Academy Happenings 2/25/17

I hope you and your family had a restful February recess and your children are ready to jump back into their academic studies!!!!

Thank you!!!!! A wise English Christian preacher said, Giving is true loving… I would have to agree with this quote!!!! After tallying the money collected to support Sofia Rabello in her time of need, the Divine Wisdom community will be sending a check to the Rabello family for $7,075.00.

Academy families’ generosity was extremely touching. A very special thank you to Mr. Caballero, father of Arianna in 6th grade. Mr. Caballero and his colleagues at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge
also contributed to the cause and sent in a check for $1000.00, to support this very special initiative.

We pray that God will keep Sofia in the palm of His hand and that our Blessed Mother will wrap Sofia in her loving embrace.

Thank you once again for your generosity to this very special request.
