Crusader Chronicle

May 2022

Dear Crusader Families,

I know May has seemed like a Marathon with all the various school activities and events. We greatly appreciate everyone who helped to make the events run smoothly.

Please take time to read about all the events during the last week of school. If there are any questions, please contact the school office.

Just a friendly reminder, tonight is the Mother-Son event at the Dayton Dragons game. Please read an update below regarding the game.

Thank you to everyone who makes SFDS the amazing school that it is! We are truly blessed to have such a supportive community!
