Mr. Brassard’s Weekly Letter

St. Augustine School

“Following the way, the truth and the life of Christ”

Dear St. Augustine Family,

Veterans’ Day

 

During morning prayer on Thursday, our kindergarten class sang their rendition of God Bless America. Their voices sang loud and clear and the rest of the students and staff joined them during the second stanza. It definitely took a lot of courage for the kindergarteners to get up and sing, since they had many adoring eyes from the crowd. We may have some budding stars in the making.

Thank you to our middle school students who made over one hundred Veterans’ Day cards for patients at the Veteran’s Hospital in Providence. I am sure the thoughts they expressed will warm the heart of a veteran.

 

Day of The Dead

 

We  just celebrated all souls day last week, and I had an opportunity to  look at the middle school projects celebrating the Spanish feast  titled “Day Dead of the Dead”. Students created different representations of what would be a similar representation seen in Spanish homes or cemeteries in remembrance of someone who has passed away. The eighth graders made what are called “Ofrendas”. These are usually made a few tiers high and the eighth graders made some that are towering on tables in the halls of the middle school. They all did a great job and as usual, you will have a chance to see them at the art show here later in the year.

I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend! We will see everyone on Monday morning.

Until next week… God Bless,

Mr. Andrew Brassard
