“Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.” Saint Francis de Sales
September 29, 2016
Dear St. Stan’s Families:
Saint Francis de Sales offers us quite a bit to ponder in a single statement. The lessons we teach students are not simply in math, history and English; they are lessons in independence, inner strength, and how we relate with those around us. Quite often the later lessons become the most valuable in the long run. As September ends we are looking forward to our walk a thon and movie night. During the day (today 9/29) any changes in plans due to weather will be communicated to you through Honeywell Alerts. We are hoping that students will be able to raise a minimum of $30.00 each for our school. This will give us the opportunity to complete our reading room (off the cafeteria), purchase Chrome books for student use, and purchase new software that will help our teachers differentiate instruction for students to help them be successful.
The month of October will see our first school Mass on the seventh, additionally, grades three through eight will be attending Rosary and Benediction during the month. Middle school students will begin the St. Peter’s Family life program, middle school goes on their annual field trip, our PreK through third graders will be part of a fire prevention assembly and the whole school will celebrate Halloween (more details to follow).
This is a reminder, that as of Monday, October 3rd all students must begin wearing winter uniforms. You will be called to bring your child the correct uniform, if your child comes to school in any components of the spring uniform. If you have any questions about this please check the handbook or call the office.
Finally, October 14, 2016 is the HSA’s largest fundraiser of the year… Coach Bingo. If you can support it with a donation of new items for the tricky tray or by attending this fun-filled evening, we would be so very grateful. As always you remain in my prayers.
In His Peace,
Elena Malinconico, Principal
