Parent Survey – Please Complete

Current Parent Survey

Last week we shared a link to an online survey for current parents here at St. Francis. For all who have responded to the survey – thank you! Across all four grades, your daughters averaged a 93% response rate! If you have not completed the survey, please complete the survey by Monday, March 27. Your perspective is an important part of our strategic planning process. Thank you for taking time to respond.


St. Francis Stories: Emily Bradley

The gifts each St. Francis student possess are vast and can often go unrecognized, not for lack of caring or interest, but simply because there’s so much our students do outside of school time and walls. For example, participating in women’s youth bobsledding probably isn’t something one would equate with Sacramento or St. Francis. But sophomore Emily Bradley is doing just that!  She recently returned from Austria and is now ranked #2 in the world!  She appeared on Good Day Sacramento and is this week’s St. Francis Stories feature.


St. Francis Stories: Troubies dominate Holy Sticks matchup

Competition often inspires great stories and there’s certainly no shortage of competition this spring from our Troubadours!  If you haven’t logged on to lately or follow @SFHS.Athletics on social (HINT: some great moments are shared here), you’re missing out!  It’s hard to choose just one headline to highlight: Troubies stun defending league, section champs or Miles, Hodge lead comeback in epic LAX battle.

Introduced at our 40th Annual Auction, this year’s Fund A Vision will equip our new Troubie TV Studio with the state-of-the-art equipment it needs to bring students tangible, real-world experience in broadcasting, podcasting, production, filmmaking, screenwriting, communication and storytelling. The studio is operated completely by students; what’s missing is the cutting-edge equipment needed to help our Troubies produce first-rate broadcasts and podcasts to showcase our students and alumnae.


St. Francis Stories: We are St. Francis

Each young woman at St. Francis is an individual, on her own journey, with her own talents, interests and aspirations. Together, WE are ST. FRANCIS ❤️

During Saturday’s 40th annual auction, we debuted this very special video, starring many of our Troubies.  It was a labor of love inspired by our president, and realized by our digital media manager and friends at Univision.  We want to make sure everyone sees it and feels free to share it far and wide.  It’s the perfect installment for this week’s St. Francis Stories feature.

St. Francis Stories: SFHS Student Podcast Network

One of the easiest ways to enjoy St. Francis Stories is to listen to one of our podcasts.  Did you know we have our very own Student Podcast Network? SFHS students host, interview, and edit a variety of shows covering topics across the board.

In our most recent episode of Troubie Throwbacks, SF alumna Molly Riehl, a reporter for Good Day Sacramento and the emcee of our upcoming Sip, Savor & Support auction event, talks with Teaghan Brostrom ‘23 about what a special place St. Francis truly is… and gets a little emotional as she recalls her favorite teacher.

St. Francis Stories
St. Francis is featured on KFBK's Building a Better Sacramento segment

We’re launching a new feature in the Principal’s Newsletter called St. Francis Stories.

There are a lot of wonderful things happening on and around the St. Francis campus. We realize not everyone engages on social media (but we hope you follow us), watches local broadcasts or listens to the radio, so our hope is to make St. Francis stories as easily accessible as possible!
