Parent Association

Mission

The mission of the Parent Association at St. Francis School is to be the collective parental voice of the school, to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all parents, and to work collectively with the Board of Trustees and school administration in meeting the immediate needs of the school. The PA acts as the school’s biggest cheerleader and an ambassador to all SFS parents. This is accomplished through monthly meetings and forums at both the Goshen and Downtown campuses, parent gatherings, and fundraisers. Every SFS parent is a member of the St. Francis School PA.

The Parent Association (PA) supports the school through activities, events, and fundraising. Every member of the parent body is a member of the PA. The PA requests that each family pay annual dues of $50/family to support the PA’s activities.

Downtown Campus PA (High School)

Dianne Siciliano, PA President, Downtown Campus

As the parent of a senior, I am thrilled to be the PA President for the Downtown Campus this year. At St. Francis, every parent is a member of the Parent Association. Our primary goal is to support the mission of the school by 1) providing volunteers for various activities, 2) facilitating communication between school and families, and 3) raising funds to help provide “out of budget” school needs.

We won’t ask you to sell cookie dough, wrapping paper or potted plants to raise funds. We will ask that you participate in “painless fundraising” by designating St. Francis School as the beneficiary with your Kroger card or ValuMarket card. We will also ask you to pay annual dues to the PA, which is much easier than selling wrapping paper! The suggested dues amount is $50 per family, which covers any children on both campuses.

There are many ways to get involved with the St. Francis PA and we would love to have you join us! If you have any questions or ideas please feel free to contact me at DowntownPA@StFrancisSchool.org.

Goshen Campus PA (Preschool – 8th Grade)

Allison King, PA President, Goshen Campus

My name is Allison King, and I am excited to be working with Bridget Morgan, Stacy Plotts, and Laura Burke this year as your Goshen Campus PA team. My daughter, Elizabeth, is in the 7th grade. We have been a part of the SFS family since we transferred here in the 3rd grade. We love all that St. Francis has to offer, including an active and involved Parent Association.

While this year’s PA will look (and function) much differently than years past, our main goal of being a support and voice for the parents of St. Francis stays the same. Most of our communication will be via email, through the Portal, or by bi-monthly virtual meetings. Every meeting is open to all members of the St. Francis community and I hope to see you there.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me at GoshenPA@StFrancisSchool.org.

There are many ways you can help support our school. We can always use volunteers, but there are also ways you can easily help us raise money so we can give grants at the end of the school year. From registering your Kroger card to shopping at Amazon to paying your dues, every dollar goes back to the school we love.
