Genevieve Desiderio

OLGCA family, please keep Mrs. Silvery and her family in your prayers as they mourn the loss of her mother, Genevieve Desiderio. I know Mrs. Desiderio was an active parishioner for many decades at OLG, and that many in our community had a connection with her.

Arrangements are as follows:
Dahill Funeral Home
Wednesday 7-9
Thursday 5-9

Mass of Christian Burial
Friday 9:30 a.m. in OLG Church

I know that the teachers would like to attend, along with many of the students, and I would like to give them that opportunity. I will send home a paper tomorrow; If your child is in grades 3-8 and you would like to give your child permission to attend with their class, please return the paper with that indicated. If you yourself are attending, your child may of course sit with you - just indicate that on the paper.

Grades 2 and 3 have a field trip on Friday and will still attend that field trip.

Students in grades Nursery, K, and 1 will not attend unless a parent or other designated adult wishes to take them. At such a young age, I believe if you do want your child to attend, it is best done with a family member or close family friend. Again, if this is the case, please indicate it on the paper that will go home tomorrow.

PARENTS, in order to allow all teachers to attend, I will need some help with the students whose parents choose to have them stay in the school. If you are Virtus trained, not planning to attend the Mass, and able to help out that morning, I would be forever grateful for it. You can email me at Thank you; I know I can always count on our OLGCA family to help us through, whatever the need.

And as always we pray:

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul, and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Thank you,
~~~Mrs. Sarno

School Spirit Song Contest!

Grades 1-8

As their third trimester project, grades 6 and 7 are producing a video about our school, its people, and what makes us unique. They've decided a student-created song would be just the thing to make the video complete.

So here are the rules!
-Your song should celebrate and encourage school spirit!
-Open to Grades 1-8
-Entry may not be longer than three minutes
-All themes, language, etc. must be appropriate for a Catholic school setting, of course.
-You may use instrumental/background music from existing songs if you like.

Audio recordings are due to Ms. Campanella at by May 6, 2016.

Good luck to all and we can't wait to hear what you can do!

Library survey - see link below

OLGCA parents and students: would you be so kind as to go to the link below and fill out this quick survey about our LIbrary? If you got the OptionC alert email, this is the same link. Please copy and paste the link if it will not click through for you.

We would like to hear from as many parents and students as possible, but please don't fill it out more than once per person.

Thank you very much for your help! We continue to move forward to better and better things!

One more day to donate to Operation Gratitude!

This morning, a reporter and cameraman from The Tablet and Currents on CTN came to do a story about OLGCA and our drive for toiletry and personal items for Operation Gratitude. (The reporter saw it on our school calendar online and called to ask me about it.) They interviewed Ms. Donnelly, our Student Council officers, and me about what prompted the drive and what we hoped to accomplish by it.

It is going to air tonight on CTN at 7:30 and 11:30, and again at 6:30 am tomorrow.

Time Warner Cable channel 97
Cablevision channel 30
Live stream:

It will be up on demand on the website in a few days.

There may also be a writeup in the Tablet, but it's not for sure yet - keep your eyes peeled!

UPK registration

Parents of Nursery students from OLG who graduated in June should either have been contacted by DOE or will be contacted soon.

Parents with UPK-eligible children, who did not attend Nursery here, who would like to enroll in the PreK program being held at this site should visit and click the "Call Me" button to have a representative contact you.

Or, call 212-637-8000 to speak directly to someone at the Department of Ed. The proper name is "PreK Center at 385 Avenue W" and the program code is 21Z077.

Please keep in mind that although PreK is being held at our site, it is not being conducted by Our Lady of Grace. Therefore all registration has to go through the Dept. of Education, and PreK students will follow the public school calendar.

Thank you for your continued patience with this process.

~~~Mrs. Sarno

A Note from the Nurse

Dear Parents:

All students entering 6th grade are required to have a Tdap & V2U#2 vaccines. The forms were sent home with all missing immunizations listed. A proof of immunization must be sent to school in September.

All children who had MAF services last year were issued new forms. If your child requires this service, please send completed forms at the beginning of the school year.

Students are not allowed to bring any medication to school and the Nurse cannot administer any medication without proper paperwork. If your child needs to take meds during school either daily or as necessary, please contact school nurse at 718-375-2081.

Have a great summer!
