow your child to plan a fun activity to do after assignments are finished.

·       Grant yourself grace! :) This is a difficult and unexpected situation for all.
