Night For Hope 2018

Since 2011 St. Ephrem Schools teachers Mr. Ricky Diffendale and former teacher, Miss Jennifer Rizzuto, have been producing an amazing night of talent and fundraising for families in our community that have been affected by Cancer. 

Monies raised are gifted to a family who is overcoming the obstacles Cancer poses. Each year Night For Hope is centered around specific cancer, this year it was Kidney Cancer. 

Mr. D and Miss Rizzuto ask St. Ephrem parents and students to donate their time, recourses, and talents to help put one of our greatest nights.

Matthew Blandino grabs the Gold

Grades K-5th have been working diligently all year on their Mathletics earning certificates every week for the extra work they do.  Each class is vying to be the first to all achieve a gold certificate.  Today, third grader, Matthew Blandino was the first student to receive a gold certificate.  Each student must work independently for months to achieve this award.  We celebrate Matthew’s dedication and accomplishment and look forward to awarding each student their gold as they receive them.  For more information on mathletics  simply ask your child’s teacher for their login information. 

 

Ariana Ayala takes 1st place

St. Ephrem was well represented in this year regional religion bee.  All 8 of our students did us proud in the Brooklyn regional religion bee.  We give special praise to Ariana Ayala who took first place in the 3rd-5th grades division.  She will move on to represent St. Ephrem and Brooklyn as a whole at the Diocesan-wide Bee at the Immaculate Conception Center in Douglaston on May 8th.  We wish her all the luck.  

Congrats to all of our participants.
