Martin De Porres
Spring is here and in full bloom. We at the Martin De Porres School are thrilled with the new season and all it brings. All around us creation is bursting forth! The warm and sunny weather that has finally arrived lifts our spirits.
At the MDP Elementary/ Junior High School, the students presented their annual dance production with the theme being “ Legends and Fairy Tales”. The auditorium was packed with students, staff, families and friends for the event. It was a tremendous event and the level of talent was extraordinary. Also, the annual ASPCA DAY (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) was held recently. These events are just a few of the extraordinary learning experiences for our kids.
Over in Rockaway Park at the MDP High School, our students continue to work diligently at their studies both in the academic and vocational areas. In particular, several of our students have been working at student internships at Marshals, the department store. MDP is very grateful to Marshals for their help in providing this opportunity. Presently, our vocational department is working diligently at securing summer work placements for our students.
As spring marches on, we look forward to our graduations in June. Graduation is a special time here at Martin De Porres. It is a time to reflect on the accomplishments of our students and to celebrate. Graduation in Elmont will be on June 12 in the evening. The Martin De Porres High School and Casa De LaSalle will hold graduation together on June 25 in the morning. We look forward to these days!
