‘Academic excellence enriched by strong Catholic values, faith and community’ is the theme of new programs and services that will be featured at Resurrection Grammar School’s Spring Open House, Sunday, April 7.
During presentations and tours of the campus from 12-2pm, visitors will be able to speak with the new principal, faculty, current students, parents and alumni to learn what makes Resurrection so special. Families are drawn to Resurrection for several key reasons. Resurrection follows the New York State curriculum plus so much more with classes in religion, art, Spanish, computer (Google Classroom), music, library, and physical education. Resurrection also offers an advanced math program with an opportunity to take the Algebra I Regents in eighth grade. Additionally, students at Resurrection have the opportunity to participate in after school enrichment programs as well as the athletics program for fifth through eighth grades. Parents looking for a place where their children will be encouraged and challenged without getting lost in the crowd will find that at Resurrection.
In her first year as Principal at Resurrection Grammar School, GinaMarie Fonte, formerly at Transfiguration School in Tarrytown, has been a catalyst for change. One of the biggest programmatic enhancements has been the launch of a full day Pre-Kindergarten offered to both three and four year old students. Additionally, Resurrection features a dedicated two-year old program on campus.
“We have made some very positive changes to our school, and I am anticipating more wonderful things to come, from coming together for morning prayers, adding an Early Drop-off Program and a Full Day PreK-3, to enhancing technology use and exposure to online learning in our Middle School – with an individual Chromebook for each of our students and the use of Google Classroom for our teachers,” said Fonte.
Resurrection has a legacy of providing an outstanding education that blends a child’s academic and spiritual development in accordance with the educational mission and ministry of the Catholic Church. Rich with wonderful traditions, students at Resurrection not only excel in common core academics, they also learn the virtues of empathy and compassion by participating in service opportunities, including Midnight Run, Caritas Food Pantry and the Thanksgiving and Christmas Feasts prepared and served at the POTS shelter in the Bronx.
