What an awesome show from our singers and musicians this past Wednesday at Fine Arts Night!   Students got to see if their art submissions won any prizes, and then knocked our socks off with their God-given talents...kudos to Mr. Borges, Miss Bonnie, Miss Cournoyer, and Ms. McNamara who helped them shine! 
Enjoy  a 2015-16

As we enjoy our long weekend, let us remember to thank God for our military !

Since Wednesday evening's Fine Arts Night,  I find myself reminiscing about how amazing our student performers were!  The show truly was one of the best to date, and I was completely impressed by the talent that has been uncovered, fostered and celebrated here at St. Francis!  Thank you Mr. Borges, Miss Cournoyer, Miss Bonnie and Miss MacNamara for bringing to the surface our students' full potential!  I cannot recall the last school music performance that I had goosebumps and tears in my eyes... nice job everyone!  

The finish line is definitely in sight, as we turn our calendars over to June.  Numerous end of year festivities are planned and in order not to "miss out" on any of them, frequent checks of email, as well as our school website will be necessary.

Please keep our Grade 8 students in your prayers this week, as they finish up their final days at St. Francis!  Finals, an Appreciation Dinner, a retreat, and an end of year field trip are the precursors to their Baccalaureate Mass, Final Celebration, and then Graduation on the 6th!  

Have a wo nderful long weekend and God bless!
