Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our Campus Ministry members will host a special dinner dance this evening for their parents and grandparents in our gym. Leo’s Grandevous and Schnackenberg’s Restaurants and our good friends Grace Sciancalepore and Joyce and Eugene Flinn, the respective proprietors, are donating dinner and dessert. Engel and Volkers Real Estate and HCA supporter, Denise Pascucci, will supply flowers for the tables, corsages and boutonniere’s for the guests. HCA parents Laura Samuelson will be our photographer and Mrs. Flett will supply the favors. Our students will serve the food and drinks and could not be more excited! I’m sure it will be a special night for our Campus Ministry students to say thank you to their parents and grandparents.
Because the courtyard will be used for the traveling farm on Tuesday, May 23rd students who normally enter school through the courtyard entrance will enter the building through either the main entrance or the gym door entrance. Students in grades K and 1, who usually exit through the courtyard, will be dismissed from the gym.
Also, in recognition of Memorial Day and to support Hoboken’s annual observance of this important day, there will be a special $2 red, white and blue dress down day on Wednesday, 5/24/17. A portion of the money raised will be donated to Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
Students will attend Mass on Ascension Thursday and our second graders will conduct the May Crowning ceremony beginning at 10:00AM in St. Ann Church. This beautiful ceremony will pay tribute to the Blessed Mother and the Mass will be the first time all of our new communicants will receive communion together as a class. It will indeed be a very special day.
Finally, our eighth graders took part in their three-day Washington DC class trip last week and it was spectacular. Not only did our oldest students visit all of our nation’s most cherished buildings, monuments and memorials, but they had a fifty minute meeting with Senator Corey Booker! Following Mass at the National Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on Friday morning, students toured the magnificent structure and learned about the intricate tile work being completed on the interior to the massive dome above the main church and the incredible history of our national cathedral.
Lets have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and take some time to remember all of the brave men and women who gave their lives so we can be free. We are all truly blessed.
