Dear Parents and Guardians,

February is here!!! It’s a shorter month; still it is busy with events. We celebrate Black History Month this month. The children will continue to learn about the many prominent African Americans who have made outstanding contributions to our society.

Catholic School’s Week began on Jan. 28th and continued until Fri. Feb 2nd. An agenda was sent home highlighting the week’s activities.

On Tuesday Feb. 13th (Fat Tuesday) we will hold a special Red Day at the Academy. For a donation of $2, the students may dress down but they must wear something red (or pink). Wednesday Feb 14th is St. Valentine’s Day but also the beginning of the season of Lent. Students in grades 5-8 will attend mass at 9am in the church and grades K-4 will attend a prayer service at 10:30am in the church. All baptized Catholic students will receive ashes. All students must be in full uniform (no dress down passes allowed or birthday dress down).
