We are so thankful for the parents we have in our community. They persevered through lock down last spring and have trusted us to deliver a strong academic program to their children this school year. We've missed having them on campus this year and look forward to the day when they can return.
We've collected quotes, surveys, videos, photos, and more to give some insight into our parents' perspectives throughout this year.
WHAT WERE SOME SILVER LININGS FROM COVID-19?
Ask many people what was positive from this past year and you'll hear a lot of people say they were appreciative of the amount of family time they had. We asked our families to submit photos of quality time spent together. Click the photos to view them larger.
WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART OF THE COVID-19 LOCKDOWN?
After accepting the new normal, the Franz family’s thoughts turned to those who could not do the same – people without safe homes or those whose jobs meant they couldn't avoid the risks of the pandemic.
COVID Stories is a collection of interviews with community members who talk about living and working during a pandemic. We interviewed Allyson Judge, Gala Chair, to talk about living during a pandemic as a parent and running a virtual Gala.
WHAT HAVE YOU MISSED THE MOST BECAUSE OF COVID-19?
Jr. kindergarten loves exploring family traditions from all over the world. Several families have shared videos about Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa, and even a traditional Hmong recipe for egg rolls! Thank you for all of the families who have shared their traditions with us! pic.twitter.com/TTmsWpXxtQ— Congressional School (@Colts1939) May 25, 2021
