Xavier Charter School Pay It Forward Projects
This summer, all students at Xavier Charter School are encouraged to participate in our annual school wide “Pay It Forward” Project.
Students in grades kindergarten through 2nd grade will be participating in family projects. Third through 12th graders will be doing individual projects.
What is the rationale for “Pay It Forward”? Making people around you better starts with yourself. Ghandi said, “You must be the change you hope to see in others.” Marian Edelman once said that “Service to others is the rent we pay for living. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time.”
Our goal is for each student to participate in a service project for someone outside of their family. It is not necessary to spend money unless you are going to earn it first. The gift of time is sometimes all it takes to make a difference in someone’s life. Make sure you get a picture of your project, and then write one paragraph explaining what you did, and how it made you feel. Be sure to include your name (or the names of all the people that worked with you) on your project, as well as your grade level for next year. Bring it to school in the fall, and we will have a special “Pay-It-Forward” wall to display all of the projects. We have attached a paper to use, or feel free to use your own creativity in reporting about your project. Ideas for projects might be to make cookies for an elderly neighbor, visit someone in an assisted living facility, do some yard work for a neighbor, help an elderly shopper bag their groceries, join a “Paint Magic” team, walk dogs at the animal shelter etc. The possibilities are numerous. Please let people know you are from Xavier Charter School.
Our goal is for you to experience the joy of service to others. Have a wonderful summer!

As proud as I am of the hard work and resourcefulness of the yearbook class, we have been fighting an uphill battle with technology for some time. Therefore, the yearbooks will not be delivered until summer. You may still place an order at the office through May 31 ($35).
If you ordered a yearbook, please be sure your correct contact information (phone number, email, and address) is on file with the school. We will send out an email and post an announcement on the website when they are delivered this summer so you may pick them up. Thank you for your patience!
