“Preach the Gospel at all times. If necessary, use words.” - St. Francis of Assisi
With great pleasure and excitement, I welcome all of you to St. Athanasius Catholic Academy! I welcome back our returning students and their families, and extend a special welcome to our students and families who will be new to St. Athanasius this year. The precious days of summer are about to end and the doors to a whole new exciting school year are just about ready to open! I hope all of you got some rest and enjoyed time with our precious children as we look forward to seeing all of them when we re-open on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.
Our teachers have been hard at work this summer planning for the new year. Some improvements at our school include repaving the parking lot, painting of several classrooms, and installing new wiring for improved Internet access throughout the building. We will continue our PreK for All with 3 classes. We will begin our Mommy and Me program very soon. This will be for children from 18 to 30 months (with an adult). Please call us for information.
We thank Monsignor Cassato, our pastor, for always giving us his support and encouragement. His presence in our school provides the children with a special relationship that is so vital to their faith formation in a Catholic school such as ours.
As we begin the new school year, the staff and I want to thank you, once again, for choosing St. Athanasius Catholic Academy for your child. Our dedicated faculty will provide the faith formation you want and the academics your children need. Our goal is to challenge your children intellectually, help them grow socially and spiritually, and guide them toward independent thinking and problem solving. We strive to instill within our students a sense of pride and love of and for our school. Please remember that you are just as important to your children's education as we are. Your children receive the best education when you and our teachers work as a team. It's a parent’s enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspire children to do their best. Together we can achieve wonderful things! I urge you to attend our Parent Meetings. Please mark your calendars for THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 @ 7:00 P.M. for our Fall Parent meetings. All parents/guardians are expected to be present for their child’s grade level meeting. You will have an opportunity to hear from our school board and pastor, to visit the classrooms and meet your child’s teacher to hear about plans for the year.
We currently have an excellent enrollment for our Academy thanks to the consistent efforts of our staff and your support. Word-of-mouth is our best means of advertisement. Feel free to encourage your friends and relatives to visit our school. We have some seats available. Financial aid is available to those who qualify. Please call the office for more information on registration. As always, my door is open to you.
Mrs. Diane M. Competello
