St. Francis Xavier Catholic School Update
May 27, 2018
Our School Year Comes to an End!
This week brings the last few days of an extremely busy year. It is hard to believe that this school year is so close to the end. With so few days left, there are many things that we still need to accomplish and celebrate, most especially, all of our Graduates! Our SFX students have been involved in amazing activities throughout this entire school year. We have shared with our school families, our parish community and the greater community of Medina the many great accomplishments that our St. Francis Xavier School students have been involved in this past year. The entire staff is very proud of all of our St. Francis Xavier School students. In addition, our school community is certainly proud to be moving forward with our STREAM initiative with the opening of our X-STREAM Launch Lab in the fall and our continued growth and knowledge in the technology world. Most importantly, we recite our school mission statement every day and we truly LIVE out our mission each day, using the 13 Messages from Milo to do it in a positive way.
This week, our students will be honored at our yearly Awards Ceremony on Tuesday. The many students receiving honors will again confirm that great things are happening at St. Francis Xavier School.
Congratulations to our 8th Grade Graduates. The entire staff of St. Francis Xavier School wishes each of them the best of luck in their high school futures and beyond.
This year we have the very difficult task of saying good bye to a very special teacher that will be retiring from St. Francis Xavier School at the end of this school year. Please join me in wishing good luck to Mrs. Gail Reynolds, one of our 3rd grade classroom teachers, as she starts down a new path in her life’s journey. Her dedication to Catholic Education and St. Francis Xavier School has been immense and she will definitely be missed by all.
Finally, 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. Thank you. 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.
