We wanted to share these notes from parents to highlight the great work our staff, students and parents have been doing during this difficult time. Keep up the good work OLGCA!
Hi Mrs Wolf,
I just wanted to write you a quick note to express my gratitude. I have been monitoring the virtual learning classes and i have to say, i am extremely impressed with how it was implemented and the progress we are at. When compared to public schools OLGCA, in my opinion is far and away excelling. A big thank you to you and your staff. Just wanted to let you know it’s appreciated.
Dear Mrs. Wolf,
Thank you so much for preparing and guiding the teachers and students and making the remote learning a huge success. OLGCA could not have handled this better! Having a reliable school schedule is helping make the best of a crazy situation.
Dear Mrs. Wolf,
I just want to send you a note to thank you and all the faculty for all your hard work with the distant learning. Joseph has adjusted quickly to the new learning environment and the new routine is working well. His teachers are doing a great job!! We appreciate the continuous communication; and above all, your care and concern for our kids. Thank you again.
Our “Kindness Matters” campaign, part of State Senator Andrew Gounardes’s “3 for Community” initiative, was featured in the senator’s recent email newsletter. Here’s what he had to say:
This month I’m honored to highlight the 3 for Community engagement of the student body at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy in Gravesend. This school year the entire academy joined forces with 3 for Community in developing their “Kindness Matters” campaign inspired by their principal, Mrs. Wolf. Each student created their own poster highlighting acts of kindness and helped to create a themed, handprint mural in the cafeteria. And students who were “caught” being kind received a postcard at home from their teacher to recognize their kindness! Principal Wolf ends every morning announcement by saying: “Remember, kindness does matter.” I couldn’t agree more.
Welcome to the dedicated and energetic Home Academy Association (“HAA”) (formerly the Preserving the Vision Council). Our wish is to have a school family of actively involved volunteers. HAA runs many events and fundraisers throughout the school year for both the children and adults. These events take place during school hours, after school and a few weekends. You as HAA volunteers are asked to help out at events if possible and to attend monthly evening meetings. We understand that circumstances limit some involvement, but we want and appreciate everyone’s available involvement and support.
This year we have some exciting new events such as First Day of School Coffee, Back to School Dance, Breakfast with the Bunny and Mozzarella and Wine Night. Please feel free to contact us about any ideas you may have.
We strive for the success of our children and for Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy. Our first meeting will be held on October 10, 2019 at 7:00 pm in the newly named Deacon Philip Siani Cafeteria. (Please note all HAA members actively participating must be in compliance with the Diocese Safe Environment Requirements). Hope to see you there.
