Good Evening St. Francis School Parents and Guardians,
Happy New Year! I hope the Christmas holidays were a blessed time for you and your family and an opportunity to get some well deserved "down time" that all of us need. I would like to thank the school community for your delicious and considerate gifts. I am grateful for your generous
me, the faculty and staff, and the Campaign for SFA.
Among the gifts I received was a book about leading with purpose. The timing was serendipitous as I adapt to my new role. Reading the book prompted me to think about what I teach, moving from subject matter and academic skills to working with a talented and accomplished group of administrators/educators, and now preparing to meet the needs of current and future students beyond the next 20 years. I love my role as an educational leader and the impact of my work on others. In my various positions as teacher, coach, administrator, and now President, I am proud to have an influential role in inspiring, motivating, affirming, and promoting positive outcomes for children, teachers, and families.
The break also provided time to recharge my batteries as well as an opportunity to
focus on my purpose as the leader of the Campaign for St. Francis of Assisi School. The campus enhancements we have planned will promote our educational ministry, cultivate the spiritual and developmental skills that our students will need to build a bright future, and continue to differentiate us as a school of choice in Orange County.
We are making the campaign more public so look for campaign updates in my weekly
Message from the President.
We've raised over $1 million in donations and pledges and now we are looking to raise the next $1.8 million needed to begin work on phase 1. Thank yo
families who demonstrated
belief in our future by submitting end-of-t
I look forward to the coming year and all that it has to bring as well as
partnering with the school community as we embark upon a bold future for St. Francis of Assisi School!
you and your family a healthy, prosperous and joy-filled year!
