Principal’s Newsletter 9/14/18
Dear St. Francis Families,
I can’t believe we have completed the fifth week of instruction! The first month of school has flown by, and our Troubies are settling into their routine.
At this time last year, I reminded parents to discuss with their daughters the importance of finding balance in their busy schedules. As you are aware, our Troubies challenge themselves with rigorous academic coursework, athletics, student clubs, and a host of other activities. Please encourage your daughter(s) to find time to breathe and decompress, as it will provide them with the coping skills necessary to be successful through the year. As we get closer to the end of the 1st Quarter, an important skill for any student to learn is to ask early on for assistance so she can feel confident in her academics and activities. We want to ensure our Troubies utilize the various support systems we have in place at St. Francis, such as asking teachers for assistance, signing up for tutoring, working with their Guidance and/or our Wellness counselors.
Thank you for being proactive and helping us develop strong, confident, young women.
St. Francis of Assisi pray for us!
Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),
