Letter from Principal Schmitt regarding School Leadership for 2021-2022

Dear St. Francis de Sales parish and school community,

Serving St. Francis de Sales as school principal the last four years has been a wonderful honor and privilege for me and an incredible blessing for the Schmitt family. Today I write to inform you that I will be assuming the role of President at Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga in the Diocese of Knoxville TN beginning July 1, 2021. While the Schmitt family is very sad to be leaving this wonderful community, we look forward with hope and expectation to the next chapter in our family life.

I am very excited to announce that Mary Keller has been hired to be the principal at St. Francis de Sales School beginning July 1, 2021. Many of you already know Mary as one of our excellent assistant principals. Mary is truly a stand-out principal candidate who ensures continuity of excellent leadership for our parish school. Please join me in welcoming and congratulating our next principal Mary Keller!  

In order to ensure a seamless transition of all school operations I will return from leave on April 30th and work closely with Mary and the St. Francis de Sales Leadership Team as we complete the academic year through June.

I continue to pray for the good of the St. Francis de Sales community. May God bless us and bring us peace.

In Christ,

Principal Schmitt
