THIS PAGE IS NOT UPDATED COMPLETELY YET. DATES WILL BE SET NEXT TO EACH OF THE KEY EVENTS WHEN THOSE DATES ARE SET IN SEPTEMBER. I WILL EMAIL THE JUNIOR PARENTS WHEN THE PAGE IS UPDATED. THIS WILL GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT THOUGH.
The date for the 2019 Ring Mass is May 1 at 7:00 PM in the Performing Arts Center.
The Junior Ring Mass is a revered tradition at Archmere Academy. Students receive rings as a symbol of their achievement as well as their bond to the Archmere community. They are becoming our school leaders and beginning the final year as students of the Academy.
Ring Mass Timeline

April 10, 2019 – The Ring Mass is Three Weeks Away!!!
A few reminders to juniors who purchased rings or will be attending Ring Mass with an Archmere ring of a family member:
Final payment is due to Jostens ASAP. Students will not receive their rings if there is an outstanding balance due. Jostens has contacted those families that still owe on the ring. Parents can use either one of the emails that Keri Casey from Jostens has sent and make a payment online or they can call the Jostens Call Center at 1-800-567-8367 and make a payment over the telephone.
If you will be using the Archmere Ring of a family alum please bring that ring to the Main Office in an envelope or contained labeled with your name BY APRIL 29.
Attire for Ring Mass
Students are asked to dress appropriately for the Ring Mass. Please remember this is a Catholic Mass and then the Ring Ceremony. Boys must wear a collared shirt, tie, dress pants, belt and dress shoes. Girls must wear a modest dress/skirt and top, or dress slacks. Shoes should be appropriate for mass.
Students will meet in the Student Life Center by 6:30 for check-in. The students will proceed as a class to the theater and will sit as a class during the Mass. Please contact Mr. Nowaczyk if this arrival time is a problem.
