November 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 the end of the 2020-2021 school year. 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. .
Did you know...
You can access your student's lunch activities (purchases) in PowerSchool? Simply log-into your PowerSchool access account on your computer (not your phone) and click on "Balance" under the Navigation bar on the left side of your screen. You can see a list of your student's lunch purchases for the year.
Little Hawks- XYBA Basketball Program
Kindergartners through 2nd graders: Do you like basketball? You have never played and want to try? Sign up for the Xavier Youth Basketball Association's "Little Hawks" program. "Little Hawks" is an introductory fun practice opportunity for kids to learn the skills of the game of basketball, and prepare for further participation in the 3rd through 8th grade XYBA program. Registration is slated to happen later this calendar year, with the hope that practices may begin after Jan. 1 2021. These dates are later than previous years, as our board is working to secure practice space and times, and plan precautions and protocol for the safety of all participants. More information will be provided as soon as it is available. We hope you consider having your child join us! Go Hawks hoops!
