Your Weekly School Update
April 6, 2018
This week's adventures...
Alleluia! Christ is risen, as He said!
We were all so pleased to welcome your children back to school on Tuesday, to sing the joyful praises of Our Lord's resurrection! Alleluia's were unburied, and together we continue to celebrate what Christ did for US ! Students have begun preparing for our annual Easter Celebration , set to take place on Friday, April 13th at 1:15pm. Please plan on joining us, if you are able, to be a first hand witness to our Easter joy!

IOWA testing will be finalized this coming week, which marks "the beginning of the end" of the school year! Please stay well informed of all current happenings on our website, as well as the "Upcoming Milestones" section of the newsletter.

Our 6th annual auction and gala is quickly closing in on us. Please consider joining us for The Adventure ! The evening is a wonderful opportunity to socialize and have fun, while raising necessary funds for our school.

Looking forward to warmer weather!
Have a great weekend and God bless!

woman-jogging.jpg
There is a very special 5k happening on May 6 in Mattapoisett in memory of Nicole Podkowa, the wife of a local doctor some of you may know, who passed away from cancer and left a loving husband and two young sons behind.  

Dr. Podkowa and the race organizer are offering St. Francis families a $10 discount on every registration!  

The race is filling up fast (The Podkowas are well loved!!), the money goes to a great cause, and it would be so nice to have a big group turnout. If you are interested, please register online  here and use the word  Special10 in the discount code field to get the $10 off.
