Dear KICS family,
We started this journey of KICS Learning Continues nearly three weeks ago. This was not something any of us signed up for when we started at KICS this year. That said, this is where we and the rest of the world are - adjusting to life with COVID19. Let me say to each of you, we have adjusted well. To say we are proud of you is an understatement.
Teachers, words are not enough to describe the appreciation we all feel. Thank you for the tireless effort you have put in to make this an enjoyable and meaningful learning process for each student. Thank you.
Parents, well done. You all love having KICS staff teach your kids. KICS Learning Continues has required a new level of partnership. You have done well. Thank you.
Students, we are so proud of you. Whether you are a senior or a Pre-Kite, you have each risen to the challenge. Thank you. You have all adjusted to these unprecedented times and have done well.
Thank you to each of you for how you have all adjusted, flexed, and have stepped into this season with grace.
We are now at the end of this initial 3-week stretch. Tomorrow at 4 p.m. we will officially begin the Memorial time at KICS. During these days of Remembrance, we will be taking a break from school, and in a different sense, KICS will be closed, from tomorrow at 4 p.m until we resume on Tuesday, April 14th. Primary students may have activities that teachers provide, and secondary will not have any additional work. Just what is normal in their weekly cycle. This means they have two weeks to complete this.
My encouragement to all of us is to rest from KICS Learning Continues. This has stretched each of us.
Take this time to Remember the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi. Remember the past with honor, and remember the great steps that have been taken over these last 26 years. One of the greatest examples of strength and courage in human history. Remember Christ and his sacrifice on the Cross during Good Friday, and His Resurrection. His resurrection allows us to live as ones with hope, because of the hope of Jesus Christ. The greatest sacrifice ever made, that has paid for the sins of the world, and allows each of us to have eternal life.
Be blessed. Stay strong. Rest.
KICS Learning Continues will commence on Tuesday, April 14th, and will continue at least through April 19th. We will continue to follow the lead of the Government as they put measures in place to contain the virus.
So thankful for each of you. Thankful to be part of this amazing KICS family.
God bless you.
