    All Fall Sports Parent Meeting 
     
    Every St. Francis fall student athlete needs to have at least one parent attend this meeting.  The meeting will begin in the gym at 6:00 on Monday, August 21 with breakout meetings for each sport/level to follow.  We look forward to seeing everyone there.
     
    Mother/Daughter Ceremonies
     
    The Fall SportsLeader  "Jersey (or sport variant) Ceremony" will be conducted by our Troubie Mothers/Mother-Figures.  Returning parents will recognize that these roles have been flipped from last year.  Here are our Mother/Daughter Ceremony dates per sport:
    • Cross Country "Jersey Ceremony", Monday August 21, following the team parent meeting (approximately 6:45)
    • Golf "Bag Ceremony", Monday August 21, following the team parent meeting (approximately 6:45)

  • Help Troubies Help Homeless Students!

    The offertory collection at next week's Welcome Mass (8/23/17) will benefit homeless children at Next Move. Donations will be collected during Mass. Cash or checks are accepted. Donations will be used to help purchase supplies for students using the Children's Service Room. Reflecting on her Next Move volunteer experience, Senior Christian Service Leader, Marisa Yamada,wrote: 
    Serving at Next Move is a great way to make a big impact on homeless children. Volunteers work hands on with children, teaching them how to read and write and helping them on their school homework. In addition to homework, volunteers help and participate in arts and crafts activities, playing dolls or Legos, and even video games. It is in the Children's Service room where the kids of the shelter gather, learn, and play with one another, while their parents are taking classes how to get back on their feet. The most meaningful experience that I have had at Next Move came from a little boy I was helping learn how to read. After a few weeks of sounding out letters and words in books, he was able to successfully identify and sound out many words. This moment is very important to me because it truly showed me how much impact and help I can provide to a growing child. My Next Move experience has inspired and motivated me to continue serving at the shelter. Next Move is a great, comfortable, and welcoming environment, which makes it both easy and fun to serve there.

  • Principal's Message (8/18/17)

    Dear Families,
     
    We had a fantastic start to the new academic year! I enjoyed seeing all of our new and returning Troubies walk onto campus on Tuesday morning. Our young women filled Serra Court and our corridors with such positive energy. I know we are going to have a fantastic year.
     
    Additionally, as you may have noticed, the academic year began on the feast day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15th). It is an important date on the liturgical calendar, as it commemorates the death of the Blessed Virgin’s passing into eternal life.
     
    As we begin this new academic year, I pray the Virgin Mary keep our St. Francis community safe, and to enlighten us with hope and compassion.

    St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us.
     
    Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),

    Elias Mendoza
    Principal
