Consortium Annual Report: Our Omaha Catholic schools get through the pandemic together
2020-2021: A second pandemic school year
Our community is many things. One is resilient. Through the many obstacles presented over the last few years, students continue to benefit from a Consortium education that challenges them to be academic leaders in the classroom and servant leaders in their faith.
You’re invited to read the digital version below, which is full of facts and stories of how our six schools – Dual Language Academy, Holy Cross, Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Bernadette, Sts. Peter and Paul and St. Thomas More – provide excellent and safe learning environments.
Please read our latest annual report to discover more about our story and those who help make it happen.
Stories like that of the Family Enrichment program at Sts. Peter and Paul. . .
Now with two years under its belt, SPP continues its program in partnership with the National Center for Families to support and improve literacy outcomes for English language learners. This past year, 20 families were enrolled between two cohorts who commit seven hours per week.
Parents/guardians have the opportunity to attend English classes and parenting classes at no charge, as well as receive additional support in navigating local community resources available to them. Parent participants also get to attend occasional classes with their children to improve literacy.
Many of our families create spiritual goals as well as academic and family goals. One common goal is to pray the rosary daily as a family. Another family is working toward reading the Bible more with their children. Still another is to learn the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be in English, as a step toward being able to participate in Mass in English.
