STA Open House - JUNE 2015 (4).doc

Today we practiced a lockdown drill with our students. We are committed to providing our students with the most safe environment possible therefore we take practicing these drills very seriously. 

We are guided by one of our parents who has a professional background in homeland security and is currently employed in security measures.

Thank you to all my teachers and the parent volunteers who came today to monitor the procedures. At its conclusion, we discussed their findings and will institute all recommendations to further safeguard the school setting.

The spirit of helping others came shining through as $1210 was collected to help one of our families in their time of need! Thank you everyone for your generosity! We are truly a school family who live their Catholic faith daily!


Helping Others....

One of our families had a serious fire at their home whereby a great deal of damage occurred. Luckily no one was hurt. 

We are having a $1 dress down day on this Friday, May 29th to lend a helping hand to one of our school family members.

Certainly giving more than a dollar is acceptable to help this family!
 
Thank you for your support!

Thanks to the skill and expertise of Mr. Mazzitelli and my wonderful students our spring concert was fabulous!

Whimsy and magical...and all things delightful was the order for the day at our cultural arts show "Goowins Balloonins."
The pictures tell the story of how joyful it is to be a child!

"I object your honor!" was heard throughout the courtroom as my wonderful 7th graders participated in the St. John's University Mock Trial! Thank you boys and girls and Ms. Hogan for your hard work in preparing and trying this case! Bravo!


HAPPY NEWS!

Our School Board, Parents Club and our total dedicated parent population are working towards goals to support and strengthen St. Thomas the Apostle School!

Through their hard work, efforts and commitment towards excellence the decision has been made to have two Kindergarten classes in September.

Thank you Monsignor for your endless dedication for St. Thomas School.

Grandparents Day 2015


Old St. Thomas had a school....e...i....e....i....o!
And at that school he had some duck eggs....e...i...e....i....o!
And with those duck eggs he had some wonderful pre-school children...e....i...e...i...o!
And they will observe and predict and record what changes occur.....e....i....e...i...o!
And when the eggs hatch into ducks we will be so very happy for our new fluffy friends...e...i...e...i...o!




Our 8th graders videoconferenced with students at The King David School in Manchester, England sharing elements of their faith. Thank you Mrs. Conte for your global connections to educators around the world giving our students the opportunity to learn from others and share their knowledge and pride about their Catholicism.

My 8th graders once again are shining bright! Under the guidance of Mrs. Conte they were interviewed on their fine efforts to reach out to others in need through their Religion projects published through the organization "Kids Making a Difference."


WFUV 90.7 Radio Station interviewed the children this week!  Listen Up Everyone! They are featured on their "Strike a Cord Campaign."
