Mount Saint Charles Responds to the COVID-19 outbreak

In 2019-2020, the Mount family continued to learn with at-home, online classrooms, spiritual development, and social and emotional support

In 2021-2022, Mount will be back in classrooms and on campus!

 

Want to make sure your students get the best education this fall?

We’re still enrolling for Fall 2021!

Responding with hope and education

The entire community at Mount Saint Charles Academy is responding to the coronavirus outbreak with an extraordinary response that puts students’ learning and social and emotional needs first. We look forward to returning to FULL IN-PERSON LEARNING in 2021-2022!

Administrators and teachers alike made it possible for Mount to be one of the first schools in Rhode Island to launch online classrooms and learning to ensure the community’s safety. Our teachers, students, and staff have led the way in building a community that adhered to the Mount Saint Charles mission. Learning from the past has helped us to solidify best teaching practices as we prepare to return to full in person this year. Mount feels strongly that learning is a social process and that our school community is integral to our success. 

To that end, the learning community at Mount has embraced four key pillars to ensure success, regardless of technology:

  • Learning requires individual effort and commitment
  • Academic integrity is essential
  • Respect of the learning environment is very important
  • There will be challenges, and it is our responsibility as a community to support each other in this process

Thanks to all of the teachers and leadership team for keeping our kids connected and focused. You really have impressed us. Thank you!

Staying connected to students through education – Lessons from the past

Our students continued their education without missing a beat,  via both face-to-face online instruction and independent learning tasks and assignments. Mount students started their day at their usual time, beginning with announcements and prayers before moving into their classrooms. By giving students a consistent schedule to follow, we were able to support our community’s academic needs while balancing the emotional and social needs of our students, their families, and our teachers and staff. The results speak for themselves – in the first week of online learning, our attendance rate for was greater than 99%!

Our classes were taught in the face-to-face online environment offered by Google Classroom. Assignments are shared through the Mount portal – exactly the same way they would be under normal circumstances. 

Every single day that students learned counted as a school day, and count toward graduation requirements.

Mobilizing Students to Help

Mount students are no strangers to giving back, and they stepped up again and again. Many have signed on to become Virtual Peer Assistants, and will be manning the Virtual Learning Center and helping other students with their learning and assignments. These services will continue into the future. 

Administrators, Teachers, and Staff Are Connected

We stayed connected in similar ways to the way we would under normal circumstances. Our faculty meet-ups moved online, and we will continue with remote office hours. We will continue the connections we have with administrators and teachers across the state, sharing  experiences and helping others adjust to an online learning environment.

Social-emotional support for all students

The social-emotional health is part of our everyday mission at Mount, and in the face of this crisis, there are unique challenges and opportunities. Mount school counselors have been proactive in developing tools and offering support to students and families, making sure that they are available all day and scheduling virtual appointments for those students who need them.

In addition, school counselors have assembled numerous resources that support a wide range of student needs. These resources are made available via the Mount student portal and students and families are notified directly when new resources are made available. These resources include:

  • tips about successful online learning
  • guidance for talking about and preparedness in the current crisis
  • updates about Mount

College Readiness

Despite the unique environment we find ourselves in, students and school counselors are continuing to work together toward preparing for college, particularly for juniors and seniors. That includes everything from SAT and AP testing preparation, college research and inquiries, and financial aid applications.

“It has been an amazing first day!! Thank you to the MSC staff and administration for being proactive and creative. The boys have been actively learning and I have heard collaboration and laughs all day. Thank you!!!”

November is National Native American Month and Mount Saint Charles Academy is pleased to share the following piece written by veteran English teacher, Richard Lawrence. A Most Remarkable PersonThe passing of another Columbus Day and the debate that comes with it brings to mind a memory I have of a most remarkable person that I once met while doing volunteer work in Navajo Nation in a very remote part of northeast Arizona.On this day, my students and I are scheduled to do some work on a sheep farm. Ellie - 74 years old - lives alone in a very isolated spot. She has 100 sheep and several sheepdogs, and a litter of puppies. I ask her if she has ever felt afraid.“No - I have a gun. I am fine,” she says. Ellie keeps talking about the two lambs she has lost. One was born sick. One was stolen by coyotes. She talks about the lost sheep over and over again. You can see the love she has for these animals. They are like her children.She talks about the winters and how difficult it is to feed them and to make sure that the sheep get enough water.Water – in the desert water is always an issue. There is a common well that many of the people rely on for their water needs. Ellie says the trick is to get to the well early to fill the containers because as the water is drawn, the well labors to restore the water levels.In the desert it is easy for water to quickly become a memory. Ellie sits in her chair under a tree which shades her from the hot desert sun. She braids rope as the students clean the sheep corrals.“My sister tells me that I should sell all of them. She says that my life would be so much easier. I cannot do that. The sheep, the lambs are all part of me. I have to have them in my life.”I ask her how she makes a living off the sheep. She tells us that the Navajo people use sheep for rituals. They use them for sustenance. “When we slaughter a sheep, we use everything. Nothing is wasted,” she says. “It is the way of our people.”. This is another fascinating point about the people who live here –though they live in a place where many do not have running water or electricity, they do not seem to think that they are deprived. Their lives are their lives and they try to live them with balance and understanding of the natural world. I really did not know sheep before coming on this trip. What I discover is that they move about in a frenzy when they encounter something strange and out of the ordinary. When we first arrive at Ellie’s ranch, she tries to move them out of the enclosures so that we can clean out their living areas. One sheep races out and they all rush for the gate. They bump into each other. They bump into the fence. They collide with the gate. This is a chaotic moment.“Then,” Ellie says, “there is always the challenge of getting back in the corral for the night.” The sheepdogs – They patrol the flocks with religious fervor. Typically, they are small dogs of mixed breed. “How are they trained,” I ask. Ellie tells us that there is no formal training other than that they begin to live with the sheep when they are puppies and they seem to develop a natural reaction to protect the sheep from all strangers or predators. When we leave, one of the students describes Ellie as “sweet but strong.”I describe her as being most remarkable. Richard LawrenceMount Saint Charles continues its connection with the Navajo Nation.

To my loyalist veterans,To my royalist veterans.To the people who sacrificed the most,To the people who rose a candlelight the most.I want to thank you for all you’ve done,I want to thank you for all you gave everyone.I live in a world where my right can be taken,I live in a world where my light can be taken.It’s hard to stand up and speak my mind,It’s hard to grow up and be unique to mankind.You made a choice to fight for people like me,You made my voice a light, so speakable and free.You did what others were afraid to do,You did what mothers were made to do.You fought for me to be standing here right now,You fought for me to be thanking you here right now.I can’t explain how grateful I am for you,I can’t complain how faithful I am to you.This Thursday I show my appreciation to you,This weekday I go home in moderation to you.I wave our flag high and proud,I wave our flag to the sky and loud.To those who came back and lost so much,To those whose way back was crossed and untouched.I want you to remember that I’m thankful for each day,I want you to remember that I’m grateful for each day. ...
