New: World Suicide Prevention Day
Today is World Suicide Prevention Today. The Student Services team wants to emphasize the importance of talking about mental health with all students and to encourage a culture of support. School Counselors Mrs. Liz Donner and Mrs. Ally Callanan are available to address concerns with students as the challenges of the past few years weigh heavily on many. While there is an abundance of resources on this topic, the following resource by the CDC and Ad Counsel can be a great conversation starter for families on building and maintaining positive mental health practices:

Reminder: Help in Concessions
Concessions is the Booster Club’s biggest fundraiser and would not be possible without parent support. Each activity and sport is responsible for running Xavier’s concession stand 3 to 4 times each school year. September's activities that will volunteer for concessions include: Girls Basketball, Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, Robotics and Volleyball.
