Principal Welcome Message

​​​​Dear Student/Parent/Guardian,

Welcome back to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School! Mrs. Day (Vice Principal) and I look forward to joining you in another year of learning and growth. St. Francis of Assisi has established itself as an outstanding Catholic community of learners and we consider ourselves privileged to be a part of it. 

We would like to welcome new students and their families to our school. In a spirit of partnership and genuine respect, we share the responsibility and privilege of passing on the rich history of our Catholic faith and providing a quality education for our students. Together through the dedication, talents and collaboration of staff, parents and church, we will encourage students to grow, learn, and evangelize with hope, faith and love. I know that together we can continue to work with one another as we strive for "Excellence" in Catholic Education as we work together "Building a Community in God". I sincerely hope that we can continue to nurture and celebrate our gifts and talents, to support one another and to make every effort in God's name to make St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School an even better place in which to learn, play and grow.

The staff at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School is dedicated to providing every student with the best Catholic Education possible. We believe that we all need to work together to instill and develop an understanding of gospel values, pride in academic performance, socially accepted behaviour and effective organizational tools. We believe that this can be accomplished best with communication, consistency, adherence to high standards and working as partners in education.

On behalf of Mrs. Day and I, and the entire St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School staff, we would like to extend best wishes to all for a successful and fulfilling school year!

Yours in Catholic Education,

Chris Gencarelli​                              Laurie Day
