Dear Parents of St. Francis of Assisi School and PSR Students:
The TOTUS TUUS Program will return to St. Francis of Assisi this summer on July 10th through July 14th, 2017. This is the twenty-fourth year we have been able to present this program to the children of St. Francis of Assisi. The program is 5 days in length and is offered to those students in Grades 1 through 6 for the 2017-2018 school year (students completing kindergarten through 5th grade).
This year’s curriculum is “2017: The Mystery of Salvation and the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.”
The Program begins at 8:30 a.m. each day and concludes at 2:30 p.m. Mass will be at 9:00 a.m. and daily confessions will follow after Mass. The school facilities are available for the Totus Tuus Program only; therefore no latchkey childcare follows the program. Please make arrangements to pick up your child(ren) promptly at 2:30 p.m.
Each student needs to bring a sack lunch daily. St. Francis will provide the drinks throughout the day. To assist with the snack time, each student is asked to bring one package of store-bought cookies or a box of snack crackers on the first day of the program
*We will be having one special lunch for ALL the grades on Wednesday, July 12th, 2017; at 11:20 a.m.; in Cana Hall. As families might have children in multiple grades, this makes it easier to attend with all of the children. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the teachers that are working with your child/children during this week.
On Friday, the last day of the program, the teachers have special activities planned for the students that always prove to be fun and exciting.
Pre-registration is encouraged, as class sizes are limited. As the date of Totus Tuus approaches, students from other area parishes will also be invited to attend as space is available. Watch for further updates in the church bulletin and The Vernacular. The cost of the day program is $15.00 per student. Should this fee create a financial burden for your family, please let us know so that arrangements can be made. This fee is used to help cover the cost of the Totus Tuus team as well as the materials used during the week. To pre-register your child, complete the attached registration and waiver forms and return them with the registration fee to the church office (the office will also have a supply of extra registration forms, if needed).
If you have questions, or would like to volunteer to assist with the program, please contact Maria Stewart at 218-8000. We are looking forward to seeing your child(ren) at Totus Tuus this summer.
*If there is a child in your neighborhood or someone you know who is not attending a Catholic school or church, please prayerfully consider printing off an extra registration form for their family and invite their children to Totus Tuus. It could be a wonderful way to open the door to evangelization.
