A special congratulations to Andreas Ioannou, class 4-315 and Tatiana Markou, class 7-307 who were honored by the DEP at a special ceremony on Thursday, May 24th at the Queens Theater at Flushing Meadow Park. Andreas was named “Water Champion” of the 4th and 5th grade Art category. Tatiana’s slogan and artwork were chosen to be used on DEP material distributed to schools. Congratulations to our artists and to their inspiring teacher, Mrs. Vlachoyannis.
On May 17th our seventh grade dance group was invited by Mrs. Palesty to dance at PS 88 in Ridgewood. Our students were among many other cultural groups that entertained hundreds of people in attendance at the school’s First Annual Unity Fair. Our seventh graders danced beautifully and made us all very proud as they performed three traditional Greek dances.
On Saturday, May 12th we braved the rainy weather and walked for a very worthy cause… the Greek Division of the Ronald McDonald House. Mrs. Tzallas, Mrs. Kakivelis, Mrs. Perdik, Mrs. Chatzidakis and a few young Spyropoulites participated in the Niki Sideris Annual Walk-a-thon in Manhattan. The money raised by the PTA during the Christmas Ornament Drive was donated to the Ronald McDonald House. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to donate $1,600 to this very worthy cause!
