Saint Nicholas Academy Participating in Sam Swope JA BizTown
On Monday, March 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saint Nicholas Academy fifth-grade students will begin the education component in preparation for Junior Achievement’s BizTown. This will take place at the 5501 New Cut Road campus in the school library. Students will concentrate on the fifteen businesses that operate in BizTown, including a bank, city hall, delivery center, newspaper, radio station, realty office, restaurant and three retail stores. These classroom lessons prepare students for one day of running a real town as an employee, citizen, producer and consumer. Each student plays an important role in one of 15 shops located in BizTown, such as a storeowner, accountant, utility worker, newspaper reporter or CEO. Sixty-one students from St. Nicholas are participating in this Junior Achievement program.
Saint Nicholas Academy Celebrating Lent
On Friday, March 26, students from Saint Nicholas Academy (5501 New Cut Road and 4335 Hazelwood Road campuses) will be saying the Stations of the Cross at St. Michael’s Cemetery, 1153 Charles Street, from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
During the season of Lent, students at St. Nicholas regularly participate in the Stations of the Cross. During this prayer experience, which commemorates stops along Jesus’ journey from Pilate’s court to his death on the cross and placement in the tomb, seventh-grade students are paired with second-grade students, and eighth-grade students are paired with kindergarten students. This pairing helps the young students by giving them the individual guidance and attention needed to make the prayer experience meaningful and pleasant. Prayer and service are important components of the religion curriculum and are emphasized during Lent. Saint Nicholas Academy is dedicating the month of March to service to the elderly.
