St. Francis School is the BEST!!!!
St. Francis is STAR Studded! There were so many celebrities and famous characters around on Wednesday during Catholic Schools Week that we thought we were in Hollywood!
We had a great time today checking out all the LEGO creations that were on display in our Library! Thanks to all the participants for sharing their creativity with us!

Our Dad’s Club is WONDERFUL! WE love the hot dog lunch you provided for our families! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Strega Nona came to visit the Library!
What a “TREAT” it was on Tuesday when Strega Nona came to our library to tell her story! The students were thrilled to hear her read and when she got her magic pot going they were surprised by the spaghetti that she cooked and shared with them!
All Saints’ Day 2014
Our students have been studying the saints quite extensively this year. Each student was encouraged to dress up as the saint their class is studying or as a saint of their preference. It was a wonderful day of celebration and prayer.
St. Francis Annual BBQ & Carnival
The St. Francis Annual BBQ and Carnival was another great success this year! We would like to especially thank all our wonderful parents and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication to making this event a great success and especially our BBQ Coordinator Maria Raymond for her outstanding efforts. All of the Yuma community enjoyed our world famous tri-tip dinners, carnival games, community entertainment, treats, pony rides, petting zoo, rock wall and games. Our Annual BBQ and Carnival continues to be a much anticipated and enjoyed Yuma tradition.
St. Francis Booster Club Super Hero Bowling Tournament
The St. Francis Booster Club hosted a Super Hero Bowling Tournament at Wild River Family Entertainment center to raise money for St. Francis sports program. The event featured the bowling tournament and costume contest. The many super heroes of St. Francis turned up for the event and we had a wonderful time for a good cause.
Flag Raising Ceremony
In honor of September 11, St. Francis Staff and Students performed a flag raising ceremony and honored a moment of silence for all those lives that have been lost since September 11, 2001.
St. Francis Science Club
St. Francis School Science Club had their first meeting with guest host Professor Robert Killin of AWC. We discussed the phases of matter and then did a demonstration with liquid nitrogen. It was an absolute blast and the students of St. Francis School thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Blessing of St. Francis Catholic School.
As we commence the 2014-2015 academic year, Father Emilio and St. Francis School staff and students came together to ask for God’s divine help in watching over and blessing our school. Father Emilio blessed every classroom, student, playground, computer lab, library, administrative office and parish hall (and every corner between here and there).
St. Francis staff getting ready for their students return.
The teachers and staff of St. Francis school have been very busy this summer! The whole school has been painted and cleaned, the new doors and video surveillance have been installed, and the staff has re-organized everything. Additionally, all our teachers are certified and all our staff are Red Cross trained. This is the kickoff to what we hope will be a very fantastic year for our students and staff at St. Francis School.
