A NOTE FROM OUR GREEK SCHOOL PRINCIPAL, MARIA THEODOROPULU
May 26, 2020
Dear Ascension Greek School Parents,
I hope that this message finds you and your families healthy and safe.
Another productive school year in the life of Ascension Greek School has reached its end, despite the challenges all of us have encountered in our lives due to COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to thank all of you and my dear colleague teachers for responding positively and actively to this challenge, and for giving the opportunity to our students to continue making progress through their participation in distance learning (Zoom meetings) and the use of eLearning material.
Here I would like to recognize all our Greek School teachers in alphabetical order of their first name (as our students know them): k. Anastasia Anton, k. Marianna Nassis, k. Olga Metropulos & k. Sophia Metropulos. I consider myself very lucky and blessed for having the opportunity to work alongside such capable educators and for sharing with them the passion and love for teaching, education, and our students. Also, many thanks to our Pre-School and Kindergarten assistant, Alexandra (Lexi) Hugdahl who has been so helpful and sweet with all our very young students. We will miss her and wish her all the best in her future as she is going to college after graduating from High School.
We are all so proud of our students for all they accomplished this school year. As we did not have the opportunity to have an End of the School Year Program and to be all together to celebrate their accomplishments and to honor our 2020 Greek School graduates, you and your family can enjoy a Virtual End of the School year Program Video featuring our students and pictures from the past year.
In addition, I would like to express my gratitude to the following people who supported us and contributed to the success of our 2019-2020 Greek School Program:
- Our priest, Fr. Sotiri, for his guidance and continuous support to our teachers and students;
- The members of the Parish Council of our church for supporting the Greek school Ministry;
- Our pastoral assistant who edits our Greek School information and news on the Analypsis Newsletter
Last but not least I would like to thank all of you, all our wonderful Greek School Parents (and Grandparents), for believing to the value of Greek education for your children, and for supporting our Greek school Program offering your children unforgettable memories, skills and values for their life.
This week you will receive your children’s certificates by regular mail. During summer you will be informed about the Greek School plans for the new school year, and the decisions that will be made for teaching our students in a safe and fruitful way.
Please stay healthy, safe, and positive, and have a blessed, happy and relaxing summer with your families!
(Ascension Greek School Principal)
