Sophomore Events


Sophomore Events & Activities

Sophomore year is an exciting time for members of the Class of 2018 and their families. With a year of high school behind them, Sophomores have gained confidence and see many options for the three years ahead of them at St. Francis. The calendar to the right contains events and activities that may be of particular interest to Sophomores, from liturgies and retreats to traditional events and fundraisers.

We hope that involvement in the life of the St. Francis community will be rewarding for both you and your daughter. Your attendance at the many athletic, arts, academic team and club activities during the school year may be determined by your daughter’s interests. We particularly encourage your participation in the parent events and activities. Some of the sophomore student activities are also included for your information. If you have questions, please contact one of the administration or staff members below.
