Dear St. Francis of Assisi students and families,
Prayer for Holy Week
O Father, most merciful, in the beginning you created us,
And by the passion of your only Son you created us anew.
Work in us now, both to will and to do what pleases you. Since we are weak and can do no good things by ourselves,
Grant us your grace and heavenly blessing, that in whatever work we engage we may do all to your honor and glory.
Keep us from sin and empower us daily to do good works,
That as long as we live in the body we may always perform service to you.
After our departure give us pardon of all our sins, and receive us to eternal life;
Through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.
Students will be participating in the OurSchool Survey this week. This survey allows students to share their feedback anonymously on their experiences at school, school environment, and school improvement programs. Please see the attached letter for more information. Click here.
Student Led Conferences
Report cards will be sent home next week. Please save the date: Thursday April 20th for our Student Led Conferences (3:30pm to 7:00pm).
The 2023 Yearbook is now for sale! This will be the first St. Francis of Assisi yearbook ever. Not only are you getting a memento of all the amazing things we do here - you’re also getting a piece of history. For Yearbook 2022, we had a sizeable waiting list at the beginning of this year for people who did not order one when they had the opportunity. Unfortunately, most people on that list did not get the 2022 Yearbook. We only receive enough books to fill orders placed on time. I would love if everyone here at SFACSS had a Yearbook in their hands! Let’s make it happen this year.
The Yearbook costs $40 and all orders must be in by May 26th. Orders ship in September and are picked up at the school. Click here! Or scan the QR code on any Yearbook 2023 posters around the school. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
