SFDS Week of June 19th

Dear Families,


What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who wants to catch you before you fall but instead picks you up,brushes you off, and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who wants to keep you from making mistakes but instead lets you find your own way, even though his heart breaks in silence when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules, shines with pride when you succeed, and has faith in you even when you fail…

Happy Fathers Day to all the Fathers, Grandfathers, Godfathers, Uncles, and special men in all of our academy family. Just a reminder that this Sunday at 9am St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy will be having their annual Fathers Day Mass on the beach. Hope to see many families there.


The long awaited last day of school is fast approaching! The 2016-2017 school year is drawing to a close, and from all indications, it has been a very productive one. Thank you for placing your faith in Saint Francis and for entrusting your children, your prized treasures, to our care. On behalf of the entire school community, we wish you a very happy, healthy and safe, fun-filled summer vacation. The school offices will be open on various days over the summer, please refer to the calendar on the website for hours.

Congrats to the Class of 2017 who graduate from St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy tonight. We wish them all the best as they move into the next chapter of their lives.
