Your Weekly School Update
June 8, 2018
Final adventures...
This week's adventures...
We are certainly nearing the finish line!

On Monday evening, our 8th graders crossed the stage in their caps and gowns at St. Francis Xavier's 92nd commencement exercises! The graduation ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and was planned and executed thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Shaughnessy. While sending our students off to encounter their next adventure in life is bittersweet, it is an exciting time for the students and the school! Some of our recent grads have already been back this week to visit and tutor at their Alma mater!

Numerous rehearsals took place this week for the youngest members of our school family, who will be departing next to enter into summer. I look forward to seeing many parents and grandparents, to celebrate our 3 and 4 year olds, as well as graduate our kindergartners. Our Grade 1-7 students are still "plugging away" at their studies while demonstrating mastery of concepts with end of year benchmarks.
We are finishing strong.... while having some fun of course!
Have a great weekend!
