Merry Christmas!

Dear Parents of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy,

            It is hard to believe that Christmas is only a few days away, where did the time go? The students at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy are busy working thoroughly in all of their academics and preparing for our wonderful Christmas Spectacular. I would like to thank all of the families who attended Brunch with Santa on Sunday, December 16, 2018. It was a beautiful, fun -filled event for the children. The atmosphere was amazing with everyone smiling and having a great time. The children were especially excited with the surprise visits from Santa Claus, the Grinch, and friends. I would like to send out a special thank you to Mrs. Napolitano, your hard work, endless hours preparing, and dedication on making this event amazing was evident in all of the smiling children and families. Thank you to all of Santa’s elves, Miss Dana, Mrs. DeCandia and the families of OLGCA for all of your assistance preparing for this event and volunteering to help on the day of the event. Thank you to Senator Joseph Addabbo, the Kiwanis Club, and all the different venues who donated their time and support in this wonderful day.

         I am looking forward to seeing all of the OLGCA families at our Christmas Spectacular this Thursday, December 20th, 2018. This year’s performance features wonderful holiday and Christmas songs from around the years and a special surprise play performed by the students in grades 5-8.The students and staff of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy has been working extremely hard preparing for the show. There is a large attendance expected at both the morning and evening shows. The morning show consists of the students from nursery through grade eight. The night show consists of the Pre-K for All through grade eight students.  Their hard work and talent truly will shine during the performance. All of the students in grades Pre-K for All through grade eight are expected to be at the night show and perform with the OLGCA students. Please be courteous throughout the show for all of the performers.

         It is hard to believe that January is quickly approaching. Classes at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy resume on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. On January 16th, 2019, our eighth grade students will begin to receive their acceptance letters from the Catholic High Schools. We wish them lots of luck on an important and moving milestone in their lives. Sunday, January 27th, 2019, will begin Catholic Schools Week with the celebration of mass at 12:00 p.m., followed by our Open House from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. Please continue to spread the word about our fantastic school.
