Words can’t express how grateful we have been to the teachers at St. Francis. Their endless love and dedication to our children really shined through during such an emotionally exhausting time. Every Monday our daughter looked out the window so she could see her weekly packet getting delivered and get a warm smile from Mrs. Erin (as they both waved excitedly). Their Friday FaceTimes was something that our daughter looked forward to each week. Storytime was also one of our daughter's favorite things -not only did she get to see Mrs. Erin but all of her classmates who she missed so much. The bond between the children in the class and Mrs. Erin was evident through the smiles ear to ear from each child and the excitement in their voices when they were asked what they want to share with the class. I appreciated the values they continued to instill into our children as they discussed a book or talked about their week. As a parent, I am very happy to see my child excited to learn. I am thankful to them for the amount of support they have provided and for the smile they put on our daughters face daily. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to send our daughter to St. Francis!
