While I know myself as a creation of God. I am also obligated to realize and remember that everyone else, and everything else, are also God’s creation.

Please be advised that Wednesday, May 29, 2019 is the FINAL salad bar lunch for the school year.  We extend our appreciation to Ms. DaSilva and Ms. Melchionna for coordinating our salad day lunches, along with our additional staff members and student leaders who also offered their assistance.  Special thanks to our parent volunteers – Ms. Markotic, Ms. Lane, and Ms. Awad – for the generous donation of their time each week to help with our salad day lunches! We are looking forward to our program returning in the fall!

St. Francis of Assisi School proudly presents this year’s intermediate school play,  “Comic Book Artist”, on June 11 / 12, 2019.

Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz wants nothing more than to become a comic book artist.  When he gets a job as a janitor at Wonder Comics, he anxiously awaits the day that his boss, D.C.  Wunderman, will notice his drawings and discover his artistic genius.  It seems like that day will never come until Wunderman invests in a shipment of magical pens, guaranteed to bring to life any character his artists create.  When the staff artists unwittingly unleash the dreaded Doctor Shock Clock, it is up to Stanley to create his own team of superheroes.  Will they have the superpowers to conquer this dastardly super-villain, who can stop time with the snap of his fingers?  Only time will tell!

Show Times are at 1:30pm and 6:30pm.

There is no charge to attend our performances, but we kindly ask all audience members to consider bringing a non-perishable food item to the performance as a donation to the Georgetown Bread Basket.
