EDUCATING THE WHOLE CHILD THE FRANCES XAVIER WARDE SCHOOL | 2012-2013 ANNUAL REPORT 1
MISSION The Frances Xavier Warde School is a Catholic elementary school in downtown Chicago that provides an academically excellent, values-oriented education to students of all ethnic, religious, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds in a child-centered urban environment. As a keystone of its diverse community, The Frances Xavier Warde School provides need-based scholarships to 30 percent of its students. The Frances Xavier Warde School partners with its families, nurtures faith development for its Catholic students, and engages all its students to learn about and respect other faith traditions. The Frances Xavier Warde School uses a rigorous curriculum that enables students to grow, clarify their values, and develop decision-making skills and a sense of responsibility for themselves and the world they will inherit.
LETTER FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL & BOARD OF TRUSTEES CHAIR Dear Friends of FXW, Mother Frances Warde, our school’s namesake, believed that we should receive all things as signs of blessing for our good. Each year, we are reminded that your gifts of time, talent and treasure are true blessings to our school community. You are not only supporting our teachers and students, you are investing in their future. A day never goes by without each of us realizing that without your generosity, we could not continue to provide and enhance our excellent curriculum, our spiritual formation programs and the many co-curricular opportunities that are afforded to our students each day. In FY13, your generosity enabled us to expand our social emotional learning program under the direction of Erin Horne, pilot our 1:1 iPad program, continue to expand our extracurricular and athletic program offerings and provide a rich academic and social experience for our students. Your investment is a true blessing to the lives of the children we teach. We encourage you to browse through this report so you can experience and relive our school-wide service events, Gala and even graduation—and more importantly enjoy the impact of your financial support. Without your ongoing generosity, we could not continue to deliver the school’s mission and ensure The Frances Xavier Warde School retains its values as a Catholic Independent School. As we look to the year ahead, we know there will be challenges, but with your continued support, those challenges will create new opportunities and blessings for our students. On behalf of the entire FXW community, we thank you for your continued commitment and support.

THE YEAR IN REVIEW In FY13, over 900 children from across Chicago embarked on another year of academics, faith, service and friendship. We responded to the desire to do more for our community by moving forward with cutting-edge learning initiatives, providing academic support programs, and expanding our extra-curricular and athletic offerings, all the while continuing to nurture the hearts and minds of Jaguars.

scores? Or should we focus on other attributes such as selfawareness, self-regulation, relationship building skills and resilience? A growing body of research indicates that a child’s emotional health is a better indicator of their future success than academic performance, and results in better work performance, more lasting relationships and lower levels of stress and anxiety later in life. In the 2012-2013 school year, FXW introduced the MindUP© socialemotional learning program with the hopes of expanding on a school-wide basis the following academic year. Social-emotional learning is based on the idea that children need to learn to manage their emotions in order to reach their full potential. Research has repeatedly shown that emotions can either enhance or hinder a child’s ability to learn. “Children who are clear-minded and calm learn better,” says Danielle Kelly, assistant principal. The MindUP© curriculum helps students to understand the innerworkings of their own minds. Students learn that the hippocampus stores our memories; the prefrontal cortex is the learning, thinking and reasoning center of our brain; and the amygdala serves as a

Better Self for a Better World: Living the Legacy Beyond the Classroom A hallmark of the Catholic faith tradition is a concern for the common good borne out in service to others. FXW students, families, alumni, faculty and staff embrace this philosophy as a way of life. In FY13, the FXW community embarked on an exciting year-long service initiative to honor the school’s namesake, Mother Frances Xavier Warde. The goal – to complete 4,000 community service hours—was far surpassed by the community, with members completing 5,144 hours of service. Students across grade levels shared their time and talents with those most in need. Some events included preparing and serving meals for the homeless at the Intersection Café in North Lawndale to dinners at the Ronald McDonald House for families caring for loved ones at Lurie Children’s, to participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, to clean-up days at local Archdiocesan schools through the Big Shoulders Fund to volunteering with Misericordia during their annual Candy Days.
“This experience made me feel that I was a leader. I would love to do this again because serving the poor is a great thing. There are many people in Chicago that are homeless and we need to help them.”
Through these projects, donation drives, and individual family service opportunities, the FXW community truly honored the legacy of Mother Warde by reaching out to those who needed a helping hand. As current 7th grader Jerry Chen noted, “It made me feel like if we all work together, we could make the world, the community, a better place.” In recognition of FXW’s historic year of service, a flag was flown above the state capitol. This honor, reserved for individuals and organizations that have completed notable achievements in the state, highlights FXW’s impact in the Chicago community and beyond. We thank core committee members and volunteers of the Living the Legacy project for their dedication and continued commitment to serve our external community.
“My service made me feel good because I knew I was helping others. I knew my few hours would leave quite a great impact on students just like me in a different neighborhood who are not as fortunate as I am. I would love to do more service for my community, especially with my family! Through this experience I learned what a blessing my education and facilities at FXW are, and not to take our exceptional school for granted.” –8th Grader
At FXW, we believe we are partners with our parents in their child’s educational process.
THE FXW COMMUNITY FXW is more than an outstanding Catholic Independent school. It is a vibrant community, reflective of our great city of Chicago, a place where children are prepared to not only succeed as students but also as citizens and leaders in a changing world. In FY13, we continued to nurture our school community in a variety of ways—from an enlivened parent presence to re-engagement opportunities for our graduates.
WE ARE PARENTS At FXW, we believe we are partners with our parents in their child’s educational process. More importantly, parent involvement is at the heart of our school community. FXW parents utilize their talents and skills to enrich the FXW experience. Together, and with our parent organizations Parent Group (PGAB) and Parents at the Heart (PATH), we create a stronger community. We thank the chairs and close to 100 core members of both PGAB and PATH for providing FXW with ongoing events and activities including: n

GALA Nearly 1,000 guests attended the annual dinner and auction in February at The Marriot Magnificent Mile. The Gala which featured dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions and paddle raise, netted $552,000. Popular auction items included our first 80’s group sign-up party, our ever popular teacher treats and a diverse live auction featuring the best in food and wine, sports and one-of-a-kind experiences! More than 100 volunteers helped ensure the Gala’s success. We especially wish to recognize the exceptional commitment of the 2013 Gala Chairs: Aimee Daley, Julie Davis, Amy Freshwater and Carolyn Kirk.

CHILDREN AT THE CROSSROADS FOUNDATION Founded in 1990, the Children at the Crossroads Foundation (CATC) supports FXWâ€™s mission of economic diversity through endowed and annual scholarship funding. Through the generosity of corporations, foundations and individuals, FXW receives funding to offer need-based scholarships to 30-percent of our current population. Many FXW families participate in CATC development efforts by playing in the annual golf outing, making contributions to the Scholarship Sunday Appeals, and attending the annual Scholarship Dinner and Ultimate Family Playdate or other events throughout the year. The FXW community is grateful for CATCâ€™s partnership and support. For more information about CATC visit www.catc.org.

WAYS TO GIVE SUMMARY FXW, like most independent schools, relies on your support to sustain its academic programming, provide for facilities maintenance and retain outstanding faculty. Tuition does not cover the full cost of an FXW education and we turn to our entire community for involvement and support. With your continued generosity, we are able to provide the unique programs and support the faculty and staff who make The Frances Xavier Warde School experience special. We invite you to join us in our fundraising efforts especially through your support of: n
The Annual Fund, the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts.
Gala, our annual benefit dinner and auction. Children at the Crossroads Foundation (CATC), an
independent 501(c)3 charitable organization that supports FXWâ€™s mission of economic diversity through endowed and annual scholarships. For more information on how you can give to FXW visit www.fxw.org/supporting-fxw/. The Frances Xavier Warde School is entirely self-supporting and does not receive subsidies from the Archdiocese of Chicago or partner parishes. As a 501(c)3, not-for-profit institution, gifts to The Frances Xavier Warde School (Federal Tax ID#27-0259853) are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. All gifts made between July 1 and June 30 are recognized in our Annual Report.
