Teacher appreciation fun!
Thank you to the School Events Committee and various volunteers, our teachers and staff enjoyed a daily dose of appreciation this week! The grande finale? A teacher luncheon with complete duty coverage!
As the expression goes, never a dull moment ! This week was certainly one that was highlighted by the unexpected and unplanned execution of an emergency procedure. By now I am sure that you have all read the details of Wednesday afternoon’s police activity, and the reason for their final landing here in our SFX parking lot. Thank you, once again, for your patience and support as we did our best to keep our students safe and calm in a somewhat scary situation. 

Some of you may have noticed the return of our former property manager, John Guilloutte . We are pleased to welcome him back into the fold, and are equally as grateful to Mike Girouard who stepped up to help out in a time of need for our school family.  The upkeep, maintenance and cleanliness of our school is a major priority, and we are so blessed to have had the best people to execute this colossal task! 

Our 8 th graders attended Mass with the Bishop at St. Mary’s Cathedral yesterday, and for me this signifies “the beginning of the end” for them. Their gowns were delivered in the afternoon, and the reality of graduation immediately began to set in. The Grade 8 final days will unfold very quickly and shortly after that, the entire school will be released and launched into summer! Please take the time, energy and effort (that we at times simply do not have) to check the school website for the answers to the questions you may have regarding any classroom and school happenings.

SEC Announcements
Parents! The end of the year’s fundraiser is the St. Francis Xavier Fun Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on  Wednesday, May 22nd  . Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on  Friday, June 7th .  With our big goal of raising $20K for a piece of new playground equipment, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.
Students will experience an amazing character theme,  MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB ! Boosterthon’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.
Donations will go toward fundraising item(s). So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors once we kick-off! Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run!  Thank you for your support!
