Attention All Marching Unit Members

Please read the attached letter for information about the   Memorial Day Parade


The fifth grade completed the Paper Table Challenge!
It was fun and also hard. We learned about the basics of construction and working together as a team. Groups had to build a table out of newspaper, tape, and cardboard that held a heavy textbook. We had to reinforce our structures with bearings and brackets. It was very time consuming and hard ,but we all had fun. It was a great experience, and we hope to do it again!

OFFICIAL NOTICE
Rockville Centre- Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure (75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.  In conformity with the IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be. She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.
