Why Now?
Campaign for St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School

February 14, 2019

Dear St. Francis Parents and Friends,

I hope you enjoyed reading the Campaign brochure I sent as last week's message. This piece gives you an overview of  why these projects matter and why the time to build is now.

This week, I want to give you some examples of the need for Phase 1 and 2 as it relates to our facilities master plan and how these building projects would address the challenges I know many of you have experienced firsthand.

Phase 1 (Preschool and Pre-K)
  • We would like to meet the growing demand of those families seeking a faith- based education for their children. Currently, we have a waiting list for our Preschool and Pre-K for the 2019-2010 school year.
  • We want to ensure the stability and vitality of the school for the future. Wouldn't you like your grandchildren to attend SFA?
Phase 2 (Multi-Purpose Facility)
  • A Multi-Purpose Facility would allow SFA to have Mass or Community Prayer for the entire student body on a rainy day. This week, only 5th-8th grade students were able to attend Mass due to space limitations at SFA. In addition, we had to cancel Community Prayer due to rain and lack of accommodations.
  • With a Multi-Purpose Facility, we would not have to cancel or reschedule basketball practice or games on rainy days. Nor we would have to play on our opponent's court or pay for court time at Travis Ranch School.
  • By having a Multi-Purpose Facility, we would not need to modify events and activities that compete for space such as the Science Fair, Musical Theater and Ukulele classes. The Glynn Center is used for multiple meetings and activities each week. These and other groups have to move their planned practice or presentation because we do not have the capacity to house them properly.
As you can see, the time to build is now. Help us give our students and future students the tools and space necessary to reach their fullest potential. Participation from everyone will make these projects a reality.
