When the students at St. Francis de Sales heard that their principal, Sr. Patricia Chelius, was chosen to be one of the Grand Marshals of the Rockaway St. Patrick’s Day parade, they were thrilled. It was suggested then that each class make a congratulatory poster, card or banner in honor of Sr. Patricia. The main hall was decorated on Thursday after school. When Sr. Patricia arrived on Friday morning, she was met by the entire faculty playing Irish music with a table set for a breakfast of crumb cake.
