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

"On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me"......450 students singing and dancing with glee.  We spent the day at Servite High School with your children rehearsing for tonight's much anticipated Christmas Program.  Three buses transported, in waves, excited students who were surprised and in awe of how beautifully the theater had been decorated for our arrival.  What a treat the Servite Theater Staff had waiting for us. We are incredibly grateful to work with such a dedicated, humble, and committed crew.

Many hours of preparation and planning went into bringing an idea to life.  We took to heart parent feedback we received to help ease the burden of having to take time off from work to enjoy their child's performance.  For families with multiple students, this added to the holiday stress. At St Francis of Assisi School, we are blessed to have the right artistic staff to create a new Christmas production.  Mr. Walswick, theatrical director, and Mrs. Lodin, music director, wove together faith and performance, providing students with an environment to use their God-given talents.  

I hold a special place in my heart for the performing arts.  I have seen how these opportunities can provide a platform for students to shine in new and exciting ways.  Theater provides a backdrop for positive communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity - all skills we work on daily at St. Francis for their future success.  I hope you all will be moved by the work and talent of your children and feel the hope and joy of Advent tonight as we celebrate together!

Preparing the Way,

Jeannette Lambert
Principal
