Dear Parents, Middle States Evaluation – During the week of Oct. 16-19, our school was visited by three educational professionals to determine our re-accreditation. On Wednesday, after the noon dismissal, the entire staff met with the team for the “Oral Report”. This is a preliminary report before the final written report is evaluated and sent to our school. The Middle States team described our school as “a little piece of heaven”. Their report was glowing! The chairwoman stated she had visited over 50 schools and has never been so complimentary in her reports and observations. She described the teacher and student interviews (from grades pre-k – 8th) as a consistent love for our school. She stated that SFA is truly a “family”. As I stated at the opening dinner, I am in complete “awe” of the dedication of all the teachers, staff, and volunteers at our school. I am afraid to thank the numerous parents who volunteered during those three days for fear of leaving someone out. Our Lord knows who you are. We all pay school taxes and sending your child to a Catholic school is a great sacrifice. Why are we paying extra money for education when we don’t have to? ………..Why are we doing this?Because in our school, we pray every day …Because in our school, we teach religion…Because in our school there is nothing more important than God and how we treat each other….Because our school is priceless and we want the best for our kids! God bless you and your families…Deacon Murphy Be sure to check our website www.sfabally.org and Saint Francis Academy “Facebook” for the latest information.
