Online 6-12 Program: Updates & Upcoming Events
July 11, 2020
Dear Kolbe Online 6-12 Families,
We are so thankful to have you join our school this fall. We look forward to helping your children grow in faith, knowledge, and virtue.
The interest in our online program has been amazing! We have been working hard to make sure your year runs smoothly, and our students get the instructional support they need.
New Classes: We have been adding new sections and times as needed especially in the middle school. I will be emailing families in the near future to see if you’d be open to switching to the new section. Courses that have had new days and times added include Life Science, English 6, Math 6, and First Form Latin. We anticipate a few more openings coming soon.
Parent Ambassadors: We are looking for veteran Kolbe parents to serve as Parent Ambassadors for one or more grade levels. Parent Ambassadors would be available as a resource for new parents and would also moderate grade level Faceboook groups for Kolbe parents. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to volunteer your time.
Contact Us: With the influx of new students, please note that call volume is at an all-time high. We are working on increasing staffing during this busy time but live chat is a great way to get quick questions answered. Go to www.kolbe.org to visit live chat.
