St. Augustine is a close knit school community, a school where you feel the warmth and friendliness before you walk in the door. There is a large stained glass cross, with God’s light shining through the substantial windows. You could almost say that there lingers a family like presence in the halls as you see and hear the smiles and the laughter. In the classroom, the lessons incorporate the Catholic Faith as we progress through our studies. Not only does the school have the influence of faith, but it encourages success, whether it may be in class or in extra-curricular activities. At St. A’s everyone is encouraged to join in on the fun with all the different activities going on.
Together we can improve ourselves as a school, make a difference both at school and in our community, and share a laugh or two along the way. With it being in mid-semester it is guaranteed that the school is going to be busy with all of the different events happening. Currently, the volleyball teams are wrapping up their season. The Sr. High girls went to Zones tournament this past weekend, and the Jr. High Boy’s and Girl’s volleyball teams went to CWAJHAA.
Not only is the school busy with sports, but there are other intriguing events that have been going on just within this month. A week ago there was a boat racing competition that took place at the Aqua Plex. Also the Student Council is preparing for various entertaining activities as we get ready to celebrate the birth of our Saviour. Later in December the Student Council planned a PJ day, Formal Dance, and a Banquet for Sr. High before we are on Christmas break.
We are more than blessed to have students that are so involved in the school community, to ensure that every day ends with a smile. At the pep rally that was on Nov. 20, the Student Council gave a summary of all our successful and enjoyable events that have happened throughout the year, and what interesting events are planned in the future. Also at the Pep rally, students were recognized for part taking in numerous activities, such as Reach for the Top, Kids for Kenya, Operation Christmas Child and volunteering at the school, and for all their hard work. As well as, expressing the impact they have had on the school community by making it a more enjoyable place to be every day.
