Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break and were able to enjoy time with family and friends. 2020 is off to a great start at The Academy!
Catholic Schools Week will begin on Sunday January 26th. It is a very exciting time in all Catholic schools but especially at The Academy. We have a lot to be proud of and celebrate at The Academy. We have been busy planning interesting activities that will take place during Catholic Schools Week.We will kick-off the school week with a school-wide service project. Other activities will include a faculty vs.8th grade volleyball game, a Geography Bee, school-wide BINGO and the week will end with a talent show. There will be more information to follow.
During the past month the Board and I have been reaching out to all school families, checking in to see how their experience has been so far at The Academy. If you have missed our calls over the holidays please feel free to call me directly or connect with any of the Board members. We really value your feedback.
Today at Mass we continued the celebration of the Christmas season. We learned about the three 'seasons'. marked by Christmas Day (Birth of Jesus), Epiphany (the arrival of The Three Kings) and this coming Sunday by the Baptism of our Lord. The students journeyed around the church to represent The Three Kings journey for their visit to baby Jesus.
We continue to count our blessings for the support of The Academy families.
Middle School is Making Music
On Tuesday The Academy Choral Kids visited Loyola Academy for the Loyola Music Festival. The 5th - 8th grade group, was led by Mrs. Jo Ellen Madden. They joined the Loyola Choral students as well as students from other area schools. They had a wonderful time learning new choral arrangements, singing in large groups and listening to many different performances.
