Annual Pumpkin Sale

We will be continuing our tradition of selling hand-painted pumpkins at our annual pumpkin sale.  We will only be selling pumpkins this year.  No candy or other goodies will be sold.  

In order to do this safely, and keep everyone socially distant, the sale will be done AFTER SCHOOL according to the following 3-day schedule:

October 20 – Grades Nursery to 2

October 21 – Grades 3 to 5

October 22 – Grades 6 to 8

Tables will be set up in front of the cafeteria windows on 158th St. for you to purchase your pumpkins.  We ask that you please keep socially distant while waiting online to make your purchase.

Call to Action!

This week the Mayor and the Governor decided to close down all schools in certain zip code areas. We need to continue to be vigilant in order to keep our school open and safe. It is imperative that we all wear masks especially on school property, keep your child home if he/she is sick, and fill out the daily health form.

Following is link to a letter from the Superintendent requesting that we contact the Mayor’s, Governor’s, and our elected officials’ offices to express discontent about the shutting down of private schools that have been compliant and safe. We urge you to take action!  Read letter from Superintendent

This message is being delivered to both the New York and Brooklyn/Queens diocese schools, as we are brothers and sisters and part of the greater New York Catholic school community who may very well see these issues arise in your region.

We ask that you utilize the links provided to reach as many elected officials as possible.

Thank you for your continuous support!

Please call Governor Cuomo directly 1-518-474-8390 and Mayor de Blasio at 212-788-3000.

Back-to-School Prayer

God of wisdom and might,
we praise you for the wonder of our being,
for mind, body and spirit.

Be with our children as they begin
a new school year.

Bless them and their teachers and staff.

Give the strength and grace as their bodies grow;
wisdom and knowledge to their minds
as they search for understanding;
and peace and zeal to their hearts.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
