RE Distance Learning Timeline

FRIDAY (AUGUST 7): RE DISTANCE LEARNING WEBPAGE MOVED

In preparation for launching the new Family Faith Formation program for the 2020-2021 academic year, Mr. H. renamed the RE Distance Learning page to RE Spring 2020 Distance Learning and moved it to an archival position at the bottom of the Faith Formation menu structure.

TUESDAY (JULY 14): DISTANCE LESSON 3 OFFICIALLY CANCELLED

Mr. H. updated the Distance Learning pages for the Loved, Called, and Formed programs to make it official that the third distance lesson is cancelled with the following text: "So, I didn't get this one done! When I would have, the parish reopened for Masses and I helped create media to teach the community what we're doing to be safe at Mass. Then, I got busy getting Summer First Holy Communions organized. So, I'm cancelling the third distance lesson and not counting it as needed. Instead we're now focusing our attention on getting ready for the new program we are developing for the fall. More information on that will be sent before the end of July."

THURSDAY (JUNE 18): FIRST HOLY COMMUNION RETREAT RELEASED & MASSES ANNOUNCED

Mr. H. published the At Home First Holy Communion Retreat (as Lesson 3) on the Blessed Distance webpage as well as posted the 2020 Summer FHC Mass Info Packet to answer questions. He also created a new webpage just to display that information.

THURSDAY (JUNE 18): PROGRAM PAGES SIMPLIFIED

To make it easier for families to find the Distance Learning Lessons and not be distracted by past information, Mr. H. removed the calendars and Zoom information sections on the Program Pages to allow for quicker access to the lessons.

THURSDAY (MAY 14): CHURCH REOPENING ANNOUNCEMENT, LESSON 3 DELAY

Mr. H. provided the following YouTube video announcement in which he explained the Church's Phased Reopening and that preparations to resume public Masses means a slight delay in the delivery of Distance Lesson 3.

THURSDAY (APRIL 23)

Mr. H. created this new page to hold a complete historical record (in reverse timeline) of St. Andrew's Religious Education program's response to the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic while simplifying the RE Distance Learning webpages to make them more user friendly for families.

Also posted today were:

RE Quarantine Online Calendar (revised Apr 23)

Confirmation Quarantine Online Calendar (revised Apr 23)

Quarantine Zoom Schedule (revised Apr 23)

These calendars reflected a change to spread the release of the online learning experiences for the children in Religious Education programs over much of May, recognizing the reality that as schools were officially closed for the remainder of this school year the children would be home doing distance learning all May anyway and this adjustment gives families more time to complete these lessons (not to mention giving Mr. H. more time to create them!).

FRIDAY (APRIL 17)

Mr. H. posted Adult Introduction videos to each of the program webpages below. Click on your child's program below and check out these videos that explain what makes a great catechetical experience.

One final delay notification: so, my desktop computer (the one at home that I use for all green screen video editing) died! Thus, I had to rebuild it from scratch (erasing the whole hard drive, reinstalling the operating system, all of it) and that cost me a full day of work. But, the good news, the computer is working better than it has in years and all systems are go! I hope to have the actual lesson videos to you by tomorrow (Saturday, April 18) evening. I thank you for your patience and understanding as I figure things out. - Mr. H.

Wednesday, April 8

New announcement: Confirmation will NOT be using Google Classroom. (I realized I was over complicating things!)

Instead, every program will ONLY be using new RE Distance Learning web pages on this website.

Thus, Confirmation students can click here to go directly to their RE Distance Confirmation page for everything they need.

Monday, April 6

Confirmation Students are asked to join a Google Classroom for the distribution and completion of their Online Turn Ins.

Confirmation Google Classroom Code: rrgwwo5

NOTE: While Lee County Schools are using Google Classroom for distance learning, you might NOT be able to use that email account for this class. Thus, if the code doesn't work in the Google Classroom you're using then you need to use another (or create a new personal) google account.
