School Notes for Week of March 21-25

  • In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, St. Francis School is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering 1st grade through 6th grade. It’s an exciting weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. All activities give participants the opportunity to be a part of something big while having fun! Local educators will  facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students will serve as Leadership Interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children. Early registration discounts available. Every registration includes a complimentary Camp Invention T-shirt. Availability is limited, so visit www.campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332 to secure your child’s spot today!AmyErin
  • Congratulations to LS/MS math teacher Amy Koloff for winning the Greater Louisville Council of Teachers of Mathematics award for excellence in elementary education. The Helen Cunningham Educator Award is given to three teachers each year in the greater Louisville area. This year, Amy has worked diligently in ensuring each class is meaningful for her students.  She has also taken an interest in helping students to develop interactive notebooks with a variety of visual aids and foldables that engage students in the learning process.  For her engaging classroom and electric personality, Amy was nominated and won!  Kudos to Amy for her hard work; we are proud to call her a Wyvern!Lorenzo
  • 8th grader Lorenzo Mahoney went to the Governor’s Cup State finals this past weekend, which was hosted at the Galt House.  Competitors have to score in the top few at their District and Regional Governor’s Cup competitions before advancing to State. Lorenzo finished in the middle of the pack of 136 students. Congratulations!
