SFDS Week of May 29th 2018

Dear Families,

 

And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier’s tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.

— Joseph Rodman Drake, To the Defenders of New Orleans

 

Memorial Day has come to signify the start of summer for many Americans and is often celebrated with cookouts, family get-togethers, road races and concerts. But the real meaning of Memorial Day has, for too many Americans, gotten lost in holiday hoopla. Memorial Day was created as an occasion to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom. It is our opportunity to stop and give thanks for the many who have died protecting that freedom. Let us this weekend keep all those who have died for this country in our prayers.

Memorial Day Parade: Please join us this Monday May 28th and join the Academy community and our Mascot Franny to march in the Memorial Day Parade. St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy will be marching in the parade at 11:30am in the morning following the Memorial Day Mass at 10:30am. The parade starts right here on 129th street.  We would love to see everyone come out for this special event. All students are encouraged to wear their uniform on this day. We will be marching until 120th street.

 

Class of 2019 Ring/Pin Service: The Class of 2019 (7th graders) will receive their class rings and pins in St. Francis de Sales Church on Tuesday 5/29 at 7pm. A small reception will follow in the Small Hall. All 7th graders are asked to report to the Small Hall at 6:30pm.  

 

Chicken Finger Day: This coming Tuesday May 29th is our last Chicken Finger special lunch day of the year. If your child is scheduled to receive chicken fingers, they do not need a full lunch brought from home that day! Thanks again to Mrs. Spaeth for coordinating these days.

 

Art Show: Please join us on Wednesday May 30th at 6pm for our 2nd annual Art Show! Ms. Mangano and our students have worked tirelessly in preparation for a truly superb art gallery display. We hope to see many of you there. To get a sneak peak of some of our students artwork please click here to see our digital art gallery.

 

Tuition Rates for 2018-2019 School Year: As officially stated at our annual State of the Academy meeting on May 1, our updated tuition and fee rates–as well as the schedule of due dates–is accessible on our school website, and will also be sent home in letter form to each family. Please refer to our Tuition and Financial Aid page on our school website by clicking here.

 

Paperwork: If any child is transferring from St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy for the 2018-2019 school year, most likely their records will need to be sent to their new school. Please request that as soon as possible as many schools are closed for the summer and ask for that information before the end of June.

 

Confirmation for Blessed Trinity: Save the date! Thursday December 6th will be the Sacrament of Confirmation for students being confirmed at Blessed Trinity. We are looking forward to celebrating this special day!

 

Brooklyn Cyclone Night: Did you miss your chance to join us for our annual SFDS night at MCU Park to cheer on the Brooklyn Cyclones? There is another chance on June 25th! It’s Catholic Schools Night at MCU Park with the Brooklyn Cyclones! Tickets are $10. Join us as we celebrate our school’s valedictorian with Bishop Raymond Chappetto!

**Plus don’t miss the exciting pregame: Collars vs. Scholars. Mr. Scharbach along with other Catholic School Principals will be facing off against Father Sean Suckiel and other Diocesan priests in a pregame softball game.

Watch the principals take the mound to try and defeat the priests!

2018-2019 Tuition Rates

Dear Families,

2018-2019 Tuition and Fees

The registration process for the 2018/2019 school year of Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Academy is well under way. We welcome our returning families and look forward to welcoming many new families to our Saint Francis de Sales community. The administration, faculty, staff, Board of Directors and I are committed to provide the best Catholic education for all of our students.  Evidence of this commitment is demonstrated by: 

 

  • An average 23:1 student to teacher ratio
  • Every student in grades 5-8 receives a Google Chromebook to use both in school and at home.
  • iPads for Kindergarten through Grade 4
  • Terranova and State test scores at or above City, State, and Diocesan levels
  • 100% of eighth grade students being accepted to their choice of Catholic high schools
  • Full Time Art Program within the school day.
  • An Early Childhood wing dedicated to the needs of our youngest students
  • A leading program for students with special needs including a Creative Learning Center staffed by a full time special education/literacy teacher, in addition to the special education services supplied by the NYC Department of Education
  • An environment focused on celebrating and living Catholic values and morals, supported by the priests and staff of St. Francis de Sales and Blessed Trinity Parishes, as well as sacrament instructional preparation, and service projects provided by our faculty
  • Full time Security Guard(s)
  • A technology enabled environment, including a fully equipped computer lab, SMART Boards and computers in every classroom, including the Early Childhood wing, laptops for all teachers to work on technology integrated lessons
  • An interactive website and Mobile App that will help families stay connected and engaged
  • A high school level Integrated Algebra and Earth Science program for selected 8th graders

 

We recognize that our work is never done. There are plans to further enhance our programs through your child’s years here at St. Francis de Sales. Please take a look at our 2017-2020 Strategic Plan on our school website for more information.

 

For the past several months, through collaborative efforts between the finance committee, administration, and the board of directors, tuition and fees for our next school year have been discussed and researched at great length. While we recognize any increase in tuition will impact our school families, such increases are necessary to maintain the quality of our academic programs, our teachers, and to ensure our long-term viability.

 

When determining tuition, we try to keep a balance between affordability for our families and the strategic needs of the school. After careful review of all considerations, the tuition for the 2018-2019 school year has been set.

 

In order to maintain the quality of our program and achieve our goals in a financially responsible manner, The Board of Directors has decided it is necessary to implement modest increases in tuition for the 2018/2019 school year. Please see attached for more information on tuition rates for 2018-2019. The Directors recognize that these are difficult economic times, and recognize the sacrifices families make to provide a Catholic education. As a result, we wish to provide an education that is both affordable and meets the standards of excellence that the students deserve.

 

It currently costs in excess of $9,100 to educate each child that attends Saint Francis thus all children receive an excellent education at a discounted rate. Our fundraising efforts directly impact our tuition, which is why we waited to finalize the tuition rate until after the Card Party and Golf Outing. In order to keep tuition increases to a minimum, we need to work together to find new ideas for mid to large sized fundraisers. Our fund-raising activities are a key component of our ability to provide a Catholic education at an affordable price. It is imperative that all families continue to support our fund-raising efforts through active participation in their execution and their attendance at as many events as possible. I invite you to attend a fundraising meeting on Wednesday June 13th at 6pm to discuss new or reinvented fundraising ideas. If you can’t attend, but have an idea please email us at admin@stfrancisschoolbh.net

 

The Directors, Principal and Staff of Saint Francis welcome the opportunity to educate your children. We believe strongly in the benefits of a Catholic education, but recognize that you have a choice regarding where to send your child. We thank you for choosing Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Academy. If you have friends, neighbors or colleagues with young children, we encourage you to share the gift of our school community with them as well. Supporting future enrollment is one of the most important ways of ensuring an active, vibrant future for St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy.

 

As always, thank you for everything you do for the school. St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy is a great community as a result of all of the individual efforts and talents that each of you brings to the school each and every day.

 

Sincerely in Christ,

Christopher Scharbach

SFDS Week of May 7th 2018

Dear Families,

 

In the Catholic faith, the month of May is traditionally dedicated to Mary, our Blessed Mother.  There are many ways to celebrate this particular devotion.

Now onto some exciting things happening in the upcoming week of May 7th:

A special thank you to their teachers Mrs. Stathis, Mrs. Watters and Mrs. O’Malley for preparing them for this special moment.  They will be joined by the rest of their classmates next weekend who will receive their communion on Saturday 5/12.
