Today, we started by praying together and attending the Divine Liturgy with our “Special Person”. After church, Fr. Ivan Turyk and Mrs. Lissette Shumny, a Principal at Assumption Catholic School in Perth Amboy, NJ awarded six 8 grade students with a $500 Scholarship for their commitment to Catholic School Education and living their Faith.
Back at school, we all shared our Heritage Posters and enjoyed an exciting assembly. We showcased two spectacular cultures: Ukraine and Spain. Our own Ukrainian Dance teacher, Ms. Anna Lawrence, showed off our dancer’s talents by performing three dances and our ACS Show Choir also sang the Ukrainian National Anthem. The performers did a fantastic job. Our second showcase featured our friends from The Paella Party and the talented Flamenco dancer, Christina. We all learned some new facts and some dance moves. We ended our celebrations with a tasting of pierogies and paella – two delicious ethic dishes!
Cheers to a successful 2019 Catholic Schools Week! ACS took the opportunity to learn about different cultures and celebrate our beautiful, unique and diverse cultures. We look forward to continuing to showcase different countries. Thank you to all volunteers, students and faculty that helped make Catholic Schools Week at ACS a success!
