New School Year Begins!

Last week was our first full week where our entire student body of grades PreK-3 to Grade 8 were getting acquainted with their new teachers, new classmates and new schedules. Robotics and Panther Volleyball are already in action and soon Cross Country and enrichment after school activities will begin too. We welcome new teachers Mrs. Dawn Fiore (PreK-4 AM), Ms. Nicole Radomski (PreK-3) and Mrs. Danielle Mann (Grade 3). There was a lot of excitement and joy and we all look forward to a fun and productive school year. God bless us all!

“Happy 75th Birthday” Our Lady of Peace Church

Middle school students under the direction of art teacher, Mrs. Tyler, worked diligently on a mosaic that they wanted to offer as a gift for Our Lady of Peace's 75th birthday celebration. During the 5 PM Mass on June 10th, 2017, celebrated by Newark's Archbishop Cardinal Joseph Tobin, Academy students Haley and Regan R. presented this beautiful piece of artwork during the Mass. Mr. Scarola finished the piece with a beautiful wooden frame and this artwork can now be viewed in the rectory’s main office area.

Academy Middle Schoolers’ Performance of Aladdin was Fabulous!

Fabulous - is one word that sums up the musical "Aladdin" that our middle school students performed before a packed audience of family and friends in early June. The play was under the direction of The Academy’s music teacher, Mr. Elder and Ms. Joanna Hoty Russell, a distinguished member of the Board of Directors of the Light Opera of New Jersey. The students, directors, and volunteers’ hard work, time and talent surely paid off! Congratulations to you all!
