Parent Organizations


Alum Parents

The Troubie Parents for Life (TPFL) group is comprised of parents of St. Francis alums, who take “four years that last a lifetime” slogan seriously! Keeping in line with the schools’ saying, “we only graduate students,” these  parents wish to continue the great friendships and build more memories interacting with the St. Francis community so that all may flourish.

The TPFL leadership group meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:00pm, currently via Zoom.


Black Parents’ Group

The purpose of the Black Parents’ Group is to embrace and honor the identity of the Black students and families at St. Francis High School. We support and partner with the Black Student Union and the Black Alumnae Group to enrich the SFHS experience through speakerships, sponsored projects, and cultural exchanges so that current students and families have a deep sense of belonging within the St. Francis community. Our group provides a space where Black parents and parents of Black children can openly share their SFHS experience and support one another during our children’s high school journey. 

If you have any questions regarding the Black Parents’ Group, please reach out to us at


Booster Club

Every parent of a St. Francis Troubadour is a member of the St. Francis Booster Club. It is the best way to support our teams, earn service hours, meet other parents and have fun doing it. Boosters support events such as Crab Feed and Booster Q’s.

If you are looking for a fun and easy way to meet people, get involved in the school community and earn parent hours, come join the SFHS Booster Club for our monthly meetings:
