Welcome back! We hope you had a restful Easter recess! It is hard to believe it is May! On Sunday, Bishop Massa along with Fr. Grippo, Fr. Kareem, and Fr. Sal anointed the Annunciation school and Our Lady of Fatima religious education students with holy chrism. They excitedly took the next step in their faith in receiving the sacrament of Confirmation!

Dear Families, 

        Last Friday’s Walk-A-Thon was a HUGE success! To date, we have raised a little over $27,000. We know there are still donations coming in and we are hoping to reach $30,000 this year!  Walking through the community and seeing our families gathered will be a treasured memory! Special thank you to Jessica Iannelli and Marie York for all of your planning! Thank you to all of our teachers and Mrs. Sinnott for all of your hard work towards making Friday a wonderful experience! Thank you to Michele Scanlon for tallying up our Walk-A-Thon collection over the last few weeks and thank you to Bo DiBuono for donating water for all of our students! What an incredible day had by all!

       We gathered as a full school for the last time at mass yesterday to celebrate Ascension Thursday. We remembered Jesus’ ascension into heaven and the final instructions that He gave to His disciples on this day. Sadly, this is the last time our PreK, K, and Grade 8 students will join us this year for mass—next stop, Graduation!!

       We had a lovely Spring Concert and Art Show yesterday evening. Mr. Bilancia and Ms. Ortiz did a spectacular job. The children worked so hard throughout the year to display their many talents and we are so grateful they were able to share them with us! We’d also like to recognize all of our band students and congratulate them on a job well done!
