Pope Francis came to the United States in September. He visited Washington, D.C., New York City, and Philadelphia.
Two families went to Philadelphia to see the Pope. They kindly brought back one of these red bracelets for all the students and teachers at St. Michael Catholic School.
Students watched the Pope speaking live in Washington, D.C. Our students remembered the day that he made his first appearance in the Vatican. So seeing him speaking in the United States was a very important event for our St. Michael Catholic School students.
I downloaded the Flat Francis file, enlarged it slightly, and added some color. Flat Francis traveled around our school.
The kids had their picture taken with Flat Francis on the playground, in class reading, and using an ipad.
