You are cordially invited to join us on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH for the 3rd Annual Fr. Roman Gorowski Memorial Golf Classic & Scholarship Dinner, which will be held at the prestigious North Hills Country Club in Manhasset, Long Island.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with the history behind this wonderful event, a number of SSKCA Alumni wanted to honor the memory of Fr. Roman Gorowski, who was a long-time, extremely beloved Pastor here at St. Stan’s and was an incredible supporter of the Academy. Fr. Roman passed away back in 2013 after a long battle with cancer and in 2018, this ambitious group of alumni felt that the best way to keep Fr. Roman’s legacy intact was by establishing a scholarship endowment in his name with the proceeds from this annual golf outing and gala dinner to help SSKCA students and families who needed financial assistance in order to continue their education at St. Stan’s. Thanks to the generosity of the participants from the previous 2 outings (2018 and 2019), we have been able to distribute nearly $35,000 of scholarship money and financial support in Fr. Roman’s name!!! However, as a result of the postponement of last year’s event due to the pandemic, this fund is in dire need of replenishment if we are to continue offering this essential financial assistance to our students and families in the current school year and beyond!!!
This spectacular event includes 18 holes of golf at this Robert Trent Jones designed, private, members-only course, a full breakfast buffet, BBQ lunch, cocktail hour (featuring lobster, salmon and shrimp), top shelf open bar, full dinner (featuring carving and pasta stations) followed by raffle drawings, dinner and dessert. For the non-golfers, there is an opportunity to join us for the cocktail hour, dinner and dessert portion of the event (it’s well worth attending even if you aren’t a golfer to socialize on their beautiful outdoor patio and dining area). In addition, there are plenty of sponsorship opportunities as well, where individuals, families and businesses can participate by contributing donations (either monetary or through valuable gifts that we can offer as raffle prizes during the event). The best part is that you don’t have to be a member of the SSKCA family to join us – everyone is invited to attend!!!
In order for this event to be a success, we need plenty of golfers (you can register as a single player or foursome), dinner guests (all are invited) and sponsors (Special Hole Contest and Tee Sign Sponsors are the most popular choices and are prominently displayed at each hole on the course). Please spread the word about the event to anyone from your contacts that might be interested in attending!!!
If you would like to support this fun and exciting SSKCA event, please contact me ASAP (preferably by Friday, September 3rd) for more details (or if you have any questions) and to reserve your spot for golf, dinner or a sponsorship opportunity.
Once again, thanks so much for your continued support of the Academy and I look forward to having you join us at North Hills Country Club on Thursday, 9/16.
With unending gratitude and appreciation,

Kudos to our amazing music teacher, Ms. Bozena Konkiel, for writing & composing our first ever school song! Check out the videos below of our students performing it!
Overcoming the difficulties of this pandemic year, and with the support of faculty and staff who made in-person learning possible, SSKCA 8th graders have been accepted at top-tier Catholic, public and private schools in New York City and the tri-state area. In total, the class of 16 was awarded over $400,000 in high school scholarships.
In a recently released youtube video, SSKCA debuted an original anthem written by music and math teacher, Bozena Konkiel. Have a listen!
Will you need an umbrella tomorrow? Should you put on extra sunscreen? How can we predict what the weather will be?
SSKCA third and fourth graders are leading the Academy’s innovative weather science push. First step: SSKCA participated in “Weather Kids,” a program by NBC 4 New York that brings weather experts into the classoom. Meteorologist, Matt Brickman, made a virtual visit to Third and Fourth graders from Ms. Lynch and Ms. Petrizzo’s classes and students learned about weather science through different experiments, why clouds change colors and different types of storms.
For more information on Weather Kids check out this site: https://www.nbcnewyork.com/on-air/community-top-stories/weather-4-schools/.
Now SSKCA is planning to invest in a weather station and maybe even form an afterschool weather club! Stay tuned for exciting developments!
