ACAAP volunteers getting ready to welcome workshop participants at the check in table

After a 2 year hiatus on ACAAP's in person events which was caused by COVID it was fantastic to have everyone in person. On Thursday October 13, people who work at Catholic elementary and secondary schools from all over New England made their way to College of the Holy Cross in Worcester to learn from and be inspired by each other, the sessions and keynote speaker Christian Cashman. Thank you so much to all of the attendees, session presenters and the volunteers who organized the event. ACAAP is run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to helping Catholic schools succeed. Workshop co-chairs Christopher Merrill and Jim Scholl tirelessly organized the day with help from many others. ACAAP is very grateful that the Fall event is sponsored for many years by long time Business Partners Finalsite, Partners In Mission, Habeeb & Associates Architects and FACTS

A recording of Christian Cashman's keynote as well as all slide decks for each breakout session can be downloaded from ACAAP's website.

ACAAP is proud to shine a light on Catherine Murphy, from East Catholic High School in Manchester, CT. Catherine's School DelayZz app is set to launch live on Apple and Google Play on November 1st! Schools that use her app can automatically adjust alarm clocks for teachers, students and parents when a delayed opening or school closing occurs due to inclement weather. A few extra hours of sleep is the best part of the School DelayZz app!  
Catherine's app has been put through all the tests that app development requires for success! She would love to share her story with you at the ACAAP Conference on October 13th!  
Congratulations, Catherine!

Amy Griffin ACAAP board member

After an interesting couple of years for schools overall, it's safe to say that our Catholic elementary schools have shown an increase in enrollment. During times of uncertainty, families turned to our schools as a place of safety, consistency, and faith. Now what? How do we continue to remind our families why they came to us, and why they should stay? Let's discuss the many areas that we need to consider in developing a plan, and let's be open to sharing any plans you already have in motion! Come prepared to learn, share, and collaborate. Presented by Amy Griffin, Director of Community Engagement for Diocese of Bridgeport Catholic Schools
