In the fall of 2015, the St. Francis Service Club, H.O.P.E (Help Other People Everyday) was formed. It consists of 5th through 8th graders and is lead by teacher and parent volunteers. The student who committed to H.O.P.E. not only live the school motto of “Here to serve, not to be served” during the school day, but they volunteer their time after school as well. There are monthly meetings that the club members attend to plan out the service activities in which they participate. The members joined by filling out an commitment form and attending meetings.
The inaugural year activities included decorating the school for Advent, hosting a babysitting night (to raise money for project MUSHROOM-a homeless outreach program), making gift bags for project MUSHROOM, making dinner at the Ronald McDonald House for the families, and making decorations for local nursing homes.
