April 6th students, who have angels, from our school went to the Hall of Science to meet their angels. It was a fun night! You can only have an angel if you apply to TADS. The angel assists with your tuition payments and gives your child $1500. The reception is an opportunity for parents and students to meet their individual angel and spend some time with them.
Congratulations Tosin – you did us proud!!!!
Eighteen students from 18 schools in Brooklyn and Queens participated in the Diocesan Math Bee. The first place winner was a 4th grader, the second and third place winners were 5th grade students. Tosin will have another year to study for next year’s Math Bee!
Congratulations to Imani Rogers’ family and Geraldine Zephir’s family! Each won a $500 tuition credit.
The Regional Bee was held at Holy Angels Catholic Academy on April 4th. Tosin represented the academy. He is one of the six participants that will go to the Diocesan Bee on April 11th. In the Regional Bee all participants are from Brooklyn. In the Diocesan Bee, there are participants from Brooklyn and Queens Catholic School. We are truly proud that Tosin has gone this far!

Helping Families Pay Tuition
Lawmakers are expected to enact a state budget by the end of March and, once again, they are considering a program to help families pay for tuition at Catholic elementary and secondary schools. While there is considerable support for the initiative, there are those who strongly oppose offering any support to our tuition-paying families. Please take a moment to urge Governor Cuomo and legislators to help families pay for Catholic school tuition by including Education Tax Credits or a similar program in the enacted state budget. Time is of the essence. Send the editable message below to your legislators. CLICK THE LINK BELOW AND SEND YOUR LETTER!
Report Cards will be given out on Thursday, March 23 from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM and Friday, March 24, from 12:15 PM – 1:15 PM.
On Thursday, March 23, there will be After School and PSW. Parents can pick up their children as well as meet the teachers.
FRIDAY, MARCH 24, 2017 IS A HALF DAY OF SCHOOL FOR GRADES K – 8 NO AFTER SCHOOL OR PSW
If you cannot make either of the above times, please contact your child’s teacher/s to set up an appointment. You can contact teachers by their school emails or in a letter addressed to them. Please do not call the office or send a note to the principal as we do not know each teacher’s schedule.
Some parents have already received a notice stating that their child’s card is in the principal’s office. If you need a morning meeting with Sr. Paulette – call school 718-629-0738 (the 9330 line is still not working) to set up an appointment.
