The Head of School announced her intention to move on to other pursuits in August of last year with this statement: “I have been truly blessed to be part of a school with a rich heritage of academic excellence, totally committed to the values of the Holy Child educational philosophy.”

Sr. Francine will be assuming a leadership role in the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.
