Welcome back from our April vacation break! The weather was great- hope you all spent some time in the nice sunshine!
We have many events coming up.
Students in grade 8 have been reading the Shakespearean play “Romeo and Juliet”. They will be watching the play on Monday, April 23, 2012 to enhance their appreciation of this great work of art.
The students in grades 5-8 have been working really hard on their science projects. Please visit the Science fair on Thursday from 6:00-7:00 at St. Patrick Parish Center.
The third grade students will receive training from the Exchange Club of Lawrence to become Junior Police Officers. The progam will begin Friday, April 27, 2012.
The seventh grade students will begin a two day training session entitled “See I Make All Things New”.
Let us hold all of these special events in our prayers so they may bear fruit and help our children live out the spirit of LCA.
Thank you to all of the families who attended the opening of Catholic Schools’ week mass last Sunday. What a great way to begin this special week by praising God for all of the blessings LCA has received.

Thank you to all who helped out in our book store. It was a huge success. Our parent volunteers did a great job promoting a love for reading.
Thank you to all volunteers who helped out with the Christmas Store. The students had a great time shopping for their loved ones. Thank you to Mrs. Denise Bonanno for coordinating this event and to all of the behind the scenes parents who shop all year to get ready for this shopping spree.
On Wednesday, December 14th, Braintree, MA, at a Christmas breakfast held at the Pastoral Center in Braintree, Cardinal Sean O’Malley of the Archdiocese of Boston inducted the second class of Peter S. Lynch Scholars to the Inner City Scholarship Fund of Boston. Makayla Larochelle from 6A and Naleeah Tejeda-Suarez from 4A were among approximately 100 students from across the Greater Boston area who were selected for this program.
Cardinal O’Malley was accompanied by Mr. Lynch; Mike Reardon, Executive Director of the Catholic Schools Foundation; Mary Grassa O’Neill, Superintendent of Boston’s Catholic Schools; and Jack Regan, President of the Catholic Schools Foundation Board of Trustees.
Mr. Lynch, known for his successful career as a money manager at Fidelity Investments, is a longtime supporter of Boston’s Catholic Schools and serves as chairman emeritus for the Catholic Schools Foundation. In his honor, The Foundation has named students from each of their funded Catholic elementary schools to hold the honor of being a Peter Lynch scholar. The distinction pays tribute to Mr. Lynch’s commitment to Catholic education in Boston.
We are really proud of you!!! Keep up the good work!!!!
Congratulations are in order for Tommy Cuddy, grade 2B and Ryan Coughlin, grade 5A for representing LCA as Students of the Month during the Exchange Club luncheon, November 15, 2011. At the luncheon, these students were awarded a certificate and a book and will soon receive a backpack with school supplies.
Tommy and Ryan were chosen because of their sound moral character as well as their strong work ethics. They are the first students who will have their names on a plaque in our school. Keep up the good work of being positive role models for your peers, Tommy and Ryan!
If you are bored and have nothing to do during the Thanksgiving break, check out the Festival of Trees in Methuen and look for our LCA tree. Thanks to the creativity of Mrs. Maureen Loughlin and Mrs. Sheila Amero, our tree has won Third Place in the Conifer Award most creativie/unique category. Come see our trophy near the main office.
Thank you, Mrs. Loughlin and Mrs. Amero for using the talents God has given you to make our school shine!
LCA will host another Scholastic Book Fair next week. This is a good oppunrtunity for families to encourage a love of reading. Classes will be assigned times where they can browse and purchase books. This is also a great time to purchase Christmas gifts and support your school. A portion of the proceeds returns to LCA.
The staff , faculty and students of LCA wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Do not forget to give thanks to God for all of the blessings we receive.
A good opportunity for this would be to attend a Thanksgiving Mass in one of our local parishes. Our Lady of Good Counsel and St. Patrick Parish will be celebrating their Thanksgiving masses at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 23, 2011. St. Mary of the Assumption is celebrating a Thanksgiving Mass on Thursday, November 24, 2011 at 10:00 a.m.
