St. Francis School News

St. Francis kids line up to say Thanks for your help!

Our school year ended last Friday, June 14th . How the time flew by! One of our school’s goals is to provide service to others. Looking back over the year, here is a sample of some of what we did for others:

Each month our kindergartens and seventh graders make sandwiches for St. Martin de Porres shelter. Over 2,000 sandwiches were delivered this year.

Every Tuesday, four of our seventh and eighth graders and an adult chaperone served lunch at Capital Hill Lunch. Our students spent over 90 hours volunteering at Community Lunch this year.

We collected canned goods for St. Vincent de Paul each month.

Our seventh graders took part in the Call to Missionary Discipleship. They learned that there are many people living on the margins of our society. As part of this, both classes spent a day at St. Vincent de Paul food bank helping sort, package and hand out food and drinks to our neighbors. They also went on the Immigration Walk. The students said that they learned a great deal about caring for others and our Earth and seeing God in all people.

 

With the help of a $10,000 donation from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation at the request of one of our parents, we established a relationship with the new Mary’s Place location in Burien. All of our students created “welcome home” cards for families transitioning from homelessness to temporary housing at Mary’s Place. Our seventh and eighth graders visited the facilities and have been working on getting grants and raising money to purchase needed supplies for the Mary’s Place guests.

Our kindergartners straighten the books in the church each week. Our kindergarteners, first graders and second graders all made and brought gifts to residents of the Francisican.

We raised money to put a roof on and beds in the girls’ dormitory at our school in Ndavaya, Kenya.

And much, much more!

Thank you, parishioners, for your continued support of our school. Our mission of the parish exists because of you! Thank you for another wonderful year.

- Rosemary Leifer, Principal
