“Faith lifts the soul on one side. Hope supports it on the other. 

Experience says it must be. Love says, let it be.” 

~ St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, patron of Catholic Schools

KIDS to KIDS Collection - continues through January 13th

We are accepting waterproof gloves in all sizes - kids and adults, as well as gently used outdoor winter gear and boots.

 

In addition, please take a look at our list and consider doing some shopping. Perhaps it's a good use for the extra store rewards you've earned. Donations can be dropped off in the XMS office. Thank you!

XMS Winter Variety & Talent Show - Thursday, February 2nd

Be creative! Sing, dance, play an instrument, read a poem, act out a skit, create a slideshow, make a movie, tell some jokes, and show off some athletic moves, feel free to think “outside the box” with your participation. Kids may participate as a solo or within a group.

 

XMS will showcase the many talents of our student body during Catholic Schools Week Thursday, February 2nd at 9:30 am. The information flyer is linked here.

 

Students and groups who wish to participate must sign up for an audition time.  The 10 minute audition appointments will take place after school in the choir room on January 17th, January 18th, and January 19th. Please only sign up for one audition appointment. Click here for answers to frequently asked questions.

The Scholastic Book Fair is Here!

The bookfair is in full swing in the Xavier Middle School Library!  If you would like to set up an eWallet so you do not have to send money with your child click here.

 

You can set up an eWallet with a credit card or debit card under your child's name.   All proceeds go to buy new books for the school library so your support is appreciated!

Lost and Found

Please click here to take a look at the Lost and Found items we have collected to see if any belong to your family. Your child can pick their things up from the office lobby. All lost and found items will be donated after January 27th!

Inside Out Cafe

Inside Out Cafe will be meeting this Thursday after school from about 3:35 until 4:15 to learn about and write our 6-word Epitaphs.  Meet in room 1411, Ms. Bouchard's room with a pen/pencil and writing journal.

3-D Printing Club

The 3-D Printing Club is up and running…or should we say printing! Here is a phone holder that was designed and printed by John VanDerKolk.

Gamer’s Club

Does your child enjoy playing video games? Xavier's Gamers Club is coming back! This club allows  friends to play a variety of games on retro and modern consoles. They can put their skills to the test with gaming tournaments for prizes. The Gamers Club will meet every other week starting this Thursday, January 5th in the cafeteria after school.
