8th Grade Adventures
SRLA's 8th Graders had an eventful week as the countdown to graduation begins! The class ventured to American Dream on Tuesday for some fun at the indoor water park.
On Wednesday, 8th Graders had a retreat to mark the end of the year and the end of their time at SRLA. The retreat was led by members of the parish faith formation staff, Jennifer Engelbart, Liz Jessen, Stephanie Miles, and Sr. Sandy. With the theme “The Breath of God in Us,” the day included identity activities, scriptural input, discussion, and a picnic in the sunshine.
SRLA's Principal for the Day
Thanks to Principal for the Day (and most-of-the-time 5th Grader) Alice Lynch, students are enjoying a dress-down/pajama day and an ice cream treat today!
Great job, Principal Lynch!
Celebrating Our First Communicants
With the entire student body on hand, SRLA's 2nd Graders received special recognition at mass on Ascension Thursday in honor of their recently receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion. The mass also celebrated the May Crowning
The class continued the celebration with their families afterward with brunch, very graciously provided by the 1st Grade parents. Congratulations and God bless you, 2nd Graders!
May Crowning
SRLA also celebrated the May Crowning on Monday to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, and to recognize her venerated place in the our faith as Queen of heaven and earth.
