Senior Painted Parking Spaces

One of our favorite traditions is Seniors Painted parking spaces to benefit our scholarship programs. Students may personalize their parking spot by creating a design that reflects their interests and/or shows school spirit. Designs must be pre-approved by the Administration prior to painting and cannot violate the tenants of the St. Francis Catholic High School. All template designs must be turned in no later than July 13th (absolutely no late templates will be accepted).

Citizens of the World

Lauren & Louise Morr '23

This week’s St. Francis Stories spotlight is the graduating duo of Lauren and Louise Morr and how they found inspiration serving at a day camp for the children of refugee families in the Sacramento area starting in 2019.  This summer will be their fifth one helping at the camp.  Oh!  They also happen to be great lacrosse players and will be attending UCLA in the fall.  Lauren and Louise truly emulate the four pillars of St. Francis: Faith, Excellence, Leadership, Service.
