This week, Villa Academy eighth graders will assemble for the annual Spring Retreat. This is a chance for our students to step out of their busy routine for a full day of reflection, discussion and prayer at Magnuson Park.
The topics and activities planned for the day include a panel of recent Villa alumni, a discussion focused on healthy social decision making with Julie Metzger, a presentation from Officer Kevin O’Neill, and a capstone activity revisiting personal goals set at Leadership Camp. We are also pleased that Father Saur will join us to talk with the students about how their faith will serve them through the transition to high school.
Eighth graders have also been busy preparing activities for the day through their advisories. It promises to be an exciting opportunity to share their thoughts and experiences as a whole before the fast-approaching final days of the school year are upon us.
