Distance Learning at Judge

Judge Memorial Catholic High School is continuing to provide guidance and instruction to the students entrusted in our care through distance learning at this time. Cura Personalis, care for the whole person, remains core to our school mission and will endure during this experience. Please explore the resources and supports we have in place for the variety of areas of growth within the school.

Distance Learning Leadership:
Since mid-March, teachers have seamlessly utilized Canvas, Google Apps and Skyward to communicate with students and deliver curriculum at home. Our seasoned faculty has figured out creative ways to hold live lectures, solve math and science problems, conduct the fine and language arts and maintain physical education all while preserving relationships and community with Judge Memorial students. Beyond Canvas, teachers have long used the following online tools, which is paying off now:
  • Canvas conferencing
  • Flipgrid
  • Instagram
  • Nearpod
  • Khan Academy
  • WebAssign
  • Youtube
  • Talky.io
  • Zoom
  • Screencast o matic
  • ASU Digital Learning
  • Remind app

FROM THE COUNSELING CENTER

 

We, the Counseling Team, acknowledge the anxiety, fear, stress, and sadness surrounding our current circumstances. Through the past four weeks, we have been in touch with many students and parents — and we have listened. We are hearing and understanding the many varied ways this crisis is affecting individuals and families. 

We believe we will get through this challenging period together. As the strong Judge Memorial community, we are, we will continue to wrap love, faith and support around all of us.   


RESOURCES

If you, a loved one, friend or classmate is struggling emotionally, reach out for help. Nobody needs to struggle alone. There is always someone to talk to. Talk to friends and family.  It’s OK to ask for help. It’s OK to say “I notice you are struggling- let’s talk.”

Message from College Counseling about COVID-19 Outbreak:

The coronavirus outbreak is changing how schools teach and students learn all around the world. These changes will have lasting effects on school communities and on students’ academic records, standardized testing opportunities, extracurricular activities, and learning experiences outside of school. We want to reassure all future college applicants that a community’s response to the outbreak—and students' personal circumstances associated with it—will not negatively affect a student's chances of admission. 

We will get through this together and remember it's the whole world adjusting to this new way of learning and colleges will be flexible and compassionate about family circumstances.

Pillars of Judge Instagram Contest

Last spring students were asked to participate in a student photo contest! Every few days we challenged them to post how they were staying virtually engaged based on our 4 Pillars of Cura Personalis: Academic, Physical, Spiritual and Social.

We asked them to post a picture about how they were working from home and tag @judgepride with the hashtag #JMakingItWork .  We had one winner per week from each category who won their choice of the new Supreme-inspired hoodie or fleece blanket. 

PHYSICAL

 
Despite being home, our kids are still moving and dancing. Enjoy this video, stay healthy and remember — Save the Last Dance for Me! 
 
 
The Weekly Challenge for Fit for Life was to learn disc golf through a tutorial then to play. It's a great social distancing sport since you can play anywhere and just touch your own equipment. Students were told they could modify with what they had at home — even socks and buckets would work!
