“For it is in giving that we receive.” - St. Francis


Dear Families,

Please join the Saint Francis of Assisi School Board, Father Ismael and myself in helping to build our Student Scholarship Fund by participating in Giving Tuesday. 

What is Giving Tuesday?

First started in 2012, Giving Tuesday is a special day each year meant to unofficially “open the giving season.”  Giving Tuesday started as a movement to fundamentally shift the sentiment around this time of year, from buying to giving – from selfish to selfless – from focusing on the economy to focusing on the community.

It is so important to support our own school community during these challenging times we continue to face.  Money raised from the Scholarship Fund goes directly back to our families who are in need of assistance so we can ensure they still have access to a quality, faith based education at St. Francis of Assisi School.  

Please know of our deepest gratitude to each of you for your loving, courageous and extraordinary ministry to our Catholic school community.  Thanking you for saying yes to St. Francis of Assisi School.

Grounded in Grace,

Father Ismael, Pastor
Cathy VanderKlugt, Principal
Lesley Schooler, School Board President
