Music at St. Francis School

Children's Choir

The goal of the Children’s Choir program is to teach children in grades 2 – 8 the language of music and artistic expression within the context of a Catholic community of faith, which includes active and regular participation in church liturgies.

Participants in the Children’s Choir program are actively involved in the spiritual and liturgical life of the church. They serve as ministers of music at selected liturgies throughout the year.

Adopt a Drum Program

Our music program impacts over one hundred students in the school and many more in our church music ensembles. We currently own three African drums and other percussion instruments that are used in drum ensembles. We would like to provide a world music drumming curriculum, which not only teaches students how to drum, but also teaches character development. This curriculum will be used in the St. Francis Middle School, plus some elementary classes and the middle and high school choirs.
