Good morning, parents. We hope you had an enjoyable weekend!
At Morning Assembly today, Kaiya R, 2nd Grader, shared that she does God's Will when she helps care for her baby brother who can't do anything by himself yet. Way to go, Kaiya!
Schools throughout the Diocese of St. Augustine are celebrating the 450th anniversary of the founding of the City of St. Augustine and the first parish. Saint Augustine wrote, "You touch me, and I am set on fire to attain the peace which is yours." This quote inspired the theme for the yearlong anniversary celebration with the symbol of fire and treasure representing the gift of faith and knowledge that students receive in Catholic school. At Morning Assembly, students from St. Francis High School in Gainesville brought to us the Evangelization cross, a candle (representing fire) and a treasure box. After Easter break, we will pass these items along to Bishop Snyder High School.
We are celebrating life at Holy Family in a very special way today! The first chick was born yesterday in the science lab. And there are others on the way. What an amazing gift from God! As we observe life being brought into the world, we are reminded of the perfection of God's creation and the sanctity of life. We thank Mrs. Yanny Salom for coordinating this embryology project for our school. Through this project, our students are given the opportunity to model St. Francis of Assisi as they care and provide shelter for the newborn chicks.
