Welcome to St. Francis Elementary School

Mission Statement

Our mission is to equip all students with the knowledge and skills to empower them to achieve their dreams and full potential while becoming responsible citizens in a dynamic world.

Open House Information

Due to current state guidance on social gatherings, we are unable to hold our previously scheduled Open House event at St. Francis Elementary School. This event will be virtual. 

While this is not the Open House any of us had hoped for, the health of our students, families and staff is paramount. We look forward to welcoming you virtually to the 2020-21 school year!
