St. Francis Reading Camp will return this summer July 24-28. We will continue the outreach program begun by Dottie Kilpatrick with a few changes. The St. Francis Reading Enrichment Camp will now be only in the morning and will include children entering third through fifth grades with various reading levels; not just struggling readers. 

The goal is to show kids that reading is fun.

The theme for the week is the book

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. 

If you want to be part of a fun and rewarding week, join us Saturday, May 6, at 9:00 am at the church to plan the first St. Francis Reading Camp for Kids. Whether you have volunteered in the past or not, we need your help as we share ideas for activities. If you are unable to attend the meeting but think you can volunteer the week of the camp (July 24-28), please let me know or reach me at

Everyone is welcome and no Golden Ticket required!

Join us Sunday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for an "End of the School Year" party at St. Francis. Bring your bathing suit and a change of clothes so we can kick off the summer right. We will be making moon sand as well as other fun projects and burning off as much energy as we can outside. Please RSVP to Angie Dufort 352-514-3168 via text, phone call or email no later than May 14 so I can prepare for the amount of project materials needed. Looking forward to a fun, messy morning!
