Happy new year to all of our families!    May 2018 bring you much happiness, health and joy.

Grade 8

The countdown has begun.   Graduation pictures will be taken on January 19th.   Please do not have your hair up in an elaborate “updo” hair style.  You must wear the graduation cap on your forehead, as this is the photo we, the academy, purchase for our graduation composite in your diploma case.  You will take other poses that you may prefer but this is the one we use.   Make sure your nails are clean as one pose has you holding an item. Girls may wear nail polish for this special day.  

Catholic high schools will mail acceptance letters around January 16th !!! Public schools first round notifications are later in the year.

Our faculty will attend the Diocesan Data Day for professional development  on January 12th   there will be no school for the students in grades K to 8.   Enjoy the four day weekend!
