7th Annual Grandparents and Grandfriends Day is on October 11th, 2019

It is our pleasure to announce the seventh annual “Grandparents and Grandfriends Day” at St. Francis of Assisi School on Friday, October 11, 2019. Please encourage all grandparents or any “special friend” to join the student(s) for part of the morning.

  1. Schedule:

Click here to get a copy of the schedule of events. We will start at 9:00 AM and end at 11:45 AM.

At the prayer service for grades 3, 4, and 5, a special intention and blessing will be made for those grandparents and grandfriends who are attending, and a special prayer will be said for those souls who are with our Lord in heaven. The parish hall will be open from 8:30 – 11:30 AM for our visitors to socialize when not visiting with their students.

  1. Grandparent or Grandfriend unable to attend? Request a special letter/ Buddy up

If a grandparent or grandfriend is unable to attend the event, please ask him/her to write a special letter to the student. We would ask that the letter be sent to school before October 7. During the day of October 11, the student’s teacher will give the letter to the child. In addition, the teachers will make sure that any student(s) without a visitor will be paired up for the morning by another student and their guest. This worked very well last year and allowed all to participate in the activities. We also have a list of Sunsational Seniors who would love to be a special guest for the day and join your child. Please contact Kathleen Craven, SunnySeniors@saintfrancischurch.org to match your child to a Sunsational Senior.
