School is back in session, and by the many smiles on the students faces; they are happy to be back among friends and ready to take on another year of academic and spiritual formation.
However, sometimes the goodbyes are harder on the parents than the kids. St. Francis Central Catholic School hosts an annual Boo-Hoo Breakfast on the first day of school to help with the transition by offering food, fellowship, and support.
This year, parents got together to share their joys, fears and tears after dropping off their young scholars. They also bonded together and realized they’re not alone, even though they watched their little ones leave them…for a few hours. And they can see just how well their kids are doing without mom and dad.
By the time the Boo-Hoo Breakfast was over, the parents were reassured and the kids, well, they were doing fine, well on their way to learning and forming lasting friendships.
