Dear Academy Families, Friends and Supporters of ASB
We are off to a GREAT start! Thank you for a great first two weeks of school. The start of the school year always bings its own set of challenges let alone the challenges of still managing a pandemic. I appreciate all your support and feedback as we all work together to provide a safe, faith based and educationally sound learning environment for our students.
Please mark your calendar for Wednesday, September 22 @ 6:30 pm in Saunders Hall
The 21-22 State of the School and Open House.
6:30-7:00 pm- Principal Welcome and Presentation
7:00-8:00 pm- Open House (4) 15 minute sessions to visit classrooms
I am pleased to announce that we are continuing our partnership with Baldwin Wallace University. We will have 2 teaching candidates completing their licensure in our building. One candidate will be in Preschool and the other candidate with be in Middle School ELA and Literature. I also have a new academic partnership to share with you regarding Kent State University. Jeanne Schmidt our new Speech and Language Pathologist will have a Speech Pathologist candidate with her. Our students will be blessed with additional talent in their classroom and speech intervention classes.
I would like to give a big SHOUTOUT to our new Music teacher, Ms. Westphal. Ms. Westphal held a band night for our students that was a resounding success. Another partnership that I would like to share with you is with Holy Family Catholic School in Parma. We will be participating in joint Band concerts and potentially in the future, plays and musicals.
After school clubs are starting soon: Robotics, Robotics Jr., Art Club and Band Club. More details to come!
A lot of exciting events and partnerships are taking place!
On September 8th at Mass we celebrated the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The theme of Father Len's homily was "YES!" Mary's YES changed the world!
May God bless you and keep you.
God Bless You,
Chrystal L. Manos, Principal
