It is certainly not the norm that our school family is able to make the trek down Main Street to Mass during this time of the school year, but we were blessed enough to do so this week on Monday. The weather changed quite quickly, however, and Tuesday brought with it a new set of challenges with the rapid snowfall and hazardous roads. Thank you for your understanding and support as we do our best to make decisions with both safety and convenience in mind. While our snowy dismissal on Tuesday had its share of small trials, at the end of the day all was safe and sound. 

Also on Tuesday, if the forecast wasn’t enough to create excitement, our seventh and eighth graders generated increased activity as judges, parents and younger students circulated the gym to get a good look at their Science Fair projects. Once again, our students demonstrated that their hard work and exploration of a science topic were a valuable part of the process. As always, the student presentations were well executed and we congratulate all of a job well done! 

The Feast of St. Valentine was a great opportunity to celebrate our love for one another! Small classroom parties and valentine exchanges were the highlight of the day for many of our students. The festivities truly set the stage for a much needed rest and reprieve for both our students and teachers alike! Please have a wonderful winter break, and we will see you all back and ready to learn on the 25 th .

Thanks for all that you continue to do in support of our school and its students. 
Have a wonderful break!

Please Note:

MAP Growth Student Progress Reports, which now includes the data from the winter testing just completed in January, are going home in Friday Folders today. As data builds between test sessions it assists us in honing in on the basic skills that have been mastered and those that need reinforcement. It will also assist us in setting and achieving attainable learning goals for/with each individual student.
Potential NEW students are "spending-a-day", and if a slot is not taken it will be given away.
Don't risk losing your slot!

Please send in the $120 per student registration fee to the office to complete your online registration process.

STRAW POLL: Are you interested in the Summer Fun at St. Francis Program?
We need to make plans
for our Summer Fun Program but we need to know who is interested first!
Help us to gauge age-level interest and outings feasibility by clicking here to let us know if you are planning on or would be interested in registering your child(ren) for our summer camp this summer, which traditionally runs in July for 3 weeks. (Currently open to Preschool age through Grade 5...but is dependent on interest) Your feedback does not commit you to the weeks, but will help us determine what is possible and necessary for space and staffing.
This space will be used to request parental support and volunteerism at school!
The auction is quickly approaching, and much help is needed to prepare for the night of the event! Basket making, cutting and pasting, decorating and working the night of the event are all areas that we could use assistance. Please click here to let the SEC committee know how you might be willing to help!

Thank you!
