New Bricks 4 Kidz Session

WEDNESDAYS, MARCH 20 - MAY 8

Our next session of after school Lego STEM for Grades K-6 begins on Wednesday. This session is called Laws of Motion and introduces the kids to physics concepts. Sign up here!

Don't Forget to Re-Enroll!

Once a grade reaches 75% re-enrollment for next year, all students in that class will be able to dress down EVERY SINGLE FRIDAY until the end of the year! A couple of classes are getting very close. As we stand now:


PreK: 47%

Kindergarten: 50%

1st Grade: 32%

2nd Grade: 54%

3rd Grade: 47%

4th Grade: 11%

5th Grade: 60%

6th Grade: 33%

7th Grade: 46%


Fill out the re-enrollment form that came home again last week (print one here if you need it), and return with your $150 per family fee, and let's get every class to 75% or higher! At 100%, the class will win a pizza party, so start talking it up to your friends.

Parking Lot Faux Pas

Please remember that during morning drop off, Park Avenue is an EXIT ONLY! Please do not enter through Park Avenue to park and walk your child in. Drop off and pick up entry are both from 181st Street ONLY! You are putting yourself and others in danger when you do not follow our procedures. If you need a review, maps are on our website.

Join Us On Lenten Fridays at 2:00 p.m.

Stations of the Cross will be held every Friday during Lent in Church at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome to join us. Ask your child when it's his or her turn to participate, and be sure to put it on your calendar.

A Good Time was Had By All at the Palace!

Visit our school website for a full list of Palace Supporters, and the Palace Facebook page to see the fun photos from the evening! Late donations are still coming in, but it looks like we will have raised nearly $28k when all is said and done. Can't wait until next year!

Our Students will be Honored at Weekly Mass on March 27
