It’s been a wonderful week for our graduates. Last Saturday, our eighth graders danced the night away at their prom at Zoodohos Peghe. On Monday, they received their caps and gowns, and we held a procession throughout the halls of our school as Pomp and Circumstance played in the background. We celebrated the achievements of our Seniors as they received awards, scholarships, cords and pins on Wednesday at Awards Night. And, on Friday, we held our commencement. Congratulations to this year’s valedictorian, Sophia Verwoert, to our salutatorian, Christina Tsiboukis, and to the entire Class of 2019!
At the Immigration Fair, our fourth graders shared with everyone lots of information about Russian, Italian, Chinese, Irish, German and, of course, Greek immigrants that entered the United States in hopes of finding a better life. Everyone there got to sample foods from these nations. Everything from the Italian meatballs to the German chocolate cake tasted delicious! Congratulations fourth graders, Mrs. Walsh and Mrs. Kostopoulos for a phenomenal job!
Every year, our students become “Water Ambassadors.” William Spyropoulos has once again teamed up with the Department of Environmental Protection to educate people about protecting our most precious resource- water. Thanks to Mrs. Vlachoyannis, our Spyropoulites competed in the 33rd Annual Water Resources Art and Poetry Contest. This year, among 1600 entries from private and public school students in New York, we are proud to announce that William Spyropoulos had three winners. Congratulations to Daphne Kourkoumelis from the 2nd grade, Emilia Sarcona from the 5th grade, and Tatiana Markou from the 8th grade!
