“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Dear Academy Families,

How quickly the first month and a half of school has passed and now we welcome Fall. The
students are settled into their daily school routines and the building is filled with a positive and
nurturing vibe.

The school year has been filled with many exciting activities so far, from a great walk-a-thon to a
wonderful and well attended back to school night. Thank you again to all of you for continuing to
show your support in attending or assisting with Academy events. Our continued success is
largely possible through your efforts. Each day we thank God for His guiding light, which shines
through every individual that is part of our Academy family.

Finally, I would like to encourage you to get involved throughout the year by joining one of the
many H.S.A. committees and activities we have at The Academy. Tonight is our HSA open
meeting at 7 PM in the Parish Hall, where we will answer all of your questions and you get to
learn how to best get involved in the home school association. Please join us!

Important Dates:
* October 23rd – No School for Students, PD Day for Teachers
* October 25th – Progress Reports go home

Our Lady of Peace, pray for us.
