SCHOOL NEWS

COFFEE WITH THE PRINCIPAL

Mark your calendars and plan to join Principal LaCoursiere for coffee and conversation. This is a great time to discuss anything that is on your mind that is happening at our school or in the district. The dates are as follows:  December 4, February 5 and April 4. We will start at 7:30 a.m. and go until 9:30 a.m. 

SFMS PTO

St. Francis Middle School (SFMS) established a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to support students and staff. Objectives are achieved through monthly meetings that involve parents, school staff and community members. The success of this organization depends on parent involvement. If you would like to help plan activity nights, address the needs of the school and plan fundraisers, please join us for a meeting. Our meeting dates are as follows: October 9, November 13, December 11, January 8, February 12, March 12, April 9, May 14. Meetings are 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the SFMS Media Center.

 

CONFERENCES

We will be having parent/teacher conferences on October 11 and 16. Teachers will be available 3:00-7:00 pm. Our conferences are on a first come basis. There is no need to schedule a time slot, families just need to visit the teacher they chose to. We are asking families to please limit the time spent with each teacher to 7 minutes. If you need more time than that, please feel free to set up a meeting with that individual teacher. MCA reports will also be available for families to pick up as well. We look forward to seeing you there.
