Virtual Information Sessions for Interested Families
In lieu of our traditional Open House, TFS is holding monthly Virtual Information Sessions for interested families. At these sessions, they will have a short PowerPoint presentation to present an overview of the school, they will have teachers present, one from middle school and one from elementary, and a parent representative.  These sessions will present a small window into the school and allow for questions to be asked of administration, faculty and parent representatives.

Parish News

In the spirit of giving, let's come together as a preschool community and participate in the following wonderful parish service opportunities! 

The Advent Giving Tree
Every year we provide a parish wide opportunity to share the spirit of the Christmas season with families in need through our Advent Giving Trees. These trees will not only benefit several St. Francis families, but a number of organizations who work directly with people in need. Due to Covid-19, the Advent Giving Tree will look a little different this year. Instead of choosing an ornament from a tree, this year there will be three different ways to donate through our website. You may choose to: make a financial donation, choose a gift or choose a gift card from our Sign-Up Genius links.  
For more information and links to sign up geniuses.
Preschool can drop off donations on December 7th-9th at morning carpool 
We, at St. Francis of Assisi, want to thank you of behalf of all our Community Organizations and Ministry Groups for helping to make someone's Christmas a little more special. 

Virtual "Lessons and Carols"  

Saturday, December 19 at 7:30 pm.  


The Music Ministry is developing an evening, streamed through all our platforms, that will focus on live and recorded music clips, as well as readings from sacred scripture.  


More information will be sent out on Monday at Noon. 


Did you know St. Francis of Assisi Preschool had a Facebook page?
