The Kindergarten students were asked to do a persuasive writing. Saritah wrote a story called "Clean Up." She even added a song.
"In these uncertain times, Stone Ridge has been our constant. The online learning has been seamless. While it has been a different way to learn, our daughter still feels challenged and encouraged. As my husband and I get used to working remotely, it has been so comforting to not have to worry about our daughter’s education. She is resilient and thriving because Stone Ridge has adapted and marched on with teaching her in this new normal. This peace of mind is priceless."
– Traci (Middle School parent)
"We are awed by the way the Stone Ridge community has come together on so many levels in this time of crisis. Teachers and staff have made the transition to a virtual learning environment seamless for all three of my girls. Parents have been supporting each other, providing sanity checks and much-needed moments of laughter. And the girls have found high-tech ways to keep their relationships with friends strong. We are blessed to be part of this community!"
– Melissa (Middle and Lower School parent)
At Stone Ridge, we are committed to girls education through virtual teaching and learning. All students partake in their classes through both synchronous and asynchronous lessons, complete assignments which are submitted virtually, and conference with their teachers through a variety of tools. In synchronous classes, students meet their teacher live on Google Meet. In asynchronous classes, students are provided with a pre-recorded video made by the teacher to impart the lesson. In both modes, students are assigned various assignments, projects, readings, etc. which are then submitted to the teacher for feedback. We provide students with many opportunities to connect with their teachers and counsellors for their emotional and social growth as well as host a wide array of community gatherings to keep our vibrant community supported and connected.

Enjoy an Upper School Virtual Concert
The Upper School Chorus recorded a performance virtually. This required some logistical planning, but they all rose to the challenge superbly. With a click track playing through headphones or earbuds (to make sure the tempo was consistent) each singer recorded their individual parts as a voice memo on their phone. They then sent Mr. Weston the individual recordings and he combined them resulting in this terrific performance. They also sent selfies of themselves in their various learning environments, showing
As a Sacred Heart school, our genuine relationship of mutual interaction is at the core of our education. We are not able to physically be together, but we are still connected in a relationship and in our mission of love. Drawing on that love of Christ and love of others, we become more courageous and confident. Love is our Mission.
Let us spread this love of our Sacred Heart family virtually by placing the badge in your email signature or as your photo icon in your email or social media OR physically by dropping a happy note in the mailboxes of neighbors...so that we may all grow together, close apart, holding virtual hands.
