Dear St. Augustine Family,
High School Acceptances
This past Friday, the Catholic High Schools sent out their acceptance letters to current eighth graders. I was proud of our eighth grade class when I heard the results of those letters. Here is some of the data that we were able to compile. Our eighth graders received thirty-two acceptance letters from Catholic high schools, (some students received double acceptance letters since they applied to two schools). Of those thirty-two acceptances, twenty-five of the acceptances were into honors programs. The acceptances were as follows: twenty -two to LaSalle Academy, four to Bishop Hendricken, three to St. Raphael Academy, two to BayView, and one to Bishop Feehan. Also, all the students that took the entrance exam to enter Classical High School in Providence were accepted. Two of our students received academic scholarships to the Catholic High Schools – a task which is based on their entrance exam score and not easy to accomplish. Peter LeBeau received a scholarship to Bishop Hendricken, and Joseph Rose received a scholarship to LaSalle Academy.
The success of our soon to be graduating eighth grade class is a testament to the hard work of those students, but also a credit to the work of the teachers that they have been taught by throughout their years at St. Augustine School. These students, some of whom have been here for ten years, make us all very proud.
I was also proud of the eighth graders who served as tour guides this past weekend at our open house. The guests told me they were impressed on how the students represented themselves and their school. They were also glad to hear that the students have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences at St. Augustine School. That personal touch was certainly helpful for us this weekend in representing our school to the public.
Also, both Joshua Greenberg and Stephen Buco, who I watched compete in the Diocesan Spelling Bee at St. Mary’s this Thursday, exhibited an excellent effort by advancing to the later rounds of the bee.
Until next week…
