Our Day 1 Zoom Star: Gus the Cat!

Our Day 1 Zoom Star: Gus the Cat!

Teacher Mrs. Ashleigh (Ward) Brown '00 with her cat Gus preparing for Day 2 of remote learning.

Gus has been participating in her English class sessions on Zoom.

He LOVES to see the kids (and himself) onscreen. He’s a big hit with the students, especially the freshmen. He’s a four year old ragdoll cat; 20 lbs. He’s available upon request for some emotional screen therapy! 

Thank you to all those who made Day 1 of remote learning a success!

We are incredibly thankful and endlessly proud of our students for your continued cooperation throughout this remote learning process. Together, alongside our dedicated faculty, you’ve gone above and beyond to ensure that the continuation of education from classroom to a remote learning environment is successful. Yesterday was a great first day. Let’s keep up the good work!

Check out some initial reactions from parents...

“Thank you Central Catholic! First day of virtual classes is a major success in my home! My senior and sophomore are praising it! They are both very positive about this experience and feel good knowing they are still connected with their teachers and classmates! Great job everyone!”

“Thank you all for your love, leadership, and timeless hours you’ve all put into preparation… looking out for our children’s emotional well-being. Thank you for giving them time, so they are as ready as possible to continue in their education.”

“I wanted to take a minute to send a quick note of appreciation to… the entire CC faculty for your leadership and communications during a time of unprecedented complexity and uncertainty. The plan you put in place to offer synchronous learning was amazing. (My child) is enjoying his first day of on-line classes… it’s amazing how quickly your team acted to connect students and faculty.  Proud to be part of this community.”
