COFFEE WITH THE PRINCIPAL

Mark your calendars and plan to join Principal LaCoursiere for coffee and conversation. This is a great time to discuss anything that is on your mind that is happening at our school or in the district. The dates are as follows:  December 4, February 5 and April 4. We will start at 7:30 a.m. and go until 9:30 a.m. 

SFMS PTO

St. Francis Middle School (SFMS) established a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to support students and staff. Objectives are achieved through monthly meetings that involve parents, school staff and community members. The success of this organization depends on parent involvement. If you would like to help plan activity nights, address the needs of the school and plan fundraisers, please join us for a meeting. Our meeting dates are as follows: November 13, December 11, January 8, February 12, March 12, April 9, May 14. Meetings are 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the SFMS Media Center.

 

THANKS SO MUCH!

On behalf of our PTO and SFMS staff, thank you so much to all who participated in making our first fundraiser such a success. The money raised goes directly to our students to offset the cost of field trips and other fun activities. We also want to thank all of those who provided home cooked, warm meals for our teachers during our fall conferences. We are so grateful for the support we receive from families in our community.
