Greetings, I hope you all had a happy and restful holiday season and are anticipating the next year with optimism.

I have a small announcement to make. As a result of my stroke three years ago, I find it necessary to have regular treatment at the Muir Island facility. Until now, I have commuted to Scotland in order to have those treatments. However, I have decided this year to relocate to Muir Island, both for my health and as a semi-retirement. I say "semi" as I plan to assist Dr. MacTaggart with her patients. I also plan to continue my sessions with those who have requested my help, via electronic means, having discussed this decision with them already.

With regards to the Institute and the mansion, I leave the running of both in the capable hands of my former students. I will always be available for advice and assistance, and I will always be a teleport away. You also will be seeing me from time-to-time, as I plan to make occasional visits to not only 'check up' on things, but to enjoy the company of those whom I consider family - all of you within these walls.

I wish you all the best of luck with your enterprises this year, and I know you will continue to make me proud. I intend to make my departure by the end of the month, and will be available until then to assist in the transition.

I'll be out of town this weekend attending a conference in Washington. I'll be reachable in case of emergency, and will return late Sunday.

Hello All-

Because of the increase in med lab staff, Amelia Voght has decided to relocate to Muir Island to work with Moira, where she feels her skills are more required. She'll still be readily available for help in the event of an emergency.

I have an announcement with regards to Cerebro, the telepathy-enhancing device that I have previously used to locate mutants.

As I explained previously, my stroke has reduced my telepathic ability to a significant level, to the point that I am no longer able to use Cerebro. Additionally, the backlash of losing so many minds at once during the "M-Day" event has damaged Cerebro beyond repair, such that anyone else trying to use it would suffer similar damage to myself. I cannot allow anyone else to take this risk.

Therefore, Cerebro will be decommissioned and dismantled. I have confidence in the abilities and resources of the various individuals within the mansion to be able to fill the gap created by this action in terms of locating new mutants and providing assistance when they are in need of it.

If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to me in my office.

Professor Xavier.

Hello to you all, old and new faces.

You may have heard that I was recently ill. That is correct - as a result of the events of New Year's Eve, I suffered a minor stroke and was confined to the medlab for a time.

Today I have been granted my release papers, so to speak, and while I have been expressly forbidden by Drs. Reyes and Voght from performing the full range of my previous duties, I hope to be back in my office sooner rather than later. There is much to be done.

I would also like to offer my assistance to anyone suffering unduly from recent events. While my telepathy is, unfortunately, greatly reduced for the time being, my more "ordinary" skills, including my counselling abilities, remain intact and my door is, as it always has been, open for those needing my help.

My thanks to the medical staff for their care and concern over my well-being. It is good to be back among you all.

Professor Charles Xavier.

You may be aware that we have successfully located and retrieved Miss Abbott and Miss Collins. They are currently in the medlab; Hope has sustained some bruising and broken ribs and should be able to return to her own room soon. Laurie will be staying in the medlab longer; she is physically well, but she has acute sleep deprivation and will need to rest.

Questions regarding visits can be directed to the medlab staff. Questions regarding the circumstances of their absence can be directed to myself.

Despite the fact many of the students have no need to travel outside for classes, I have considered the psychological benefits and I am hereby declaring today a Snow Day. All classes are suspended today and you are all encouraged to go and enjoy yourself and decompress in whatever manner you see fit*.

(*provided it does not involve property damage or personal injury on purpose)

I have picked up significant numbers of non-human minds in the mansion. Everyone evacuate to their pre-arranged shelters. X-Men, please report ASAP to Cyclops.

This is not a drill.

Also sent to every Xavier's cell-phone via text.

It is with pleasure that I announce the return to Salem Center of Dr. Leo Samson. For those who have not met him previously, Dr. Samson is a child psychiatrist and social worker who operates from the Salem Center Counselling Services offices. He has spent the past several years working in India and Pakistan, aiding survivors of the Srinagar bombing of 2008, and he has provided assistance to residents of the school on many occasions.

Dr. Samson has indicated to me that his return to the area also indicates a return to his working partnership with the school, and he will be available to provide assistance to those who need it. Referrals can be obtained through myself, Mr. Haller, or the medical team. And remember, we are all available to listen to whatever problems you might have.

Thank you.

Good afternoon, all:

I have a brief announcement concerning Molly Hayes. Due to an incident, she has no memories of the past eight months. This is temporary and she will be working with Ms. Emma Frost, but I ask for your consideration in the meantime. Her mental state is rather fragile and she will need your support. Please keep that in mind in your interactions with her and refrain from bringing up traumatic incidents with her until she is ready.

Thank you.

Greetings, all:

The winter holiday is upon us and I have a suggestion for the students (and those who might wish to attend as chaperones). Gore Mountain is a ski resort in upstate New York. As my holiday gift to you all this year, I have obtained a chalet for a few days, to be made available to the students, staff and guests of the school.

The dates for the proposed trip are December 30 to January 2 - time to travel and settle in and enjoy the slopes and other entertainments available. I hope you will all attend.

Happy Holidays,

Charles Xavier.

I have received word from the West Coast Annex that they will be sending a new student our way. Renee Nguyen will be arriving shortly and will be joining the junior class when school begins. Please make her feel welcome.

Hello, everyone;

As I mentioned last month, graduation was postponed due to external events. However, now things have settled down, I would like to announce that there will be a graduation ceremony for those who completed high school at Xavier's at the end of the academic year, on Friday, August 3, 2012. The graduation ceremony will take place on the grounds at 5:00 p.m., to be followed at 7:00 p.m. by a graduation dance/celebration. Miss Pryor has volunteered her services to be head of the dance committee, and I believe she has some very interesting ideas.

Invitations have been sent to those of you with family who would like to attend, and those with travelling difficulties have been requested to contact me to make arrangements.

I would like to see all of you - students and staff, past and present - in attendance. It is a result of all of you that we can have this celebration at all.

Charles Xavier, Headmaster.

Good morning,

Mr. Rasputin, or Piotr, if you prefer, has asked me to notify you that he will not be immediately returning from the trip to Russia he made following the end of school. He has decided to continue his travels for an unspecified time and wishes all of you the best.

Thank you,

Professor Xavier.

I have tried many ways to write this post, but all of my words keep coming back to one phrase:

Welcome home.

I cannot express my relief and gratitude that you are all home and you are, for the most part, safe and well. I know you have gone through much pain and suffering and I want to let you all know that whatever you need in the way of healing, I hope you can find it here. If not here, then we can find whatever it is you need among our connections. If you need help - when you need help - there are options.

If anything, the events of the past month have proven that we are indeed a family. All of us. A family that supports each other, helps each other, regardless of circumstances or differences or history. We will need that, in the coming days as we work to move on, to recover from the hurts we have suffered. Please, hold onto that.


Now for the practicalities. Primarily, for those with families and commitments needing an explanation for your absence… for the past month the mansion has been under quarantine for a suspected case of Valley River Fever. Fortunately that turned out to be a false alarm and business will resume for the school and the Institute as per normal.

For the students, who missed their finals; your grades for the year will be determined from the year's work, rather than a final exam. There will be no need for summer classes, unless you were previously scheduled for them.

For the seniors, who also missed graduation, we will be holding a graduation ceremony mid-summer, to allow your family and friends to celebrate your completion of high school. Once we have had time to make the arrangements, an announcement will be made.

The kitchen has been completely and fully restocked with pre-made and ready to eat foods as well as the usual supplies. The hot water furnace is also primed and ready to handle the inevitable increase in shower use. And the laundry fairy may have been by and provided a change of linens to all of the beds.

Rest. Recover. Take comfort in your friends and your family. It is so good to have you all back.

Reports are trickling in from Genosha. Our people walked straight into a trap and many of them have been captured. How many and who, I don't know yet. But I do know several of the students who were captured were rescued.

Those who are able, please check in as soon as possible. Regroup at the designated points. And above all, be safe.

Rachel Dayspring was abducted from her family and I have also located her in Genosha.

Our allies, family and friends have been notified that they may be at risk and steps have been taken accordingly.

I have no further details on the condition of those taken, but given their status as hostages, I can only hope that they remain in good health.

We now have a full tally of those who went missing yesterday:

Artie Maddicks
Jean-Paul Baubier
Madelyne Pryor
Callie Betto
Layla Miller
Korvus Rook'shir
Garrison Kane
Fred Dukes
Sooraya Qadir
Sarah Vale
Carmilla Black
Angelo Espinosa
Molly Hayes
Megan Gwynn
Matt Murdock
Amara Aquilla
Adrienne Frost
Meggan Szardos
Yvette Petrovic
Laurie Collins
Marius Laverne

It is also now clear that the abduction of our people from the rally was a deliberate act by the Genoshan government, as an act of retaliation for our actions in to assist Phillip Moreau and Jenny Ransome. For my actions. They know there are a number of pro-mutant organizations connected to the Institute, and that we have some degree of support from the government. They also know Magento was one of the founders of the school. And, finally, they know there is some connection between the Institute and the X-Men.

They know far too much and have apparently drawn the conclusion that the Institute is a training facility for Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants. In their eyes, we are all terrorists and what they have done is justifiable in terms of self-defence.

Their terms are simple; if there is any interference in Genoshan affairs that emanates from the school or our allies, those taken will never be seen again. If we cooperate, they will be slowly returned so long as we continue not to interfere.

This situation impacts us all and there will be numerous discussions regarding what our next step should be. This is the first of those discussions. Please, speak your minds - we are, in this case, all together in this.

Time is of the essence, so I will keep this brief. Using Cerebro, I have determined those students and staff members who disappeared from the rally were in Genosha, before I lost all trace of them. I will continue my efforts, but they have disappeared from detection for now.

I am also currently attempting to contact someone from the Genoshan embassy or one of my contacts there to get information as to why they might have been taken there.

Greetings all:

As you may have noticed, Spring has began making its presence felt. And with Spring comes that most time-honoured of traditions - Spring Cleaning.

The mansion is, as you may have noticed, very old and very large and the vagaries of the last winter have taken their toll. As Mr. Gibney and Mr. Dukes have multiple responsibilities, I have decided to lighten their load by holding an open day, as it were, inviting all residents, past and present, to come along and assist in repainting, replanting, reshingling and all the other tasks that have accumulated throughout the winter. Students that participate will earn credit towards the community service part of the New Mutants program, and we will be offering food and refreshments for all those who attend.

I hope to see you there, new faces and old.

Professor Xavier.
