Sunday School is Starting Now Church Web Banner
Part of the San Juan Unified School District, Saint Francis has partnered up with Northridge Elementary School in order to help students reach higher achievements academically while getting the support they need. This means donating basic educational supplies to students, such as backpacks filled with pencils, markers, and notebook paper. 
Not only that, we support the Northridge elementary’s Dr. Ben Carson Reading Room, an initiative of the Carson Scholars Fund. The primary purpose of the program is to provide funding and support to local schools so that they can create a nurturing environment for children to feel safe and secure as they develop their reading skills. The Reading Project is dedicated to combating illiteracy and promoting leisure reading as a key to unlocking a child’s potential. Each room is filled with hundreds of books for students to explore from a variety of authors, topics, and genres. The Reading Room is decorated with attractive, eye-catching artwork based on Dr. Carson’s “THINK BIG” philosophy. The cozy environment encourages students and their families to come together to recognize the importance of reading.
