SWAP Day
Friday, February 1, 2019

Don’t miss your chance to become a St. Francis Troubadour for the day!

SWAP (Switch With A Parent) Day will be held on Friday, February 1st, and is a great opportunity for parents to experience their daughter’s classes in a fun and memorable way. Join us between 8:00 and 8:45 a.m. for a coffee reception in the Dining Hall. School “starts” at 8:45 a.m. with a welcome by the President, Theresa Rodgers, and the Principal, Elias Mendoza. Then you are off to enjoy all of your daughter’s classes. Ask your daughter to text you her schedule, and print a copy to give to you so you know where you need to be and when. You don’t want to get a tardy!

We will be raffling off a pair of Crab Feed Tickets during the welcome reception. You must be present to win. This will give two lucky people a final chance to attend the Crab Feed on Saturday, February 2nd (always a sell-out event). If you bring a bottle of wine for our Revelry event valued at more than $20, you’ll get an extra ticket for the Crab Feed raffle! Parents will also have an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to win tuition for a year during SWAP day.

Planned PG&E Work on Elvas Avenue

PG&E has informed us that on Friday, January 18, 2019, they will be doing some work on the natural gas pipeline and other PG&E-owned natural gas infrastructure near our school. For your information, they will be using some heavy machinery and doing excavation work that may interfere with the daily traffic flow. The work will be conducted from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., barring any weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.  We will make every effort to notify you in advance of any cancellation or a change in schedule.  Due to the effect this will have on our regular drop-off/pick-up traffic flow, we will be opening the 58th Street entrance (the gate leading into the Armory cell phone lot) during morning drop-off. In the afternoon, we will be opening the M St. and 58th St. gates to allow our students to exit the parking lot so as not to congest the pick-up line.

Resource Outreach: Top 10 Oral Presentation Tips for Students

  1. Speaking in public is a “Top Ten” fear. Knowing this, realize that the majority of your audience empathize with you. Instead of imagining them criticizing you, imagine them encouraging you.
  2. Prepare effectively. Identify main ideas as bullet points on flashcards. Write in your favorite color, in caps. List additional points in your second favorite color, in lower case. Any fear you may have is based on the feeling of being out of control.

Led by Dr. Briggs and students in the St. Francis Latin program, participants will have fun learning basic Latin phrases, the foundations of Latin grammar, Roman history, mythology, and interesting ways in which Latin continues to affect our modern world. We will learn about how Latin has given us many of the words in English and in the romance languages, such as Spanish. We will also use games and hands on activities. When we learn about food, students will taste some of the foods of ancient Rome. When we learn about the Roman military, students will be able to test catapults. This camp is open to rising 6th -8th graders. No prior Latin experience is required, just an eagerness to learn and an interest in the ancient world.

Resource Outreach: Top Tips to Prepare for Finals

  1. Preparation is related to a realistic understanding of what you can control and what you cannot. You can control eating, sleeping, attitude, work ethic, organization, and time management for finals.
  2. Eat brain foods including those high in omega 3 fatty acids (ex. salmon), foods that are high in antioxidants (ex. blueberries), and foods with choline (ex. eggs).
  3. Do not drink excessive caffeine. This creates dehydration. The brain must remain fully hydrated to function fully. Side effect: what goes up must come down.

Sign Up for Kairos Retreat

Parents, if you have not done so already, please take time this weekend to sign up your senior daughter for her Kairos Retreat. We still have space on the November Kairos. This would be a great Kairos to attend, as it is also followed up by the Thanksgiving break, which gives her a chance to catch up.

There is still spaces left in the March and April Kairos retreats as well. January is full, and there is a waiting list!

Kairos is a trans-formative experience. It is an experience your daughter will remember for the rest of her life. Don’t let your senior daughter miss this life-changing experience. She may regret not taking part of it while at St. Francis.

Top Ten Tips to Overcome Procrastination from Resource Outreach

  1. Know that procrastination is another word for perfectionism. Only Jesus Christ is perfect. You are not perfect, and your work will not be perfect. Your goal is work completion.
  2. Time management is critical. List the tasks you need to complete by end of day and give each a realistic time limit. Look for open times in your day’s schedule, and insert tasks.
  3. Value progress toward work completion. Example: You completed one of four tasks. You are 25% done with your day’s work!

Parent Driving Safety

Thank you for your assistance this week with the traffic flow.  We will be closing the 58th Street and M Street entrances effective 8/31/18.

The driveway/frontage road into the cell phone lot is ONE WAY ONLY.  Please do not attempt to drive or reverse backwards down the driveway/frontage road, so we may avoid any accidents.

Dropping off/picking up your student directly on Elvas Avenue can be very dangerous.  Please use the drop off/pick up zones provided. Those extra few minutes in line may save your child’s life.

M street parent volunteers

We are looking for parents to work the M Street door from 7:15 to 8:15 a.m. or 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. for parent hours.  If you are interested in working one or more shifts on one or more days, please contact CCost@stfrancishs.org.

Weekly Wellness: Tips for Communicating With Your Teen
By: Chyrissee Lee & Kym Weinandy, SFHS Wellness Counselor

Article excerpt from Child Mind Institute By: Rachel Ehmke

The teenage years have a lot in common with the terrible twos. During both stages our kids are doing exciting new things, but they’re also pushing boundaries (and buttons) and throwing tantrums. The major developmental task facing both age groups is also the same: kids must pull away from parents and begin to assert their own independence. No wonder they sometimes act as if they think they’re the center of the universe.  This makes for complicated parenting, especially because teens are beginning to make decisions about things that that have real consequence, like school and friends and driving, not to speak of substance use and sex. But they aren’t good at regulating their emotions yet, so teens are prone to taking risks and making impulsive decisions.  This means that having a healthy and trusting parent-child relationship during the teenage years is more important than ever. Staying close isn’t easy, though.

Traffic Updates – Please Read

Dear Parents,

I wanted to provide you with some advanced warning about potential traffic delays next week. Starting on Monday, August 27th, Sacramento State will begin their fall semester.  Phoebe Hearst is due to commence their school year on Thursday, August 30th and as you can imagine, the popular routes to our school will be extremely busy in the morning.  While this normally has a moderate impact for a week or two, with the construction on Folsom and 65th St., we suggest two alternate entrances to campus.

  • Continue with normal entrance into the main parking lot off of Elvas
  • Use entrance off of 58th Street (prior to J St.) into the Armory parking lot, follow the afternoon pick up route (you do not have park in the cell lot) after 7:15am.  
  • Use entrance off of M Street through the teacher/student lot follow the afternoon pick up route after 7:15am.
  • There is no change to the pick-up routine in the afternoon.

Alert to SFHS Families

It has been reported by St. Mary School that some suspicious men have been seen in cars parked or driving along M Street, watching St. Francis girls walk to St. Mary’s.  If your daughter is one who may be walking along M Street to meet with you or a sibling at St. Mary’s, we want to make you aware of this happening.

The Police Department has been notified and both schools are working together to do what we can to make this area safer for your daughters. For the time being, we are recommending the girls wait for another student/s to walk down together to St. Mary’s or remain at St. Francis until they can be picked up by a parent.  Please remind your daughter/s not to walk alone and to be aware of her surroundings.

Weekly Wellness: Back-To-School Tips for a Successful Year
By: Chyrissee Lee & Kym Weinandy, SFHS Wellness Counselor

Remind your Troubie that the old saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” is never more true than when you’re going to school. Students are more alert and perform better in class if they eat a good breakfast. 

Encourage your Troubie to get enough sleep. Studies show that teens need at least 8½ hours of sleep each night to feel rested. Sleep deprivation can lead students to fall asleep in class and can also make it hard to concentrate. It can be more productive to get the sleep they need than it is to stay up late cramming. A recent study found that students who got adequate sleep before a math test were nearly three times more likely to figure out the problem than those who stayed up all night.

  • Know that you are a unique child of God. You ARE a success.
  • Celebrate diversity in culture, talents, and academics.
  • Academic failure is directly linked to poor attendance, tardies, and detentions. Show up, show up on time, and show up in uniform. No excuses!
  • Academic failure is directly linked to late and/or missing assignments. Use a planner (SF planners have our schedule) or use Google calendar to keep track of due dates. No excuses!

Senior Parking Lot Painting Day

We have received questions about the painting day tomorrow (Saturday, 8/11/18).  At this point, we are moving forward tomorrow from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  However, we strongly suggest that you consider stopping no later than 1:00 p.m. as as the afternoon air quality deteriorates.  There is an additional parking painting day on Monday, August 13 from 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (same situation).  We do not know when the air quality will improve (it may be several weeks) so coming earlier and leaving early is the best.  If we need to open an one additional painting day, it will be towards the end of September.    

We do not want to have students with health issues to feel they have to paint at this time. If you need to move to the end of September, please let me know.  Parents, you should discuss if it is safe for your daughter to participate. Participate only if you both agree that it is safe.  If you cannot stay the entire time to paint tomorrow, but you feel you can come to pick your space and paint your name, feel free to do so.

We look forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow morning, Mrs. Cost
