Congratulations to our talented and competing students in the Latin School. They participated in the annual Catholic Daughters of the Americas contest sponsored by the Bishop Kellenberg Court located in North Merrick, NY. The entries of the five winning students exemplified the themes of “Stewards of God’s Creation” or “How We Care for Our Environment?” The contestants demonstrated their skills, imagination, and creativity in their selected essays, poetry, art, computer art, music, and photography samples. Awarded were the following sixth and seventh grade students: ESSAY – Ara San Antonio (6), Nicholas Morales (6); ART – Sydney Rinaldi (6); COMPUTER ART – Gabriella Zuniga (6); and MUSIC – Evan Carroll (7). An awards ceremony and celebration was held in March 2016 at the Sacred Heart School in Merrick to reward their achievements with monetary prizes, and certificates from the Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Assemblyman David McDonough, and Senator Michael Venditto. Congratulations to our accomplished winners and their notable achievements.
