Principal’s Newsletter Principal’s Newsletter – October 5, 2018


Dear Parents,

Together with the Ukrainian World Congress and other organizations, we took time to remember the victims of the terrible tragedy in the history of the Ukrainian people – the Holodomor – the Genocide of 1932-1933.  For 85 days before the International Holodomor Memorial Day on November 24, 2018, a candle will be lit daily in a different part of the world uniting Ukrainians and friends of Ukraine in remembrance of the innocent victims of the genocidal policy of the Stalin regime, while raising awareness of the issues of human rights, respect and tolerance.  Today, during our Divine Liturgy our students sang and prayed. The eighth graders read the names of the 85 children who died and each student placed a single stalk of wheat in front of the Blessed Mother.  Special petitions were added during the Liturgy and it was a beautiful memorial service.

Thank you to all the teachers and students who participated but especially to Mrs. Hila for organizing this event.

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Shumny
