“A HAIRY TALE” by Charlie Lovett
Friday, May 10, 2019
Msgr. Campbell Hall
The supremely bratty Prince Rupert and the equally obnoxious Princess Iphigenia have been exiled to the wild woods of Wychwood and can’t return home until they find true love. But who would love such spoiled brats? Could it be Rapunzel and her brother Bill, trapped in an enchanted tower because they refused to get a haircut? Or perhaps Elton and his sister Ernestine, peasant children who sell all the family’s electronics for a measly five beans that might be magic? With a fairy-tale committee that includes a super-cool big bad wolf and a bumbling fairy godmother making the rules, this romp through the forest of Wychwood is filled with twists and turns. With unforgettable characters like Paprika (the lost Spice Girl) and a pair of paparazzi desperate for a photo of Rapunzel, A Hairy Tale will have you laughing until the curtain falls and everyone (okay, almost everyone) has learned the meaning of true love, true sacrifice, and truly hilarious storytelling.
Admission Donation are greatly appreciated. Light refreshments available before the show.
Dear SFA Families:
As we begin the beautiful month of May dedicated to Mary, we are mindful of the many blessings and graces our children will receive as they celebrate the greatness of God’s love in the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist on May 4, 2019. The school and parish community rejoices with you as you celebrate this special occasion with your children.
HOME ACADEMY MEETING will be on Thursday, May 16th at 6:30 p.m. in Msgr. Campbell Hall. SFACA’s STEM Lab will be open to see from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
On May 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in MCH, Brother Ralph will be presenting an overview of the Academy Strategic Planning process.. We hope that you will make every effort to attend.
On Tuesday & Wednesday, April 9th & 10th during gym classes. SFACA will particpate in a fundriaser for Joseph LaMicela.
Mr. Joseph La Micela and family belong to our SFACA family. Joe is in a fight for his life. At this time he is in need of financial help to continue his on-going treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. Joe is stricken with a life-altering and potentially life-threatening rare condition in which cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks are spontaneously occurring throughout his spine. CSF is the fluid that cushions and supports the brain and spine. Joe has been unable to work for over a year and is facing many more months of debilitating symptoms and excruciating pain.
Joe’s goal is to become “sealed and healed” at Cedars-Sinai and return home to reunite with his family and friends in New York City.
Joe is an avid runner who participates in NYRR club & charity races and the NYC Marathon. SFACA will be devoting 2 days worth of gym classes to NYRR-related activities .
STUDENTS WILL WEAR THEIR NYRR RISING KIDS T-SHIRT with their GYM UNIFORM BOTTOMS to School on their GYM DAY and send in their donations.
We ask that they be as generous as their means allow and thank them for their support!

March was such a busy month here at SFACA that we couldn’t keep up with our posts. Here are some of the happenings that kept us thriving:
After our Mardi Gras Celebration, 1st Penance, 8th Grade Confirmation, and Girl Scout Sunday were over, our 1st and 2nd graders headed over to Lego Land.
Dear SFACA Families,
With the birth of another spring, we look to the outdoors to enjoy the newness of God’s creations. I encourage you to allow your children the wonderful opportunity of playing outdoors and limiting the use of TV, cell phones and computer games.

On Wednesday, March 27th, SFACA will have a Dress Down Event in Green for Childhood Nephrotic Syndrome Awareness. Please be as generous as your means allows.
Please read this message from our Home Academy Association President….
“This cause is close to my heart since my son, George, was first diagnosed at 3, and relapsed at 6. Today he remains in remission, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have bad days. Thankfully he has done well. Every single day is unexpected and we do the best we can.
NephCure Kidney International ® is the only organization committed exclusively to support research seeking the cause of the potentially debilitating kidney disease Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and Nephrotic Syndrome, improve treatment and find a cure. Please visit www.nephcure.org for more information.
Thank you Ms. Stefano, SFACA Staff and all the students and families for your support.”
