Please be sure 
to stay 
Rooted in Christ 
all through the summer and visit Our Lord 
at Mass 
each Sunday 
as a family.


Perhaps even attend a daily Mass or Adoration with your son(s)/daughter(s) and other school families before a day trip or play date.  He longs to see your face! 

If you are travelling during the break you can check www.masstimes.org to see what Mass times are available near you.

School Year 

Some of the many dates to note...

First day of school Gr. 1-8:
Aug 24

This Monday, all students "jumped up" to their  soon-to-be teachers and were given hard copies of their summer work packets. 

Electronic copies of these and the school supply lists for the 2016-2017 school year will soon be found on the school website, check back throughout the summer: www.sfxacushnet.com
No more pencils, no more books!  Thank you for a
GREAT year!  Our students truly had a fantastic  academic, social and spiritual journey through the 2015-2016 school year!  Our final day was spent the way in which we began... with Holy Mass and a fun assembly!  Miss Cournoyer's Upper Grade Chorus performed a few songs, Mrs. Shaughnessy announced all of our summer birthdays, and Mr. Manzi outdid himself creating the end of year video that highlighted all of the faith-filled fun we shared as a school family.  

Please check backpacks, as report cards and IOWA test scores (grades 2-7) went home with students today.  Report cards were also sent via email.  
Please call the school office if you did not receive the end of year report, or if you have any questions.   I am very proud of our students' accomplishments!  S tudents' skills can stay sharp this summer by  completing all summer assignments,  by reading on the beach, by having some fun, and by visiting Our Lord at Holy Mass! 

May God bless each one of you and your families during the summer months, and I  look forward to seeing your beautiful children at the end of August!
