Warthogs vs. Ladybugs and Spaghetti Supper tomorrow!

Tomorrow at 2:15pm, the Warthogs will play the Ladybugs in what seasoned critics are calling the Image 2014-10-23 at 5.52.13 PMmatch-up of the century. Coaching prodigy Eric Zlatos (HFA class of ’10) is pushing his Ladybug team to the limit, hoping to recapture his own glory days on our field. The Warthogs are led by grizzled pragmatist Patrick Spence, who coached last year’s Ladybugs to an undefeated 1-0 season but notoriously clashed with the team’s corporate management, going so far as to demand a stipend while praying before games. Mr. Spence announced over the summer that the Warthogs’ Booster Club President, Pumbaa Clune, had made him a generous offer.

The Ladybugs will be eager to avenge that desertion, much like the citizens of Athens after Alcibiades’ defection to Sparta during the Peloponnesian War. But can their indignation overcome the pinpoint

Come by at 2:15 for the game, or show up for the Spaghetti Supper at 5 to congratulate the victors! Please RSVP to Kathy Dean if you plan to make dinner.

National Yearbook Week!

National Yearbook2

October 6, 2014Proclaimed by Pres. Reagan in 1987: School yearbooks not only chronicle educational achievement and school tradition but are a part of them. For nearly two centuries American students have produced yearbooks to commemorate the accomplishments of the school year and to compose a lasting record, written and pictorial, of campus, classmates, teachers and school staff. In later years, alumni treasure their yearbooks for the memories they hold of times gone by and friends of long ago. The students who compile yearbooks likewise treasure all that the experience can teach them about teamwork and about writing, the graphic arts and business skills. The practical cooperation and specialization that students learn in yearbook production stand them in good stead when they enter college or pursue other opportunities.

Introducing the HFA yearbook staff for the 2014-2015 edition: editor-in-chief Shane McCrum and his editors Amanda Tutts, Amber Westhausen, Abi Clune, Kate Santschi, Monica Kopeck and staff Colette Kosten, Cecilia Belleville, Kiana Skojec, Louis Skojec, Ben Johnson and yearbook teacher Mrs. Matwijec.

“Yearbooks allow all students at HFA to see themselves and their friends in print as a part of the school story and are valuable keepsakes that everyone in the HFA community can hold onto forever. Creating a yearbook is a great way for students to learn important skills such as communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and media literacy. The real-life experience gleaned in yearbook can lead to personal and professional success, no matter what career choice they pursue.” – Mrs. Matwijec

Copies of the HFA yearbook can be ordered by emailing to Mrs. Matwijec at yearbook@holyfamilyacademy.net or through one of our staff.

If anyone (student or parent) has pictures they would like to submit for us to consider, please email them to Mrs. Matwijec.
