Hand in Hand Through Christ

From the Principal

             April and May have been busy months in the life of Ss. Joachim and Anne School. On our return from Easter vacation, the children in Grades 4, 6, and 8 were well prepared for the tedious testing of the NYS Common Core Math and English Language Arts Exams.
             The children in Grade 2 and various other grades received the Precious Body and Blood of Christ for the first time on Saturday, May 3, 2014. The day was filled with sunshine, joy, and splendor.
            On Monday, May 19 two of our students, Venus Nnadi and Danny-Elle Josama will represent our school as finalists at the L-EPAC Junior High Spelling Championships. We are delighted that our school reached the finals.
           The Mary Germano Aquinas Program will participate on the Diocesan level on May 21, at St. Kevins in Flushing with their project, named Sickle Cell Anemia: A Cure for Anthony. The students did an extensive amount of research on the topic. Their presentation includes a video, interviews, clay models, expository essays, informative presentation boards, and more. We applaud their determination and tenacity.
It is with a heavy heart that I end this message with sadness. Our beloved Father John Byrnes, the parochial vicar of Ss. Joachim and Anne for over 20 years, passed away on Aril 26, 2014. Father Byrnes simple style encompassed the community of SSJA with kindness, love, and compassion. His exceptional gift of counseling for endless hours touched the lives of an enormous amount of people. We were all dependent on him for his guidance and direction. This ordinary man who did extraordinary things will never be forgotten. May his eternal reward be great and may he rest in peace. Amen
Sincerely in Christ,
Mrs. Linda Freebes
