Thursday, December 20th was our annual Advent Concert performed by the entire school. Each class performed a song with the finale being the telling of the Christmas story and performed by the Kindergarten class. It was a great way to get ready for our Christmas break. Thank you to Mrs. Sweeney and all of her assistants for another wonderful Advent Concert.
On Monday, December 10th, our students had the opportunity to go Christmas shopping at the St. Francis Thrift Shop. The students arrived with lists in hand and the Thrift Shop Elves helped them complete their shopping. Thank you very much to the Thrift Shop volunteers for helping at this yearly event. The students have the best time and really look forward to it each year. To help out the Thrift Shop, we are collecting gently used brown paper bags. They can be dropped off in the School Lobby.
Thank you to the FSA and the Knights of Columbus for another successful Breakfast with Santa. The students look forward to this event every year where the Knights cook breakfast and students get to see Santa and have their picture taken as well.
That St. Francis Catholic School has a used uniform closet? We have a wide selection of new and gently used articles of clothing for Pre-K through Eighth Grade. These items are all donated back to the school and are free for any family/child who wants them. Before you buy new uniforms, please come check out what we have in stock. Or if you have any uniforms that do not fit your child anymore, please bring them to the school office to be offered to someone else.
