On September 13, 2019 our newly formed Student Council for this school year was installed during our Opening School Mass. Students from grades 6-8 compose the 9-member board of the student government. The final selection was made by the principal and middle school teachers. Criteria for nomination is based on leadership, responsibility, and the ability to relate to the faculty, staff, and the student body. The term of office is one year. The council meets monthly, discusses current school issues, and makes suggestions for additional school activities. Mrs. Cavera & Miss Biscaglia serve as moderators for the student council.
Congratulations to the 2019-20 SFACA Student Council, Katie Jampol, Angelopio Graci, Jayden Abela, Jordan Ceron, Isabella Cullinane, Grace Vano, Lawrence DiVittorio, Damia Pan and Katarina Mijat

Fourth grade students have started on the right foot. We are working very hard and we are in our first full week of school. I am so proud of how the students have acclimated to our classroom rules.
In math, we have started chapter 1 and we are learning about place and value of numbers. We have started learning about the geography of New York State, recognizing the important rivers and landforms of our state. We completed our first map project and the students enjoyed learning and highlighting the important facts of our state. We visited the new Stem Lab and learned about safety first and the importance of listening during our lab activities. We began our chapter 1 in Religion knowing that Jesus was both human and divine and how we can be disciples of Christ.
As promised, here is the list of books that we will be reading throughout the course of the school year. I will let the students know two weeks prior to needing the book in class. The book should be brought to school daily as we will be reading and having class discussions during class time. Reading assignments will be given for class-work and homework. (more…)
