A nice break between exams, this morning's solar eclipse brought excitement to students, faculty, and staff alike.

This year’s Family Night Songfest was one marked by comaraderie, sportsmanship, and cougar pride.  The night began with a prayer service centered on family values, complete with the Responding to the Spirit of Mercy Club’s rendition of “Do Re Mi” from The Sound of Music.  Later, the Freshmen told their “Freshmen Fairytale” about their transition into high school with “A Whole New World” from Aladdin, “Let It Go” from Frozen, and “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella.  The Sophomore Class  ventured out to space on “Apollo ’18,” singing “Hello” by Adele and the Little Einsteins theme song.  The “Jupiter Juniors” taught a crash-landed group of humans how to do the Hoedown Throwdown and sang about chalikilis and lumpia in a parody of Neon Tree’s “Animal.”  Finally, the Class of 2016 performed their “Survival of the Seniors,” which illustrated the road to graduation, with Pat Benatar’s “We Belong,” Anna Kendrick’s “Cup Song,” and OneRepublic’s “I Lived.”

Following some student performances, including group dances and a solo singing performance, the emcees announced the winners. Each class received either first or second place in a given category, and the Senior Class of 2016 received First Place Overall with the Freshmen Class of 2019 as First Runner-Up.  All classes put on a great show, but most notable was their unnerving encouragement and support of each other, which was evident with the constant cheering and chanting for each of the classes.

We would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Songfest a success – all those who volunteered, performed, and attended, most especially Mrs. Castillo, who headed the project.

The Academy of Our Lady of Guam continues to be blessed with giving alumnae who want to help make a difference in the lives of Academy students. Young women who call Academy home during their high school years become part of the "sisterhood" and the Academy Legacy. The school is tremendously grateful for the generous alumnae donors who continue to give to help their "sisters" at the Academy obtain a college preparatory Catholic secondary education. This growing number of alumnae donors is truly exemplary of Catherine McAuley’s mission to help educate women and children. Recently, the school received scholarships from the Malilay and Ecube daughters all of whom are alumnae of the school.
