St. Francis parents take turn learning
School bells rang at St. Francis High School in La Cañada Flintridge on Sunday, Sept. 13, as parents became the students at the school’s annual “Back-to-School” day. The event began with a one-hour assembly in the gymnasium as parents were greeted by Fr. Tony Marti and Principal Tom Moran. Mother’s Guild, Booster Club and Alumni Council representatives were on hand to describe parental involvement opportunities.
After a brief state-of-the-school address and information session, parents followed their sons’ schedules and attended abbreviated classes where they met teachers and heard overviews of course demands and class expectations. A spread of home baked cookies and beverages hosted by the Mother’s Guild were served under the Friar’s Portico on the school courtyard and parents and faculty mingled between classes. The “school day” culminated in a family Mass held in the school chapel.
