The Classical School Blog, Week of September 28


Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:


A Message from Joe Fana, Principal of The Classical School

October is upon us!  As we welcomed in Fall last week, I tried to convince myself that it is getting cooler in the morning.  Maybe that is why it is my favorite month.  Actually, it might be because the Cubs are on the verge of making the playoffs again this year.  Maybe the reason I love October so much is because the leaves begin to change to vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds – everywhere north of Florida at least.  Maybe Homecoming, the time where all of our school – past and present – come together celebrating our Royal Nation, is why this season means so much to me.  No matter what the reason, there is much excitement that comes with October – it is truly a season of celebrations and changes.
