It is hard to believe that we are halfway through May! The rugby season is in full swing and our teams continue to do well!
On May 5 was the annual “Friday Night Lights” junior and senior games at St. Joan. Our teams won both games in front of hundreds of fans.
Congratulations to our Senior Girls Soccer team who won gold at an 18 team tournament on Friday May 5. These are exciting times for Eagle sports at Bressani !
Soon we will also be experiencing the “Scenes, Sights and Sounds” of the Father Bressani Visual and Performing Arts Department. On May 25th there will be an art exhibit from 6:30 to 9 pm and our school bands will perform their annual spring concert in the main gym starting at 7pm. Tickets are available in advance for $10. For more info contact Mrs D’Amato at the school.
Last Friday I had the pleasure of visiting our Special Education (FLS) students and teachers during period two when they hosted a spring tea for their moms. The room was decorated with flowers and there were tables of sweets. The moms present were treated to a very touching video made by their kids. This was a very special event and a great way to move into Mother’s Day weekend. Well done!
On May 16th we had our annual Breakfast of Champions for students who have quietly shown leadership in their classes or extra-curricular activities. The 52 students who were invited were from all grades.
