Pray the Rosary Today
The pope has called on the whole world to say the Rosary at 1:00 Pacific time today. He’s live-streaming. I would ask that our Catholic School take part in this very special request. Please follow the link below to participate:
A Note From Fr. Ismael
Good morning, hope all is going or getting smooth. You, teachers, staff and the students and their families are in my prayers. Today in the celebration of St. Joseph I pray for all of you. The mass is on our website. I have being praying all-around the grounds of the school- classrooms, offices and parish buildings, spiritual way to be united. Everyday we will celebrate the Mass at 8:00am at the same time all of you begin your classes. We will do livestream. Love and prayers to all of you: Teachers, staff, children and their families from  Fr. Rafal, Fr. Chico and myself. Yours in Christ, Fr. Ismael Gtz.
The Living History Project
During this unprecedented time in our nation’s history, 7th Graders are working on a Living History Project. Each day, they write a journal entry chronicling the day’s events in our world and in their own lives. This entry from yesterday comes from Bianca:

Dear Journal,
The government said that we might not go back to school till the end of summer. I don’t want that to happen. I miss school and all my friends. I am so bored and there’s nothing to do, but just do homework and face time my friends. I normally don’t say this, but I’d rather be at school than be at home. I also miss all my teachers.
Sincerely,
Bianca
Video Conferencing With Students
St. Francis of Assisi School believes that technology should be used as a vehicle of communication, analysis, and research in light of Catholic values and moral decision-making. SFA is committed to the integration and effective use of current and future technology to further the educational mission of SFA and the Church’s mission of spreading the Gospel to all people.
As we provide sustained learning for your children, one of the technologies we may use is a video conferencing tool like Google Meet or Zoom. However, before your child can be in a video conference, we need permission from you. Please complete this form as soon as possible to grant us your permission:
Thank you!

Nut-Free School
Due to the severe, sudden, and life-threatening nature of peanut & tree nut allergies, St. Francis of Assisi School is a NUT-FREE school environment. No peanuts or nuts are allowed on campus at any time nor at any school-sponsored events- on or off campus. Thank you for supporting our proactive policy.
