Topic: Happy Easter 

Dear TFS parents and faculty/staff:

Good evening, I hope that Holy Week is special for you this year! I am sure you are ready for Easter and a week’s break!

The Franciscan School community continues to be strong and united. I really appreciate the community we have built at the school as it is continually revealed as enduring and cohesive during these trying times. Parents are supportive, students are working hard, and the teachers remain committed to providing the best Distance Learning experience possible.  

We continue to keep lines of communication transparent and open between your home and the school. Our teachers and staff remain available to answer any questions you might have about their classes and are able assist anyway they can.  In an effort to continue to evaluate our curriculum delivery moving forward, we will be reaching out with weekly surveys. Keep an eye out for these surveys from your child’s teacher. 

We continue to provide academic materials and loaner ChromeBooks to students who request them. Please let a teacher, one of the assistant principals, or myself know if you need something from the school. We have staff available and we are able to provide assistance and scheduling for pickup of requested items. 

This week I hosted two principal forum sessions on April 7th. The forums were recorded and are available here for those who were unable to attend. Our COVID-19 news page is also available with updates and resource information as it becomes available.

As a reminder, there will be no classes beginning today through April 19th. Please use this time off as a richly deserved break. 

Finally, I leave you with this video from our faculty and staff who have a special message for all of our families. Rejoice that the Lord is risen, and join together (virtually, of course) to celebrate this Sunday with your extended Franciscan School family! 

Sincerely,

Michael Watson

Principal at The Franciscan School
