“Everything is Awesome When You’re Part of a Team”

Thank you to all students, parents, and staff for a fantastic start to the school year!

Everything is awesome here! We have a great team! We appreciate all of your patience and understanding as buses and cars must use the same drive during our construction. St. Francis de Sales said, "Have patience in all things, But, first of all with yourself." Praise be to God for the wisdom of saints!

We also appreciate your patience as we get our new emails up and running. Everything should be working by the end of the week, but we apologize if you have tried to contact a teacher or other staff member in these first few days and did not receive a response. Please call the office if you need immediate help with a question or concern.

Please be sure to look at all the items in the Thursday folder. The Falcon Family volunteer packet is one of the items. We are truly a great school with your help and support. Please take some time to discern how you can help us this year and return the packet by August 29th. We truly appreciate your support and look forward to your involvement.

Please remember Friday's are whole school mass days. We ask that students do not wear shorts on mass days. We would also like to extend a standing invitation to have you join us for mass. A family that prays together stays together!

Specials will begin next week, so remember; students wear their gym uniform on their assigned day. If you and your child are unsure of their gym schedule, please call the office.

Please also take a moment to look at the bios of Mrs. Reese and Mr. Eckman. The brochure was published before they were hired. We are thrilled to have them here and want you to get to know them!

Thank you again for a wonderful start to the school year! Please continue to pray for all of our students, staff, and families! We are praying for all of you! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sincerely, In His Service,

Mrs. Parrish and the St. Francis de Sales Staff
