We children are usually very busy working, playing and singing about many different subjects. Our religion lessons cover God’s creation, Jesus God’s Son, Mary, His Mother, special people called saints, and special holy days.
We are beginning to learn to read through sounds, words, and stories. We listen to many stories that take us to wonderful places to meet special people.
Our math work is all about numbers, shapes, measuring, money and how we can use all of that in our lives each day.
We also talk about holidays, communities, workers, citizenship, and history in social studies, additions which help us to become more well-rounded.
The seasons guide our science lessons: fall happenings, winter weather, spring and summer. Of course, we talk about the healthy habits we try to have so that we can be in school every day. Music, art, gym, library and Italian are wonderful.
Our days are busy and each one helps us to grow in responsibility, independence, and maturity as we make new friends and learn to treat others as Jesus would want. Our teachers help to guide us through the year.
We miss you all terribly, so we decided to make this video message to let you know how much!
Enjoy the Easter Break, and we will see you all virtually when online instruction resumes next week.
Be well and stay safe!

Wide Open School is a free collection of the best online learning experiences for kids curated by the editors at Common Sense. There is so much good happening, and they are there to gather great stuff and organize it so teachers and families can easily find it and plan each day.
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
Please join them as take on their first service project of the year. The Sudan Water Project by participating in a dress down donation day on Thursday, November 7th. Please be as generous as your means allow.
In this mini-lesson, the Kindergarten children considered what would happen if their body didn’t have bones. In the activity, Skeleton Hand, students combined science with art: they traced their hands, then added see-through bones to their picture, making their own skeleton hand. No bones about it, this activity was fun!(more…)
