Sister School Update

Sr. Martha and the students of St. Francis Girls Senior High School in Jirapa, Ghana, Africa send us a huge thank you and offer us God’s blessing for our donation of $10,000 this year. The funds were collected during our Homecoming Week and at our Sophomore and Junior Family Masses. These funds are helping them repair their bore holes (water wells) which supply the school with water. These wells stopped functioning. Water is something we take for granted with our water bottles and blue filtering stations on campus.

Chromebook Purchase (Juniors)

We are offering the option for juniors to purchase their Chromebook. Juniors who are interested in pre-purchasing their Chromebooks now for use beyond graduation in 2018 may do so at a discounted rate of $129.   Note: The Chromebook will still be managed by SFHS until graduation next year.

Upon graduation, Chromebooks purchased by students will be cleared of all school management. Students will be able to use them as their own personal devices.


Wellness Window

The recently released Nexflix series “13 Reasons Why” has come to our attention because of its depiction of teen suicide and the show’s growing popularity among teenagers. Our students have been talking about the series to teachers, counselors, trusted adults, and especially to each other. We want to include you in the discussion.
