HOME AND SCHOOL UPDATES:
Calcutta 2017 (like Super Bowl LI) was a lot of fun!
We also raised more than $13,000 for Saint Francis Xavier School! Many thanks to the parents, former parents, SFX alumni, and faculty who turned out in support of our wonderful community. I am particularly grateful to committee members: Darlene Hester, Ryan and Caroline Smith, Mike Myers, Johanna English, Stacey Zierak, Jami Daigle, Donna Ritchie, and Dena and Tom Prim.
I would be remiss if I didn't publicly thank the unflappable and patient Ms. Nancy for selling tickets, managing the influx of gift cards and putting up with my constant requests for updates.
We are keenly aware of the time and effort that go into producing the beautiful class projects and amazing class baskets. These alone brought in nearly $2,000! Thank you! A list of the highest bidders for the baskets and projects is at Ms Nancy's desk if you are curious.
Generosity was in abundant display - two people who were in the final ten sold their balls - not for their own benefit, but for the school's - with a total of $575 going to SFX! The final three people standing at the end of the night also split the $1,500 jackpot and donated $300 back to SFX. It was truly a great night.

Girls on the Run
will be starting their Spring 2017 session at the end of March. A big thank you to returning coach Brandi Roy and new Head Coach Jessica Unrein for stepping in and leading the SFX girls in another season! However, we are still in need of three parent volunteers. The group will meet on Mondays and Thursdays, 3-4:30pm. If interested in volunteering, please contact Brandi Roy,
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
It's time to bring out the green, gold and purple!
The Mardi Gras themed Bowl-A-Thon, to be held at Spare Time on Friday, February 24 from 8:45am-11:45am, is almost here! A Sign Up Genius link will go out this week for donations of desserts, muffins, fruit and cases of water to feed the hungry bowlers. If you would like to sign up ahead of the link, please email Jami Daigle, email@example.com, with your donation. We are also looking for parent volunteers for this event. Please let us know if you would like to be part of this fun event.
