January 2019 News & Calendar

Dear SFA Families,

Each year as we celebrate Christmas, we remember the wonderful people in our lives that make each day truly meaningful for all of us.  Your beautiful children are the reason why we do our work.  They bring us great joy and remind us daily of the wonders of the Christ-child.  Their smiles, their excitement, and their promise of a hope-filled future enrich our lives and brighten our spirits.  Not a day goes by without some surprising magical moment that is given to us from a child.  Every one of them sparkles in their own light, and we love them all!  We thank you for sharing the most precious gift of your children with us.  Continue reading “January 2019 News & Calendar”

December 2018 News & Calendar

Dear SFA Families:

December is that wonderful time of year – time to await the birth of Jesus, time to be with family and friends, and time to spread the joy of Christmas with everyone you meet.

PROGRESS REPORTS will be distributed on Thursday, December 6th from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  Terra Nova results for Grades 3-8 will also be distributed at this time.  Parents are asked to enter through the main entrance on 46th Street.  Together with your child’s report, you will have a good indication of their overall academic performance.  “One of the strongest motivators for students is the opportunity to look back and see their progress. In this way, students can understand their learning goals, recognize their own skill level in relation to the goals, and take responsibility for reaching the goals.  By involving students in their own success, they become a more active partner in their learning.” (Educational Leadership, Vol.63, No. 3).
