Even though distance learning is neither optimal nor desirable, our teachers are putting great effort into gathering new ideas and sharing successes with each other. Last Saturday they participated in an on-line “Idea Marketplace,” where they exchanged ideas for successful online learning. The Educational Council, Lithuania’s Ministry of Education, and individual Lithuanian schools in the U.S. all share information, websites, videos, and lessons to help our students and teachers.Please remember – parents are a child’s first and most important teachers . Let’s join our efforts toward success.

The first semester is ending this Saturday. Students will not be receiving traditional report cards. An evaluation of their progress, attendance, and participation will be sent to parents before Jan. 23rd. Please look for it in your email. Second semester tuition is now due. Guidelines are found in this website.

The upper classes participated in a wonderful online presentation of the events of January 13,1991, when Lithuania rose up against the USSR. Maj. Albertas Daugirdas , a participant in these events as a young man, gave our students a behind-the-scenes look at the fortifications of the Lithuanian Parliament on that fateful day. We are grateful to him and to acting consul Agne Gureviciene for making this presentation possible.

The third graders are preparing to receive First Communion and Reconciliation sometime in the spring. Viktorija Gedviliene will be their Religion teacher . Please inform Maryte if you are interested in these classes.

Stay healthy and safe,
