As you already know, we have had to move learning at BVM to your home. BVM, as well as the rest of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia school community, are using digital tools to continue to educate your child. While each teacher may have different preferences in how to carry this out, lesson plans and assignments will be sent to each student, and teachers may utilize resources such as Flipgrid, Google Classroom, and Zoom to create a more communal feel while we are separated at home.
