St. Mel’s Catholic Academy has had many wonderful events in the past month. Most importantly, our second grade class received First Penance and our eighth grade class received Confirmation. Both classes prayerfully prepared to receive their new Sacrament, and I was delighted to see the students grow in faith and love of Christ. Congratulations to both classes, and I look forward to First Holy Communion in May.
Our Parent Academy Association was very busy organizing some great events during March. St. Mel’s had its first fundraiser at Panera Bread on March 7th. Families enjoyed a great meal while supporting St. Mel’s Catholic Academy. The PAA also sponsored the green bagel day for St. Patrick’s Day. Students worn green to school, enjoyed home baked cupcakes, and had a green bagel for lunch. The PAA also has some wonderful events planned in April like the Easter Bunny Breakfast on April 8th and Grocery Bingo on April 28th. Thank you to the PAA and everyone who help make our school atmosphere such a positive place.
Students in our 7th grade recently gave their time and helped those less fortunate at the Church on The Hill. Students and families made and served food at the church, and learned how rewarding it is to serve their fellow man. Recently grades 3, 5, and 7 put on performances with the help of Stages on the Sound. This is a program through the Diocese Arts in Residency program, and students created stop animation video, put on a reader’s theater, and even a Shakespeare play! Congratulations to our students for putting on such a wonderful show! Bravo!
As always I thank you, the parents, for all you do to support and help St. Mel’s Catholic Academy. May God continue to bless us and our community.
