Dear Parents of Ave Maria Catholic Academy,

It is hard to believe that the first month of school is already behind us. It has been great observing the students transition to a new school year. Thank you for attending Back to School Night to meet your child’s teacher and learn the everyday classroom routines.

The students in grades three through eight have begun the Terra Nova Standardized Exams this week. Although you can’t study for this exam, it is important that the students try their best. These exams measure the student’s reading, language mechanics and math computation skills. The results of this exam will be administered to parents at report card conferences in December.

There are many exciting activities happening in the next few weeks. Some of the activities include:

– Thursday, October 13th, 2016: Field Trip to Green Meadow Farm (Grades K-2)
– Friday, October 14th, 2016: Pink/White $1.00 Dress Down for Breast Cancer Awareness
– Friday, October 21st, 2016: Multicultural Day
– Monday, October 24th, 2016: Winter Uniform Begins
– Friday, October 28th, 2016: Pumpkin Patch
– Saturday, October 29th, 2016: Halloween Dance
– Sunday, October 30th, 2016: Specialized High School Admission Exam

Our three enrichment after school clubs which have already begun, include: Healthy Bites Cooking Class, Paul Effman Band Service and Zumba. The students are having a great time hanging with friends and learning new hobbies after school.

We have expanded our social media network. I am pleased to announce that Ave Maria Catholic Academy is now on Twitter and Instagram. Please follow us @amcahb. In a few weeks we will have a new school website. I will keep you informed when the site is complete and ready to be launched.

Thank you for your continuous support of Ave Maria Catholic Academy.

Best Wishes,

Miss McManus
