Librarian and Media Specialist Nicole Pennell is proud to unveil the new Villa library website. Mrs. Pennell will be taking over Mrs. Angwin’s spot in the library, as Mrs. Angwin is taking on a new role as the Dean of Students.
Only one current family or teacher may receive credit for bringing in a new family. Multiple coupons will not be accepted. The child/children of the new family must stay in school through the close of the school year to be eligible for the credit. This offer is good only for full-time students who have not attended the Villa in the past two years.
Starting in the 2013-2014 school year, students are required to bring their own school supplies, rather than receiving them from the school as part of tuition cost. Click on the links below to download and print classroom supply lists in PDF format.

On the Sunday before the last day of school, many of our Villa families spent the afternoon at the Fischer Cats game. We’d like to congratulate all the students who went out on the field during the seventh inning stretch to sing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” and show off their Villa pride.
Way to go Abigail Thresher, Michael Thresher, Amelia Haigh, Liam Haigh, Victoria Fox, Brody Disko, Madeleine Brown, Tommy Colarusso, Mason Snow, Ishan Suman, and Jelina Trost!

Students at the Villa will soon be able to better explore the mysteries of microscopic world, thanks to funding from St. Mary’s Bank. The bank provided the Goffstown school with $2,100 for the purchase of digital microscopes for the school’s science program.
“These digital microscopes will provide students with hands-on access to the tools used by real scientists in their everyday investigations,” said Meoghan Cronin, the school’s Grants Committee chair. “Students will be able to observe such things as micro-organisms with higher resolution than is possible with compound microscopes, allowing for greater understanding of how our world works and providing greater opportunities for in-depth student inquiry.”
She added that the accompanying slide sets would allow the school to continue its focus on offering a hands-on science program that is up-to-date, engaging, and academically rigorous.
“These bright young students of today could be the scientists of tomorrow,” said Tom Champagne, St Mary’s Bank Director of Community Outreach. “There is nothing more gratifying than engaging young students in active learning, and we are pleased to be able to support the Villa Augustina in helping students learn more about the world around them.”
