People for Others
Every day, the St. Francis community strives to live and act as people for others. From the classroom to chapel, at home and out in the world, we nurture a mindset of compassion and grace—so our words and actions contribute to the greater good. Because we believe that good works are a natural extension of faith, we provide opportunities for students at every grade level to serve our school as well as local and global communities.
To uphold the tenet put forth in the Prayer of St. Francis that “it is in giving that we receive,” St. Francis students and families have united regularly each school year to give to worthy causes during designated on-campus collections days. These school-wide events promote a sense of community and foster joy in helping others in need.
Grade-level and division service projects form the backbone of our St. Francis community outreach efforts. From Primary students doing chores around the house to collect coins for the Eye Care for Kids Foundation to Lower School students writing Valentine cards to members of the U.S. military to our Middle and Upper School students volunteering at local food banks, projects span time spent at home, on campus, and around town.
