Principal’s Newsletter 2/14/20

Dear St. Francis Families,

Earlier this week, official acceptance letters went out to our new Troubies and their families. The class of 2024 will come to St. Francis in a few short weeks to register for their classes. We are excited to welcome all of our new families. We look forward to a fun, faith-filled, and rewarding four years together.

I hope you have a wonderful Presidents Holiday, and enjoy the three-day weekend. We look forward to the coming week, as we observe our Faculty Appreciation Week. It is a week in which we celebrate our faculty and staff for their commitment to educating all of your daughters. 

Dear Lord, thank you for the gifted faculty and staff that have given their talents to educating our young women. We thank them for their hard work and dedication, and we pray that they may continue to work in support of our school community.

Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),

Elias Mendoza
Principal

Principal’s Newsletter 2/07/20

Dear St. Francis Families,

The month of February is here. While the sunny weather is a little misleading, it is not spring yet. There are 14 weeks left of this academic year, and there is plenty of work to do in the remaining weeks of the semester. Let’s encourage our Troubies to keep their eyes on the prize and not to lose sight of the finish line, whether it be graduation or completing their respective grade level.

Looking ahead to next week, Valentine’s Day is next Friday, February 14th. Several of our students will begin to ask about balloons, flowers, stuffed animals, chocolates, and other items be delivered to the school. Unfortunately, we do not accept any deliveries for students due to health and safety concerns. We are also unable to store them in the front office. We encourage our students to celebrate after school and/or have those items delivered to their home address. We appreciate your understanding, and I hope all of our Troubies feel loved and appreciated on Valentine’s Day.

Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),

Elias Mendoza
Principal
