A letter from Dr. McNiff

May 8, 2018
Dear Families,
                  Our Catholic schools are proud to offer the finest academic and spiritual education for the students and families we serve. We understand many parents are interested in after-school enrichment programs that will give their children an edge in their development as students and leaders.
As such, beginning September 2018, your school will offer an enhanced after-school enrichment program for grades K-8. The program’s structure allows students time to play, complete homework, and learn in community with their peers. In addition to the current after-school resources and programs available, the after-school enrichment program provides students with an opportunity to engage in new activities. While activities may vary from school-to-school, the types of opportunities include:
                Academic Clubs: general tutoring, reading or math-specific tutoring, homework club, foreign language, journalism
                Performing Arts Clubs: theater/drama, dance, piano, choir
                Sports & Games: basketball, baseball, volleyball, golf, taekwondo, chess
                Other Activities: coding, robotics, arts and crafts, cooking, sewing, leadership /government
o   Quiet time for students to do their homework
o   Unstructured play time; and outdoor play time (weather permitting)
o   Snacks/lunch
The after-school program will run Monday through Friday, except on days when schools are closed. Parents who are interested in learning more about our after-school enrichment program or enrolling their child in the program  more information is located at Thank you for your support in helping us provide even more ambitious and enriching activities for the students and families we proudly serve.

Timothy J. McNiff, ED.d.
Superintendent of Schools
The Archdiocese of New York
