The new virtual learning context in which we all find ourselves challenges each person to learn something new. Students and teachers must find new ways to remain connected. School leaders must find new ways to lead their communities. In a recent webinar that included principals from across the United States and sponsored by the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA), we began our time together with the following appropriate prayer (sometimes attributed to Sir Francis Drake):
In this unexpected time of uncertainty and disruption, we are being challenged to look at how we use our time in all-new ways. The onset of this global pandemic and the necessary efforts that we’ve accepted in order to care for the most vulnerable in our society have jarred us into a new mindset that isn’t life as we know it. How might we see this disruption as more than just deviance from the way our lives were and begin to think about how we might see light at the end of the tunnel as we embrace the new routines that might have a life after the pandemic worth saving?
Faithful to Catholic Tradition and to our Dominican heritage of scholarship and service, Bishop Lynch High School promotes the development of the total person by bringing together a diverse community in a rigorous, college preparatory environment where students are taught to strive for excellence, seek truth, and work for justice in the world. - Founded in 1963
