Successful Open House...
The Open House at the Academy yesterday was a tremendous success. The hallways were crowded with families here to see the school, and some who had come with a little interest were able to make the decision to enroll their children as students. Our Honors Choir arrived back from the Cathedral, where they had sung for the Mass at 10:00 a.m., and they then presented a brief concert here. What a marvellous group of students they are!
And here's a story from yesterday which is an affirmation of our efforts to educate the whole person: one of our very young students was standing there, listening to the choir. Suddenly he noticed something. He tugged on his mother's hand and said to her, "Those are the guys on the basketball team!"
