On August 10, 2020, when we received news that Frassati would be re-opening for full-time, in-person learning, on September 8, Falcons old and young rejoiced with great joy!
We knew there was much to learn about navigating in-person learning during a pandemic, but this community was eager to work together to find a way.
Now that we are on the other side of the 2020-2021 year, it is hard to feel anything but awe and immense gratitude for all that was accomplished over these last nine months.
From the students to the teachers, to the staff and the families, to the parishioners, and to our community supporters, we saw countless acts of love that allowed us to keep those doors open each and every school day.
Every member in and around this Falcon nest took it upon themselves to do their part, any part – even if that part was offering up prayers for health and safety.
When we look back and reflect on the year, which somehow went by in a flash, we are left with a wow and a heartfelt thank you.
To each and every one of you, thank you for helping to make this year a tremendous blessing that positively impacted many people’s lives, and will likely continue to positively impact them for many years to come. Thank you.
After memorial day weekend, with one-and-a-half days remaining in the year, there was a lot that needed to be celebrated and a lot of long-awaited gathering that could finally be done!
First up, was the all-school BBQ:
Next up, was the eighth-grade graduation mass:
And the last official event on the schedule was Field Day! Mrs. Reibel set up this year’s event around the theme of the Olympics, and for the first time all year, students got to mix with other students from other grades. It was a great opportunity for students to make some new friends, say hello to friends they haven’t seen in a while, and run around outside before the noon dismissal!
After the Field Day activities, students headed back to their classrooms to wrap up the last bits and pieces of the year.
Wishing you all a wonderful summer!
