Eight years ago, Mrs. Browne was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Scared she might lose her life, she made a pact with God. If He were to spare her, she would always praise His name. Michelle Powers from NET TV produced this report in October of 2016.
You were always there for us from the start. You are a special teacher who’s taught us with your heart.

I know this a difficult time for you and the rest of us as we try to cope with this pandemic that has befallen us.
The last time I saw your beautiful children was on Wednesday, March 11th and I cherish the memories of their adorable faces. I miss them dearly already and will hold them and you in my prayers.
I know it is going to be difficult for you to keep your children occupied during the day. So I would like to tell
you a few things to keep their skills up during this time when we are off. We will be closed from March 16th – April 20th until further notice.
Find time to read books with your kids. Encourage your children to talk about pictures predict what will happen next in a story and what characters feel. Take your children outside if possible, and talk about whatever catches your children’s attention as an exercise in language skills.
I know you might be tempted to hand over your Iphone or Ipad to your children to quiet them but remember too much of this is not good for their language and cognitive development. Instead give them Playdoh, art supplies , audio books or even homemade recordings of you reading their favorite books.
Try to keep as much normalcy for your children as you can, while explaining to them this is how things will have to be for a while.
Remind them that I love them very much and I am thinking of them everyday until I see them again.

Here are some helpful learning websites for you to use with your children.
***I kindly request that all my students and their families put special time aside, at 9 am, 3 pm, and 7 pm to start a special prayer circle for our school community and beyond. Jesus and our Blessed Mother always listen to their little children. *** As we pray let us think about with all our hearts, all those suffering, all those caring for the sick, and for the protection of all. Below is the prayer created from our beloved Pope Francis to Mary during the Corona Virus Pandemic, that I ask we all pray together .
