Dear Parents & Friends of SFCS,

I hope everyone has enjoyed Christmas Recess and is having a great beginning of 2019. We are looking forward to having the students return to school on Monday.

The New Year will start with a busy month at St. Francis Catholic School. In the next three weeks the students will be taking their Winter MAP Assessments. The 2nd Quarter will conclude on the 15th. Our Athletic Department will be in the height of the basketball regular season. We will end the month celebrating Catholic school education with Catholic Schools Week. What a busy and fun month we have ahead of us!

It will be the time of year where Gala preparations will be in full swing. Keep an eye out for more information coming regarding ticket sales this week. Don't forget to check out the information about our donation drive and sponsorship info!

Looking forward to seeing everyone Monday!

Sincerely in Christ,

Brian Pope

Gala Donation Drive!!!

Well it is time to start planning for A Night at the Disco!!! This year the FSA's Gala is on March 23rd, 2019 and we are working now in getting sponsors and now donations!

School Donation Drive - 100% Participation

We need your help. This year for the gala we are asking that each family contribute at least one item for the silent auction for the Gala. We are now accepting donations. Once the school gets 75% family participation the students will receive a treat at lunch. Once we reach 88% we will have the Kona Ice truck visit all the students for a Kona Ice. When we reach 100% participation the students (and teachers) will be awarded an afternoon off with Mr. Pope and Mrs. McGlynn hosting a movie matinee with fresh popped popcorn in the gym!!! Students can even bring sleeping bags if they want to! Progress for the Gala Donation Drive can be seen at the bulletin board outside the school office.

Donations will be accepted at the front office. If you have any questions about what to donate or need to contact someone from the Gala committee feel free to email

Ticket sales will begin soon. Keep an eye out for that information which will be communicated soon.
