I will not be spend much time writing about the weather this week as it is clear that spring is not quite here, yet. It has been an outstanding March and we are so excited to start the month of April. We are looking forward to the beginning of baseball and softball season . . . if that weather will just cooperate!
If you have not recently taken a look at you lunch account, please do so. Our lunch program is a break even item in our budget. When accounts are not paid up, it puts a strain on the school’s finances. In order to check your lunch balance, go to the My School Account website (https://www.myschoolaccount.com/). There is also a link to that website on our home page under the parent resources tab. Once you log in, you can take a look at your account. We have some visitors from the state coming to review our program next week, so it is a great time for us to get everything in tip-top shape. If you have any questions about your lunch account, please feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) .
It also the time of year for students to begin thinking about taking winter gear home. We are almost done with hats, gloves, and boots and snowpants. You may want to check with your student to make sure all those materials are back in your possession. We have a lost and found, as well, where many of these items end up. If you are missing some winter gear, or any other items, please feel free to stop in and take a look. You’d be amazed at what gets left behind at school sometimes!
Our students are always busy here at school during the week, but this weekend also brings lots of activity. Our 6th and 8th grade boys’ CYO basketball teams are traveling to Connecticut to represent us in the CYO regional tournament. We know they will play their hardest and do a wonderful job representing the Saint Francis Xavier community. Also this Saturday, our intrepid middle school science teacher, Mrs. Mary Ellen Varhue, will be taking a group of our 7th and 8th graders to the State Science Fair at Norwich University to show off their impressive projects to judges throughout the day. Best of luck to all our students and many thanks to the teachers, coaches, and parents who help make these opportunities possible for our students.
