National Catholic Schools Week at St. Anselm Catholic Academy (SACA) began on Sunday, January 27th with the first parish Sunday Social of 2019. Around the McMahon Auditorium, poster-board displays, videos, activities, and a table sponsored by the Alumni Association, highlighted the wonderful educational opportunities and tradition of excellence offered at SACA. Academy Principal, Kevin Flanagan, parents, and students were eager to answer questions and provide tours of the academy. Prospective parents also had the opportunity to register their children.
Events, throughout the week, provided the interested public and parents with an opportunity to learn more about the academy, with different programs occurring daily – a “Young at Heart Valentine Celebration”, an Open House for parents and prospective parents, Sports Day, a Crazy Sock/Dress Down Day, a Luncheon to thank Veterans and First Responders, a “Tea” for the Grandparents of children in grades Pre-K-3 – First Grade, and even a treasure hunt! The week concluded with a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast and, appropriately, the First Friday Mass. Friday evening, activities finished-up with a “Pot Luck Wingo”. What a great way to end a wonderful week!
A heartfelt “thank you” to Principal Kevin Flanagan, the SACA teachers & staff, parents, and the student volunteers for a job well done during this past week and throughout the year! We would also like to thank our Parish Priests: Msgr. Maloney, Msgr. Phillips, Fr. Fred, and Fr. Anthony for their on-going commitment to Catholic Education.

All the best,
