Two hundred and sixty (260) kids from four Wichita area schools, including Holy Savior Catholic Academy mastered the No Soda Challenge sponsored by Delta Dental Community Care Foundation. The rules were simple: no soda pop for thirty (30) days this past February. The reward for each student that avoided the temptation of having a soda pop, even just one, was a field trip to Exploration Place. Each school had their own special day at Exploration Place including watching a documentary in the Dome theater, exhibits on Aviation and the life of a spy, the infamous castle, and a present for their school picked out by the students.

 

Thank you to Delta Dental Community Care Foundation!

KMC and former Holy Savior Catholic Academy student is using his service hours to provide Holy Savior Catholic Academy students with a tutorial on The Rubik's Cube. The Rubik's Cube has many unknown advantages. Other than being just a neat trick to show off to friends, learning and practicing the Rubik's Cube can help the students develop better hand-eye coordination, pattern recognition, memorization, intuitive/logical thinking, and quicker thinking. The students so far have been into it. Because of the response Thomas Noonan plans to continue after Christmas break. Right now he is teaching a group of only eight students. Thomas believes that there are more students in the school who would greatly improve on the aforementioned skills if they were able to take the class.

 

 

 

On Monday, October 15, 2018 the select HSCA Choir performed with the ARISE choir to sing at the premiere of the Dockum Documentary which will air on KPTS, Channel 8 on October 22.  The premiere was held at the Advanced Learning Library.
