Happy Friday, everyone! This week's highlights include our awesome Easter Celebration, the ever-so-popular Scholastic Book Fair, and of course, the heavy snowfall on Monday afternoon! Hopefully that was the last of the winter weather, and we can get back outside next week and enjoy more springlike weather!  

The school year is certainly flying by and when we reenter after April vacation, there will be MANY events and happenings here at the school that you will want to be aware of.  Please make it a habit to check our school website frequently for upcoming and calendar-worthy events.  If summer plans are on your radar, Summer Fun at St. Francis may be an option, or for some of our middle school students the Camps at Bishop Stang may be an option.  

It's Gala time! Next Friday night at the Century House, we will gather for the event of the school year.  Please join us if you are able for much socializing and fun, while we raise the necessary funds to keep our school  GROW-ing  in a positive direction. Reservations must be made by Tuesday morning, in order to give our headcount to the venue.

Have a wonderful weekend and God bless.

~ Mrs. Russo
