Saint Francis High School is proud to be a Catholic, Holy Cross community of students, parents and educators. We understand that parents are the primary educators of their children, and we are pleased to partner with our parent community to affirm the school's mission and philosophy and to work together to ensure that all of our students reach their highest potential.
To support parents in their role as primary educators, the school works with the Men's and Women's Clubs to provide parenting information and tools. The program organizers seek speakers who address parents on topics reflective of the school’s annual BRIC themes (Bringing Hope, Respecting Ourselves and Others, Integrity of Heart and Mind, and Celebrating Family) while also providing parents with practical tips and tools to help our students navigate today’s challenging world. Holy Cross parent education events mirror the student programs, but the speakers also provide support in navigating the world of social media, dealing with teen issues and addressing the stress of the college application process.
Each year, the school coordinates with the parent clubs to bring two to three speakers to campus. Rarely do these speakers return for a second visit, so we have created a list of past speakers along with a brief profile and a link to their work as a resource for parents. Each speaker brings a unique expertise that reflects the school’s Holy Cross mission and philosophy.
