Senior Parents
We would like to invite you to our Senior Parent night on Tuesday, September 15th, starting at 6:30pm in the auditorium. 

Please arrive about 10 minutes earlier as we will have your student's transcript for you to pick up and it takes a bit to get everyone through the line. We plan to be finished by 7:45pm.

Due to space constraints, seating is limited in the auditorium. We are asking that if you do choose to come in person, that you only have one parent attend. If every senior only has one parent attend, we will be fine with seating capacity. Seat options will be spread out to accommodate social distancing, and we ask that everyone wear a mask over your mouth and nose while in the building. We recognize that not everyone will be comfortable attending in person so we will be recording the evening. Anyone who wishes to receive the recording for any reason please email Mrs Beth Carpenter and she will get that to you.  bcarpenter@xaviercatholicschools.org

We will be covering graduation, senior academics, college and scholarship applications, and extras like placement exams and reporting AP scores.

Your students do not need to be there, as we will be giving them this information in classrooms this week.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,
Kim Hammen, Eric Neiswender, and Lori Schuh
