March is the liturgical season of Lent, the beginning of Easter, and the start of Spring! It is a time for us to reflect and renew. It is the time for our second trimester to end and report card conferences. We are very busy at St Camillus Catholic Academy. We have our St Patrick’s Parade, our annual chocolate sale, Rite of Reconciliation for our children preparing for sacraments… Please refer to the academy calendar for all of our events. Please remember each child (up to two children) is required to sell a box of chocolate.
STEM Science Fair: We have scheduled our annual Science Fair for March 27th. This will be our first year to focus on STEM design and inventions instead of conducting an experiment. Parents are welcome to come by and visit with us to see our “Scientists at work”.
Service Hours: We have many opportunities coming up…march with St Camillus at Rockaway’s St Patrick Parade on March 3rd . Bring giveaways to hand out to the crowd and earn service hours. Sell our April Showers of Cash raffle tickets after mass and earn hours. Or join our Golf Committee-first meeting is March 5th at 7pm Remember families are expected to serve the academy- minimum of 25 hours each year or be charged $250.00 fee.
Report Card Conferences: Parents will receive an appointment sheet to complete and return to schedule conference session with the homeroom teacher. Families of SCCA who are behind in their tuition will not be allowed to meet with teachers. The teacher will send home the time for the conference on March 19th.
God bless the students who will receive the sacrament of Reconciliation at St. Camillus on March 24th.
