  • AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER LUNCH ORDERS

    • This year we are asking that ALL families register with a Boonli/FSP account even if you are not ordering lunch at this time.

    • Registration and ordering for August lunches will begin on July 22 and will be lock out on August 4. If you don’t get your orders in by August 4 you will need to send a lunch with your students for all of August.

  • UNIFORM EXCHANGE

    • The Uniform Exchange will continue on at each campus from 9am-1pm on Monday through Thursday over the next couple of weeks, beginning July 8.

    • If you have uniforms you’d like to donate, please deliver them washed and folded to your campus office.

    • PLEASE SEE THIS FLYER FOR COMPLETE INFORMATION


      Uniforms are required for Kindergarten through 8th grade students. Dennis Uniforms is our uniform provider. It is wise to first go into the store on Higgins just east of Harlem to have your student try on the individual uniform pieces. You can then either wait and first check the Uniform Exchange to find a few good hand-me-downs, or go ahead and purchase pieces from Dennis Uniforms. Or, you can do a combination of both. You can also order online: dennisuniform.com.


  • SUMMER VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

    You can get a jump start on your 2019-20 school year volunteer hours, have some fun, meet some other parents, and get an awesome limited edition "summer marketing" volunteer t-shirt by helping Mrs. Thyen with summer marketing efforts!  

    These opportunities do NOT require Virtus Training. HOWEVER, if you want to get your Virtus training out of the way so you can do the fun field trip chaperoning or holiday party helper volunteer jobs when school starts, there are some sessions this summer which are PRETTY CLOSE BY. Please click the Virtus link below. There are always training sessions being added. You can train at any location but you must pre-register.

  • SCHOOL TOOL BOX - ORDER YOUR SUPPLIES FOR NEXT YEAR

    Make life easy and order your school supplies online through School Tool Box.  Online sales are now open.  Orders submitted at this point will be shipped to your home.  A separate link is provided for each campus. If you prefer to shop on your own, you can find your respective lists HERE.

  • WOLVES DANCE CAMP

    Summer dance camp for students ages 4 - 12 years old will be offered at the North Campus between August 5th - 8th.

  • FLAT FRANCIS 

    If you were here the summer we transitioned to Pope Francis Global Academy, you may remember we participated in the Catholic Extension's celebration of the visit of Pope Francis to America.  We loved that project so, as a Pope Francis namesake school, we're doing it again just for fun! Wherever you travel this summer, please take Pope Francis with you and snap a photo of your kids holding Flat Francis and wearing their Pope Francis Global Academy gear. Post your photos on the Parents' Club Facebook page or email them to jthyen@pfgacademy.org, and they may be chosen to go on our public facebook or twitter posts! Small prizes will be given to students who participate!
