Clifford Visited The Academy – Fun Times!

Catholic Schools Week was a fun and action-packed week. We started the national celebration with a family Mass followed by a reception and Open House on Sunday, Jan. 28th. The Scholastic Book Fair also opened for the week with a guest appearance of Clifford the Big Red Dog! Then on Monday students paraded into the gym with their classroom banners for the opening ceremonies of the Blue Ribbon Olympics. The afternoon included volleyball matches with the faculty and middle school students participating. Tuesday hosted a second Open House that was well attended. Wednesday morning all students attended the Jump Rope for the American Heart Association to promote good heart health with our children so they can learn lifelong lessons of daily physical exercise. Thursday the fun continued with "Crazy Blue Hair Day." There was a middle school Spelling Olympics and a special "Grandpersons Day" that included a breakfast, craft and shopping spree at the Book Fair. Finally Friday concluded the week with the closing ceremonies of the Blue Ribbon Olympics where medals were awarded and students were recognized for their accomplishments. Students were also able to wear their "Crazy Socks" that day. Thank you to everyone who helped organize and volunteer at all of these events. God Bless us all and all Catholic Schools across this country.
