Greek Festival Begins!

Our annual Sts. Constantine and Helen Cathedral Greek Festival is happening for the entire week of June 4th-9th from 11am-9am—and party to midnight on Sat!.  Support our community by having traditional Greek Food for lunch or dinner, enjoy the kid’s rides and games, or just traditional Greek dance performances. Our K-8th grade students will perform on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th at 8:00pm!

Prevent the Summer Slide

Many children forget some of what they’ve learned or slip out of practice during the summer months. By implementing a few strategies, you can improve your child’s learning for the summer and beyond!

Six books to Success: engage your child in selecting the topics and set a summer goal!

Read Every Day: it can be newspapers, magazines or even a chapter in a book!

Reading Aloud: Help build listening and comprehension skills by taking turns reading together.

Second Grade Presents…

Our 2nd graders worked in small groups to diligently research an animal and present their findings to our 3rd graders!  They went fact finding in the library and on the internet for each animal’s habitat, physical characteristics, and behaviors. Each group included a topic and conclusion paragraph along with photos for their presentation.

French Immersion Summer Camp at Fantis!

Summer is almost here, are your plans all set? Bonjourny will be having camp located at A. Fantis for kids ages 3.5 to 11. Their program ensures children spend 2/3 of their time outside!
