Georgjean Huegler, St. Francis School PTO president, is pictured here with Kenn Starr of Starr Hill Vineyard & Winery, who is presenting her with a check for $1,055.
The funds will be used for bus trips for the children along with other activities. The main goal of St. Francis School, located in the Diocese of Erie, is to instill strong Christian values by instruction, word and action. Its faculty strives to build a moral foundation through classroom settings, teachers and community involvement. The children are helped with relating to others in a Christ-like manner by accepting individual differences.
Along with the religious objectives, the students are prepared for future academic endeavors. At St. Francis, a strong emphasis is placed on academic content while at the same time encouraging students to be independent thinkers and problem solvers. The faculty works to establish an atmosphere that provides knowledge, moral balance and a good physical health.
