Principal's Newsletter April-May 2017

Dear Parents, 
I hope you join me in congratulating Mrs. Joyce Coleman.  She has won runner-up in Random House Publisher’s Magic Tree House Educator of the Year Contest!   One winner along with three runners-up were selected from a pool of thousands of applicants. Mrs. Coleman displayed excellence in originality, creativity, and integration of the book series into the curriculum. Stop by first grade to see the larger-than-life sized version of the Magic Tree House, complete with tree and rope ladder!  
On Saturday, April 29, our 7th Grade Academic Teams competed at Queen of Peace High School in a variety of subject areas.  I am very proud to announce that our students were awarded 2nd and 3rd place! Many thanks to our moderator, Mrs. Knapp, who prepared the 20 students who attended this event. 
I hope you had the chance to attend Grade 6 International Day last Wednesday coordinated by Mrs. Conniff. I was very impressed by the student presentations and enjoyed hearing about their costumes. 
Just a reminder, Progress reports for Grades 1-3 will be sent home on Friday, May 5th.  Parents in Grades 4-8 will view Power School online.

Mrs. Leonard and the Spanish Club are preparing the First Friday Liturgy for May 5th.  Keep in mind that the school has early dismissal at 12:15 pm. After Care will be available. 
The HSA has begun selling tickets for the 50/50 Raffle, one of the school's most important fundraisers. I would appreciate if each school family would buy one ticket and sell one ticket. Tickets are $100 each and the grand prize is $25,000!
Mark your calendars for AoOL's Spring Musical on May 4, 5 and 7th. The Wizard of Oz will be a show for all ages. Please see the Green Envelope for details. 
I also hope to see all families at the Annual Fun Fair on Thursday, May 11. The school is closed on Friday, May 12 due to a Diocesan Professional Day for teachers.  You are also invited to the Art Show and Band Concert on May 18
May and June are very busy months at Academy Please check the web site frequently, particularly the Green Envelope and School Calendar. The one page School Calendar for 2017-2018 will be distributed this week. 
Please note that the last day to order Scrip Cards is May 25, 2017. I have been informed by the Diocese that this program will not continue next year. 
Thank you for your continued support as we approach the end of the school year. 
Stephen J. Roberts
