Last Friday, over 40 of our students gathered to play a charity basketball game where they raised $6300 for Ferncliff Academy! Our children were reminded of the importance of giving back and doing for others. Huge thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Calise for organizing this event and to our parents who are starting this important message at home. We had staff representatives Mr. Lucas, Mr. Molina, and Mrs. Hollywood—coaching, reffing and helping at the event. We are incredibly proud of our students and their interest in making our world a better place!
We began Holy Week by joining as a school community for our Tenebrae Service this morning. We excitedly anticipate the celebration of Jesus’ rising from the dead and remember how He suffered for us.
I encourage all students to keep practicing Math facts and fundamentals on vacation next week. We will take our NYS exams in grades 3-8 on May 1 and 2 when we return.
We wish our Confirmation candidates well as they will receive the Holy Spirit on Sunday, April 28, 2019. Congratulations on taking the next step in your faith, we know you will be guided by the light of the spirit within you.
Happy Easter to you and your families.
