“Faith plants the seed; we make it grow!” is the theme for the 2019-2020 year at Saint Lucy School. Focusing on the enrichments of faith in our lives, Saint Lucy School energetically began the new school year with a suite of student, parent and family activities.
Incoming kindergarten students and their families were welcomed to the traditional Dessert Night a few days before school began. Students got an early peek into their new classroom, played outside with future classmates, and parents enjoyed making connections with new and old friends. Pre-K families enjoyed a similar orientation to their new school, while sixth grade parents attended a junior high orientation night to learn about this very important start to the Saint Lucy School Junior High program.
The first days of school brought its usual excitement, and FUN. The Student Council leadership provided the student body with a “lightning” welcome at the first morning assembly/spirit rally. Teachers were challenged to compete in a giant Jenga game- the class whose teacher toppled the tower had to sing Baby Shark at the next morning assembly! Parents hosted a welcome coffee in the parking lot after waving goodbye to their little ones and were glad to catch up after summer vacation. Father Mark blessed each classroom and learning space and the parent leadership groups hosted the traditional Parent-Teacher Kickoff Dinner. This is a wonderful event for parents to start the year, enjoy a tri-tip dinner, purchase new Saint Lucy Spirit Wear and uniforms, sign up for numerous volunteer opportunities, and reconnect after the summer break with the school community.
In addition to all the events of the new school year, in the background are all of the committee meetings and planning for Saint Lucy’s 33rd Annual Fun Fest Carnival, which will take place October 4-6.
Principal Sue Grover added “We were so eager to kickoff the new school year! The Saint Lucy School community is so strong because of the partnership between teachers, parents, students and staff as we work to enjoy each other and support the growth of each child.”
