Dear Parents of Ave Maria Catholic Academy,
I hope everyone is enjoying this mild winter weather. I pray the snow is behind us, and spring will be here soon. We are now in the extraordinary season of Lent. Lent is a unique time of prayer, penance, sacrifice and good works in preparation of the celebration of Easter.
Thank you to everyone that participated in the Pennies for Patients Fundraiser. Your thousands of pennies, bake sale proceeds, and the “Stuck for a Buck” event raised $2852.00 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Special thanks to Miss Amuso, the Pennies for Patients Coordinator and to fifth graders, Charlotte Burridge and Juliet DeCandia who coordinated the Pennies for Patients Bake Sale.
The New York State English Language Arts Exam in grades 4, 6, and 8 will be administered on March 28th, 29th, and 30th. This exam is untimed. The results from this exam are an indicator of your child’s performance and gives feedback to teachers and parents on student’s progress. We wish all of the students taking these exam lots of luck!
Report Card Conferences will be held on Thursday, March 23rd from 12:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m.and 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. Parents will be receiving an appointment sheet to complete and return to schedule a conference session with their teacher. I invite all of the parents to visit the school gym after report card conferences to view the Science Fair projects.
Thank you for continuing to support the “Box Tops for Education Programs.” The proceeds from these programs benefit AMCA and give us the opportunity to purchase educational materials for the students.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the State of the Academy Meeting on Monday, March 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the AMCA Gymnasium.
Our biggest fundraiser, Ladies Night Out, will take place on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at Roma View. This year the Ladies Night out Fundraiser will be celebrating “Sweet 16” years of success. This is a fun-filled night that you don’t want to miss.
