Parking & Drop-off Protocol
Parent & Student Drivers, Please Read:

We ask that you familiarize yourselves with the regular school year drop off and pick up procedures. It is very important for everyone to read, study the maps and follow the  procedures. Morning will be similar to summer, however, all students must be dropped off after the brick wall closer to the gym.  The afternoon is a completely different traffic pattern, please review below.  Thank you for all of your assistance, Dean Cost

Choral Arts Awareness

Hello! My name is Katherine Sheahon and I am a senior at St. Francis High School. I have been part of the Choral Program since my freshman year. As a part of the Honors Chamber course, I record and post videos and photos of choral rehearsals and performances on the SFHS social media pages. The short questionnaire, linked below, is to learn how aware our community is of our Choral Arts program prior to August 2018 as compared to now. If you have some spare time, please consider filling it out.  Click Here to Complete

Audition Date Change - TUESDAY, 5/7/19

Have you always been interested in hula and the Hawaiian culture? Here is your opportunity.  This year-long course enables students to learn basic Hawaiian language, Polynesian dance, and history.  Through hula basics and choreography, the students will learn discipline, grace, teamwork, and commitment to reach each dancer’s full potential in hula.  Students learn techniques to dance hula gracefully through hand gestures, body movement, and facial expression, in addition to learning basic Hawaiian language and Hawaiian history.  This class performs in many of the school events, as well as some outside events. 

Nā Wāhine O ‘Olu Hula is a year-long, PE hula class in which you receive 5 PE credits after completing the course.  This would take the place of your regular PE class if you make it through auditions. Classes are every Tuesday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. If you have any other extra-curricular activities that would coincide with this day and time, please do not try out as attendance is essential.  Prior to auditions, we have two workshops.  One is a hula basics, and one is hula choreography.  Attendance in both workshops are required to audition.  Hula experience is not required.  Come join us, and embark on this journey of hula and the Hawaiian culture. 

Hula Basics Workshop: Monday, April 29th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Room 407

Hula Choreography Workshop: Tuesday, April 30th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Room 407

Hula Auditions: TUESDAY, MAY 7th instead of Friday, May 3rd beginning at 5:00 pm. in Room 407

Chicago: High School Edition

In roaring twenties Chicago, Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover, and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream” - fame, fortune, and acquittal.  

This popular show will surely sell-out -….and all that jazz.  Tickets are available now HERE.
