Mrs. Brown has served St. Francis School for almost twenty-five years in myriad roles as a teacher, Director of Students and most recently as Assistant Principal. We ask that Christ bless Mrs. Brown and guide her in this new position as she works to build on the strengths of our past and set forth a vision to ensure that St. Francis of Assisi School is grounded in the heart of Christ and in the mind of the Church.
