Last Thursday, January 30th, the 4th and 5th graders participated in the New York Blood Center’s Little Doctors Program. The program taught them about the importance of giving blood to save lives as well as the importance of blood in their own bodies. The lesson was concluded with their participation in a blood drive, supported by the school and parish community. Thank you to all who came and donated – you are a superhero, now the students understand why.
Congratulations to all the students that participated in our Middle School Math Bee on Friday 24, 2020. We are so proud of you!
Congratulation to our winner Giuliano Meta Grade 8 and runner up Irene Zheng Grade 6

St. Athanasius honored the Rosary month by praying one decade of the Rosary every morning.
On October 12th, St. Athanasius students and families honored Christopher Columbus in a parade on 18th Avenue. We also took the opportunity to bring attention to a great woman who made New York what it is today, Mother Cabrini.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for a wonderful “First Day of School”! We especially thank you for your cooperation and support with our dismissal procedures at the gates. In our efforts to keep your children as safe as possible, we will be dismissing students at the gates of the parking lot every day. Please wait outside the gates as teachers bring the children there to dismiss. We look forward to a great school year.
P.S. If you took “1st-day” pictures, please forward them to us, so we can make a display. Thank you!
