St. Stans Students Blast Off Into Space!

Once again, three of our students from St. Stan’s were privileged to be the recipients of a week-long scholarship program at NASA’s Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. Two of our eighth graders, Haley Aber and Amanda Piasecki, along with seventh grader, Alex Karniewicz, set off to Space Camp in the middle of July, courtesy of our generous sponsors at Fish and Richardson. While there, they got to experience many of the training activities that astronauts go through when preparing for missions. They performed mock missions, built and set off their own rockets, and many other activities that ensured this experience will never be forgotten.

Once they completed their course, they each graduated on their final day there and received their certificates as official graduates of Space Camp! I am so proud of them!

St. Stans Girl Scout Troop Set To Expand

Thank you to all the Girls Scouts, parents and volunteers who made the launch of Stans Girl Scout troop such a success this year! Our Daisies rounded off the term with a fishing trip to Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Acquarium. There we learned not only about fish, but also turtles and salamanders. We also practiced how to tie a knot and cast a hook. Some of us took home our catch of the day and had a delicious dinner!

We’re building and growing. Next year we will have an active Daisy troop (Kindergarten and First Grade), a Brownie troop (Second Grade and Third Grade) and a combined Junior/Cadette troop (Fourth through Eight Grades).

Please contact Margaret Feliciano or Tatiana Serafin if you’re interested in becoming a Girl Scout or Troop Leader.

   Student members of 4th, 5th, and 6th grades have begun using our new microscopes purchased with funds generously donated by Sr. Dorothea’s late sister Dorothy. Parts of the microscope have been explained and sample specimens have been viewed. It is my hope to have members create their own specimens to view in an upcoming meeting.

      Next meeting date: Tuesday, Oct. 28… Ghouly Hands!

Please support St. Stan’s music program that prepares two music shows per year. This year we already produced North Pole Musical, and we are currently working on own story about our school. More than 200 students ages 3-13 years old will be participating in this musical.  Each student will have a unique costume. A great number of costumes are made by students, parents and teachers from our school. However, we still need money to buy fabric for costumes and  material for preps. We appreciate any donations. Please let us keep our music program strong and make the students happy. 

Americans are celebrating the Polish-style Christmas at the Consulate

To serve Poland – to build Europe – to understand the world

     Americans are celebrating the Polish-style Christmas at the Consulate

  • Surrounded by traditional Christmas decorations and candlelight, New Yorkers got to experience Polish cuisine, as well as enjoyed a performance of traditional Polish Christmas carols.
     The event entitled “A Tribute to Christmas in Poland” was organized by the Consulate in association with the New York chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier. The occasion served to promote Polish cuisine and customs, as many American guests met cuisine Polonaise for the very first time.

    Founded in 1976, Les Dames d’Escoffier is a prestigious international society promoting culinary arts. Their name honors August Escoffier, a distinguished French chef who simplified and revolutionized French recipies.

    Les Dames d’Escoffier unites women from food, hospitality, and wine industries. Their mission is education, advocacy, and philanthropy but also promotion of the European culinary tradition and various cuisines from around the world.

    The Holiday Season gathering was attended by over 120 guests. Among them: restaurant owners, wine connoisseurs, as well as representatives of the hospitality industry and culinary magazines. Diplomats and members of the Polish American community were also present at the Consulate.

    A number of traditional Polish Christmas carols were performed by Polish children from the St. Stanislaw Kostka Student Choir, accompanied by piano, violin, and acoustic guitar.
