The first week of school at the Early Childhood Elementary started out wonderfully with a lot of smiles and eager students and staff to begin the new school year.
The school has been especially blessed this year with donations from many different places and people.

Two ladies at Our Lady Queen of Apostles, Mary Spillman and Dolores Mularski of Christian Services held a school supply drive for the children. Generous donations from many people came in and filled an SUV to maximum with school supplies for them Meanwhile, Annette Tash, a retired kindergarten teacher donated hundreds of books for the children.
On Friday, Diane Haacke, cousin to first grade teacher, Rosemary Haacke donated boxes of school supplies as well. The school is so thankful to all these people who opened up their heart to give to the students.
You can feel the positivity in the air as we start the year. Students reading together, sharing ideas, discovering new lessons have laid the foundation for learning.
A big thank also goes out to Bo Sawka, ELL teacher and others at ECE, for creating a garden club beautifying the front of the school, making flower boxes and growing vegetables in hydroponic trays.
It is going to be a wonderful year!
