December Principal Message



December 16, 2016

Dear Parents of Ave Maria Catholic Academy,

I hope all of you are coping okay with the frigid temperatures. The students at Ave Maria Catholic Academy are busy working diligently in all of their academics and preparing for our wonderful Christmas Spectacular. This year’s performance features some old time favorite Christmas songs and a special surprise play performed by the students in grades 5-8. If you have not already done so, please send in your payment for tickets to the big event of the year!

It is hard to believe that January is quickly approaching. Classes at Ave Maria Catholic Academy resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2017. On January 11th, 2017, our eighth grade students will begin to receive their acceptance letters from the Catholic High Schools. We wish them lots of luck on an important and moving milestone in their life. On Sunday, January 22nd, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. we will be having a family mass followed by light refreshments in the school gym.  If you have not already had a chance, please check out our new website,

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the faculty of Ave Maria Catholic Academy, I wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. May you have a joyous Christmas filled with Peace, Love, and Prosperity.  Best Wishes for a Healthy and Happy New Year.

Best Wishes,

Miss McManus

A Christmas Blessing

May your Christmas be filled

With beautiful hours

And memories lovely to hold,

To enhance and embellish

The days of your years,

Like angel wings

Sprinkled with gold.

May Christmas spirit,

In all of its joy,

Touch the depths

Of your soul with delight,

Any may blessings in bushels,

Abundant and rich,

Light every path of your life.
