Weekly eNews: January 25, 2018

Dear FIRSTNAME ,

 

Next week, Catholic schools around the country will be celebrating Catholic Schools Week. Activities next week honor this year's theme, "Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed." As part of Catholic Schools Week, our high school students, faculty and staff volunteers will spend the day on Wednesday volunteering at more than 20 organizations throughout Tampa Bay. Students have the opportunity to serve at a number of different organizations including Feeding America, Trinity Cafe, Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Mary Help of Christians, Keeping Tampa Bay Beautiful and more. This day is an important one for the Academy as we take the time to reflect on the charism of the Sisters of the Holy Names and serve others.


Our elementary school students will participate in a variety of activities throughout the week including service projects, buddy activities and games. The week will culminate with Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day on Friday. I can't wait to celebrate this time of community with you and your children. 

 

Sincerely,

Art Raimo
