St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Academy is determined by a firm belief that every child can learn and fulfill his/her potential. Rooted in our belief that Christ is our center, we instill in the students that God loves us, accepts us always, and forgives completely. As Christian educators we commit ourselves to live in the spirit of the Gospel and create an environment where students are inspired to grow spiritually, morally, intellectually, personally, and socially. The school community of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Academy encourages equality and a belief in the dignity of every person. All our efforts as Christian educators are based on the conviction that Christ is "the way, the truth, and the life." (John 14:6)
Please read an important announcement from our Guidance Counselor Ms. Barreto.
It’s that time of year again! Holidays quickly approaching and Christmas wish lists are being created by your children. While I am sure that they have been nice throughout the year, I would like to take this opportunity to ask you to check the wish list twice.
Please be mindful of the video games that are available for all popular gaming systems and handheld consoles (PS3, PS4, XBOX360, XBOX1, etc.) Some of these games are inappropriate for young children. They contain violence, foul language and adult content. All games have a content rating symbol on the front cover. This can be very helpful in choosing the age appropriate video game for your child. I hope that the information below helps you to make a safe purchase.
Some popular games that are M rated (mature) 17 year+ include but are not limited to:
Dead Space 2, Mortal Kombat, Medal of Honor, Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Halo, Assassin’s Creed. Also, symbols to look for on cover of the game (if unsure ask a sales representative in the store):
Wishing you and your family a safe, happy, healthy holiday season.
Ms. M. Barreto
