Dear St. Francis Xavier Families,
It is with great excitement that we announce that the school renovations will begin on June 1, 2019! A new roof, a new electrical system, new light fixtures, new air conditioners, and new windows will give our school a whole new look! The architect and builders predict that the renovations will take about seven months to complete.
In order to complete these renovations and to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, St. Francis Xavier Catholic School will temporarily relocate to a building which we will lease from the City of Brunswick at 503 Mansfield Street. We will lease the building from August until the renovations are completed sometime before Christmas. The building will accommodate grades Kindergarten through eighth grade. Our Preschool and Pre-K classes will be held in the St. Ann room and St. Joseph room in Xavier Hall.
A strong structure in excellent condition, the Mansfield Building will be equipped with cameras and a security system similar to the one in use at the school. The building has ample room for our dedicated teachers and staff to offer innovative teaching techniques and creative styles of instruction. In addition, student activities will be scheduled regularly during the short occupancy, and daily routines will have few disruptions.
Careful consideration has been taken to choose a site only two blocks away. This location will allow the students to be close enough to the school and church so their schedule will still include weekly Mass, P.E, and extracurricular activities.
This relocation will be an important and significant undertaking to complete our renovations.We will be forming a transition team, including teachers and parents, to assist in planning, organization and logistics. Please let us know if you are interested in helping in any way. Complete cooperation is essential to the success of this project and we appreciate your willingness to guarantee St. Francis Xavier Catholic School’s encouraging future.
After many years of ideas and planning, we are excited about these major renovations! Thank you for all the various groups that have helped prepare for this moment.
We invite parents to visit our temporary location later this summer.
God bless you,
Fr. Tim McKeown Dr. Terry Mermann
