4th & 5th Graders Visit Sisters in Amityville

Last Friday our 4th and 5th graders visited the retired sisters of St. Dominic at their mother house in Amityville.  The students attended Mass with the sisters in their chapel, were given a tour of the original mother house which dates back to the 1800s, and then visited and did a craft with the sisters.  The sisters were so happy to spend time with our students and the students enjoyed helping the sisters with their craft and getting to know a little about them!

This was the first of several visits the students will make to Amityville this year and in between they will correspond with the sisters.  We are looking forward to making some special friendships and can’t wait to return.

Are you Squiding Me?

Thank you to Dorian Colucci Mecir, former parent of St. Mel’s Catholic Academy and owner of Dorian Seafood Market, for hosting the “Are You Squidding Me ?” squid dissection lab with our 4th & 5th graders! They had a fabulous science lab with lots of enthusiastic participants. Their favorite parts were writing their name in squid ink and eyeball removal!! Another special thank you to our moms for putting time aside to help Dorian and our students!
