TUESDAY, JANUARY 29
Today we communicate the value of Catholic education in a multicultural society. We share information
about the significant contributions that Catholic schools make to the nation and their role in preparing students
to be good citizens in a globally diverse society. We pray for the nation and recognize that we are all citizens
who are part of a global community and have contributions to make. Grades 6-8 will attend a presentation by
Mrs. Andrea Cilento, LMSW, entitled Embracing Multiculturalism: A Look into Ourselves and Our World”. Parents
of Grades 6-8 are welcome to attended at 1:45 p.m. in MCH
Enjoy the following video presentation created by our Newspaper Staff students about what life is like for a St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy Student.
MONDAY, JANUARY 28 A central aspect of Catholic Education is learning the importance of service to others. When students take part in service activities – both local and beyond – they demonstrate the values and faith they gain through their Catholic education and learn how to make the world a better place. When they observe how others serve the community, they gain an appreciation for how they can continue to serve others their entire lives. This year SFACA’S service act helped to serve the needs of a special Girl Scout Troop. Troop 6000 is designed for girls in the NYC shelter system. Each class created a gift bag for one of eleven girls who are members of our local Troop 6000. These gift bags consisted of needs and wishes of the girls ranging in age from 6-13. The bags are on display in the school lobby during CSW. Classroom visits for all grades were held from 8:30 a.m. – 9:10 a.m.
