Dear Parents, SUMMER 2015

I hope you are all enjoying the summer. We wish all the best for Mrs. Little on her retirement and Mrs. Padelt who have moved on from Saint Francis.
We continue to keep up with the demands of technology. This summer we have increased our internet bandwidths and replaced our wireless access points to further the needs of our children both in the computer lab and classrooms.
Remember our new uniform changes: Maroon or white, short or long sleeve polo shirts have replaced our blouses and dress shirts. ALL UNIFORMS MUST BE PURCHASED FROM FLYNN & O’HARA on this website or from their Allentown store.
Our web page “calendar” button already has many of the 2015-16 events to assist parents with regard to holidays, Lifetouch pictures, Brain Show, testing etc. Also, our Home & School has been busy planning numerous activities for this coming school year. I am constantly amazed at the dedication of our parents and staff who work so hard for our children and the future of our church.
Be sure to check this website and Saint Francis Academy “Facebook” for the latest information. We have also just started a St. Francis "instagram" for present students and alumni (look for some pictures and possible videos too). Also, “sign up” for our “newsflash” if you have not already done so to be emailed and receive a text message of the latest events.
The season goes by so quickly, before you know it, it’s back to school again. If you are like me, you can become so easily “stressed out” at organizing your time well. Ask our Lord and the Blessed Mother to help you plan family activities. They will. You will feel their graces and be able to relax and enjoy your family more knowing the Lord is with you (because you invited Him). So many of us get so wrapped up with various activities we forget to “talk to” Our Lord daily. What a difference it makes! Try it. Get in the habit of it. You will feel the difference. Trust Me.

God bless you all !!!

School Closings & Delays

How do you know if the school is closed or dismissing early due to snow or icy conditions???
Parents can do any of the following:
1) Go to the school’s website at www.sfabally.org 2) Turn to (Ch. 69 TV) WFMZ
***The best thing to do is register your cell phone and/or email on the “Newsflash” button of our school’s website. This will notify you immediately by text message and/or email of any school situations***

Please note: We do not follow the Boyertown School District for closings and delays. If you reside in another school district, you must be aware of St. Francis Academy’s closing or delay schedule. For example, do not send your child to school if your district is operating on a one hour delay and St. Francis has a two hour delay. The school will not be open for any children arriving earlier than what has been announced.
Special Pre-K Note: If there is a two hour delay, the morning Pre-k class will still take place beginning at 10:30 for those who choose to attend.
 

Have a Great Summer!!!
