School Notes

  • Dragon Boat Race team members needed! For the second straight year, a St. Francis School Dragon Boat team will vie for a prize on Saturday, September 12th at Waterfront Park. We need 20 paddlers, a drummer, and up to four alternates for our team to take to the water. We have filled seven slots so far, and we hope that more students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of St Francis will participate in this really fun event! Our boat, the River City Wyverns, did well last year.
    Team members must be 12 or older. Anyone under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. All registration fees are paid for. Please let Team Manager Bob Jones know as soon as possible if you are interested in participating. Our first team practice is Wednesday, Sept. 2nd at 5:30 p.m. Individuals can sign up for other practice days and times through the organizer’s website
    The Dragon Boat Festival at Waterfront Park will also be the venue of much Asian cultural activity, with plenty of hands-on stuff to do, food trucks, and booths from the Confucius Institutes at UK and WKU, Crane House and other organizations. Even if you can’t be on the team, come to Waterfront Park on Sept. 12th to cheer on the River City Wyverns!
