From the Principal: Reflecting on the 2021-2022 School Year
Dear Resurrection Community,
While this year's challenges, courtesy of the pandemic, were certainly a reality, our community came together to ensure that fellowship and faith were still being built on a daily basis here at RCS.
The COVID pandemic provided many challenges. And yet, as a community we came together to keep our community safe. Due to our procedures, we limited spread, and continued to keep in-person learning going without a beat. We instituted our Faith Family communities, where students could engage in faith-building, as well as school-spirit based activities. We saw a return of all-school Masses, and in-person Rosaries and Stations of the Cross. We had weekly Confession and Fr. Anthony Saiki, Pastor of St. Peter Cathedral, visited classes to answer questions each week.
We saw the return of the Chili Bingo at St. Mary’s-St. Anthony’s after a two-year hiatus. We continued First Communion at our partner parishes. And we continue to build and grow our partnerships with Bishop Ward High School as well as Donnelly College.
While the pandemic may have impacted many things, it did not impact our pursuit for excellence. We received full accreditation from COGNIA this past November, and with many positives about our school and community being highlighted in the report. Still, we continue to explore ways as a school to grow our student and faculty learning community for the upcoming 2022-2023 year. One of our priorities is to resume the process to be a STEM-accredited school, and we have already made the proper investments to begin that process. This includes the building of our STREAM lab, which was in full usage this past school year, as well as the addition of another member to our STREAM team, who will start this fall.
It has only been one year since I began as a principal, but I know there are great things ahead for our school. And those great things wouldn’t exist without the community's support and belief that Resurrection is where “disciples with hope to bring” are being formed each and every day.
Blessings to you and your family,
Kevin O'Brien, Principal
Resurrection Catholic School
