St. Francis Xavier Elementary participates in the annual Mississippi Reading Fair Competition sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Education whenever there is a Reading Fair. 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
