AS²A Parent Update                        End of February

 

Dear Parents,

Winter finally struck with fury on Thursday, Friday and Monday- thank you for attending to our phone and email messages closing and delaying school. Our rescheduled PTO meeting will be on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28 at 6:30pm. We will plan the parade float and other spring events. Please come- I will have spring treats for all!

It has been a fantastic February so far! Our Catholic Schools Week events were a great success- author Tom Pilecki praised our STEAM efforts, as did Superintendent Dan Ferris and all of our guests on History Night At The Museum. The attendance was overwhelming that night! The movie day and talent show was enjoyed by all, and our faculty is still glowing from the Oscar winning luncheon efforts! Bravo to all who made this day and the whole week a great memory!

Our service efforts are continuing strong, we are daily focused on reaching out to others. A new effort on CSW was completed by the middle school students, who manned a hot line and called a variety of community volunteers. Their messages of thanks were well received and much appreciated! Throughout the school were smiles on Valentine’s Day, thank you room parents for creating wonderful parties, and thank you to all who supported the Eighth grade’s NYC valentine fundraiser! Thank you to Mrs. Sharlett Stewart, mom of seventh grader Demar, who planned and orchestrated the Hannah Spaghetti dinner on February 13. Her generous efforts allowed teacher Ann Villareal to present over $1600. to Hannah and mom Debbe yesterday at Boston hospital, where Hannah is battling a serious virus. Please pray for her, as Friday is her 14th birthday! We will dress in pink and purple in her honor on Friday, and the town of Portsmouth has declared it the official Hannah Wertens Day!

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, when we return from break. Please join us at the 9am liturgy if you can.

Do you hear The Sound of Music in the air? We thank Ms. Dawn in advance for directing our upcoming May drama production and all the efforts involved to make this another AS²A theatrical success! Bravo to all the student participants who will live the Arts in STEAM these coming months!

Thank you for completing the enrollment forms, we want to be a part of your student’s happy learning next year! Remember the $300. break if a family you recommended mentions you! We are surrounded with love and kindness at All Saints STEAM Academy- enjoy your vacation !
