On behalf of the administration, faculty, staff, and the entire student body of the Saint Francis School for Girls I would like to extend you a warm welcome. Please feel free to pull up a chair and stay awhile.

Donít mind me if I seem lost in my work here. The semester is about to begin and thereís a lot of work to be done. Between going over room assignments, updating the student handbook and training our Senior Advisors, I have my hands full.

Besides I think youíll find your visit much more rewarding if you take some time to wander around campus a bit. You never know what you might find. You could stumble on Mary Catherine and Mandy hatching their latest perfectly innocent plot, which somehow always manages to spin out of control or you might see Brittney and company sorting orders from the latest Plaid Market delivery. A walk through Benning Hall might lead to you seeing a freshmen bending over her dorm room desk with her SA beside her, paddle in hand. With a school full of teenage girls thereís always something going on of interest.

Although all the girls are special there are some that keep popping up on my radar, which is why you see them so often.

They are usually standing in this office just about where you are. When that happens they are usually a lot less relaxed than you are because they're usually here as a result of the latest prank they've pulled or some other mischief at which they've been caught. That paddle you see behind you (affectionately known as the Mighty Thor) is put to good use on a regular basis, along with other implements like the cane, ruler and tawse.

I have to say though, often a good trip across my lap and a firm spanking with my hand is just as, if not more, effective in getting my point across. I've learned over the years, my girls will try very hard to keep from being turned over my knee!

Well, if youíll excuse me now I have a meeting with some members of the Saint Francis Honor Council starting in five minutes.

Enjoy your stay and please visit again soon. Make sure you email us on the way out, we'd love to know what you think of our campus.
