Office of the President
May the Lord give you His blessings!
Greetings and welcome to a new school year. I hope you are having an enjoyable summer with your family.
I am looking forward to personally welcoming the new members of the St. Francis family. Once again, I believe we will have a great freshman class. I assure you that the faculty and staff will do their best to make you feel at home. I want to thank Mr. Moran and the Academic team for everything they do.
During the summer, our Operations Manager Mr. Frank Nevaril, ensures that maintenance projects keep our campus beautiful. In addition, the maintenance staff will organize our annual cleaning of all classrooms, touch up paint on the campus, re-coat the blacktop in the parking areas, trim trees, and re-landscape areas of the school. We are also in the process of redoing the gym’s foyer, adding some new lights to the theater, improving our technology, doing a few things that are needed in the athletic area and planting a new oak tree. Your participation in the Annual Fund, which supports projects not covered by tuition and fees, has helped us to achieve these goals. We are grateful for your generosity and support.
For new parents, and those with an additional son, there will be a mandatory New Parent Meeting on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 7:00 pm. It is essential that all new parents attend this meeting, even if you have a returning student. There will be a demonstration of the Parent Plus Portals software program, an immediate on-line tool to access your son’s academic information. We will also review our comprehensive development program.
Our Annual Golf Classic will be held on Monday, October 15, 2018 at Brookside Golf Club. Our golf committee is already hard at work under the leadership of Kevin Danni. Our goal is to fill both courses at Brookside. We have enclosed a flyer; we hope that you will join us for a fun filled day of golf activities. The proceeds create scholarships for deserving St. Francis students (please see enclosed flyer).
Please mark your calendars for POSH Saturday, March 23, 2019 to be held on campus. If you are interested in volunteering, please speak with Tim Murphy at ext. 923.
I look forward to welcoming you in August. In the meantime, please know that you are remembered in my daily prayers and at Mass. And please continue to say one “Our Father” daily for the well being of the entire St. Francis community.
Sincerely in Jesus and Francis,
Fr. Tony Martí, OFM Cap
