Some Words from Principal Menke

Catholic Education plays an important role in today’s society.  Students form a deeper understanding of God as they develop a life-lasting relationship with Jesus Christ.  These Christian values are at the forefront of every teaching.  Our students also learn how the Holy Spirit will strengthen their ability to handle the issues they will face in the world today.  Our students are not afraid to let their faith show since we have been told many times how well our students are Christ-like.

Our dedicated teachers and staff are vital to the success of our school.  They create an atmosphere where moral guidance and discipline help students achieve the high standards.  Our students enjoy accomplishing the tasks that are put in front of them.  This is evident when I witness the smiles that are on the faces of our students.  We could not accomplish the excellence at St. Francis/Holy Ghost without you.  Our parents, grandparents, alumni, community, and all our supporters are greatly appreciated.  The gifts and treasures you provide our school family help our students grow spiritually and academically.  We could not carry out our mission without you and your support.  Together, we will continue educating God’s children in the Christian values which will enable the students of St. Francis/Holy Ghost School find success in the world today.
