Children’s Academy

Students from St. Peter’s School Visit

Plummeting temperatures and snowy conditions did not deter students from St. Peter’s School from visiting the Children’s Academy on Tuesday, January 29.  They transformed the outside conditions into fun indoor adventures for Children’s Academy students, including sled pulls, ice fishing and snow castle-building.  A huge thank you to St. Peter’s students for coming to play!

Elks Lockport Lodge #41 Sponsor Winter Wonderland

Children’s Academy students enjoyed crafts, games and dancing with Olaf thanks to the generosity of the Elks Lockport Lodge #41.  It was wonderful for our students to get to take a break from learning and celebrate the season without contending with the cold, snow and wind that has been so prevalent lately.  Thank you, Elks Lockport Lodge #41 for enabling us to experience such joy and fun!
