Thank you for your generosity to those in need!
We are doing our best to maintain normalcy as the Christmas excitement builds daily at SFX! Our students and teachers continue to prepare for the coming of Our Lord and Savior at Christmas, while pressing on with academic endeavors. While we light the third candle on the Advent wreath this Gaudete Sunday, the joy and anticipation heightens, as this coming week we present the Nativity of Our Lord in Pageant and Song!  Thursday evening at 6:30pm, our Kindergarten through Grade 5 students will get us into the "Christmas spirit" under the direction of Miss Bonnie, Mr. Borges and Mrs. Shaughnessy. Please plan on joining us in a celebration and reflection on the true meaning of Christmas! 

Thank you, once again, for your heartwarming display of generosity, as we provided gift cards to our Advent families. Our students and teachers created beautiful “spiritual bouquets” consisting of handmade cards, prayers, and religious items to lift the spirits of these families in need this Christmas. The outpouring of love to those less fortunate has been quite a moving experience for our school family this Advent. Thank you for reinforcement of the virtue of charity with your children... we are so blessed!

Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
~ Mrs. Russo
