PTO is Offering School Supply Kits
Once again, PTO is selling custom SFSS school supply kits for every grade level from MWSC, a local company. It has all the school supplies needed for each grade level. This is the link: https://mwsupplycentral.com/product-category/schools/st-francis/ PTO makes a small profit off each kit sold. With that money, they purchase school supplies that teachers need for classroom use. The kits are delivered to the classrooms for Blessing of the Backpacks. The deadline to order is mid-July. An exact date will be announced in a later email.
A 2023-2024 school supply list will be on the website soon. It will be included in a future email about the 2023-2024 school year as well.
On Sunday, August 13, Blessing of the Backpacks will be at 4:00pm in church. Families will proceed to the school to drop off school supplies after the brief prayer service. The event will conclude before 5:00pm.
The first day of the school year for kindergarten through eighth grade students will be Wednesday, August 16. School will dismiss at 11:30am. There will not be lunch or child care.
On Thursday, August 17, preschool will have their first day of school. Kindergarten through eighth grade will be in school all day. There will be lunch and child care.
