Dear St. Francis School Families,
2017 Minion Madness Carnival
Thank you to everyone who helped to make our Carnival a great day for the children! I was truly amazed with all of the committee members and volunteers because it takes the cooperation of our entire school community in order to pull it off successfully! I am so grateful to everyone who helped make this day happen from our committee co-chairs, committee members, school staff, parents, students, and families, who worked during the carnival, area businesses, members of our parish, those who sold raffle tickets, and those who came to enjoy the day! May God bless each of you for the work you have done.
Anne Matzek ~ Home and School President
