Dear AQA Families,

On behalf of the entire clergy, faculty and staff of Aquinas Academy, we wish you a fun and restful summer. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents, making memories, working hard and bringing the light of Christ to our every day.

Have a great summer!

Parent Buddies for 2017-2018
Please consider volunteering to be a parent buddy to a new Aquinas Family in the 2017-2018 school year. Buddies are asked to assist new families in getting acquainted with the fabulous events and traditions of our school. To be a parent buddy, please read this
  Parent Buddy flyer   and inquire in the Main Office.

Class Ambassadors
Thanks to the efforts of our Home School Association, Class Ambassadors will be arranged for each homeroom next year. These helpful parents will volunteer to send reminders about all the great events and activities taking place throughout the school year. It’s as simple as sending a group email to class families to offer friendly reminders, and/or being available to answer questions. We intend this initiative to help build community, communication and contribution to our school and students. Please express your interest and serve as a class ambassador for the 2017-2018 school year.

Summer Work Assignments  are now available on the front page of our school website. Supply lists for September will be posted shortly.

The School Calendar for the 2017- 2018 school year will be available on the Aquinas Academy Website by July 1st.


Please contact the Main Office with all of your school needs at (973) 992 –1587.

Thank you,
John Cohrs


Brownie Girl Scout Troop 20743 Update

On Sunday, June 11th, AQA's Brownie Girl Scout Troop 20743 visited ShopRite in Livingston. They learned about making healthy food choices with ShopRite's dietitian, Ms. Elle, went on a scavenger hunt for healthy foods, and even got to try chia seed pudding! Thank you Ms. Elle and ShopRite of Livingston!

On Monday, June 12th, Troop 20743 celebrated the end of the year with a traditional Girl Scout Bridging Ceremony. This ceremony honored the 3rd grade Brownie Girl Scouts as they bridged to Juniors, the next level of Girl Scouting. Congratulations to the 3rd graders on their bridging and to the 2nd graders on completing their first year of Brownie Girl Scouts!
