Fly in the Wall... Heard from the Hall.....
Emotions running high for our 8th graders as they experienced their final days here at SFX this week.  Many of them have been attending our school since preschool, and have made great connections to the staff and each other.
Grade 8 Student:  "Mrs. Russo, I'm not ready to leave 
St. Francis!"
Me:  "You really are.  You just don't realize it yet."

This week's adventures...


     Another wonderful week here at SFX!  We are definitely drawing close to our finish line, and we are all so excited for the rest and relaxation that our summer will bring!  The weeks are becoming whirlwinds of activity and excitement, this past week highlighted by graduation and celebration  rehearsals,  multiple field trips and jaunts to Acushnet Creamery, the Grade 8 Appreciation Dinner, the Grade 2 Wax Museum, and today's First Friday Mass.  We are so blessed to have numerous events executed so seamlessly and without any interference, or injury!  Thank you, God!

     We were pleased to welcome the month of June with the first sun that we have seen in what seems like forever, and the students thoroughly enjoyed their recess and play time outdoors!   We are hoping for many more sunny days, as next week brings our annual Field Day at Pope Park.

     Please be sure to check the school website and your teacher's classroom webpage frequently to keep on top of all the end of year exams, celebrations, trips and instructions.

God bless and have a wonderful weekend~
