The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey visited ASCA on Friday, May 13th as part of the Shakespeare LIVE! program. The troupe performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream for grades 5-8, and answered questions from the audience after the performance. The students loved the energetic production, and laughed heartily at the characters’ antics. It was a lovely way to spend a spring afternoon, and many were pleasantly surprised to discover that they enjoy Shakespeare!
On Tuesday May 10th, sixteen 7th Graders represented All Saints Catholic Academy at the Marist Academic Olympics. The team members were AJ Bianciella (Science); Lucia Cantale (English); Matteo Capurso (Computers); Nicholas DePinto (Spelling); Matt Dobronsky (Math); Conor Hennessey (History); Vincent Mattiello (History); Brigid McCabe (Math); Caroline O’Rourke (Science); Matthew Page (General Skills); Landon Paradine (English); Riley Quinn (Art); Joseph Sisolak (Art); Alexandria Taveras (General Skills;) Gregory Van Sant (General Skills); and Jeffrey Van Sant (Spelling).
