Dear St. Francis Families,

Welcome back, and I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and restful New Year!  It is hard to believe we are in the second-half of the 2020-2021 school year. I know the two weeks of Christmas break probably moved at a different pace, but now that school is back in session, a sense of normalcy should return to your households. The remaining months of this semester are going to move quite rapidly, and it’s important that we remind our students to plan ahead, stay on target, and not procrastinate. 

As the pace of the semester picks-up, we also want to ensure that our Troubies utilize the various support systems we have in place at St. Francis, such as asking teachers for assistance, signing up for tutoring, working with Guidance and/or Wellness counselors to decrease some of the inherent anxiety that happens toward the end of the semester. Given everything we’ve been dealing with since last March 2020, it is even more important that we continue to work together to support our students. As St. Teresa of Calcutta reminds us, we belong to each other.

While we are still dealing with the impact of COVID, we are continuing to plan some special events to celebrate our 80th Anniversary, albeit, in a different fashion. We’ll host our first-ever Curbside Crab Feed on Saturday, January 30th, and a virtual Revelry Auction on Saturday, March 6th. Additional information are in the articles below.  As always, thank you for your continued support of our students and school. 

St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us!
St. Clare of Assisi, pray for us!

In the spirit of Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),

Elias Mendoza
