Dear St. Francis of Assisi students and families,
In times of difficulty, Lord, we appreciate the support and encouragement of others.
In better times we feel strong and more secure.
Remind us then to co-operate with other people and look out for the needs of others, being ready to offer a smile, a word, and other support and encouragement.
Computers for Schools

There will be benchmark assessments on Tuesday of this week and next for grades 8 and 9 students.
Students will be asked to complete a wellness survey on Thursday. This survey is for staff to gather the opinions of students on various aspects of school services.
On Thursday and Friday, we will be doing vision screening with our Grade 8 students, and some new students. A letter will be sent home if follow-up with an optometrist is recommended.
A reminder to families of students who would like to take part in Confirmation preparation. The classes start Monday, October 16th in the CYO Hall at 6:30 pm. The student books, parent guides and registration forms will be available for those who need them.
