On Friday, May 24th the SACA teachers, faculty, staff and students in Pre-Kindergarten 3 – 8th grade came to school with their orange “Spirit Day 2019” tee shirts on and the excitement was everywhere. After posing for a group photo in the Auditorium, the younger students enjoyed a special day of indoor (movement games) and outdoor (making bubbles and sidewalk chalk creations) activities and then returned to their classrooms to work on a Memorial Day art project.
Meanwhile, students in Kindergarten – 8th grade walked to the St. Anselm Ball Field (located at Fort Hamilton Pkwy and 76th Street) under the supervision of teachers, parent volunteers, crossing guards, and police officers from the NYPD’s 68th Precinct. Once they reached the field, the good times began – a morning of fun and games in celebration of Spirit Day SACA style. Activities included football, volleyball, hula-hoops, tug-of-war, sack races, parachute activities, and dancing to favorites such as “Macarena” and “Cotton Eye Joe” spun by a DJ.
As usual the Home Academy Association members thought of everything including a well-stocked canteen run by parent volunteers which provided water and snacks to quench the thirst and provide a “pick me up” for the active students.
Events such as “Spirit Day” require planning, coordination, and, of course, time. On behalf of all the students, we thank the SACA parents, faculty, administration, staff, the Home Academy Association members, crossing guards and police officers from the 68th precinct for ensuring a safe, exciting day for everyone! We can’t wait for next year!
All the best,
The St. Anselm Publicity Committee
