Principal’s Highlights

 

PreK3, PreK4 and Kindergarten Classes celebrated St.Francis of Assisi by  participating in a “Blessing of the Stuffed Animals” on October 4th with Fr. Ryan. Currently, they are discovering what a pumpkin looks like on the inside and journaling their discoveries.

 

Grade 1: Mrs. Lee’s class gave impressive oral presentations of their October books report.

 

Grade 4: Ms. Maher’s class is hard at work on a student newsletter. They are also collecting old newspapers for the local Sean Casey Animal Rescue.  

 

Middle School Math: Students are doing real world applications of math through creating integer games, budget planning for parties, and scientific notation related to the solar system.

 

Fundraising: The school has raised $2225 for Hurricane Harvey relief. The Cake and Pie Sale raised $2125.00, N.U.T. Day $ 223, 8th Grade Bake Sale $ 156. Upcoming, we have the Haunted House, Halloween Walk-a-thon, 7th Grade Bake Sale and Wrap Sale. The plans for fundraising in 2017-18 will go to putting a sink in the art room, painting supplies to make building improvements and murals. We are aiming to raise money for new chromebooks for the computer lab and computer building kits. If you are a parent who loves to paint and you would like to create a mural or paint an inspirational quote in the buidling please email me!

 

Parents: On October 3rd, Parents joined me in the cafeteria for Coffee with the Principal. I will be planning to hold another event in December. Also, check your online calendars for exciting Parent workshops being held by our PDHP school counselors.

 

Check the website calendar for more upcoming events. Thank you families for your support!
