Dress down fundraiser on 3/16 for the people of Ukraine

Families, Faculty, and Staff,

Ukraine, a country known for its beautiful landscapes, and culture, is now the site of an awful war in which many people have lost everything. In an effort to support Ukraine, many of our students have participated in prayer chains, and daily prayers to end the war and protect the people of Ukraine.

Tomorrow SJWCA is hosting two prayer services in which our school community will pray together for Ukraine and its people. Grades 1-4 will attend the prayer service at 12:40 pm and grades 5-8 will join the service at 1:15 pm.

In addition, the central office’s Pontifical Mission Societies, Missio, is collecting donations for a Ukraine Relief Fund. We are encouraging all students, and faculty to dress down in yellow and blue on Wednesday, March 16th to support this fund. Any monies collected on Wednesday will be donated to the Missio Ukraine Relief Fund. Feel free to send in whatever you are comfortable donating with your child on Wednesday or through Venmo @sjwca. We ask that if you use Venmo, please indicate “Ukraine” or simply put their flag in the subject so we know what your donation is for.

Best,
Stephanie Germann

Parade Background: 

The aim of the Parade is to honor the patron of Ireland, St. Patrick, to remember the Battle of Brooklyn and to pay tribute to the Irish for their many significant and historic contributions to our Borough, City, State and Nation. “Faith, Heritage, History, Tribute and Remembrance” became the core of the Parade, highlighting the vast contributions of the Irish to the Church, to the uniformed services, to labor and the law, to public and civic life, to education and healthcare.

The Parade will always be “In Remembrance Of” the Heroes & Victims of 9/11-WTC, the Uniformed Services & All who lost their lives.  There will be a Rededication Ceremony at 12:30 pm at Prospect Park West & 15th Street before the start of the parade.  

The 45th Annual Brooklyn St. Patrick’s Parade honorees come from many walks of life and serve our communities with distinction and honor.

COVID-19 Reminder: Help “Slow the Spread”

COVID-19 Reminder: Help “Slow the Spread”

 

Welcome 2022!

We hope everyone had a healthy Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Catholic Academies and Parish Schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn plan to continue to safely offer “in person” instruction for our school communities.

Until further notice, all Catholic Academies and Parish Schools will continue to follow all the current COVID Safety and Health Guidelines while the COVID Response Team assesses the new CDC and NYS DOH Updated Guidelines released during the Christmas Recess, we await information from Mayor Adams, and we continue to monitor the positive case reporting within our schools.  Updates will be shared with the schools during this time.

We can all help “slow the spread” of COVID-19 by being mindful of the school’s COVID Safety and Health Protocols. With the current Omicron surge it is most important that the administration, faculty, staff, students, and parents please help “slow the spread” by 

  • Staying Home if you are sick
  • Do not come to school if you or a household family member has pending COVID test results
  • Follow the COVID Safety and Health Protocols
  • Consult your healthcare provider regarding COVID testing and vaccines

 

We thank you for your continued support and cooperation in helping to “slow the spread” and keep our school communities healthy and safe.
