Letter: Catholic Schools Week

WHEREAS, the week of January 26 through February 1, 2014 has been declared Catholic Schools Week in our nation by the National Catholic Educational Association with the theme “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service”; and

WHEREAS, with the understanding that our children are our future, Our Lady Of Victory School has made the education of our children a top priority by helping each child to academically reach their potential and by teaching them good citizenship by being of service to other people; and

WHEREAS, Our Lady Of Victory School has been deeply committed in educating our children for 84 years and continues preparing them for adult life. They emphasize that schools are communities–small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, village and nation.    

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Thomas J. Tweedy, Mayor, do hereby proclaim January 26 through February 1, 2014 as Catholic Schools Week in the Incorporated Village of Floral Park in recognition of the devotion and dedication with which Our Lady Of Victory School has served our community.

Dated: January 22, 2014

Thomas J. Tweedy, mayor
