I want to thank all of you who came out last night for our 1st annual State of the Academy. I feel that the presentations by me and the Board of Directors gave those who attended a look at the vision for the future of our school.
Today was uniform measurement day, for those of you who missed this, you can order your new uniform online through Ideal or visit their store on Rockaway Avenue in Valley Stream. The information is on the flyer that was sent home to you. Should you need additional flyers, you can find them in the bookcase outside of Mrs. Nitollo’s office.
Speaking of Mrs. Nitollo….her son Ethan (a Sacred Heart graduate) now attends University at Buffalo and plays tennis for the school. Last week the school won their championship and that earned them the right to play in the NCAA “final four” of tennis! This is an amazing accomplishment for the University and a great experience for Ethan. Their first round of play is in Texas this weekend; I know that you join with me in wishing them luck.
Last Saturday Mrs. Sexton’s class celebrated their First Holy Communion. It was such a beautiful day. I congratulate the readers, the gift bearers, and all the children on a job well done. They were so well prepared, which is a testament to Mrs. Sexton. This weekend Mrs. Marsar’s class makes Communion. We all need to pray to Santa Lucia and hang the rosary outside to keep the rain away.
Sunday we will have a May crowning after the 9:30 Mass, it is a great opportunity to get one more wear out of that Communion dress or suit. Please make every effort to join us at mass.
May 17th is our World Cup final at the park; you all received a permission slip for the event. Please make sure to sign and return the slip. We are in need of parents to stand at the corners and cross- just like Walk-a-thon, so if you can help us, it will be much appreciated.
This week is the Mother’s Day boutique, if your child wants to purchase a gift for mommy, grandma, or that special person in their life, they will go to the boutique with their class.
Family Fun Day is June 2 immediately after school. We are in need of volunteers for the event. Without volunteers, it cannot happen. Please consider helping. Many hands make light work.
Please be sure you are looking on Option C for your child’s grades. The year is quickly coming to a close and if there is an opportunity to make up some missed work, now is the time to do that.
Have a great week, and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the World Cup!!!
