It is that time of year again when Sister Mary Ann calls together the St. Francis faculty to begin planning and setting goals for the school year.
A unique challenge for Sister Mary Ann this year, is that she has to replace 5 classroom teachers, a music teacher and a Title 1 teacher. God blessed us with 5 educators and the Public School appoints the Title 1 teacher. We are still without a music teacher, but one of the Friars, Brother Patrick, has agreed to teach art. Do we feel blessed? YES! Yet there is one BUT. One of the 5 teachers hired has been in an accident and the search continues. This too is in God’s hands. Take a look at the joyful beginnings of our staff.
