At St. Francis School we realize the importance of nutrition and fitness for growing children. Our lunch and breakfast menus meet all federal nutrition guidelines, and then some. Students are offered a variety of fruits and vegetables and learn about the importance of healthy eating. Physical fitness opportunities are built into each day’s schedule.
