Several years ago, St. Francis Xavier School began a tradition of inviting young Alumni to campus each spring to enjoy the school’s annual Field Day festivities. Members of the SFX class that are graduating from high school that year, and are off to begin their freshman year of college in the fall, return to SFX in June to reconnect before departing for a variety of college campuses across the US. Students come to school wearing T- shirts and sweatshirts bearing their new college’s name and logo, are announced to an all-school assembly by the Principal (and greeted with thunderous applause!), and enjoy lunch together as a class. It’s an exciting day for all who come.
If you’d like to learn more about our Young Alumni Field Day tradition, or would like to help organize a similar event for your Young Alumni class, please call the school office at 847/256-0644 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
