Fun Questions With 7th Grade
Along with their class work each day, the 7th Grade class has been responding to an interesting question. Just for fun. Monday’s question: If you could ban one vegetable forever, what would it be? And why?
Here are some responses:
Ben: I would ban sweet potatoes because i have always thought the words sweet and potato should never be in the same sentence, let alone be an actual thing.
Jed: I would ban eggplant because nobody eats it and it is purple. Who wants to eat a purple vegetable?
Victoria: I would ban kale because it has no good impact on humanity.
Which vegetable would you ban forever?
Video Conferencing With Students
St. Francis of Assisi School believes that technology should be used as a vehicle of communication, analysis, and research in light of Catholic values and moral decision-making. SFA is committed to the integration and effective use of current and future technology to further the educational mission of SFA and the Church’s mission of spreading the Gospel to all people.
As we provide sustained learning for your children, one of the technologies we may use is a video conferencing tool like Google Meet or Zoom. However, before your child can be in a video conference, we need permission from you. Please complete this form as soon as possible to grant us your permission:
Thank you!
Learning At Home
Here are a few resources to use with students to help sustain the learning while they’re away from school:

Nut-Free School
Due to the severe, sudden, and life-threatening nature of peanut & tree nut allergies, St. Francis of Assisi School is a NUT-FREE school environment. No peanuts or nuts are allowed on campus at any time nor at any school-sponsored events- on or off campus. Thank you for supporting our proactive policy.
