St. Francis Xavier Catholic School Update
May 28, 2017
Summer Vacation is Here!
I pray that our St. Francis Xavier School families have begun to relax and enjoy this time with each other. Before you know it, August will be here and we will be back at school. If you have the need to contact the school office over the next few months, please refer to the Summer School Office Hours found in the bulletin and on the school website.
Please keep your eyes on our school website and especially the calendar. We have begun to put dates on the calendar and as soon as more dates are finalized on the parish-wide calendar, we will add our many activities for the new school year.
Have a Blessed and Safe Summer.

We educate for excellence and together we learn to become Disciples of Christ.
Catholic schools have a long-standing commitment to academic excellence that is rooted in the faith-based mission of Catholic education. The Common Core State Standards in no way compromise the Catholic identity or educational program of a Catholic school.
The Common Core State Standards initiative, begun in 2007, is a state-led, bipartisan effort that is not a requirement for participation in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) or any other federally-funded program, and there are no mandates for any Catholic school to follow any federal rules if they adopt the Common Core. Adoption of the Common Core is voluntary; individual states, Catholic dioceses and other private schools make their own decisions about whether to adopt the standards.
