Dear TFS Parents, Faculty and Staff,
I hope this week is going well for you and that you are all looking forward to a beautiful fall weekend.
I wanted to thank all of you for your continued support of The Franciscan School and our efforts to make this an amazing year for your students. This week our Home School Association (HSA) successfully kicked off the annual Franciscan Experience fundraiser with an amazing response and a fun event at Two Roosters ice cream! Please take a look at the fundraiser website for some great opportunities to have fun and provide funds for all the great things the HSA does for our school community.
A few updates on some projects, policies, and events coming up:
- *Speaking of the HSA, they generously provided funds from last year’s fundraiser for new cafeteria tables. These are finally coming in next week, and we look forward to having great new seating in Jacoba!
- *Our COVID protocols are working well! We have had very few cases, and the homeroom that quarantined last week is coming back today with a clean bill of health after meeting the testing requirements. We appreciate everyone’s adherence to our efforts to maintain a safe and healthy environment at TFS!
- *Next week we will be conducting our IOWA and CogAT assessment testing in grades 3rd-8th. Please see the Tidbits from this past Tuesday for some guidance on preparations and make sure your students are well-rested with their Chromebooks charged! To make sure they have some down time, there is no homework next week.
- *We will be holding the next Principal’s Forum, by Zoom, on October 14th at 6:00PM. “Zoom in” to ask your questions of Mr. Watson.
Thanks as always for your support and care of The Franciscan School.
Mike Watson, Principal
