Bridges Newsletter 4-9-2020
Dear St. Matthias families,
Despite our unusual circumstances, we are in Holy Week and will soon be celebrating Easter. Our extended families may be with us by way of Skype or Zoom, our worship may be via Face-book or YouTube, yet we will focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus and rejoice with our immediate family members on the Good News that life does not end and we look forward to an eternity of bliss in the Heavenly City. I pray that your Easter celebration will be joy filled and that the love in your home and hearts will be stronger than any worry about sickness, jobs, finances, and the disruption of our day-to-day lives. I pray you enjoy your children and take a break on Easter Sunday to focus on all the blessings and goodness in your lives.
Sincerely in Christ,
HOLY WEEK & EASTER SERVICES AT ST MATTHIAS
Services will be live streamed on the church Facebook page:
Holy Thursday Mass -7 PM

LOOKING AHEAD TO LEARNING
On Tuesday, April 14, the fourth quarter begins and online instruction will resume. Many children have continued working this past week, some catching up, some just wanting to excel. Teachers will be communicating their learning goals for the quarter and the week’s plan on Tuesday morning. This will include schedules for online classes.
Families whose children do not have access to the Internet or a device to “attend” online classes, are urged to contact Mrs. Kelly at Jkelly@st.matthias.org. Lessons will be recorded so students who need to work in the evening or on weekends can still participate. We will continue to use Seesaw (make sure your app is updated), Google classroom, ALEKS (grades 5-8), Mathletics, and IXL.
Report cards will be mailed early next week. Parents will be informed by text when they are in the mail.
Have A Happy And Blessed Easter
