TUITION ASSISTANCE – DEADLINE 3/31

DON’T MISS OUT!

March 31st is the deadling for returning families to register for scholarships. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come – first-serve basis.

EDUCATION TAX CREDIT – WE NEED YOUR HELP!

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!

Alert, Help with Catholic School Tuition

3/14 NO SCHOOL DUE TO BLIZZARD STELLA!

The Mayor, closed NY City schools at 12 PM this afternoon. Once NY City public schools are closed, we are closed.

Wednesday is uncertain. NY City Schools MAY be open on Wednesday, 3/15, but we may choose to close for the safety of our students and teachers. You will receive an Option C notice letting you know our decision.  Stay warm and safe!

WE HAVE BEEN RECOMMENDED FOR ACCREDITATION!!!

First and foremost, we wish to thank the parents, students, Board member, teachers and staff, who met with the AdvancED team. They have recommended us for full accreditation. Their report and recommendation goes to a Regional Board of AdvancED at the end of March.  Most often, the Regional Board approves what the team has recommended.  Then the Regional Board sends the teams report and recommendations to the National Board of AdvancED at the end of June.  So we do not expect to have full documentation stating that we are accredited until late June or July.

AdvancED Visit is almost here!

We thank all the parents who responded yes to meeting with the Visiting Team.  The meeting will take place on Tuesday, 3/7 from 7:45 AM – 8:15 AM. Your support is very much appreciated!  During the course of the day on 3/7 the team will meet with teachers, students and staff.  They will be in and out of each of the classrooms. Their classrooms visits will last about 20 minutes. On 3/8 they will visit with Sr. Pat and Sr. Paulette, make one more round in classrooms and they work in committee meetings to finalize their review. At the end of the day they will share their findings with us. However, we won’t know if we are Accredited until September!  Pray for us!
