Congratulations to both Pre-School and 8th Grade classes on their Graduation Ceremonies!  The Pre-School classes had a summer theme for their decorations and enjoyed refreshments after their program and diplomas were handed out.  The 8th Grade students were honored with many special awards to celebrate their academic progress, as well as their stewardship over the last 8 years here at St. Francis Solanus.  We would like to thank all parents and teachers who helped with both events.  We will miss the 8th grade students, but know that they will represent our school in the best way possible in their next academic pursuit.

Principal, Lori Shepard
