Dear Parents of Ave Maria Catholic Academy,
I find it hard to believe that I am writing my principal message for the month of November. Time is flying at Ave Maria Catholic Academy, with great things happening every day. The students and teachers are working diligently and have settled into the routine of school. November is a month to remember all the men and women who served our country. The students in nursery through grade two presented a wonderful Veterans Day play on Thursday, November 10th, 2016 to their families and invited veterans. The students sang beautiful patriotic songs about their country. I would like to send a special thanks to State Senate Joseph Addabbo. Jr. for attending the beautiful remembrance play in honor of our veterans.
The new Student Council members have been designated. Congratulations to all of the students who ran for a position and eagerly campaigned the last month. It takes a lot of time and determination to prepare/practice your election speech as well as create your ingenious campaign posters. The newly elected candidates will be inducted at the conclusion of the 8: 30 A.M. mass on November 23, 2016. All parents and family members are welcome to attend.
Thank you to all of the staff members and families who participated in the Cards for a Cause Fundraiser. The fundraiser raised $819, and proceeds will go towards computer and media equipment for the students.
The next few weeks are very busy at AMCA. The first trimester report cards will be held on Wednesday, December 7th, 2016. Information pertaining to parent-teacher conferences will be sent home in the next few weeks.
Thanks so much for your continued support of AMCA and the students we serve. On behalf of the faculty and administration of Ave Maria Catholic Academy, may you and your families be blessed on Thanksgiving and throughout the rest of the year.
