HFE introductions…At HFE, we have the most amazing faculty & staff. The commitment and dedication of those who work here is like no other. They walk in their faith every single day and love our students fiercely. Each and every one of them brings something unique to table and we would not be the school we are without them. With that, let me introduce you to Mrs. Cristy Dinkel! Please take a moment to get to know Cristy and give her a shout out on Facebook in the comments section of this post. Thank you, Cristy, for all you do for Holy Family Elementary, we appreciate you! Name: Cristy Dinkel Years at HFE: 9 years Position at HFE: 2nd Grade Teacher What do you love most about the work that you do at HFE: I love how God’s calling works. I was raised Lutheran and strayed away during college. I had the opportunity to become and teach Catholic when I married my husband. Favorite time of day (during the school day) and why: My favorite part of the day is when the bell rings for students to go to class and I get to greet them all individually and see their day start with a smile. Favorite activity or event that we do at HFE and why: I love that we get to celebrate holidays at HFE. Favorite school lunch (if you eat the school lunch): Do not eat school lunch. Do you arrive early, on time or late to school: Late What do you bring to school with you every day, if anything: Badge/keys, purse, water & coffee, lunch bag. Describe the personality trait you have that best supports HFE and our faculty & staff: I feel like I bring my outgoing personality to the table. I love smiling and greeting everyone with eye contact anytime in passing. Our overall virtue this 2021-2022 school year is Love. And under Love, we have the virtues of Goodness, Generosity, Self-Control and Gentleness. Please choose one of the 5 virtues and describe what it means to you or why it may be speaking to you this year: I feel the virtues of love and gentleness speak to me. Last year was a huge challenge and there are going to be some lasting effects from last year. Therefore, if I show love and gentleness, I can get through any challenge. We all fight battles others may not know about, so we could all use a little extra and show a little extra love and gentleness. Cristy shared a few photos with us.. 1. Her and her husband, Larry with her great-nephew /godson's at his baptism 2. Cristy and her dog Emma Grace dressed up together for Halloween 3. Her cat Stella Rose

HFE happenings...As our students begin working in their STREAM blocks it is important that we lay a solid foundation. One of the first steps involved them learning about Collaboration. In the Computer Lab, the students in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades discussed what collaboration means, as well as what it looks and sounds like. It is an essential part of any group work. To illustrate the importance of collaborating they then worked in small groups to build a card tower. Through their working together they were quite successful.
