and Fine Arts Night 
This week's adventures...
 Just another amazing week here at St. Francis, that included fantastic field trips and a Fine Arts Night beyond measure! Our Pre-K and Kindergarten students had the picture perfect day for their field trip to Save the Bay on Monday, and our teachers absolutely raved about how spectacular the day was and how wonderfully behaved our students were on the trip. Our mid week Fine Arts Night was absolutely phenomenal, bringing the "house down" with musical talent and artistic ability! Numerous parents mentioned how impressive the show was, and how each year it seems to get better. A HUGE thank you goes to Mr. Borges, Miss Cournoyer, Mrs. Gomes, Miss Wilson, and Miss Bonnie, who continue to bring to the surface the gifts and talents that our students naturally possess.

There are a great number of end of year festivities on the horizon, and it will be imperative that you stay informed of all news and announcements by reading all school emails and visiting our website often. Following finals, a retreat, and a super fun field trip to Lake Compounce, our eighth graders will be the first to depart from the school family, as commencement exercises for the Class of 2018 take place on Monday, June 4th.
Have a wonderful long weekend, and God bless!
