Hello SFCS Families!

The faculty and staff at SFCS would like to take a moment to say "THANK YOU" to our Booster Club members for their generosity this past year!  In addition to replacing outdated equipment and ordering new uniforms on a cyclical basis, the Athletic Department continues to work on several new projects each year.   In 2021-22, the school brought back the Girls Cross Country and Cheerleading Teams, and now has a popular Equestrian Program as well.  As with starting up anything new, there are always initial start-up costs to consider.

As the SFCS’s Athletic Director, I feel that a strong Athletic Program provides a perfect balance to the child’s overall St. Francis experience and should work in harmony with the outstanding academic core curriculum and Art Department.  I am reaching out to you, and asking that your family or business consider joining the “Booster Club” by purchasing one of the Sponsorship Packages.  All monies from these sponsorship packages go directly to the Athletic Department! 

For your convenience, I have attached a Pricing Sheet with the various Sponsorship levels which includes all of the immediate benefits of each package.   Back by popular demand, and to further incentivize new sponsors to join the Booster Club, I am offering a 10% discounted rate from the listed price if your payment is received by May 27th.  When you fill out the attached form, just subtract 10% from any of the listed prices and submit your check for the discounted price.  Payments must be submitted by check only to receive the discount.  For those of you that order a gym banner, I will be in touch over the summer to go over the specifics of your logo.

Thank you for your consideration.  Please don’t hesitate to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.


Mike Weaver

SFCS Athletic Director
