To commemorate Teacher Appreciation Week, St. Frances Academy held a Teacher Appreciation Dinner for staff and faculty.  St. Frances Academy is one of two Maryland sites participating in the Hallways to Health program, which is a program sponsored by MASBHC, School-Based Health Alliance, and Kaiser Permanente’s Thriving Schools Initiative. St. Frances Academy’s Teachers Appreciation Dinner was held as part of the Hallways to Health grant’s employee wellness component.


The Teacher Appreciation Dinner also had a wellness program component which included a yoga class led by a certified yoga instructor and a mindfulness session immediately following the yoga class. The event was held immediately following the end of the school to ensure maximum participation. All staff that attended the event participated in the yoga class and mindfulness session. Dinner was catered by Biddle Street Catering from their Healthy Dinner menu. Dinner included oven fried chicken, low-fat salads, fruit salad for dessert, and unsweetened ice tea. The staff and faculty that attended really enjoyed trying something new and were appreciative that their everyday efforts at St. Frances Academy were recognized
