Rolls Royce Employees spend the day at St. Anthony

Rolls Royce recently provided a day of service at St. Anthony. Volunteers pulled out bushes, weeds and planted new mums in the front of the school. Other were in classrooms, reading and talking with students. They discussed the education they received for their current position, what the company does, how many people work there and how long it takes to create an engine. Volunteers also sat in the lunchroom while the students ate and talked with them. Both volunteers and students said that they had a great day!  We are grateful to Rolls Royce for giving this opportunity to our students.

Holy Cross Visited by Butler Researcher

Holy Cross Central School is pleased to have hosted Dr. Lori Desautels from Butler University to check out the new Social-Emotional Learning classroom. She is a nationally recognized expert on Educational Neuroscience. She was excited to see this research being applied at the school level to benefit all children. During a recent SEL lesson, students were taught about the neuroplasticity of the brain and created brains out of clay, one of which was presented to Dr. Desautels. 
HCC students are taught a core curriculum in SEL skills (self-regulation, coping, problem solving, conflict resolution, and communication) in the classroom. They have an additional SEL class each week taught by Lisa Moore (Tiger Coach) and Brandy Sawyer. Students with specific SEL needs have individual plans and are personally instructed by the Tiger Coach.
