To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dear Parents,

This meaningful quote was found on Sr. Dora Sartino’s memorial card. I am certain Sr. Dora selected this inspiring message herself. Sister laughed often, earning the respect of everyone she met and she most certainly left the world a better place than she found it, particularly here at SFA. The alumni parents and students who attended Sr. Dora’s funeral and Mass would certainly agree that they breathed easier because she lived and impacted their lives in an unforgettable way because you see, Sr. Dora was a saint, a living saint, whom we walked and talked with each day and she made St. Francis Academy a little piece of heaven. Sr. Dora lived a purpose filled life helping and inspiring so many. She will be sorely missed by those who loved her and remembered with admiration by all who knew her.

I would like to offer my most sincere gratitude to you, dear parents for your generosity to the Sisters, teachers, students, and me. The children’s parties were unforgettable and I am sure Santa needed another sleigh to deliver presents to SFA. Your true generosity and spirit shone brightly during the holy season of our Savior’s birth evidenced by the overwhelming success of our pajama collection, toy and food drive. The example you give to your children of concern for the poor and forgotten is truly holy. You are raising children of conscience and compassion and your lives will be blessed in so many ways for this example.

As we begin this new year of 2017 may God bless you and your family with good health, enjoyable work, strong faith, and deep love. May St. Francis Academy be a school where students love and respect one another, pray frequently and fully use the gifts God has bestowed upon them. Then our children will know the success of living a life that is holy.

Peace,

Deborah Savage
