Roger Bacon Students Make Most Out of Time at Home
As Roger Bacon High School students adjust to the new reality of online learning and time away from their classmates, teachers and extracurricular activities, many Spartans are finding new ways to reach out to others and serve the community.
When she discovered that many nursing homes were beginning to limit visitors, Olivia Radecki and her younger brothers decided to start writing letters to people living there.
Olivia explained, “During these next few weeks, my younger brothers and I are going to be writing letters and sending drawings to people in nursing homes. Because they can’t have any visitors due to the virus, we thought we might as well brighten up their days! So far I have written two letters. My little brothers are doing many coloring pages and my mom is writing notes on the
back. It’s a nice way to spend our free time and make others happy.”
Maleah Sherman stepped up to help her family while her younger cousins are out of school.
“After hearing the news about Roger Bacon High School closing the school for three weeks, I was very stressed. I was trying to figure out how to make up work, regain my health, and set up for online schooling,” Sherman said. “As the days went on, I began to see the blessings this time could offer. Having this online schooling has given me the time to be productive at home. Over this time, I am tutoring my little cousins and helping them with their online schooling while their parents work. It feels good to know that I can help my family during this stressful time.”
