A souvenir booklet is being planned for this momentous occasion. If you would like to be part of this treasure (by placing an ad or a sponsorship), please call the school office for more details 610-845-7364.

How Do I Know If The School Is Closed Or Dismisses Early????
Parents are asked to choose any of the following methods for the most up-to-date information: *Option 1 will directly notify you by text, email and/or voice message*
1) Log on as a Parent to the OptionC.com website (this site is ONLY for checking your child’s grades). Our school code = 3008
Your Parent login and password was sent home to you in small white envelope. If you misplaced it, please call Mrs. Stull for your login 610-845-7364
a) Click the “Office” tab and choose contact information b) Update and Save your information c) Click on the Communication tab and choose Manage Alerts.
Here, you will choose how you wish to be notified about school closings, delays, general announcements etc. Pick your preference from Text, Email or voice. You can choose one or all three if you wish.
2) Go to WFMZ, Channel 69 or on the web at www.wfmz.com To hear school closing and delay information
3) Go to our Saint Francis Academy Facebook page
If you reside in another school district, you must be aware of St. Francis Academy’s closing or delay schedule. For example, do not send your child to school if your district is operating on a one-hour delay and St. Francis has a two-hour delay. The school will not be open for any children arriving earlier than what has been announced as the school's official starting time.
Special Pre-K Note: If there is a two hour delay, the Pre-K will still meet for anyone who chooses to attend.
The end of the school year is rapidly coming to a close. Unbelievable. I have just received a certificate from the Diocesan Office.

Our 275th anniversary activities continue with Alumni Recess on Saturday, June 2nd after the 4:30 Mass. Please bring a covered dish and/or dessert. RSVP to the school office 610-845-7364. Please check the monthly news, Facebook and this website for any changes or events ....God bless you and your families.
Our Duty and Privilege
Sunday Mass? Why is it so Important?
Since the Last Supper, Jesus instructed His apostles to “Do this in remembrance of Me”. The third commandment tells us to keep holy the Lord’s Day. The Mass is an intimate encounter with our risen Lord. In one of our Lady’s apparitions she stated that if we knew the graces that we receive from attending Holy Mass, “we would weep for joy”! How can we better understand the weekly readings?
Please click on the link above for an explanation for all age groups! Then click on the “Sunday Connection” button on the left for the Sunday Readings and explanations.
