Flat Francis

We have a unique opportunity with our Catholic Education to be very excited about Pope Francis visiting the United States in September!  How lucky are we that the Pope will be here?  In anticipation of the visit & to make our students aware of the importance of this opportunity, the Marketing Department at St. Mary Catholic School is introducing "Flat Francis", very similar to "Flat Stanley" that has been popular for years.  "Flat Francis" is the creation of the Catholic Extension office.  Your family can download your own Flat Francis by going to   Print your Flat Francis & send your photos to for use in promotional materials & an all school bulletin board.  Be creative!  Take Flat Francis with you to the pool, on vacation, to a baseball game, to dance lessons etc!
