We are excited to announce a $10,000 grant received from the St. Alphonsus Education Endowment for a few different projects at All Saints Academy!
First, Miss Ojenus and Mrs. Patterson will be participating in the University of Notre Dame's Program of Inclusive Education (PIE) through the Alliance for Catholic Education. This formation program provides Catholic educators with additional skills to teach and advocate for students who may be struggling. We look forward to seeing Miss Ojenus and Mrs. Patterson help our entire community grow through their experience in this program.
Secondly, the band will be getting new and additional music books. As many know, band is an important part of the experience at All Saints Academy, and these new books will provide an additional enhancement to our program.
Lastly, we are excited to announce a new tradition at ASA, a spring musical! With the aid from a performing arts grant from the Endowment, Mrs. Zarzecki will be directing Moana Jr. this spring! Mrs. Zarzecki has directed over 18 productions, and we are excited to see her next one come alive with our students. All interested 5th through 8th grade students are invited to audition after Thanksgiving break. If any parents have any talents you would like to contribute to the musical, please reach out to Mrs. Zarzecki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you save the date for the performances on May 13th and 14th at West Catholic!
We have been blessed by the St. Alphonsus Education Endowment many times, as they have funded teacher wish lists, classroom Chromecast upgrades, and more! We are excited for the next steps in each of these projects and are beyond grateful for St. Alphonsus' aid in making them happen!
