St. Francis Xavier Catholic School Update

 April 16, 2017

Happy Easter!


This week the St. Francis Xavier School students will raise the Alleluia on Tuesday during the Morning Broadcast Show in celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection!

Don’t forget that our second Donuts with Mom will be on Tuesday, April 18th.  Please join us if your schedule permits.

It’s Boosterthon time!  St. Francis Xavier School kicks off our second annual Boosterthon this week which will culminate in our FunRuns on April 27th.  We are excited for the character, team building and physical education lessons, as well as the opportunity to raise needed funds for our school that Boosterthon brings to SFX.  If you have any questions about Boosterthon, do not hesitate to contact Jen or Shawn Fugarino.  Thank you for your support.

We are appreciative of the families that have completed their registration information for the 2017-2018 school year and encourage those of you that have not, to do so as soon as possible.  Once again, all registration forms are now past due.  It is imperative that you complete your registration as soon as possible so that we may continue to plan for the upcoming school year.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Metzger in the school office as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Have a Blessed Week,

BoosterThon 2017 ~FUN RUNS and COLOR RUN~ St. Francis Xavier School                                                                                                                                                    



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.
