Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Connie Spezia to the faculty of Academy of Our Lady. Mrs. Spezia is teaching 7/8 Language Arts and covering other classes during Mrs. Laura Jones' maternity leave.
Your children have been mindful of the Lenten Season through Religion class lessons, preparing for Reconciliation on April 10 (grades 3-8) and participating in Friday afternoon Stations of the Cross.
Please mark your calendars for AoOL's Living Stations of the Cross presented by our 8th Graders. Thank you to Mrs. Krug for coordinating this impressive presentation each year. All invited:
Thursday, April 6 - Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church - following noon mass (approx. 12:30 pm)
Tuesday, April 11 - St. Catharine Church - 1:15 pm
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for supporting the Msgr. Holmes Tuition Assistance Program through various fundraising endeavors. Mrs. Harris coordinated a fun afternoon of March Madness Basketball. Mrs. Aninos, Mrs. Kingston, Mrs. Roberts and the entire Ladies Night Out committee hosted a fabulous evening on Friday. It's wonderful to see so many friends of the Academy support such a meaningful cause.
I appreciate your taking the time to enroll your children at Academy of Our Lady for 2017-2018. I have extended the Registration deadline until Friday, April 7. At that point, decisions regarding staffing and class sizes will be made. Please call me or stop by this week if you have any questions at all. I also encourage you to visit the classrooms and speak to any teachers about next year. In addition, please help spread the word to your neighbors and friends: we are hosting Spring Tours and Buddy Days on Monday, April 10, Tuesday April 11 and Wednesday April 12.
School will close at 12:15 pm on Holy Thursday (April 13) and reopen on Monday, April 24. Just a reminder that optional Spring Uniforms may be worn starting April 24 (see our website, under Students/Uniforms for information.)
I wish you a Blessed Easter and relaxing Spring Break.
Stephen J. Roberts
