Saint Francis of Assisi School

Where faith and education merge with excellence

Saint Francis of Assisi school was opened in 1929. We presently occupy three buildings, with the Pre-School classes held in the building adjacent to Conway Hall. The stone school building contains classrooms for Kindergarten, Grades 1-3, main  office, computer lab, nurse's office, Delaware County Intermediate Unit  remediation and counseling room. The brick building presently contains classrooms for Grades 4-8, principal's office, faculty room, Honors math classroom and contains a combination auditorium/gymnasium. St. Francis of Assisi School has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1984.

April News

Happy Spring and soon to be Easter! The Kindergarten class is working really hard throughout these last couple of weeks, as we head towards the end of the year. We have so much to look forward to as we watch spring come to life around us.

We will continue to practice addition and subtraction in Math. “Kid Writing” is progressing very well, and we will be starting “Doodle Writing,” a new series, in which the children are excited to begin! We are using 1st grade level reader books, and the students’ reading ability continues to improve daily.

Please review decoder books at home. I also have some additional K-1st grade level books that I can send home with your child if interested. Please be sure to return these though as they are school property.

We are very excited about our upcoming Easter Egg Hunt, and the study of embryology. Our hunt will be on 4/16 at 9:00.

Please have your child write their first and last name on their home assignments. We will be doing the same in class.

*** BTW*** Children are to wear winter gym uniform till May 10th!!!

Also, children can bring a water bottle for gym on Tuesdays!

MARCH NEWS!

                        

Welcome March and Spring!

March News

After a very crazy February the class is ready to get back into the swing of things. This month we will be graphing, reading with action words, writing with descriptive words, Jesus and how he teaches/helps us, Lent, and leaping leprechauns.

Also, most of the children are reading at this point, but it is imperative that sight words/ snappy words are reviewed daily. Please also review the weekly readers that are sent home for additional practice.

A special thank you to all the parents who helped make our 100th day celebration special! We had a blast! I am also a little late in thanking you all for your generous and thoughtful gifts on Teacher Appreciation Day, and Valentines Day. I appreciate you all very much!

REMINDER: If your child is absent, a note is needed when she/he returns to school.

Looking Ahead:

March 1st- First Friday Mass 9:30 

March 2nd- Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

March 14th- Dress Down Day / Donate a canned good

March 15th- 2nd Trimester Ends

March 21st- Hello, and Welcome SPRING

FEBRUARY NEWS 

February News

Dear Parents,

The month of February brings lots of activity to the Kindergarten class. In Reading, we will continue to learn consonant sounds and short vowel sounds. In Math, we will celebrate day 100, begin to recognize and write number’s to 30 and introduce the concept of place value. We will learn about Valentine’s Day, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, we will exchange Valentine’s Day cards with one another. If anyone needs a class list, just email me or send in a note.

*** PRACTICE SNAPPY WORDS*****

During this month of ‘Caring and Sharing’ take some time to develop positive problem solving skills with your child. Children need to understand the consequences of their actions and how their actions affect others. Model positive problem solving for your child. Use positive words in your household to resolve conflict.

We do continue to go outside for recess whenever the weather allows. Children need to bring their mittens, hats, etc. on these cold and snowy days. If your child is having trouble zipping and/or buttoning their coat, please continue to practice at home.

Reminders

Feb 1st- 1st Friday Mass/ 9:30

Feb 8th- 100th day celebration

                                                               Feb 14th- Valentine’s Brunch/ sock drive ends

Feb 15th & 18th- NO SCHOOL

                                                                Have a FABULOUS February!

Warmly,

Mrs. Travers
