We have several additions to our calendar that we sent home prior to the Easter Break in March:  Please note these events…


Wednesday, April 18th   School-wide trip to Manhattan- National Geographic Encounter.   Students attending should bring paper bag lunch and dress in their gym uniform and sneakers.    

Those not attending, we do not hire a substitute teacher if you chose not to send your child on a school trip.


Monday, April 23    Culture Day at SCCA

St. Camillus Catholic Academy is a diverse community , comprised of people of many  wonderful cultures and ethnicities. Our students, staff and teachers are themselves an immigrant or their parents or grandparents immigrated to the United States .  We thank the United States of America for welcoming us and making us part of the family we call AMERICA. WE are no longer the “Melting Pot” we are now a “Mosaic” , each tile keeping its identity and bringing its unique qualities to the larger picture.

We want to celebrate this diversity with a culture Day.  

On Monday, April 23, 2018 we will celebrate with food, language, artwork, music, dance, and traditional costumes.   We need your help to make this happen. Parents we need you to send in food from your country, students we need you to come in with symbols of your ethnic background, wear your traditional clothes of your country…parents we need you to help to supervise the event, you can earn hours….  Please call the office 718-634-5260 to respond or email ssmithgonzalez@gmail.com.
