“I give thanks to my God at every remembrance of you…” -Philippians 1:3
Many, many thanks to Father Robinson, Mrs. Margrey, Mr. Perfetto, Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Sadler, Mrs. Clarkson, Mrs. Johnson, Mr. & Mrs. Richards, our faculty staff, parents, parishioners and to all who helped in any way with the
Liturgy and party on Sunday. If I forgot anyone, I thank you doubly. Every detail of the Mass was planned and celebrated with such joy and beauty! The party was so well-prepared and so much fun. It certainly provided some memories to cherish for a lifetime. It has been a joy and privilege to serve at Augustinian Academy. It is a true gift to be able to stay on and work in the parish. Thanks to each and every one for your many, many kindnesses.
This time of year families begin to register students for the next year. Parents of Augustinian students and the students themselves have always been our school’s best promoters. If you know anyone who lives in our area or will be moving into our area and is looking for a school for their children, please invite them to take a look at Augustinian Academy. Visits may be arranged by calling the office (315-493-1301).
Thanks to Mrs. Schexnayder, Miss Margrey, Mrs. Margrey and Mrs. Carney for the wonderful Social Studies Fair and Science Olympiad. What a joy to watch your students work with our younger students to help them learn so many things! God bless each of you.
Augustinian’s Annual Walk-a-thon brought in $3200 profit for the school. Many thanks to Mrs. Katie Clarkson, Mrs. Alicia Sadler and all their helpers for organizing the Walk-a-thonand to Mr. Jim Sadler for providing the music. Special thanks to Mrs. Nancy Tolley and Mrs. Kelly Lawton and their helpers for preparing lunch for us. What a wonderful day and happy memory!
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!!! St. James Fair is coming June 22 – 24. Volunteers are still needed to sign up to work during the fair, especially on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Please call the school to sign up if you have St. James Fair is our biggest fundraiser and generates close to $30,000. All of this money goes for the school.
The Annual Raffle is a very important source of income for the fair. Raffle tickets are sold in booklets for $15. Booklets were mailed to parishioners earlier this month. It would be a great help if each school family sold one booklet. If any family did not receive a booklet please contact the office and we will send one to you. Please return the completed stubs and $15 to the office. One of our custodians, Ms. Yarka, has sold well over 35 booklets of tickets for us so far. God bless her!
