Principal's Newsletter


June 2018

““We may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated. It may even be necessary to encounter the defeat, so that we can know who we are. So that we can see, oh, that happened, and I rose. I did get knocked down flat in front of the whole world, and I rose. I didn’t run away – I rose right where I’d been knocked down. And that’s how you get to know yourself. You say, hmm, I can get up! I have enough of life in me to make somebody jealous enough to want to knock me down again. I have so much courage in me that I have the effrontery, the incredible gall to stand up. That’s it.””
Maya Angelou

GRADUATION

At the beginning of June, we celebrated the graduation of the Class of 2018. On Friday, 1 June, we had the Graduation Liturgy in the Br. Ralph Clifford Memorial Auditorium. Fr. Ralph Edel, our chaplain, was the celebrant; Fr. Bill Sweeney and Fr. Mark Simmons, who had both served as chaplains for this graduating class, concelebrated the Mass. Fr. Ralph gave an inspiring sermon about being in the moment and making good choices. Our Liturgical Ensemble sang beautifully. At the conclusion of the Mass, we presented a variety of awards from civic, educational, and political organization. We ended with several special awards given by the school. The faculty recipient of the Franciscan Spirit Award was Ms. Ann Marie Rich of our Science department.

On Saturday, 2 June, we had our Graduation ceremony in Lou Carnesecca Arena at St. John’s University. All the graduates processed onto the stage, shaking the hand of either Br. Leonard Conway or Mr. Patrick McLaughlin. Sarah Williams delivered the student welcome, and Olivia Morris delivered the student address. Mr. Christopher Mendolia announced the recipients of the departmental academic awards: two students received certificates for commendation and one student was given a medal as the top student in each department. In addition, we presented the following special awards:
 - Franciscan Spirit Award: Brianna Sheridan
 - Al Powers Student-Athlete Award: Matthew O’Donnell
 - Sheila Barrett Knudsen Student-Athlete Award: Sarah Williams.

The General Excellence Medal was presented to two students: Olivia Morris and Chloe Sweeney. We presented certificates to students who had cumulative averages of at least 100%:
 Jessica Caliendo, Oisin Corbett, Nicholas Delacruz, Glenn Fiocca, Christopher Francone, Thomas Houghton, Nicholas Kokotos, Constantino Kosmidis, Isabel Leon, Elpida Leontiadis, John Sullivan, and Sarah Williams.

There were two recipients of the medal for excellence in Spanish; in addition to Christina Lino, Isabel Leon will also receive this medal.

Both days were spirited, positive, and dignified ceremonies. We congratulate all the graduates and their families on their great achievement. We wish them all the best as they continue their education and the pursuit of their goals and dreams. Well done.
