Below please find a link from Bishop Barres in regard to the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance in Fatima. We are asked to pray the rosary daily during the month of May in honor of Our Lady of Fatima and for the promotion of dramatic missionary growth on Long Island. As we rediscover or discover the 1917 Miracle of Our Lady’s Apparitions in Fatima, it is an historical moment and opportunity to rekindle our devotion to Mary in 2017.

EXTRA HELP PROGRAM

Please check your child's teacher's homepage for the days they are providing extra help. All students in grades 1-8 are afforded the opportunity to attend in the morning from 7:30 AM to 7:55 AM. 

Check your child's class' web page for daily homework, tests, projects and due dates for assignments. This communicative vehicle keeps the home/school connection current! 


Please refrain from pulling into the parking lot to drop students off for extra help before 7:30 am. We are having a number of parents coming early and waiting in their cars blocking the staff from entering the lot to park. Please drop your child off by the curb on 4th street or park on 4th street and walk your child to the door. We have had walkers coming to school and having to navigate their way around cars situated under the breezeway.
This has become a safety issue for all students, teachers and staff. 
Thank you
