Spirit Day Walkathon


Faculty vs. Students Softball Game

On Friday, October 10th, Grades 6 – 12 will be participating in Xaverian’s Spirit Day Walkathon tradition. This day, which closes the school's annual Spirit Week, will celebrate and reflect upon our Catholic spirit of charity, community, and friendship. 

On Spirit Day, we raise funds to assist families in our School community, in both our upper and middle school, who suffer unexpected events or tragedies. Without financial assistance, these families might be forced to withdraw their sons and daughters from Xaverian.  We ask each Xaverian family to make a suggested donation of $100 in support of Spirit Day. We hope that families who have the financial means to contribute will be as generous as possible, but please know that those families who are not able can rest assured that their child will be most definitely included and welcomed in the events of the day.  Please note that all contributions to Xaverian in support of the Spirit Day are tax deductible and you will receive a letter acknowledging your gift. All who give will also be recognized in the 2014 Annual Report. Read President Alesi's Spirit Day letter here.  

To make your contribution, please visit www.xaverian.org/donate and select “Spirit Day Walkathon” as the gift designation.  Additionally, you can send a check made payable to Xaverian with the student’s name in the memo line in to your son’s homeroom teacher.  

Anyone who brings in $100 or more qualifies for a raffle!  
1st prize - 32 inch TV
2nd prize - Beats Headphones
3rd prize - Apple TV
