Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School!
My name is Alicia Brown and I am honored to have been selected as the new Principal of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School. This year marks my 25th year of service to SFA. Over the years, I have been a classroom teacher, the Director of Student Affairs and an Assistant Principal. But above all, I value my role as a child advocate. I believe children learn best when they feel safe, and know they are loved. Our mission is to educate the whole child, helping them to discover their God-given gifts and talents while preparing them for high school and life in the 21st Century.
Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together in partnership with the administrative team, teachers, staff and priests of St. Francis Parish. As parents, you are your child's first teacher. As educators, we are tasked with helping students grow in knowledge. But, as Catholic school educators, our mission is to help children grow in their relationship with Our Lord: to learn to love the Lord their God with all their hearts and to love one another as Jesus loves us.
All of us at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School are eager and excited to begin the new school year. This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are challenging, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - teachers, students, and parents - are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.
I invite you to visit our school and see for yourself all that St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School has to offer your child.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Alicia Brown
