February 8th, 2019

 

Dear Parents, families and the Howard Beach Community,

                Please be advised that there was a letter sent out last night at Saint Camillus Catholic Academy regarding their situation. I received notification from the Diocese of Brooklyn that it was as an oversight that Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy was omitted from the letter. Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy is actively working on recruiting prospect students form Saint Camillus Catholic Academy. In addition, OLGCA will be attending their upcoming school fair on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019.

 

Sincerely,

 

Miss Marybeth McManus

Special thanks to our third grade parents, Mrs. D’Aleo and Mr. Kowalski, and our fourth grade parents, Mr. Michel, Mrs. Lopez, Mrs. Acevedo and Ms. Stanzoni, for their time and dedication to our students and the OLGCA community.
