Light of Leadership passed on

At the last school Mass of 2016, the light of leadership was passed from our new alumni to the rising 8th graders in the traditional Candlelight Ceremony. The picture to the left shows the graduates handing candles to the 7th graders. After the Mass, the parents of the 7th graders hosted a brunch reception in Xavier Hall for the the 7th and 8th graders and their families. It was at this reception that our graduates were inducted into our alumni association and given a welcome gift of a black and gold pen and pencil set embossed with "SFXCS Alumni Association." Thanks to those who contributed financially last year to our alumni association. Please consider making a donation through our "Donate Now" button, located on the top banner of our homepage, to assist with alumni expenses (website maintenance and graduate gifts) as well as to help provide financial aid to those needy families that desire a Catholic education.

SFXCS Alumnus excelling on gridiron!

Former SFXCS student Deejay Dallas(above) has become quite a football star at Glynn Academy. Deejay was a member of the SFXCS Class of 2013 though departed our school a year early in order to jumpstart his football life in 8th grade at Glynn Middle. After a rocky start in the first few games of the 2015 season, the Red Terrors moved Deejay to quarterback. From that point on, the Terrors caught fire with Deejay leading the team all the way to the state title game in the Dome in Atlanta where GA lost a very tight game to Altoona, 10-7. Deejay returns to GA this Fall as a senior hoping to lead the Terrors to a state championship. Deejay has comitted to play college football at the University of Miami under the tutelage of former UGA coach Mark Richt. Great job, Deejay!

SFXCS alum has smashing season

Morgan Overly, SFXCS Class of 2014, recived Honorable Mention as one of the best 10th grade volleyball players in the country by the Prep Volleyball Super Soph 79 given out annually by PrepVolleyball.com. Morgan started as an outside hitter for the region champion Glynn Academy Lady Terrors and had a strong season with 461 kills and 676 digs.

GRACE Scholars

The state of Georgia has developed a program that allows one to redirect part of one's state tax liability to a private school of one's choice. The Bishops of Georgia have developed a program called GRACE Scholars which organizes these contributions for the Catholic schools within our state. The money goes to families needing help to pay tuition. An individual can redirect up to $1,000, married couples $2,500, and S-corporations up to $10,000 per year. This is money that would normally go to Atlanta to be spent as seen fit by the politicians there. Instead, this money would go to your private school of choice to be used for tuition assistance for financially qualifying students. Please consider signing up for this program through GRACE Scholars and request the deferred money be sent to SFXCS. You help deserving children at SFXCS, no additional money comes out of your pocket, and you can include this amount of money in your tax deductible charitable contributions on your Federal tax return. Learn more about this at gracescholars.org.

Beloved SFXCS teacher succombs to cancer

The SFXCS community was saddened this year with the loss of one of our special teachers, Debbie North. Mrs. North was a wonderful fourth grade teacher at our school when she developed leukemia. She valiantly fought the disease but died on March 14th. Unable to teach for the past two years due to her illness, she would still try to attend school functions when able. The students raised many dollars for the research and treatment of leukemia and lymphoma in her honor. Please pray for the repose of her soul and for her husband and two chldren.

Alumnae receive Diocesan award

Two alumnae of our school were recognized in the Fall of 2015 by the Diocese of Savannah with the Bishop Francis X. Gartland Service Award. Begun in 2000, this award recognizes long-standing service to the Catholic Church in South Georgia. Seventy-eight people throughout the diocese received the award. Honorees were nominated by their pastors, and Bishop Hartmeyer conferred the awards at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah. The award is named after the first Bishop of Savannah who died of Yellow Fever contracted from those to whom he ministered in 1854. The two members of SFX parish who received the award are shown above: top, Diane Lott(SFXCS Class of 1960), and below, with Bishop Hartmeyer, Katharine Thompson(Class of 1943 - St. Joseph Catholic School at that time).

Alumna wins Horseriding Championship

Erin Osbourn (SFXCS Class of 2014) and her horse, Pie, won the 2015 High Point Grand Championship on Dec. 7 in the hunter-jumper division at the annual Horse Shows in the Park awards banquet in Ocala, Fl. Competitors are judged based on the rider's style and ability. This award was for a season long effort which saw her be the winner or runner-up in about 12 shows between May and November, 2015 in North and Central Florida. Erin has been riding since 8 years old, and the rising Glynn Academy 11th grader hopes to earn a college equestrian scholarship - good luck, Erin! Pictured above is Erin riding Pie while jumping an obstacle and below, Erin with her Grand Champion ribbons she received at the Banquet. Congratulations, Erin!

Oh how our garden grew!

The SFXCS Kindergarten class undertook an agricultural project last year. The planting project had the students prepare the soil, do the planting, and nurture the plants through their growing season. The effort was a tremendous success with the production of many vegetables. The children were able to enjoy snacks from their garden. The top picture above shows the garden behind the Kindergarten classroom with the vegetables in their initial stage of growth. The bottom picture above shows the results of the children's efforts. I'd say that is quite a kinder garden!

    Blast from the past!

    Brief history of SFXCS

    Our school was started in 1900 by the Sisters of St. Joseph and has been in continuous operation since then. It was started as St. Joseph's Catholic School and was operated out of a single wooden building on Howe street. In the mid-1950's, with the support of St. Francis Xavier Parish, the current school facility was built along with the nearby convent. In appreciation of the parish support, the Sisters renamed the school St. Francis Xavier Catholic School. In the 1960's, the annex building was constructed, and other buildings along Reynolds Street to Howe Street were later added. The late 1980's brought the construction of Xavier Hall which the school uses for athletic events, lunch, PE classes, morning assembly, and meeting space. The Sisters of St. Joseph had an official presence at the school until the retirement of Sister Anna in 2005.
