Scenes from Christmas 2016 and A Wish for 2017

Our students, faculty and parents were treated to a host of wonderful events leading up to the Christmas holidays – and gave back in good measure as well. From the Thanksgiving Food Drive to the Girl Scout Coat Drive to the Toys for Tots campaign to singing carols to senior citizens at the Pete McGuinness Senior Center of St. Anthony’s parishcarolling, the St. Stans community proved that Giving is the reason for the season. We also gave a great big shout out to Sonny Mukhopadhyay who jump-started the effort to make sure Christmas lights illuminated Manhattan Avenue. He joined us on Friday, December 16th, for our wonderful Christmas pageant and was presented with a certificate of appreciation and a note of thanks signed by all of our St. Stans students.


The Christmas show under the direction of Ms. Bozena and Ms. Magnano was a smashing production celebrating St. Stans 120th anniversary in 2016. We’ve been serving the community proudly since 1896 and hope to continue to do so into the next century. Currents TV even came by to do a look at our backstage production process – have a look at their great video if you haven’t seen it yet.


The weekend festivities continued with the Nativity pageant at St. Stans parish where our students reenacted the Nativity in three separate masses.


Santa also came to St. Stans TWICE – once for Breakfast with Santa and then to visit the students in their classrooms.

Before school let out, our students had festive class celebrations where cards were exchanged and many cookies eaten!

Here is a link to some video shorts sent in by parents from some of our events. Please share your photos and stories with us!

We wish our families, teachers and staff a healthy, happy 2017 filled with much joy and success. See you in school on Tuesday, January 2nd.






SSKCA Student Art Celebrated by New York State Senator Squadron


Congratulations to all of our students who participated in New York State Senator Squadron’s “Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration.” SSKCA students represented a majority of artists in the area responding to Senator Squadron’s call for “poems, essays, and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.”

You can find the entries of our students at the link below. When you click on their name their entry appears:
