Principal’s Newsletter 9/20/19
Dear St. Francis Families,
As we finish the end of the sixth week of instruction, I want to recognize the fantastic work our Troubies are doing in and outside of the classroom. The first month of school has flown by, and our Troubies are settling into their routine.
At this point of the year, I like to remind 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 daughters to find time to breathe and decompress, as it will provide them with the coping skills necessary to be successful throughout 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, and resilient young women.
St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us!
Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),
