Yesterday, we held a special tree planting ceremony in celebration of the upcoming Arbor Day.  Mrs. Ann Mitchell and Fr. Peter, the faculty, student representatives, as well as our entire Academy, welcomed in our midst on a beautiful sunny day, Hillsdale Mayor Michael Sheinfield, Hillsdale Police Chief Sean Smith, Hillsdale Environmental Commission Chairperson, Mr. Fred Rubel, and Mr. Kevin Downes and Ms. Colleen Downes of Downes Tree Service.  

We are grateful to all special friends in our community, and far beyond, who continue to assist us in making our Academy such a wonderful place of human and spiritual growth of our dear students and our families.

Our third graders enjoyed playing outside on this beautiful, sunny day!  They earned an extra recess period as an award for filling up their marble jar.  Great job, third grade!

Looks fabulous!

Yesterday, our SJA faculty, staff, and students attended Mass at St. John the Baptist Church.  Our seventh graders did a wonderful job leading us in the liturgy, and our school choir, led by our fourth graders sang beautifully!

Today was the kickoff of the Art & Gardening Club!
The children planted flowers in pots they decorated themselves, and learned how we start the seedlings in the greenhouse as we wait for the last frost to be over.
They also handmade bird feeders to show how we can help out the animals in our community.
