St. Francis Catholic School - 8.29.22
SFCS celebrates 26 Years of Growing Together in Faith & Knowledge
Dear SFCS Parents & Friends,
As we begin our third week of school, I am so pleased to see the high level of the engagement of our teachers with their students in each classroom. The teachers haven't missed a beat. The walls in our halls are beginning to fill up with work the students are producing. What a blessing to walk in the classrooms and down the hallways and see happy teachers and students!
The Lady Wolves had their first home volleyball game last week. Both of our teams, junior and senior, played really well. We had a good crowd along with a wonderful student cheer section. We welcome you to come out and support the SFCS teams! A variety of concessions (snacks, pizza, delicious popcorn, drinks, etc.) are available during our home games.
The students are enjoying "Spirit Day" Fridays. As a reminder, on Fridays, students are allowed to wear a SFCS t-shirt and their uniform bottom. The only exception to this is if students in grades 3rd - 5th have PE on Friday. Only grades 3rd-5th may wear their PE shorts if they have PE on Fridays. Middle school students should not wear PE uniform shorts to school on "Spirit Day" Fridays, regardless if they have PE, as all the middle school students change for PE.
Due to a conflict, the date of our gala and possible location of the Sapphire Ball, has to change. As soon as we confirm the new date/venue, communication will be released. Thank you for your understanding.
We invite you to attend our School Mass each Wednesday morning at 10:00 at St. Francis By the Sea Catholic Church. Parents, Guardians, and Friends, please sit on the left side of the church (as you walk in).
Next Monday, the school will be closed for the Labor Day holiday. Have a safe and restful long weekend! (Don't forget picture days begin on Tuesday, September 6. See below under "Upcoming Events".)
Yours in Christ,
Andrea Smith, M.Ed., LPC, NCC
