Those families who are part of our Half-Day PK4 program have been given information directly from their teacher regarding the schedule.

 

During the week of August 24th, we will schedule appointments to welcome students and parents back to campus to meet the teacher and receive books and devices. More specific details will follow.
Due to our delayed start, there have been changes to our calendar.  CLICK HERE for the approved calendar.
Those families who choose in-person learning on campus will be required to fill out a waiver. This waiver will be signed electronically through the new Magnus App. The language for the waiver may be found on page 9 of the updated Return to School Plan.

The advisory program at St. Rita is designed as a proactive system of support for students to help them develop academically, socially and emotionally. Students meet each morning with their advisor (middle school) or homeroom teacher (lower school) to check in on well-being and prepare for the day. As an extension of our previous focus circle program, advisory will be where much of our social and emotional learning and discussion of virtue will begin. Your child’s advisor or homeroom teacher will be not only their mentor, but also advocate at school and communicate with parents and other teachers about student needs.

The particular challenges of living through a global pandemic make it even more important to give students a daily opportunity to communicate their social and emotional needs within the framework of virtue. St. Rita recognizes that this focus on relationships and well being allows all students to begin their day ready to learn.

CLASSLINK

The IT Department will be implementing ClassLink software this Fall.  ClassLink is a single sign-on software that integrates with RenWeb to allow access to St. Rita educational software with a single password. This will make software navigation easier, faster, and increase learning time for our students.

BEHAVIORFLIP

BehaviorFlip, a restorative behavior management system, will be utilized by St. Rita School this year.  It is a program that helps build a culture of empathy and responsibility by effectively tracking and managing student behaviors.  BehaviorFlip provides high quality social-emotional data to create student snapshots for administrators, instructors, families and students.  Teachers gain the ability to make student referrals for academic, behavioral, and social/emotional concerns.  They can document positive and negative behaviors and receive ideas for intervention strategies.  Students can anonymously report bullying.  School leaders gain insight into the culture of their school by observing student, class-wide, and grade-level trends in order to make data-based decisions.  BehaviorFlip as a tool aligns with St. Rita School’s social-emotional curriculum and Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline practices.
