A Note from the Head of School
We have finished our first two weeks of school, and our program is running in full swing! Our cross country and volleyball teams began practicing, our school choir had a great turnout, we celebrated our second school Mass, and academic classes are in full gear. It has been wonderful to meet so many of our parents at my morning "Coffee & Conversations with the Head of School". In many ways, life for our students on campus feels back to normal - God is good!
As we prepare to welcome the month of September, we have plans for several events in the coming weeks and months. For our parents and families of enrolled students, we have our fall Curriculum Nights coming this week on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. All grade levels will be available both evenings. More information about Curriculum Night will be sent to parents regarding the planned program for the evenings.

We have two amazing and fun PVO events that will be open to the public and friends of Royal Palm Academy. Our
8th Annual Lilly Pulitzer Fashion Show will be held at the Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort on Friday, November 19, at 11:00 am. Sponsorships are available and tickets are now on sale. If you have any questions, please contact Sherri Waller, our PVO fundraising chair, at We can't wait to see you there!

The second event is our
Annual Family Fall Festival that will be held at Royal Palm Academy on Friday, October 22, from 5-7 pm. This fun-filled evening will have a DJ, ten inflatables for children of all ages, games, and a variety of food trucks. Admission is $20 per person or $100 for a family pass. Please see the flyers at the bottom of this newsletter for more information for both of these PVO events.

Semper Altius!
