Principal’s Message

Welcome to St. Francis Catholic School Website. The purpose of this website is to provide a means for our school community to access information about the many aspects of school life at St. Francis Catholic School. We hope you will find this website informative and useful throughout the year.

We are fully aware of the many things that make our school special. “From the fullness of his grace, we have received one blessing after another” (John 1:16 NIV). Our dedicated staff strives for excellence, as they guide our students, from JK/SK to Grade 8, to not only achieve the expectations as outlined in the Ontario Ministry documents, but to also guide them in their faith journey.

We have been blessed by the many gifts of our talented students. The St. Francis Spirit is apparent as our students participate in liturgical celebrations, and become involved in co-curricular activities. We are proud of their efforts as they work to achieve the expectations, and model the image of Jesus. Our students are offered many opportunities to grow as a Catholic school community through sports teams, library, leading our opening morning prayers. Our students demonstrate the call to service through their many acts of kindness, showing their genuine concern for others, as they donate to the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Our parents/guardians generously give of their time to our school community throughout the year. This is evident through their participation on School Council. They assist on class excursions, volunteer as classroom helpers, and are an integral part of our fundraisers. They make a positive difference in the lives of our students, our learning community.

St. Francis Catholic School is a dynamic place to be. As you peruse our website, we trust that you will see how dynamic it is. We have so much to be thankful for at St. Francis Catholic School…our staff, students, parents/guardians, parish team, and many volunteers.

We look forward to continual academic, spiritual and social growth, as we work together as a Catholic school community. Together, let’s CARE more than others think necessary. TRUST more than others think wise. SERVE more than others think practical. In doing so, with God’s blessings, our most precious gifts, our children, will grow to be the best they can be.
