Weekly news & updates

January 28, 2022

Dear SCBA Parents:

We are ready to kick off Catholic Schools Week starting this weekend at our weekend Masses. Please join us at one of the masses, 4:00 pm on Saturday, 8:30 am on Sunday or 11:00 am on Sunday. We want to thank the parish for their support of our school! Without the parish, we would not be the Academy we are! Please have your scholar dress in their dress uniform for the weekend Mass and bring a can of soup to the mass as well. Scholars will be invited up to bring the soup to the altar during the offertory.  

Catholic Schools Week is a great opportunity for us to all celebrate our Academy together! God has blessed us with a wonderful Academy and wonderful teachers and staff. We have so much to be thankful for.

Next Thursday, February 3, 2022, we were scheduled to have our K-5th grade music concert at 7 pm. Mrs. Williams, our music teacher, sent out what she believed would be a reminder email to the parents earlier this week - and we were notified by several families that they never received the first email she sent out about the concert last December to all of you. We are so very sorry for this and we are looking into why this happened. Due to this issue, we have rescheduled the K-5th grade concert to Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 6:30 pm. Scholars should arrive in the Church by 6 pm that evening.

Thank you for being a part of this wonderful community. Your family is important to our Academy and helps make SCBA what it is today. 

With the county numbers at 34% positive with COVID-19, SCBA will remain in masks next week.

Blessings for a wonderful weekend.

Dr. Hopson
