These are indeed challenging times in our region and in our world. In the face of these challenges, our sense of community and togetherness is more important than ever. Thank you for being a part of the Christian Brothers community.
When it became clear that COVID-19 was rearing its head in Sacramento, Christian Brothers quickly pivoted to online learning for our students. Fully embracing the Lasallian tradition of practical innovation in education, our phenomenal teachers quickly, and without hesitation, adapted lesson plans and teaching styles. After taking only one day to fully move to online platforms, they heroically continue to deliver high-level academic instruction, while working tirelessly to preserve the teacher-student relationships that are the true heart of Lasallian education.
Our students will complete their academic year online, and will be ready to move to the next academic level when school resumes in the fall. Our seniors will graduate with the credits they need to move onto college. And though our traditional commencement celebration is postponed, we are working to ensure that our seniors will have a ceremony later in the summer that commemorates and joyfully celebrates this important milestone in their lives.
Economists and civic leaders by and large are predicting the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will be significant. As our families begin to feel the true financial impact of the crisis, we know that the need for need-based tuition assistance will increase. We have established the COVID-19 Tuition Assistance Relief Fund to address the needs of families who are facing new financial realities.
We recognize that this economic downturn has impacted each of us in perhaps very different ways. There are some who wish very much to help, but no longer have the means to do so. There are some however, who have the desire to help and still have the means. If you are one of those fortunate ones, we invite you to prayerfully consider a gift toward the COVID-19 Tuition Assistance Relief Fund at Christian Brothers. You will help ensure that those families who have been hard hit economically will not be forced to leave CB for financial reasons.
If you are not able to give at this time, we ask you to give a different kind of gift. Please keep Christian Brothers High School and all of our students in your prayers.
We are blessed to have a community that shares in the mission and the work of this school. And we are blessed that this community includes you. As you pray for us, please know that the Christian Brothers High School community is holding you in our thoughts and prayers.
