Thank you, Lord, for the gift of the beautiful weather this week, as it finally feels like spring!
A busy school week was culminated by two VERY exciting events that took place today. First and foremost, we began the process of formulating the
St. Francis Graduating Class of 2025!!!
Many of our current preschoolers, as well as some new students to the fold, were administered our kindergarten screening today. These students will become Mrs. Jason and Mrs. O'Malley's class this fall and we are so happy for these students and their families! The second event that occurred today, which also caused quite an increase in energy and buzz, was our annual
chool History Fair.
Each year we are ALL so very impressed by the amount of work that is evident and the knowledge that is demonstrated by our students... this year was exceptional! A number of parents and judges complimented our school, our teachers, and most especially our students' ability to
nt their topics in such a mature and professional manner. Great job middle schoolers!
Thank you once again to our School Events Committee, and more specifically to Keri (and Chris) Borba who orchestrated a Teacher Appreciation Week for SUPERHEROES! Our teachers were treated in various ways throughout the week, demonstrating our great appreciation for all that they do for our school and the students entrusted to our care.
WE HAVE SUCH AN AMAZING STAFF HERE AT SFX!
Next week's highlights include an "All United Day" on Monday, planned and hosted by our NJHS members, a Grade One Author Share, an NJHS Induction Ceremony and of course, the anticipated.... Musical Spectacular!
Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
~ Mrs. Russo
