St. Stans Girl Scouts Rock Robots and Rock Climbling

 On Saturday, March 21st, the Brownies and Cadettes of St. Stans Troop 2832 had two adventures!
The Brownies showed off their robot, Mr. Robi G. Brainy, at the first-ever Girl Scout Robotics Expo.
The Cadettes earned their Adventure Badge by conquering the 35 foot walls at Long Island City Cliffs.  The girls learned how to tie eight knots, safety knots, and the use the technique of belaying so that their fellow Cadettes could repel down the wall once they reached the top!
Congratulations to our Girl Scouts!

March 2015 Letter to Parents

sskcaMarch 10, 2015

Dear Parents,

With spring officially just about a week away, the weather and temperatures are finally beginning to be pleasant and comfortable. The children are excited about soon being able to go outside for recess again after the long winter indoors.

Although February is our shortest month, there were still many events happening at SSKCA. We held our annual Volunteer Appreciation Reception, Student Appreciation Day and Science Fair. Our middle grades Math Bee was held with Victoria Gluszczyszyn in grade 4 becoming our champion. She will represent our school in the diocesan bee this month.

Regarding our ongoing fundraising efforts, we raised a total of $6,852.00 during our annual Walk-a-thon. Caitlyn Goodman in grade 6 raised the highest amount, $1,180.00. Our monthly cupcake sale, hosted by the kindergarten class, raised $385.00. This month’s sale will be on Wednesday, March 25th and the seventh graders will be hosting. Our profit from the adult Valentine/Mardi Gras Dinner/ Dance was $12, 824.00 bringing the grand total from all three dances this year to $46, 972.00! You can see why these dances are our most profitable fundraisers.

I would like to remind you at this time that this coming Friday, March 13th, is a Professional Day for our teachers but students have the day off. This year’s Art Show, scheduled for March 24th, is being rescheduled until April. The exact date will be announced in next month’s update letter. The date for our Spring Show this year is Friday, May 29th, at 7:00 PM.

A few other date reminders include Wednesday, March 18th, are our second trimester Parent/Teacher Conferences. Friday, March 20th, is our annual Talent Show. Sunday, March 22nd, is our annual Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. We invite parents of students in grades 4 – 8 who have not been able to earn service hours this year from student dances to volunteer the morning of the actual breakfast so that the parents of our younger students may enjoy the festivities with their families. Please either send a note to the office or email me if you would be willing to assist at that event.

Due to an unfortunate incident this week where a Social Studies Fair project was damaged by a parent, it is no longer permissible for parents to enter our auditorium in order to get a preview of our students’ work. You will need to wait until the evening of the fair or the next day. Also, our students are not permitted to be in the basement during after school hours if they are not members of our after school program, with the exception of the 2 seventh graders each day who are helping in after school as part of their Christian service in preparation for Confirmation. In addition, children are not permitted in the basement at other times unless supervised by an adult. That includes children who come for Krakowianki.

A reminder, as well, that students were informed in September that if they join an after school club, they are expected to be making a serious commitment. Therefore, if they cannot attend a meeting, they need to give the teacher a note from their parent explaining the absence. Excessive absences and/or not supplying the note will result in no longer being able to participate in the activity.

As the joyous season of Easter draws closer, may the remaining days of Lent serve as an opportunity for us to reflect on our lives and grow closer to our Lord. May Christ’s cross feel lighter by our good deeds so we may be worthy of His sacrifice.

Sincerely,

Mrs. C

Grade 2 Visits the Museum!


The Brooklyn Children’s Museum inspires children to use their imaginations to better understand their environments, cultures, and communities. At the Museum, students explored various plant and animal exhibits, learned about a special folktale, and were engaged through active play by visiting a variety of neighborhood shops from all around the world. It was a very rewarding learning experience for everyone!

 

“Beyond the Bell” Afterschool Program at St. Stans

The after school program at St Stans is amazing! Seventh graders are fulfilling their service requirement by spending time with younger students. Together, they designed the rainbow and pot of gold for our St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

St. Stan’s Receives St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Trust!

 

We are proud to announce that we are the recipient of a grant to benefit the enhancement of our academic programming. The grant will allow us to enrich our academic offerings in the following key areas:

 

In Science, we will be upgrading our science lab and materials as well as hiring a dedicated science lab teacher who will conduct hands-on science experiments across all grade levels. We will also be extending our existing robotics program with the purchase of additional robotics kits. Every student at the Academy will experience the excitement of science coming alive right before their eyes.
In Technology, we will be purchasing new laptops for the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders as well as installing a secure WiFi connection throughout the Academy. Students will be able to use the new laptops for class projects, presentations, and research. And not a moment too soon, we will also be upgrading the infrastructure that supports our Academy website, making it more stable and robust.
In Literacy, we are excited to extend classroom-leveled libraries to grades 3, 4, and 5. Each grade will be receiving a mobile cart filled with books that are a balanced selection of classic titles, with a variety of genres, authors, studies, and content areas. Each collection contains 50% nonfiction in order to expose students to a broad spectrum of books. The libraries are aligned to the common core.
In Language Arts, we will further support the Spanish language program, which was expanded this past September to include all grade levels, with additional learning resources. Spanish is the second most natively spoken language in the world, and our students will have access to additional materials to help them learn a new language.
In Scholarships, we want to ensure that the Academy remains affordable and accessible for all those who want to attend. We will, thus, be offering scholarships to families from our local parishes that belong to the Saint Stan’s Academy cluster.
We are incredibly grateful to the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Trust for their generous donation. Their gift allows us to build upon the strong foundation provided by our dedicated principal, assistant principal, and teachers, further enhancing the educational value for our students

Buddy Day for Catholic School Week!

We celebrated this week with Parent Open House, student Pajama day, our Walk-a-Thon, and Buddy Day! Different grades were given a “buddy” for an activity. Our PreK4 grade worked on snowflakes, and our Grades 3 and 4 worked on a Valentine Victorian Heart Project to learn about the history of this tradition while creating our own! All ages love having a mentor or being a mentor!
 
Science Fair Wizards

Grade 4 students worked diligently to finish their Science Fair Project Boards. The project included researching their topics in school, writing information that was aligned with the “Scientific Method” process, and displaying images and ideas that represented their chosen project. In doing so, the children gained a deeper understanding of the ideas researched, including the areas of Physical Science, Animal Science, and Health/Nutrition.

February 2015 Letter to Parents

sskca

February 4, 2015

Dear Parents,

With the beginning of February, we mark two half-way points. Our school year is half-way over as is the season of winter. I, for one, truly hope that Staten Island Chuck, the local groundhog, is right and we will have an early spring!

Last month, SSKCA was busy as usual. We held 3 very different bees and the winners are:

National Geographic Society Bee (grades 4-8)                        Paul Leszko, grade 8

Scripps National Spelling Bee (grades 5-8)                                    Adrianna Cimino, grade 5

Diocesan Math Bee (grades 6-8)                                                Jessica Dudzinski, grade 6

Congratulations to our winners!

We also celebrated Catholic Schools Week. Although our Students’ Appreciation Day and Science Fair had to be rescheduled due to the unexpected Snow Day, Bishop Chappetto was able to visit our school on Parent Appreciation Day. He toured the school and was quite impressed, especially when the students did an impromptu performance for him of two songs from our Christmas Show.

There was an error in the Christmas Show profit reported in last month’s update letter. The correct amount is $3,932.00. The January Cupcake Sale, hosted by the 4th grade, raised $271.00. The date for this month’s sale is Wednesday, February 25th and it will be hosted by our Kindergarten class. We have the final profit amount from our very successful New Year’s Eve Dinner/Dance fundraiser – $22,630.00! We sincerely thank all those parents who made this event possible, especially those who sacrificed spending time with their families by assisting on the night of the dance itself. It is truly appreciated!

We are in need of lunch parents for grades PK-3 through grade 2. Parents who had, in the past, volunteered at our student dances, may now volunteer for lunch duty in these lower grade classes instead. If you are able to provide this service, please come to school any day of the week that works best for you, at 11:30 AM, and we will let you know what grade needs your assistance that day. Parents in grades 4 – 8 who may be in need of additional service hours may also volunteer to help on Sunday, March 22nd, from 9:30 AM until noon, at the Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. That way, the parents of the younger students will be able to enjoy the morning with their children. Kindly call the office and leave your name with our secretary if you are willing and able to help with that event. Two other opportunities for additional service hours are the Ostatki/Mardi Gras Dinner/Dance on Saturday, February 14th as well as our annual Family Fun Day on Sunday, June 14th.

On Friday, February 6th, our students will be receiving a gift bag with dental hygiene items as part of Dental Health Month’s focus on proper dental care. They are made possible through the generosity of Mrs. Shelley McMahon of Crest, Colgate, Mr. Roman Plikh of Patterson Dental, Dr. Joseph Cimino and Dr. Susan Hoang – Cimino. The packages include toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, rinses, pamphlets and activities (for younger students).

We have had a few parents recently express concern regarding the type of food items available to their children here at school. Kindly remember that parents are encouraged to send healthy snacks and/or lunch to school for their child/children. The food items available in school on a daily basis or during cupcake sales need to be purchased by the students. In addition, the big, soft pretzels available on Mondays and the pizza available on Fridays are optional and need to be preordered by parents. Therefore, if a parent does not want their child to have such items, kindly inform your child and the teacher as well as refrain from sending your child to school with money. The only time food items are offered without being purchased are on days when a fellow student brings in treats to celebrate a birthday or when the class is having a holiday party. If a parent does not want their child to have such treats, the teacher needs to be notified.

For parents of our current 2nd graders, please be advised that First Holy Communion next year will be on Saturday, May 14, 2016, and not on Mother’s Day weekend as is traditional here at SSKCA.

I hope that you and your family will enjoy a wonderful mid-winter recess during President’s Week and that hopefully we will not be seeing much more snow for the remainder of the winter!

Sincerely,

Mrs. C

Counting Principles
Prek-4 worked on a math lesson where each child was given a set of manipulatives. The children were asked to listen for a number, then count out that number of manipulatives. During this lesson, each child was assessed based on whether or not they were able to count out the correct number of manipulatives.
Puppet Tales
For their second Passport to Brooklyn Trip, Grade 2 experienced the magic of Puppetworks on December 16th where they watched two tales by Hans Christian Andersen. Both The Emperor’s New Clothes and The Snow Queen were cleverly performed by marionettes that proved to be comical and enchanting, as well as exciting.
