Over the past few weeks, we have been reading the novel A Long Walk to Water which opens our eyes to the Sudanese refugee crisis and water crisis that impacts Sudan today.
It’s that time of year again! Christmas is right around the corner. Why not be part of this important fundraiser and at the same time, give our children the opportunity to do a little Christmas shopping for the people they care about.
Our Christmas Boutique will be held on Wednesday, November 28th and Thursday, November 29th. Prices for all gift items will again be $5.00 or less.
We will also be selling raffles for exciting prizes: NBA merchandise, and more to be announced. As always, these raffles will be sold at lunch and at all Christmas shows. Raffle prices will vary from $2 each (3 for $5) and $10 each (3 for $20).
The children will enjoy Christmas shopping without their parents.
CLASS SHOPPING SCHEDULE:
|Wednesday, November 28th
||Thursday, November 29th
Currently, the class is working on their “Explorers Project”. We completed the unit on the European Era of Exploration, so to reinforce this knowledge, the students have chosen an explorer to research and create a holiday in remembrance of him.
The 7th graders enjoyed a Thanksgiving “feast” together.
VIRTUS: Protecting God’s Children for Adults
is a child safety program which helps parishes create child-safe environments and empowers caring adults to protect children by making adults more aware of the ways children and adults interact with each other.
This course is mandatory for all adults who work/volunteer in the Church/Academy. For your convenience we will be offering it here at St. Francis of Assisi.
