Newsletter for Alumni and Friends of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Schools, Humphrey, Nebraska
Construction on the St. Francis Church and School grounds continues. The latest project to renovating the parish hall.
Work began in early January cleaning out the kitchen and removing tables and chairs. It wasn’t long before the floors were
removed and sand was being moved in. During the renovation process, it was decided that the heating system wasn’t very
efficient so at this time, the boiler room received a makeover and a new heating system was installed. We thank the many
workers and volunteers that have put in numerous hours to see that this project is complete by graduation. The hall is
looking spectacular! See pages five through eight in this issue for more pictures.
From the President…
This issue of the Spirit of St. Francis is aptly titled, “Work in Progress.”
As you can see from the many photos, our parish hall is nearing completion and promises
to be a wonderful addition to our parish facility. As with any large project, many people
were involved. From those who planned the project, to those who helped paint, remove
the old boiler, and to those who faithfully brought coffee and food to feed our tired
laborers every day, we are grateful. A special thank you, as well, to all those who
contributed financially to this project! As soon as this project is finished, we will turn
our energies toward the renovation of the school kitchen to bring it up to code. The cost for this is expected to
be about $150,000 and we already have $25,741.86 in hand. If you would like to contribute, please be sure to
mark your donation check, “kitchen.” No amount is too small!
In addition to the many works in progress to improve our physical plant and facilities, we are reminded that
the mission of our school to form disciples after the mind and heart of Christ is also a work that is always in
progress. We are very proud of all of our students and their accomplishments this academic year, and in a
special way our thoughts are with our graduating seniors. I ask you to keep them in prayer as they prepare to
continue their education and continue to discern God’s plan for their lives. I have every confidence that the
education they received at St. Francis will serve them well and I am certain that they are academically and
spiritually prepared to face the challenges they will meet as they strive to build God’s kingdom. One of the
first things I remember about my visit to St. Francis School as Fr. Tom was taking me around was a sign on
our kindergarten door that reads: This room is a magic place. We are making Tomorrow!
And finally, during this season of Lent we are reminded that we are all works in progress. I hope that this
wonderful Lenten season has deepened your commitment to walk in the ways of the Lord and I pray that your
works of prayer, fasting and almsgiving have bought you to a greater understanding of God’s great love for
each of you. May God continue to bless you and your loved ones during the days ahead and I look forward to
seeing you at the alumni banquet on May 28!
From the Principal…
It is hard to believe this school year is coming to a close soon. We are buzzing with
activities from spelling bees to field trips, and track meets to golf tournaments. The
quality of performance inside and out of the classroom continues to be first-class.
The St. Francis Speech Team has been recognized as the D1 State Champions this
St. Francis takes pride in its rigorous curriculum and academic and sports programs.
We are taking the opportunity to push ourselves to even higher standards by seeking
AdvancED accreditation. With this, we concentrate on student data and formulate goals to increase our
student performance. In the end, we will not only be a Nebraska accredited school, we will be nationally
accredited. It is exciting to be in a place that pushes the standards from good to great.
St. Francis will be a recipient of a grant this year at the Nebraska Educational Technology Association
(NETA) Conference. We will receive nearly $5,000 to use towards a Graphic Arts program. Two Mac
Desktop computers, two licenses for Adobe CSI Standard, and two Wacom tablets will be purchased with
the grant funds.
A heartfelt thanks goes out to all the Alumni and stakeholders of St. Francis for your continued prayers
and immeasurable support. St. Francis is alive and well because of your dedication to our outstanding

Conference Quiz Bowl
On Tuesday, March 22, the St. Francis Quiz Bowl team of Derek Pfeifer, Ethan Krings,
Blake Krings, Caleb Noonan, and Caden Zach traveled to Howells for the Cornhusker Con-
ference tournament and finished with the runner-up spot. The tournament consisted of all
nine teams in the conference and was double elimination. The Flyers took on Howells in
the first round and won the match 8-5. St. Francis then went on to beat Fullerton in a big
7-1 win to earn a spot in the semifinals. In the semifinals, the Flyers took on the Panthers from Leigh. The match was much
closer for the Flyers who won the match by only a point, outscoring the Panthers 4-3 and advanced to the finals. Lindsay
Holy Family worked its way up through the losers’ bracket after losing in the first round to make it a rematch of last year’s
championship. St. Francis needed only one win to claim their second straight championship while the Bulldogs needed two
wins to get the title. The Bulldogs easily won the first match 9-2 to send the Championship into a tie-breaker. The second
round was much closer, but Holy Family went away with a 7-5 win to capture the Championship.
