Caitlin’s Act of Kindness

One of Villa Academy’s own 6th graders, Caitlin Hendricks, was recognized by Seattle United, a new youth soccer club, for her top raffle ticket sales during a recent scholarship fundraiser. Perhaps more impressive was what Caitlin did with the $250 dollar prize money. Read more

We are so proud to see Caitlin model the same compassion and generosity taught by our founder, Mother Cabrini, and embraced by Villa Academy.

Way to go Caitlin!!

Volleyball registration extended

The deadline for CYO volleyball registrations has been extended to Wednesday January 25th, to account for the missed snow days last week.  All late registrations will incur a $20 late fee.  Students who have not participated in a CYO sport need to complete the Annual CYO forms in addition to the Volleyball Registration Form

CYO volleyball registration is open for girls and boys in grades 5 through 8.

Navigating the Next Steps Toward Kindergarten

P4 and P5 Families are cordially invited to have coffee, treats, and conversation with Lower School Director, Jody Elsner, on either Wednesday, Jan. 25th or Friday, Jan. 27th, at 8:30 am in the parlor.

Our time together will be focused on “Navigating the Next Steps Toward Kindergarten”.

  • What does a kindergarten ready student look like at Villa?
  • How are our current preschool children prepared for kindergarten in the Villa program?
  • What do we look for in students applying to kindergarten who don’t attend our preschool?
  • What assessments does Villa use to measure kindergarten readiness, both for current preschool students and new applicants?  What do those measures show?  How are they used?
  • If Villa is a school that is child centered, and focuses on the “whole child”, how do those two values play out in this process?
  • What if I am not sure if my child is ready for kindergaten?
  • and all those other things you are wondering about!

NO need to RSVP . . . just come!




Food Lifeline’s Repackathon

Villa fourth graders will visit Food Lifeline’s Volunteer Repack Center during the second week of February.  Each class will have the opportunity to volunteer their service for three hours to assist with necessary projects that may include labeling packaged products, inspecting and sorting food donations, or repackaging bulk donated products.

Villa’s partnership with Food Lifeline has been a very rewarding ongoing relationship.  Helping with the organization and dissemination of thousands of pounds of food to those in need is one of many ways students participate in the Cabrinian tradition.

If your family would like to join the effort, consider signing up for Food Lifeline’s Repackathon on February 11th, 2012. The REPACKATHON is a volunteering marathon featuring non-stop music, competitive spirit, and teamwork to get thousands of pounds of food ready for hungry families. Learn more and register at www.REPACKATHON.org.  Create a team or join a team! (Space is limited.)  $25 per person or $250 for a team of 10 – snazzy FLL apron and goodies included!
