Dear St. Augustine Family,
First Penance/Living Stations
This past Sunday, our second graders made their First Penance in preparation for their First Communion in May. Father Forcier said they were all very well prepared and that each of them gave a solemn confession. May God bless them on their sacramental journey. Our sixth graders, directed by Mrs. Corsini, also presented a moving rendition of living stations in the church this past Thursday afternoon. Thank you to both the second and sixth graders for reminding us of the true meaning of Lent and the upcoming Holy Week.
Last weekend, the Rhode Island Science and Engineering Fair was held at CCRI in Warwick. The seventh and eighth grade winners of our school fair represented St. Augustine School in the event. Noah Perullo was awarded First Grant for his project “Walk on Water”. Three students were awarded Second Grant; Lindsay Vescera for her project, “How Waterproof is Water Proof?”, Aria Teare for her project, “Do Jellyfish Make Good Pets?”, and Lindsey Frisina for her project, “The Popability of Popcorn”. Brigid McGrath achieved Third Grant for her project, “Price Vs. Durability”. In addition, Aria Teare will be receiving a special award in her category at the award ceremony on Thursday evening.
Congratulations and good luck to both our Girls’ Grammar and our Boys’ Junior Division One basketball teams who became State Champions this past weekend. The girls beat St. Michael’s of Smithfield on a game winning shot by Meah Piscopiello. The boys won both their games this past weekend over Our Lady of Mercy and Holy Apostles. Those two victories put the boys at a perfect 14-0. Both the girls and boys will take part in the New England Championships in Waterbury, Ct, on the weekend of April 6th. I will provide more details when they become available.
