Where has the school year gone? It seems like just yesterday we had returned from the long summer break and here we are about to begin another. Even many of the students admit that the year did fly by so it isn’t just us “older” folks who feel that way.
During the month of May, many exciting events took place for our SSKCA students. The third graders received their First Holy Communion, our Drama Club members enjoyed a huge success with their performances of Cinderella, our Aquinas group had a successful presentation at the annual diocesan Aquinas Expo, and Amanda Piasecki in grade 7 represented our school at the annual diocesan Oratorical Contest. The 4th and 7th graders went on a class field trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Many students said it was their very first time visiting these landmarks of our city. For many students the bowling trip that grades K – 8 attended was the highlight of the month.
Our May fundraisers included the monthly Cupcake Sale, hosted by grade K, which raised $230.00. Grade 6 will be hosting our last Cupcake Sale of the school year on Wednesday, June 11th. The National Junior Honor Society raised $855.00 through a special dress down for their Wounded Warrior project. It is wonderful to see our students practice what they are taught regarding caring for others. Our May tuition raffle winners are:
Julia Zera grade 3 Angelika Kuchar grade 5
Julia Kowalczyk grade PK-3 Sarah Obrycki grade 4
Monica Chibowski grade PK-4 Scott Cloonen grade 1
Congratulations to all our winners!
Now for some important June information. Students will have NO school on Monday, June 9th, due to a faculty professional day. Final exams for grades 1 – 7 begin on Friday, June 6th and end on Friday, June 13th. Half days will begin on Wednesday, June 18th. On Thursday, June 19th, we will attend a special end of school year Mass at 9:00 AM. Friday, June 20th, is our last day of school this year and we will have our annual special awards ceremony at 9:00 AM that day in the auditorium after which summer vacation officially begins! Dismissal will be after the awards ceremony at approximately 10:30 AM and parents, as always, are invited to attend both our Mass as well as the awards ceremony.
In closing, I thank our Lord for another successful year here at SSKCA and I ask his blessings on us all as we begin a well earned summer vacation. May He allow us to return safely in September, well rested and recharged for another great year!
I hope to see you at Family Fun Day on June 8th!
