New: Update Regarding Alert System
After the testing of our alert system, we have discovered a more efficient way of reaching parents in case of a weather related alert or other emergency announcement. Please disregard the directions that were previously sent out. We have found a way to pull contact phone numbers directly from the first two parent contacts listed in PowerSchool. If, in the future, you receive a phone call or text message at a phone # that you no longer wish to receive it on, or need to add a student cell, please contact Meg Hansen at: or 319-294-6635 X309.
New: Help in the Concession Stands is Still Needed
This Fall Xavier Booster Club has raised over $23,000 in concessions due to the tremendous support of XBC Concessions Chairs Kim Loffswold, Justine Kadlec and parents from Band, Boy's Tennis, Volleyball, Girl's CC, and Wrestling! All of the profits from concessions is allocated directly to the 40+ activities that Xavier Booster Club supports. 
Help in concessions is still needed for December.  Activities that will volunteer for concessions include:  Football, Boys Cross Country, Girls Track, Boys Track, Boys Golf, Drama, and Volleyball.  If your student participates in these activities please review the sign up for volunteer spots.  All parents and volunteers are welcome regardless of activity to volunteer.  Many hands make light work. 

Please sign up today!
