Welcome to Mrs. Francuck's Classroom!

Welcome!
 
I am Lindsay Francuck and proud to say this is my 6th year teaching at Holy Family and 17 years in education altogether. My experiences include teaching within the Archdiocese as well as Baker College. I have earned a B.S. from Oakland University and a M.A in Literacy Education from Madonna University. I hold certifications in K-5 Elementary Education, 6-8 Social Studies & Language Arts, K-12 Reading Specialist and also Catechist Certification through the Archdiocese of Detroit.
 
What led me to Holy Family was a search to find, not just a school, but a community in which I felt would be a nice place to raise my children. It didn't take long before I too, wanted to spend my days at HF! This truly is a special place and I appreciate all the blessings it has brought to my family personally, and enriched my life professionally, as well. 
 
I wish to THANK YOU for the privilege to work with you and your child this school year. Please know your child's success is my top priority. Together, we can partner to create an amazing educational TEAM for your child as they begin preparations for high school and beyond!
 
Please contact me anytime! I'm always happy to help!
 
* Please click on the link (right) "Mrs. Francuck's Reading Corner." I will be sharing the latest news in the literacy community that I receive as a member of the International Literacy Association. I'm happy to pass on the great information to you in a monthly format, as well as daily in the classroom through instruction and interaction with your children. 
 
* Understood.org. is a wonderful site that I frequently use so I'll share any pertinent information that may be helpful to parents.

Happy Summer!

Happy Summer!!!! 
Your children have touched my heart and given me purpose in an otherwise extremely challenging time. Thank YOU for allowing me to partner with you. 
Freckle assignments were sent home last week (for incoming 8th graders). Please email me with any questions. 
7th graders - I will see you in August, as 8th graders!
8th graders - I wish you ALL THE BEST! You will be missed! High school is waiting for you! 
All my love,
Mrs. Francuck 

How can I support my middle schooler reader?

Happy New Year! Let's start off 2021 with a good book! 
 
7th graders are reading "When You Reach Me" by Rebecca Stead and 8th graders are reading "Hope Was Here" by Joan Bauer. 
 
How can you support them at home? Check out their individual novel study folders! (7th graders are yellow, 8th graders are red) Look for these at home and support your child in their learning. 
 
Look through their work, discuss chapters and key words together, analyze quotations and themes and apply positive quotations into your lives. Together! 
 
Isn't that the joy of reading? I welcome you to be part of our classroom journey.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!
We did it! 2020 is almost OVER! As challenging as it has been, it has also blessed us with greatness. Your KIDDOS! They are AMAZING! I love learning with them, laughing with them, and hearing all of their stories!
I pray you all recharge over the break. I promise to recharge too! I have some great lessons planned upon our return and cannot wait to get back to work.
Until then, I will miss the laughter and the learning. I always do while on a break. Your children have become my second family! If you have any great photos to share while on break, please email them to me. I LOVE to see what they are up to, etc. You can bet I'll be drinking espresso, wearing cozy slippers, and toggling between Amazon and teacher websites. Ah, that's the perfect break! 
Most importantly, never lose sight of the true meaning of CHRISTmas. We are so blessed to know the truth. Who knew a baby in a manger would change the world? Blessed beyond measure!
Stay healthy and happy. I will see you all on January 4th, 2021!
