Mrs. Dolan's Weekly Message-April 12, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, April 12, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Academy Families, April 12, 2019

Once again, I am impressed with the many activities at the middle school this week. Our students and teachers have been very busy.

This week our six grade students attended Camp Lakewood in Potosi. This tends to be the highlight of their year and this year was no exception. The weather has been beautiful and the students are exhausted. The students participated in horseback riding; zip lining, geo-caching and a survival hike. Thank you to Mrs. Tavernaro, Ms. Ferrara, Nurse Rita, and Mrs. Berra plus all the teachers who attended camp for a day or two. More importantly we are grateful to our parent for chaperoning all week. We could not offer this excellent experience without your help.

Mr. Sullentrup and our students from the eighth grade Advertising elective visited two advertising agencies on Wednesday. Hot in the Kitchen and Paradowski Creative hosted our students giving them a sense of life working in an advertising agency. The students also learned about their accounts and how the agency goes about servicing them.

Soccer stars Oscar and Sean from the Saint Louis FC were on hand to discuss how they personally became involved in the FC program. They also had magnets, schedules and autographs for the students. It is not too late to order tickets for tomorrow night’s game. https://groupmatics.events/event/Hca

Drs. Brian Peterson and Nina Calloway were in school today helping the students in Middle Medical School dissect and study a sheep’s pluck. The pluck is a combination of the heart, lungs, and venacava of a sheep. The students have been preparing for this day by studying different systems of the body and how they work. Mrs. Hasten works closely with Dr. Peterson and the other medical professionals for this elective.

Next week:

Tuesday: Grandparent’s Mass 8:00 a.m. meet in the cafeteria

Thursday: Student Council presents Live Stations of the Cross 11:00 a. m.

Early dismissal 11:40 a.m.
