Dear Parents and Guardians of St. Francis of Assisi School,

Spirit of St. Francis
What do we mean when we say this?  What is the charism of our patron saint?  St. Francis of Assisi was a man of strength, boldness, and courage.  He stepped out of his comfort zone to answer God's call of humble service.  He sacrificed his own wealth to illuminate a way of living that relied solely on the faithfulness of God through the generosity of others .  We are inspired by his servant leadership and look for ways to embody the fruits of his ministry here at our school. 
This year, we are adding a service opportunity at Auction.  There will be a station entitled, "Spirit of St. Francis".  We recognized that there has been a ministry quietly and humbly serving the needs of our community, whether it's welcoming a new child into the family, caring for someone who is sick at home, or saying goodbye to a beloved member of the family.  Through our Catholic Identity volunteers, they have shared their own time, talent, and treasure providing gift cards, meal trains, and sponsoring hot lunches for students. This year we are inviting you into this ministry. We want to set them up with funds for any needs that may arise in 2020-2021, so they do not have to give alone.
Please prayerfully consider donating Saturday night so that we can build a designated fund, solely for the provision of meals for families in need.  You can purchase raffle tickets in the following denominations - $5/1 ticket, $10/2 tickets, or $25/8 tickets via qr code at the auction. The Spirit of St. Francis basket contains 2 tickets to every event that the school hosts along with several bottles of excellent wine, selected by our sommelier.  A winner will be chosen Saturday night. Thank you in advance for supporting this new tradition that will allow an old tradition to endure.  Through your prayers and the spirit of perseverance, I pray your Lenten journey will be enriched by your almsgiving and gift of charity.
Walking in his footsteps,
Jeannette Lambert

CDPH does not recommend cancellation of community events at this time if no COVID-19 cases exist within the community.

The CDC has noted that older adults, as well as people who have serious, chronic medical conditions are at higher risk and should avoid crowds as much as possible.  We encourage you to apply personal discretion when determining your participation in the Gala.  As always, participation in this event is voluntary.

Thank you for your cooperation. 
Keeping Our Students Healthy
Local health officials continue to emphasize common-sense steps to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including:
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Staying home when you are sick
  • Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing (If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.)
Please keep your children home if they show signs of illness:  fever, vomiting, excessive coughing with mucus, or nasal drainage with green mucus.  Child must be fever and vomit free for 24 hours before returning to school.  Together we can keep our children safe!
