We are proud to share that two of our Alumni, Evan Pinciaro and Michael O'Brien have started a virtual 5k Walk-a-Thon fundraiser for The Saints Academy!
About this fundraiser:
As 2019 alumni of the Saints Academy we initiated this virtual walk. Our goal is to make sure that future students will have the same experiences that we were fortunate enough to have had.
Due to the current pandemic, it is difficult for the school to organize fundraisers, which is why we have started this event. Our hope is that the school can continue to thrive during these uncertain times.
We ask that you join us in this virtual 5k Walk-a-Thon. We encourage the weekend of August 8th and 9th, but participants are welcome to walk anytime before this weekend. If you are not able to join our walk, please consider donating.
We ask participants to wear Saints Academy attire and share pictures of their walk on social media using the hashtag #Saints5k2020.
Thank you for your support.

Genes in Space
We a so very proud to announce that Nina Eisenstein and Lizzy Swanson have successfully completed their Genes In Space Contest Submission. Their research began in January, before this pandemic was even in the news, focusing on the chemical properties of mushrooms as a natural antibiotic. By embracing virtual meetings and document sharing, they were able to brainstorm, and complete their proposal. This contest was optional. They chose to complete their research even though they were dealing wiht the challenges of remote learning . This is a true testament to their love of science, determination and perseverance They were always upbeat, positive, and Mrs. Pomeroy looked forward to their virtual meetings. They are winners in every sense of the meaning. Here is a link to a copy of their experiment for you to enjoy and share. We will keep you posted as to the announcement of winning entries. Excellent work, Lizzy & Nina!
The Saints Academy is dedicated to the health and safety of our students, families, faculty, and staff. Therefore, We have been busy today planning in case of a pending closure. It has just been confirmed by Thomas W. Carroll, Superintendent of Schools for RCAB that all Archdiocesan elementary and high schools will be closed from Monday March 16 through May 4. This end date will be reassessed as time goes on.
We will continue to update you on these matters and will always put the safety of our students first. We thank you for your patience, understanding, and trust as we make our way through this current situation.

Baking for Good!
Grades 4 and 5 participated in the King Arthur Flour Bake for Good program this past week. A baker from King Arthur taught the students how to make bread from scratch. Students used math, science, reading and baking skills to bake delicious bread! Students were given the ingredients and asked to bake over the weekend. Each student made one loaf of bread to bring back into school to be donated and they got to keep a loaf to share with their family! 36 loaves of bread were donated to Haven from Hunger! Great work grades 4 & 5!
Twenty-eight students from the 6th and 7th grade, volunteered to participate in an international STEM contest sponsored by Science Buddies and Fluor Corporation. Working with limited materials their imaginations, and a great deal of enthusiasm, these students successfully engineered a volley ball machine that repeatedly volleyed a ping pong ball over a net. Congratulations for a job well done!

HOW TO APPLY TO A CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL
Each high school will have its own application process, which is now an
online application available on their respective websites. Much of what
we have to do, from the Middle School side of things, has been removed
from the process. You will apply online and then you will be asked for the
names and email addresses of the teachers for recommendations from the
subject matter teachers.
