St. Francis Xavier Elementary participates in the annual Mississippi Reading Fair Competition sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Education. The purpose of the competition is to provide students the opportunity to share their favorite fictional, non-fiction narrative, or informational book through a storyboard or digital media display. Elementary students are encouraged to participate.
There are four levels of competition: Level 1 - School, Level 2 - District, Level 3 - Regional, and Level 4 - State. Only 1st place winners in each division proceed to the next round of competition.
Guidelines have been established to create a uniform procedure and provide resources for school, district, and regional level Reading Fairs. See the latest Student Guidelines and Student Project Checklists: http://www.mde.k12.ms.us/oeer/readingfair
