Feast of the Baptism of the Lord! This morning we received a reminder that winter is just getting started. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the beautiful snowy scenery from the comfort of your home. Below you will find some information and reminders to help you plan for the days ahead. Be assured of my prayers for you and your family. God bless, Sister Margaret

This month Mr. Jeffries and I will attend a workshop demonstrating Augmented Reality goggles and drones. We want to make sure we have the needed information and technology prior to any purchase for our school. The plan will be to attend workshops on AR, receive trial technology, train teachers, and work with classes prior to making any purchases. This is another exciting endeavor for our boys and St. Aloysius Academy.
March 17 will begin the Middle States Accreditation visit for Saint Aloysius Academy. We will have a team of educators visiting our school and reviewing the documents we have prepared for them. The school community has been preparing for this visit for the past two years. The Chairperson of the evaluation team has asked to meet with the faculty on Wednesday, March 20 at noon, so, we will need to make an adjustment with our school calendar. On Wednesday, March 20th we will have dismissal at 11:30. Lunch will not be served and there will not be extended day. I apologize for any inconvenience this calendar change may cause with your schedule. We count on your prayers as we continue this important process toward reaccreditation.
