From the Office of the Assistant Principal of Academics

The third quarter of the school year ends on March 8th.  Although quarter grades are not an official grading period, they are a valid indicator of the progress that students are making in their current classes.  Report cards are not mailed home at the quarter.  You will receive instructions on how to view your student’s third quarter report card and create an “electronic signature” to verify that you have viewed the report card on RenWeb.  

Please continue to check student grades on RenWeb and contact teachers with any questions or concerns.  Third quarter grades can not be changed after the closing of the quarter, so it is very important that students are checking these grades for accuracy.  Quarter grades are used to determine academic probation and sports eligibility.


I’m happy to report that two of our new academic offerings for 2016-2017 have been granted University of California approval!  Project Lead the Way - Human Body Systems and Concert Band are both UC/CSU approved.  These additions to our curriculum not only improve student learning at St. Francis, but also improve our students’ opportunities to be accepted at some of the best colleges and universities in the state!  Our third new offering for 2016-2017, AP Government and Politics, will be submitted for University of California approval after the Advanced Placement submission cycle opens at the beginning of this month.


We are proud to announce that 89 students will be honored at the Breakfast of Champions on Wednesday, March 9th!  Students that have earned a grade point average equal to or greater than 3.0 for the Fall semester and participated in a varsity sport during the current Fall or Winter athletic seasons, or in the prior academic year Spring athletic season, qualify for this honor.  These students will be served breakfast by the Administration and receive an award for their excellence as student athletes.

Thank you for your continued commitment to fostering student learning. If you have any questions regarding these matters or any academic issues, please feel free to contact me at or (831) 724-5933 x203.
