Through the rain, Spring Concert shines
Last Tuesday, May 15th, Mrs. Phillips' song list, the St. Augustine Band (led by Mr. Cuccia from Paul Effman Music Services), St. Augustine Dance Team, students, and faculty put on a show for the ages in the St. Augustine Cathedral! From violins tuning to warthogs crooning (5th Grade's fun performance from the Lion King ), the Cathedral wowed. To see more highlights, scroll below or check out our Facebook page!
Teacher Feature!
Mr. Federico Padovan
This week's Teacher Feature is our tech guru, Mr. Fredy Padovan. Fredy joined our St. Augustine education crew at the end of last year and has been working closely with the staff monthly. Fredy is a "national expert on creating a blending learning environment" in schools and has done so, helping to incorporate our expanding pool of tech tools.

"Fredy was fabulous," says Dr. Bo, St. Augustine principal. "He brought lots of great ideas and showed the teachers how technology can really enhance learning."

Thank you, Mr. Padovan, for all your hard work with our staff!
Spring Concert
With an incredible showcase of the talent at St. Augustine, the concert was a great send-off for our fabulous music teacher, Mrs. Phillips, who retires this year!
