St. Nicholas Academy Fundraiser!


Get ready!  Thursday, September 14th is going to be an incredibly exciting day of fundraising for SNA, our students, and our families through Give For Good Louisville!!  


Many money prizes are awarded by Give For Good throughout the day that day. Last year with your help, we won an extra $1,000 for being the organization with the greatest number of donations made between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. and we also won $1,200 for being amongst the organizations with the greatest number of donations made between 10:00 p.m. and 11:59 p.m!  We want to win these again, along with some other prizes, and be known as the school who doesn’t back down in a competition!  


This is one of two fundraisers this year where participation is required.  Each family must secure a minimum of $100 in donations. Our goal is to raise $24,000 and we know it’s possible!  Start talking to your friends, families, and co-workers!  


It’s as easy as going to their website: on September 14th and choosing to make a donation to St. Nicholas Academy!  St. Nicholas Academy will be offering some fantastic incentives for amounts above and beyond your minimum requirement, so you’ll want to be in on the action!  Details were sent home in your child’s folder last Friday, so be sure to check it out! 




Independence Day!


As tough as it can be at times, now is the time to allow your child to gain some independence by no longer walking them into the school building (Kindergarten on up)!  All car-riding children, with the exception of PreK, should be dropped-off in the car line.  If a child feels unsure of how to get to the cafeteria or their classroom, let them know that they should ask the teacher on duty.  There are students helping during morning traffic duty who can escort your child to where they need to go.


  Pre-K Parents 

For the safety of your child, it is imperative that you cross the parking lot at the crosswalk where the cones are set-up.  A teacher is on duty to direct the traffic to get you and your child safely across the parking lot.  Try to park as close to the crosswalk as possible and walk over to the crosswalk and wait for the teacher to wave you across.  You can then walk through the courtyard and take a left into the building.  Turn right and that hallway will take you to the PreK rooms.      


Need to Go to the Office?

If you need to see someone in the office before 7:55 a.m., please first drop-off your child through the car line (Kindergarten on up) and afterwards park your car in a parking spot close to the Main Office entrance.  Be careful as you cross!  Be sure to have dropped-off your child first!  No parent should cross the parking lot in this area with a child!

I started my last newsletter by stating, “Our God is an awesome God,” in reference to the eclipse last month.  As I sat to write today, the same refrain played out in my mind, but for a different reason.  Almost two weeks ago, we witnessed the terrible destruction wrought by Hurricane Harvey, and many in Florida and Puerto Rico are now preparing for the potential destruction by Hurricane Irma.  And for the past two weeks we have witnessed the awesome works of God through the responses to those in need. Heroic efforts by folks on the ground saved countless lives. Coordinated responses have brought food, clothing, and toiletries to those who have lost everything. And even here, at our little school, we raised over $2,600.00 for Sacred Heart School in Rockport, TX so they can begin to replace all that was lost when the Hurricane made landfall.  Thank you for teaching your children the importance of being the face of God to those in need. Small acts, when done in love, lead to awesome works.





Coupon Card Fundraiser

 There was a great response to the coupon card fundraiser that will help fulfill requests in the classrooms!


Families that sold more than 4 cards had their name go into a drawing for every card over 4 that they sold.  The prize was a $500 gift card and the winner was the Stovall family! Congratulations!


If you were unable to sell your coupon cards, please turn them into the office by Friday, September 8.


If you would like to keep your cards, please send in $30 ($10 per card) by Friday, September 8th.

When you go, you merely need to state that you are there for the St. Nicholas Academy fundraiser.




Middle School Students

Quarter-Zip SNA Fleece Order

A privilege of finally making it to the world of middle school is that students may wear a specific black quarter-zip fleece pullover with the SNA logo as part of their uniform.  These pullovers are very nice and will make a great addition to their wardrobe now that the season is becoming cooler!  If you would like to order this pullover for your middle school student or for yourself, click on this link, print out the form, complete it and turn it into the office with your money by October 1st.  Make checks payable to Shaheens.  If you are unable to print the order form, call the school office (368-8506) and we will send one home with your child.  Shaheens will deliver the pullovers to SNA sometime in October and we will send it home with your child.

Global Poverty


As the website above will tell you, foreign aid is a small part of the federal budget that pays big dividends.  It helps to provide clean water, vaccines, HIV treatment, food and shelter among so many other things to countries that need it.  


The Administration has proposed steep cuts which will devastate those communities at a time when aid is needed more than ever!  Click on this link to read a letter that tells you exactly what you can do to help!
