St. Monica supporters gathered for a night of Motown themed fun on Saturday, April 29. The school’s annual fundraiser included “Shop! In the Name of Love,” a one-of- a-kind auction, dinner, dancing, live Motown hits from the Halpin Family Band and a performance by the SMA Supremes. This year’s Auction Gala honored Ostia Award Winner Mary Kate Zepeda.

“After fourteen years of service, Mary Kate Zepeda has become the embodiment of St. Monica Academy as alma mater, or nurturing mother,” says SMA Headmaster Marguerite Grimm. “Her patient firmness in forming our first and second graders in the virtues of joy, kindness, generosity, tidiness, and diligence has helped create the school culture we now enjoy. It is Miss Zepeda who first introduces catechism by heart, literature read-aloud, poetry recited, and classical music appreciated. Anchored by a profoundly beautiful preparation for First Holy Communion, Miss Zepeda’s primary program has produced a bountiful harvest of students yearning for beauty, hungering for knowledge, and open to God’s graces. Congratulations to our first teacher to receive the Ostia Award!”

St. Monica Academy was founded by local parents in 2001 with 44 students with the mission of educating students in faith, reason and virtue at an affordable cost. The school currently has 248 students and teaches grades 1 through 12 and focuses on liberal arts, writing, critical thinking skills, faith and the arts.

St. Monica Academy is located at 2361 Del Mar Road in Montrose. Call (818) 369-7310 or visit www.stmonicaacademy.com.
