St. Augustine School
“Following the way, the truth, and the life of Christ”
February 16, 2017
Dear St. Augustine Family,
During Wednesday’s morning prayer, the following students were presented with awards by Father Christopher Murphy for their accomplishments in the Diocesan Vocation Drawing Contest. Sonya Cheteyan in grade seven, Sofia Benevides in grade three and Morgan Lee in grade one were all the first place winners in the contest which had over eight hundred entries across the state. We have displayed their pictures outside my office if you are interested in seeing their great artistry.
I am proud of our accomplishment being in the top five for the category “Private Education” in the Providence Journal’s 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards. Thank you for all the voting support in the first round. Let’s see if we can out vote some of the larger schools like LaSalle and St. Andrew’s. Remember it just takes an e-mail and a password. You can use multiple e-mails and can vote every day from February 10th to March 5th. To use multiple e-mails on a single device, you might need to go under a “New Incognito Page” which you can find on most computers/devices in the top right drop down screen where you find Bookmarks, etc. Even though we found out late that we were nominated in the contest, we were able to get in the top five in just a day and a half of the original two week voting period. So let’s join together as a school community and do our best to tally up the votes! http://promotions.providencejournal.com/l/The-Providence-Journals-Readers-Choice-Awards/WelcomeInstructions
You may have noticed that the cover of our church bulletin now has a picture of the school on it – thank you Father Forcier! Every month you will see inside the bulletin an article from our eighth graders. Last week the article was about our monthly “Mass Club” which has recently increased in number of students attending. Thank you for all those that attend and we invite more to come – basically once a month on a Thursday at the 7am Mass with breakfast treats to follow in the church basement. The next one will be March 16th, and a flyer will go in the family envelope prior to that date.
I hope all the children enjoy the break.! Until next week…
Mr. Andrew Brassard
