HFCA’s 2nd Annual Father & Daughter Dance – our Ladies were beautiful and our Gentleman were dashing as they danced and ate the night away. It was a beautiful night and all will have the memories that will last a lifetime!
Since our “class published book” was such a hit last year we decided to do it again this year. We used George & Martha stories as a starting point. We listened to many of their adventures and created our own story with them as the characters. Our imaginations created our wonderful end product. The children were excited to see their final product as a real book!
The readathon starts today! We are so excited about focusing on reading for the next few weeks. We are making reading a rewarding journey for both your child and our school but we need your help. Please be sure that you have registered your child and follow the instructions in the Read-a-Thon system.
Start your reading!!!
The 2nd Grade had a great time at the APEC- the kids were given an exciting and interesting lesson about the animals and also learned what this amazing place does to care for each of the animals, they had a hands on experience with a few of these adorable animals and finished with a beautiful nature walk through the grounds….

The teachers today had lessons and discussions about courtesy and examples of random kindness. In the morning our older grades watched the new Movie Wonder – the movie is a great example for kids and adults of the importance of morality, being kind, and showing forgiveness. The little ones watched Disney’s the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
In the afternoon all classes were honored to attend mass celebrated by the Most Reverend Bishop Raymond Chappetto, what a beautiful way to end the day.
