| Head of School Letter

Dear FXW Community,In this space, I have referenced my family, sometimes without their knowledge or permission, to provide a context for the message of the month.

Dear FXW Community, It was mid-July, 19 years ago. Lily, our first-born, was 5 days old, and my wife and I were taking her to her first visit to the pediatrician. I do not remember the pediatrician’s name, or where his office was, or any details of his assessment of our daughter. I do, however, remember what…

Dear FXW Community, What are your thoughts on New Year’s resolutions? I ask this rhetorically to provide some perspective after turning the page on 2018.

Dear FXW Community, It is interesting what we remember from our childhood. Recently, while “supervising” six nieces and nephews between the ages of 5 and 12, I was reminded of a time when I was being a pesky little brother.

Dear Parents, As we transition from summer into fall, I have been thinking a great deal about change and constancy. What things change, and what remains constant? During our Back-to-School Mass, Fr. Greg Sakowicz shared how excited he was for the new school year, but he also noted that summer seemed to fly right by. Then, tongue in…

Dear Parents, Looking at the calendar and seeing “August” at the top always quickens my pulse a bit. I love the cycle of the school year, and the excitement and anticipation of a new year certainly gets the adrenalin going. Summer is a great time for us to pause and catch our breath, and then put the plans and pieces…

Dear Parents, It’s all about perspective. As I begin my third year here at FXW, each day continues to bring something new and special.

Dear Parents, Earlier this week, I turned the page on my calendar with great enthusiasm. Seeing that August has arrived means that school starts soon.
