The PBIS program was implemented to encourage good behavior of our students here at HFCS. During the school year, positive behavior is observed and the student is given a Cardinal Card from a teacher or staff member for demonstrating their safe, respectful, responsible and Christ-like behavior. The ticket is then placed, by the student, in a jar in front of the school office. Each month we draw individual winners at the PBIS assembly. Winners for the month of October are:
Adele H in Grade 2, Noa K in Grade 2, Garren L in Grade 3 Maddie D in Grade 7 and Hayden K in Grade 8. Timothy S in Grade 2 won PE Student of the month. Classroom award winners are nominated by the staff based on the obervance of positive class behavior. Grade 2 won the Hallway Angels award and Grade 3 won the Kindness Candle. Grade 7 won the PE Sportsmanship award. Congratulations!
We have experienced a beautiful autumn and, being from Montana, I am hoping for a winter wonderland in December and January. As we prepare for the activities of the upcoming holiday seasons, we are reminded each day of the graces that we receive. Our students are creative, diligent and kind in their interactions at school. It is fun to watch them grow and learn. We are anticipating a jammed packed few months and we are ready.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you and your children.
Energy Savings for Families

The fourth and seventh grade classes volunteered to fill a backpack to feed those in need in our community. They are living out the Catholic Social Teaching, Rights and Responsibilities. The Catholic Spirit defines it as:
"Every person has a fundamental right to life — the right that makes all other rights possible. Each person also has a right to the conditions for living a decent life — food, health care, housing, education and employment. We have a corresponding duty to secure and respect these rights for others and to fulfill our responsibilities to our families, to each other and to our larger society."
As faith-filled learners, we help and respect all life. One way we can show our understanding of this Social Teaching is by participating in Backpack for Kids. Our students are called to serve. Thank you to the Fourth & Seventh Grade students & families for helping us make a difference.
