Dear Parents of Ave Maria Catholic Academy,

​            Spring is finally here! It is hard to believe that it is the middle of May and only five weeks left before summer vacation. The students and teachers have been working hard and will soon be preparing for Final Exams. The Final Exam schedule is currently posted on the school’s website.

​            I would like to congratulate the second grade class on making the sacrament of First Holy Communion on Saturday, April 29, 2017. Special thanks to Miss Alsheimer and Mrs. Antonino in preparing the students for this special day.  The children did a great job during the ceremony.
