As we finish the end of the fifth week of instruction, I want to recognize the fantastic work our girls are doing both in and outside of the classroom. Every time I see them out and about, they are positive and filled with energy.
Settling into the routine of school and extra-curricular activities, I thought it would be important to remind you to discuss with your daughter(s) the importance of finding balance in her busy schedule. As you are aware, our Troubies challenge themselves with rigorous academic coursework, athletics, student clubs, and a host of other activities. Please encourage your student(s) to find time to breath and decompress, as it will provide her 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, and 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),
