STFOA Newsletter

Our weekly newsletter is a wonderful resource to stay in the loop. The newsletter is emailed out to families on a weekly basis. 

Dear Families,


This is the first of two big weekends in a row!  This week is our musical, and next week is our auction- two very important events in the St. Francis of Assisi School’s year. 

Please join us tonight, Friday, February 21st, and/or tomorrow night, Saturday, February 22nd, at the Highline Performing Arts Center (PAC) at 7:00 PM for our school production of Mulan, Jr. The sets are on the stage, and the costumes fitted.  The concession stand has been stocked, and the volunteers have signed up. The raffle baskets are ready, and the programs have been printed.  Over sixty of our seventh and eighth graders have spent months practicing for this weekend’s performance, and they will be wonderful. 

All we need now is you, the audience.  If you have already purchased your tickets, great, and we will see you at the PAC.  If you haven’t yet bought your ticket, it’s not too late.  You can purchase your ticket at the theater box office.  Please come, enjoy the show and support our students!

Our auction is next weekend.  Everyone is invited to the silent auction next Friday- no ticket needed! If you are interested in going to the live auction on Saturday and have not yet purchased a ticket, today, Friday, February 22, 2019, is the last day.  We hope to see all of you at one or both nights. 

On a different note, I have confirmed with the Archdiocese and the Washington State Private Schools Office that we don’t need to make up our snow days.  Unlike public schools that have to go both 180 days AND over 1,000 hours, private schools just need to have 1,000 hours of instruction time in a school year.  We had over 1,120 hours of instruction time on our calendar, so even with our snow days we are well over the required number of hours.  That being written, I am keeping my fingers crossed that we have seen the last of the snow for this year.

I look forward to seeing our students performing to a full house today and tomorrow. Thank you for being a community that shows up. 


Peace and blessings,
Rosemary Leifer
