We hope that everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend!

Last Week of School Sign-Ups
The last day of school is approaching and, as you can probably imagine, it’s going to look different this year. Please sign up using the links below to bring your child/ren to their classroom one last time for this school year. Please plan on dropping off any textbooks, library books, or other school items, and pick up anything your child/ren might have left in the classroom along with their final report card.
The Mini Teachers
Families are not the only ones missing the way things used to be! Mrs. Clement and Ms. Keenan understood that their students were missing their teachers as much as the teachers have missed their students, sooooooooo……
They snuck into student Fly By packets and hitched a ride to each student’s home to be closer to them. The Minis have been VERY busy…helping with classwork, praying the rosary, AND having a blast with the students. Students will complete their final narrative of the year chronicling the adventures of these two adventurous Mini Teachers. (Teachers are sneaky that way…..) Check out these pictures to see just what our Mini Teachers have been up to………. And how much fun their students have had with them!

SFA Heart Hero Ambassador
Melinda Pogue (3rd grade) has been asked to be a Heart Hero Ambassador for the American Heart Association! This past year, Melinda raised over $1500 for the St. Francis Heart Hero Challenge in honor of her Father and Aunt who were born with very special hearts. The Heart Hero Ambassadors is a group that includes young heart survivors, family members of those affected by heart/stroke conditions, and students who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in support of the American Heart Association’s efforts to build healthier lives. Melinda will be participating, along with other kids for the Western United States, in a variety of activities to bring awareness to heart health at St. Francis and in our great community.
