Textbook Assessment and Packing | June 3 & 5

Ms. Behrens needs help assessing the condition of our textbooks and possibly packing them for the move. Volunteers will rate every textbook on a scale from 1-4 and flip through pages, looking for graffiti to flag for further inspection. If work goes quickly, we might begin packing; if not, more volunteer house will be available later in June.

Adults and students with an eye for detail and quick judgment are highly requested! Snacks and music will be provided. Click the link below to sign up!

Please make sure your student brings in the textbook for each of their classes Mon. May 20, Tue. May 21, and Wed., May 22. All students must turn in their textbook before their final exam in each class.

Parents will be contacted if a student does not turn in their book and may be charged if not turned in by Wednesday.

Eighth Grade Graduation | May 30

Families of 8th Graders, mark your calendars for Thu., May 30, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.! Reservations have been made at McGaw Park, Fitchburg, for a celebration to mark the completion of 8th Grade, including a pot luck and a game of kickball. Stay tuned to your e-mail for further details!

Parents of Ambrosians,

This is your friendly reminder that course selection deadline is this Friday, April 12. Course selection can be accessed through your FACTS account under your student’s name.

Rising Freshmen and Sophomores will be choosing their Fine Arts Elective as well as indicating their level in Math and Latin.

Rising Juniors and Seniors will be indicating their level in Math and Latin (if applicable) and whether they would like to be in the Humanities honors sections (if not, they do not have to choose English, Religion, or History; they will automatically be enrolled in the standard sections of those courses). They will also choose a Science course as well as an elective. Juniors and Seniors taking 5 core courses should sign up for two electives; Juniors and Seniors taking 6 core courses should sign up for one elective. If your Junior or Senior is taking 7 core courses, the elective requirement can be waived.

Contact Mary Skemp at mary.skemp@ambroseacademy.org if you have any questions.

Thank you, Mary Skemp, Dean of Students, St. Ambrose Academy

On Monday, April 8, the 11th and 12th grade students will be going to St. Mary’s church, Pine Bluff, to participate in a Traditional Latin Mass for the feast of the Annunciation in connection with their study of the Sacred Liturgy in Religion III.

Students will be dismissed early from their block 3 classes at 1:10pm for immediate departure by school vans.
Mass begins at 1:30pm and ends around 3:00pm. All students will return to school by 3:20pm for end-of-day dismissal. There will be no extra cost for this.

Science Fair | March 27

Due to last Friday’s snow day, the St. Ambrose Science Fair has been rescheduled to TOMORROW, Wed., Mar. 27, from 8:10 – 9:30 a.m. The fair will take place in the basement of 1 Point Place (the building in the office park that is just north of St. Ambrose).

Your students have been working very hard on their projects, and we are very excited to see what they have come up with. All families are invited to attend – we would love to see you there! Please contact Ms. Myers if you have any questions.

Junior High students (6th-8th) have normal school hours this Friday (8:00 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.), though the school day will be filled with sessions on new hobbies, skills, and experiences.

Dress code is SAA Spirit Wear, like what we wear on Wednesdays. Please send students with a lunch as normal.

Thank you to our parent volunteers who have offered to lead these sessions! We’re excited to show you what our students learn.

Life Skills Day

Do you have a neat skill you’d be able to share with the St. Ambrose Junior High students?

On Fri., Jan. 19, the Junior High will have a Life Skills day. We began this tradition last year when the Seniors were on their March for Life field trip to Washington D.C. and the 9th -11th graders went on retreat, and it is a wonderful way for our younger students to learn new skills and hobbies!

We’d like to offer the students an opportunity to learn some wood carving, carpentry, sewing, knitting, decorating cookies, weight training, calligraphy, cord rosary making, etc. but we need your help! Do you have any practical skill that you would be willing to teach students? Students will be in groups of 10, though you can specify if you are able to take 20 at a time.

Please contact Ms. Behrens if you are interested and available! Thank you!
