FSA - Family & School Association
The Family & School Association (FSA) is a parent organization whose goal is to help advance the Catholic education of our children and to promote the spirit of St. Francis Xavier School by providing a supportive link between families and SFX school. The FSA achieves this goal by sponsoring educational and recreational events for school families. The FSA is funded through an annual fee, which is collected at the beginning of each school year. All funds earned in excess of the FSA budget are given directly to the school to benefit our children.
The Family & School Association Board currently consists of five parents that co-share the officer positions of the association. Each serves a two-year term.

The FSA works best when all school parents support the organization. The gifts of your time and energy as well as your participation in the FSA sponsored events enable the FSA to function well for the benefit of the school and our students. We are comprised of a Board of five people, almost 40 different committees, and over 200 volunteers. All SFX school families are members of FSA. The FSA supports many committees throughout the SFX school community from enrichment programs that enhance curriculum to socials that occur after school hours for students and families to come together and have fun.
All of our committees are run by parent volunteers: whatever your talents are, there is a spot for you! Volunteering is a terrific way to familiarize yourself with the school and to meet other parents. Thank you to all of our wonderful, spirited volunteers!
* All volunteers who come in direct contact with students must complete the “VIRTUS; Protecting God’s Children” training program.
