October Lunch Menu - click here
Thanks to a waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System and Chartwells are now able to offer a free lunch for all students within the Xavier System through December 31st, 2020. This means that a free, school-provided lunch is available for all students.
  
Meals will include an entree with assorted fruits and vegetables, along with a choice of 1% chocolate or 1% white milk. A la carte (chips, water, extra entrée, cookies, etc), including any milk purchased outside of the full meal, will cost extra and is NOT included with the free lunch.

Lunch account payments should still be made as A la Carte purchases do not qualify for the Free Lunch. 

We also encourage parents to pay off negative balances at this time. .

Families should continue to submit the free and reduced applications as the waiver runs out at the end of December and Xavier will begin charging normal prices starting in January.
One Day - Multiple Events - One Xavier Community
All are Welcome!

We have exciting news—the annual Fun Run/Dog Walk/Bike Ride (the Tour de Francis is newly moved to this date) on Saturday morning of Homecoming weekend (10/10) is still happening! This is something the whole family can do! We’ve made some changes, taken precautions, received approval from Appleton’s Public Health Department, and are planning for a great morning! 

Click here for our “What Moves You” event webpage for more details and to register to join us (virtually or in-person!) for this fabulous morning of fun, friendship, and fitness. Note: we had planned for a fun social time after with Food Trucks and socially distant, outdoor fun, but those plans will now be for next year.

Orders can go home with your children
As we are continuing to deal with the Covid-19 virus, we are limiting people who may enter our buildings. With that in mind, you will not be able to come into your school to pick up orders. You can have your child bring home your orders. However, you must first sign and return the permission slip. You will find this form below. The permission slip will allow your child to bring home orders throughout the current school year.
