SEEKING PLAYGROUND BALLS AND SIDEWALK CHALK TO BRING CHILDREN CHEER!

GRADE 8 SERVICE / COMMITTEE ON CONSCIENCE -collection after Mass this weekend! (Sat: 4-6 and Sun: 11-12:30)

Traditionally, rising Grade 8 students at St. Francis of Assisi spend a good portion of their Summer Holiday engaged, humbly, in the work of service to the Community. With the restrictions posed by the pandemic, that work will be a challenge, but not impossible.
Part of their work this summer will be focused on gathering items for groups or individuals who live in or at the edge of poverty or hope. They would be truly grateful for any help they might be able to receive as they search for small inexpensive items which might be easily purchasable many of us in the the SFA community. Items will collected in the carpool line at different times!
You can help them by watching for announcements here and by directing any items you can donate to the Class of 2021!

THIS SATURDAY, SUNDAY the Grade 8 students will still be collecting playground PLAYGROUND BALLS OR SIDEWALK CHALK for 'Summer Fun Bags' for children in need!

The Class of 2020 graduates this Friday! Take a moment to reflect on the great successes of this phenomenal class and then, if you'd like, leave a good wish or bit of wisdom for them at the end.

Amongst the many accomplishments of this class;

* they set the school record of community service hours - 2,020 in a single summer
* they heleped teach English to over 100 different refugees from over a dozen different countries
* their high school placement scores are amongst the highest we have ever had
* four students will be receiveing high school scholarships based upon phenomenal test scores
* they won over 30 awards and over $5,000 at Regional and State science, engineering, technology and math fairs
* they had a member who won at the Broadcom National Science Fair and who attended the International Science and Engineering Fair
* they preformed brilliantly all season in Math Counts
* they had a numerous wins in Young Authors
* they won numerous sports championships
* they went further than ever seeking Governor's Cup / Quick Recall Championships
* They successfully supported their service mission at Calvary Cemetery (grief support for the parents of children who have passed away) for the entire year
* they helped our local refugees to create over $3,000 in sales at the Refugee Farmer's Market
* they made their voices heard and took public stands against prejudice, intolerance, anti-semtism and hatred of all kinds

Most of all, they explored and brought to life the call they received in Confirmation to become the hands and heart of Christ in their community. Their outreach to individuals who have been oppressed, marginalized and pushed beyond the boundaries of society's heart and caring was profoundly inspiring for it reflected their passionate belief that their work, the work of helping to heal their world, truly mattered. Their hearts were a refuge for all who were suffering. Stepping out of their comfort zones, with courage and faith, directly into the lives of people who were hurting became a hallmark of this class, as was their ability to allow themselves to be pulled into the hearts of those they served. The Class of 2020 leaves St. Francis understanding how it is that they might help to bring blessing into this world, and too, they know how to open their lives so that they may receive all the grace and blessing which God offers in return. At a Catholic school, there are not many lessons more important than this. The Class of 2020 has learned it in abundance.

We wish them the best as they prepare to say 'Goodbye' to SFA later this week. They have been tried in heart and spirit and we know they are strong and ready to face all the world has to set before them. Feel free to leave them a message here!
