First Day of St. Giles School Year 2019-2020
August 21, 2019
On August 21, 2019, we kicked off the 2019-20 school year with some wonderful weather and smiles! Students were sharply dressed in new uniforms, eager to return to the classroom. Staff were outside to welcome families, hug students who missed them over summer and introduce them to their new classrooms and classmates.
With a new year comes change: an earlier start time, 3rd graders moved from the Corrigan Building to the Frawley Building, complete remodel of the Faculty Lounge and many grades moved to new classrooms.
FOLLOW ME is our school theme this year. Fr. Carl reminded students at our opening Mass, that when they put on their school uniforms, to remember they are also putting on the inner uniform of a follower of Jesus – one who loves God and neighbor. He told them to stand tall, wear their uniforms with pride and be kind and caring in whatever space they take up.
