Procedures for Picking Up Graduation Materials & Personal Items
Earlier this week, Sterling Brown sent an email to seniors and parents outlining procedures for picking up graduation materials and personal items, and returning any Prep property they have borrowed. Please make sure your son schedules an appointment for pick up on Wednesday, May 13. If your son isn't able to complete this himself then we would ask that someone in your family do this for him. Contact Sterling Brown if there are any special circumstances we should be aware of that may make this process challenging for your family.

Omaha Catholic High School Virtual Art Show
The Omaha area Catholic High Schools have been collaborating on an end-of-year art show for the last 25 years. We typically enjoy the professional gallery space at Hot Shops galleries in NoDo Downtown Omaha. This year all area Catholic High Schools were determined not to let this great tradition falter, so the community adapted our first virtual show!
This unprecedented situation has presented challenges for many schools to participate. Please vote by liking your favorite images, and consider sending a comment for the artist. Thank you for your support of our talented young artists.

COVID-19 AND ONLINE LEARNING UPDATES
Online Education Survey for Students
All students have been asked to complete a survey about their experience with online education over the last two months. Their thoughtful and detailed responses will be used to help us improve our strategies for how we use technology to facilitate teaching and learning. Please check with your son and remind him to complete the survey if he has not already done so. We will share some results of the survey with parents next week.
