If you want your child to attend a school with high academic standards, spend their days in a loving and positive place, in a Christian environment where everyone knows and cares about them, then St. Francis School is where they need to be.
Hello, we are Steve and Cathy Holstein, and this is our third wonderful year as part of the St. Francis School family. I refer to us as a school family because the staff at St. Francis School makes everyone feel as if we are a family. The staff is caring, kind and thoughtful to every student that attends St. Francis School and to the families that choose St. Francis School for their child. These feelings resonate throughout the entire school building and bring warmth and love to all those who are a part of St. Francis School.
The St. Francis School staff is phenomenal. Father Pat provides deep spiritual guidance and cares for each child as if he or she was his own, Mrs. Sikora provides exceptional leadership and guidance, and a very friendly and helpful face greets you in the office, Mrs. Oxley. The teachers provide each child with a supportive, engaging, encouraging and safe learning environment. The support staff makes the school all come together by keeping the school clean, cooking delicious meals, and assisting in the education of the children. Children immediately have a sense of belonging when they first become a student at St. Francis School. St. Francis School staff always makes sure that the individual needs of each student are met.
St. Francis School does an excellent job with all aspects of education by providing religious studies, creative arts, physical movement opportunities, delicious and nutritious homemade meals, and a before and after school care program that gives parents/guardians the security of knowing that their child is being cared for by a competent and conscientious staff. The dedication and love for their students shined even more brightly when the transition to remote learning became a necessity. The teachers worked diligently and compassionately to ensure that instruction continued smoothly and consistent. They are prepared and ready to teach remotely if that time comes again. Crisis Care is a true blessing that many St. Francis families need and gives students who attend the feeling of still being at their school. Throughout this challenging time, all St. Francis School families know in their hearts that our children will continue to have the highest of educational experiences, instruction, and emotional reassurance that keeps our children thriving, successful and healthy.
