Graduation-  Our 8th grade, Class of 2017, will attend their 8th grade trip to Boys Scouts of America Camp grounds, in Alpine, NJ on June 7th.  This is a full day of activities: arrival at 8AM to SCCA- return to SCCA at approximately 6:00PM.    The dinner dance for Grade 8 and their families will be held on June 14th in Springman Hall.  June 14 is a 12 noon dismissal for grade 8 only.  June 15th there are no classes for grade 8.   On June 16th all graduates will arrive to SCCA at regular line up, in their cap and gowns.  Mass will be at 9AM.  Our graduates will walk the halls one final time after mass.  Graduation ceremony will be at 7PM.  Graduates are to arrive to SCCA by 6:30PM in cap and gown.

Kindergarten “Step Up “ to First Grade will be on Tuesday, June 20th.  The celebration will take place at 9AM in our Academy auditorium/lunchroom.   June 20th is their final day of classes.

Pre K for All will have an End of Year Celebration on Wednesday, June 21st in SCCA auditorium at 9AM.  This will be their final day of classes.

Our final Academy fundraiser is our Walk a Thon/Carnival on Tuesday June 13th.   Permission slips and pledges are due to the main office by June 9th.  Only students whose families are in good financial standing can participate.  Please make sure you have fulfilled your obligations.   Please remember that all students must wear socks!!! In order to play on the inflatable rides.

Half days- 12 noon dismissal for grades 1 to 7 begins on June 21st.  On June 22, 2017 there will be an early dismissal at 11AM following our closing mass and award ceremony.

Finally, our final Home Academy Parent Association Meeting is scheduled for June 19 at 7PM.  As of today, I have only received two nominations for the office of secretary.  It is important that our families attend this meeting and that we have more parents interested in taking on the responsibility of running our HAA.  Our Parent Association is integral to the viability of the academy.  Please consider running for office.   Also, make every effort to attend the HAA June 19th meeting.  Students whose parents attend can dress down June 20 and June 21!

Blessings for a happy summer,       Sheila Smith Gonzalez

May News

May is dedicated to the Blessed Mother.  We will be praying a decade of the rosary each morning for the month of May, please have your child bring in their rosary for Morning Prayer. Congratulations to our 8th graders who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on April 27th, at St. Camillus RC Church.   The second grade and some older students of St. Camillus Catholic Academy will receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on May 13th.

May is a very busy month here at the academy as we near the end of the academic year.

Mandatory Home Academy Association meeting on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 7PM in the church.  Please arrive on time.  Attendance will be taken and N.U.T. cards will be given to all families who attend.  Agenda:    Update from the HAA on our fundraising, cost of educating a child at SCCA, Service hours and participation of families, marketing of the academy, and election of new HAA officers.  The HAA has three officer positions that are up for renewal: President, Vice President and Secretary.  The term of service is two years at SCCA.

Scholastic Book Fair will be held on May 8 to 11th in the lunchroom.  All students are invited to shop, this is a fundraiser for our academy.  It is also a great time to purchase books for summer reading!

Our Spring show will be on May 19th  tickets go on sale on Monday, May 1st  in the academy office.

Annual Science Fair is on May 22 in the academy.  Please come and visit to see our brilliant scientists work!  Viewing and judging will be from 9AM to 11AM and 1PM to 2PM.   Families are invited to stop in also from 3PM to 5PM to see the projects on display.

Please remember to make sure your child is in proper uniform every day for school.  Lateness is a serious problem for some students.  Parents must remember that the high schools ask for attendance on the applications, both public and Catholic.  You will be flagged if your child is late or absent more than 8 times.  This may result in not being accepted into the school of your choice.  It is important all students are on line at 8AM.
