Mr. Moran, Ms. Utecht, and I were excited about the week, and not because it was a short week! We were excited about the three days of fun during lunch. On Monday, we had a raffle with fun prizes; on Tuesday, a special treat and Easter Egg Hunt with the Easter bunny; and Wednesday an Easter activity with a flash mob. SUA students have been patient, resilient, and hope-filled throughout this pandemic and we want to carefully move into COVID-19 compliant year-end celebrations. This week started the celebrations. We are grateful to the Parents' Club Board for providing the special treats for the week!
On Holy Thursday, our faculty and staff will enjoy a Professional Development Day with One Degree Shift. We will begin our day with a prayer service and end our day with a special boxed lunch provided by the Parents' Club Board. A special thank you to Deanna McKeown and Bridget Fesenmeier for organizing this special treat for our faculty and staff!
Please make note that the Athletic Department and the coaches use the data from FinalForms to email information about summer team training, camps, and conditioning. If your daughter is interested in participating in sports next year, it is important that she selects her sport preferences for 2021-2022. The Athletic Department cannot send you and your daughter information unless we know you are interested in a sport.
Now that spring has arrived, and we are out and about more, please remind your daughter about the following information. Make sure to walk in pairs and remain alert. Although we might have more sunlight, it is ALWAYS important to walk in pairs, focus on your surroundings, and remain vigilant. Additionally, please encourage your daughter to watch where she parks. The City of Cincinnati, and our SUA neighbors, have been monitoring the neighborhood for cars parked illegally. If the City of Cincinnati parking patrol identifies a car parking illegally around the SUA campus, they will ticket it. We have had a couple of students receive tickets over the past several weeks. Remind her, too, not to park near yellow-painted curbs, too close to intersections, or fire hydrants.
As we make our way to Easter and Spring Break, let’s continue to stay vigilant with our mask-wearing, social distancing, and hand washing. COVID-19 vaccinations will be open to people 16 and older beginning Monday, March 29, 2021. With parental or legal guardian consent, individuals ages 16 and 17 will be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, which is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for use under age 18.
Lelia and I wish everyone a blessed Easter and wonderful Easter Break.
