Fourth county title in a row!

Our SFXCS girls have done it again! On October 25th, the Lady Crusaders defended their title by winning the Glynn County middle school tournament held at Glynn Middle School. After a dominating season without losing a match, our girls got a bye in the first round as the number one seed. That put us into the semifinal against Jane Macon where some first game jitters made for some nervous moments before our girls won, 25-19, and then closed out an easier second game, 25-12. The championship match came against a very determined Glynn Middle squad in front of a raucus home crowd  for our opponent. Our girls showed great poise and won with confidence, 25-14, 25-18, in spite of the adversity. The above photo shows our winning team moments after the victory: front row, L to R - Anna Beck, Hayley Turpin, and Caitlyn Tigani, second row, L to R - KK McNeal, Maria Barr, Shyama Patel, Kelsey Ann Cabiness, Montana Webb, Riley Mansfield, Ella Lane, Sally Brock, back row, L - R: Rachel Walters, Riley Lowery, Emma Hayes, Kate Beerman, and Kaylee Scarboro; to the far left is Head Coach Mike Tennant and Asst. Coach Lance Turpin; and to back R is Asst. Coach Gaby Soler Jenson.

Hurricane Hero!

Andy Jones, SFXCS Class of 1981, received plenty of well deserved praise recently for his assistance with recovery from Hurricane Matthew. Andy, a lifelong resident and 4th generation native St. Simons Islander, and the Jones Maintenance Company are tree maintenance contractors for Glynn County. The Category 2 hurricane came close to hitting Glynn County on October 6th, and though our area was spared devestating consequences, it caused huge amount of tree damage and power outage making SSI not accessible for 5 days. Andy rode out the storm at home, and on the morning after the storm, he began clearing rodes of trees with a chainsaw and backhoe. His work was critical in providing access to the island for Ga. Power, law enforcement, and emergency personnel. Thanks for all of your hard work, Andy!

Killer, Dude!

Morgan Overly, SFXCS Class of 2014, has made news again in the volleyball world. Morgan, a junior at Glynn Academy, reached the milestone of 1,000 kills during her high school carrer in a match against Calvary Day this Fall. Achieving 1,000 kills for a whole high school career is quite a feat, so achieving this number in her junior year makes Morgan really stand out. Her high school coach calls her a "special player," and Morgan has been a starting "Hitter" since her Freshman year at GA. The Lady Terror netters finished their season as the number 2 team in their region. They lost to a strong Gainesville HS team in the first round of the state playoffs, but the Terrors certainly will be shooting for a deeper run in the playoffs in Morgan's senior year.

SFXCS Alum having another great year 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 leading the team all the way to the state title game in the Dome in Atlanta last year, Deejay has returned to GA this Fall as a senior. He has quarterbacked the team to a 9-1 regular season record and a Region Championship. The Terrors begin the State Playoffs on Friday Nov. 11th with the hope of reaching the title game in Atlanta again. Deejay has comitted to play college football at the University of Miami under the tutelage of former UGA coach Mark Richt. Great job, Deejay!

K'Shaun is pictured above with his mom and Grandmothers after signing his scholarship offer. Great job, K'Shaun, and we wish you all the best!

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.

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!

    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.
