St. Francis of Assisi School wins
national honor for service program

St. Francis of Assisi School, 1938 Alfresco Place, has received a Catholic Schools for Tomorrow Award. This national award is sponsored by the Today’s Catholic Teacher magazine. St. Francis of Assisi School was one of twelve schools across the nation to be highlighted. The school was recognized in the category “Innovation in promoting Catholic identity” for their Summer Service Program, where students entering the eighth grade participate in service activities during the summer break. The awards announcement noted that “the Summer Service Program is founded upon the experience of community service in the context of Catholic social justice teachings.”
Three teachers from St. Francis of Assisi will attend the awards ceremony in Boston April 18 to accept the award.
