Dear Parents & Guardians:
April is upon us and I would like to share some of the events occurring throughout the month.
First, re-registration is ongoing. The current fee is now $250. Please also be aware that the financial aid process is open and it is critical that you get your applications for financial aid into the application center by the April 21st deadline. Please visit: futuresineducation.org/scholarships for more information.
Our annual Card Party is fast approaching and will be held on Friday, May 12th. Tickets have gone on sale so please contact the school office if interested. This is always a wonderfully fun, well attended event with great prizes to win.
In order to continue our mission of giving to others, we will be having a special dress down day on Wednesday, April 5th to raise money for The Marist Brothers Center at Esopus. This is a camp devoted to working with children with autism. A separate flyer will be sent home with more information.
Our Easter recess begins at 11:30 am dismissal on Wednesday, April 12th. Please be advised that there will be not hot lunch provided on Monday, 4/10 and Tuesday, 4/11 of that week. There also will be no yellow bus service on Wednesday 4/12.
Easter, as we know, is the celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. It is celebrated on Sunday, and marks the end of Holy Week, and the end of Lent. It is the beginning of the Easter season of the liturgical year. Easter represents the fulfillment of God’s promises to mankind, it is the most important holiday on the Christian calendar.
When we return from Easter recess, grades 4, 6, and 8 will be taking the NYS Math tests on May 2, 3, and 4. Faculty, staff, and students have been preparing for the test and we are confident that all students will do their best.
