The mission of St. Francis of Assisi School extra curricular programs is to provide all students an equal opportunity to learn and achieve the fundamental skills and develop the basics of an activity within the context of a quality program. Providing a foundation for future life skills, participants will also learn teamwork, responsibility, dedication and good sportsmanship. Co-curricular activities will be open to all students who desire to participate and meet the eligibility requirements, and all participants shall learn how to represent their school and community well and extend the mission of the Diocese of Des Moines and St. Francis Of Assisi School.



Lord, in the battle that goes on through life
I ask but a field that is fair
A chance that is equal with all in strife,
And courage to strive and to dare.
And if I should win, let it be by the code,
With my faith and honor held high;
And if I should lose,
let me stand by the road
And cheer as the winner goes by.
