Attention Sophomore Parents:

By now, you have received information about "Intensive English and Math:  Preparing for the College Boards." Taught by Mr. Kolodziej, Mrs. Johnson, Ms Pratscher and Ms Lipskis, this summer course has, for 35 years, prepared St. Francis students for all sections of the SAT and ACT.

A reminder that if your son/daughter wishes to enroll in a specific time slot, you should submit your application by March 15.  And if you have any questions, please feel free to call Mr. Kolodziej here at St. Francis or on his cell; see the brochure for his phone number.
