From the Principal's Desk


Dear Parents,

As the season of Lent begins, take time to commit to deepening your faith as a family. Prayer, fasting and giving alms are means of practicing Lent given to us in scripture. Our students will be attending mass with their class on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during Lent. The schedule is listed below.

Today was a great day! Cole Davis from Carson Wentz’s AO1 Foundation visited our school to accept the $1000.00 check raised through the Eighth Grade Solar Food Truck project. This is an example of the interdisciplinary STEAM projects that our school does so well. Channels 3, 6 and 29, and the Daily Local were here to report on the event. So check the news tonight! We facebook lived the event, so check it out when you have time. Pictures of the assembly are also on Instagram.

Some calendar highlights: March 14 is FAMILY MATH NIGHT. Join us for an evening of fun math activities, the invitation is below

March 21, at 6:30pm, the Home & School will host Managing Children’s Anxiety, presented by the Chester County Intermediate Unit. More info will follow from the Home and School. Be on the lookout.

Irish Dance and Culture Camp

Grab your ghillies (or sneakers!) and come learn a jig! Irish Dance and Culture Camp will include an introduction into basic Irish dancing. Stay active this summer and learn individual and team dances and dance to both traditional and pop music! Camp will include arts and crafts projects, including tie-dyeing your own poodle socks! We will explore some tasty Irish treats (rolling your own Irish potatoes) and play fun games. Camp time is 9-12

Ceili Dance Camp

Come and learn a ceili! Ceili dances are traditional Irish team dances. This camp will teach students traditional ceili dances that can be seen performed around the world at Irish events and competitions. In addition to learning ceili dances, this camp will focus on team building skills. Campers will complete activities such as scavenger hunts, hula hoop challenges, and more to foster the skills required to work as a group! If the weather is nice, we will complete some outdoor water challenges! Camp time is 1-4. There will be an option to bring a packed lunch if participating in both camps.
