St. Francis Xavier Catholic School Update

April 22, 2018

St. Francis Xavier School Receives National Honor!

I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you about our amazing school.  St. Francis Xavier School was chosen as a finalist in Today’s Catholic Teacher’s Innovations in Catholic Education Awards for 2018! This award is sponsored by the Today’s Catholic Teacher publication.  Our school has been awarded this national recognition in the category of Innovative Projects in Total Community Involvement including Fundraising.  We were honored for our community partnership with the Race for Grace Foundation, as it has enhanced the educational experience within the school.

 

Our school was recognized at a special reception in Cincinnati, Ohio during the NCEA National Convention in April. (NCEA stands for National Catholic Education Association, which St. Francis Xavier School is a member in good standing)  Several teachers and I attended the National Convention and accepted the award on behalf of Fr. Tony Sejba and St. Francis Xavier School.

 

The entire St. Francis Xavier School staff is extremely excited and privileged to have received this honor.  This accolade is a testament to the hard work and commitment of the St. Francis Xavier School staff.  This is the second time St. Francis Xavier School has received the Innovations in Catholic Education Award.  I am so very proud of our St. Francis Xavier School community, including our staff, students and parents for their commitment to making our school an outstanding leader in our Medina community.

 

Have a blessed week.

In Christ,

 

Mrs. Seislove

Common Core State Standards

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.
