Eight years ago, Mrs. Browne was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Scared she might lose her life, she made a pact with God. If He were to spare her, she would always praise His name. Michelle Powers from NET TV produced this report in October of 2016.
Welcome to St. Athanasius Catholic Academy. Thank you for choosing us for your children’s first academic experience. We are delighted to have this remarkable opportunity to educate your children, your most precious gifts from God. We are so glad that your children are part of our Nursery Family and look forward to getting to know each child as we grow together in God’s love this year. Our Nursery classes will provide each child with a safe and loving learning environment. Each day will be filled with fun and exciting adventures to help your child develop spiritually, academically, and socially. The classes will be exploring many concepts and themes throughout this year and we are excited to begin our journey together.
As we begin there will be an Open House for the Girls on Thursday, September 6th from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M., and for the Boys on Friday, September 7th from 9:00A.M. to 11:00A.M. We look forward to meeting you and your children then. You will also have the opportunity to explore the classroom and meet new friends and their families.
