Saint Joseph School To Host Open House

Garden City’s Saint Joseph School, which is devoted to integrating the teachings of the Catholic faith within a creative and stimulating learning environment, is hosting an open house on Sunday, Jan. 26, from 10:30 a.m. to noon., for nursery through grade 8.

The open house will allow parents to see for themselves how Saint Joseph School gives children an advantage for their whole life by providing a uniquely well-rounded education in a nurturing, small-group setting.

After refreshments are served, parents will see numerous displays and presentations in the classrooms­­—including children’s drawings, paintings, writings, computer lab exhibits, and science experiments—that demonstrate how Saint Joseph School gives students ample opportunity to explore new worlds, from the first day of Nursery to the last day of grade 8.

Teachers from all grades and several current students will be on hand to answer questions, helping parents discover the full range of classroom activities at Saint Joseph School—from creative, hands-on artwork in nursery and pre-k and introductory computer and music classes in kindergarten, to challenging reading and foreign language classes for Grades 1-5 and advanced math and computer instruction in the later grades.

The open house will give parents valuable insight into how Saint Joseph School carefully weaves moral and spiritual teachings and values into the regular learning curriculum, and how it provides the daily athletic activities and programs, including soccer and basketball teams, that foster physical development, a healthy competitive spirit, and lasting friendships.

Parents will also learn more about the abundance of engaging extracurricular activities available to students that provide vital growth and leadership opportunities, including arts and crafts programs, book, drama, and chess clubs, math contests, intramural sports, and community service.

All interested parents are welcome to the Open House on January 26 at Saint Joseph School, which is located at 450 Franklin Ave. in Garden City. For more details about the Saint Joseph School Open House, please contact Principal Eileen Kilbride, Ed.D., at 516-747-2730, or visit www.advantageforlife.org

The Best Secret In Town!

Did you know that each of our neighbor hood parks runs a playground program every summer? Children entering 1st through 8th grades who are residents of the Village are invited to come to the park during the summer to find out what activities are taking place.

Each park has its own “flavor” and “favorite” activities. The park directors and their staff run games, sports, tournaments, and arts and crafts activities during the day and into the evening. Trips are also run through the parks.
