WIXOM, MI (December 21, 2011) - On Thursday, December 15th, St. Catherine of Siena Academy hosted its First Annual Christmas Party. The event was open to SCA families as well as to those who are considering St. Catherine's as an option for their daughter's high school.

The event was a great success thanks to the help and organization of several SCA moms and staff members. The guests were warmly welcomed by Kathy Tarnacki, St. Catherine's principal. Allie Barsh, a sophomore and member of the first graduating class of SCA, spoke to the attendees, sharing her story of how she came to St. Catherine's and what the school has meant to her. She was followed by her mom, Michelle Barsh, who compared her daughter's choice in high school to finding the piece of the puzzle that had been missing in her family's life.

Everyone who attended commented on the joy apparent in all of SCA's students. Indeed, joy was the tangible feel of the entire evening. From the festive decorations to the food, fun, and carols, St. Catherine's halls were decked with a spirit of Christmas cheer.

At St. Catherine's, we are happy to have begun what we hope will remain a tradition for years to come: a tradition of celebrating Christmas in a fun, family atmosphere!
