Welcome to Ms. Madaio’s 4-1 class page!

Welcome to the 4th Grade. I look forward to this wonderful and exciting year!!

All homework and tests will be posted here as well as in the student’s homework notebooks. Please only do the assigned pages and sign all homework.

October 30, 2020
 
         Dear Parents/Guardians:
 
I thank all the parents of our students who have cooperated in all ways to keep our children safe.
 
Right now, it is law in the City of New York that we wear masks around our students,  in the academy building as well as on the grounds of the academy.  If this is not followed, our academy can be in jeopardy of being closed down if DOH and DOE inspectors  believe we are not following regulations in or out of the building by everyone. 
 
Inspectors are moving from location to location, and they can fine the school and you, personally, or even worse close us down if this very important mandate is not followed by everyone around the academy building.  Besides, we are practicing what I believe experts say is the opinion of the medical doctors and the law, that wearing masks will prevent the spread of the COVID 19 virus to those around us.    All parents  signed a consent form  after reading the handbook, and in order for all children to be here at our academy, all these regulations have to be followed. 
 
This morning I received several letters from parents upset that their child was near a parent who did not have a mask on.   It is of the upmost importance, regardless of what you personally believe, that you follow  the laws  made by the Diocese of Brooklyn which follow what the Department of Health and Department of Education mandate.  We cannot jeopardize the well being of others  or of this academy.  IT IS A MANDATE THAT MUST BE FOLLOWED WHEN DROPPING OR PICKING UP YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN FROM THE ACADEMY.
 
Have a blessed day and may our Lord, Jesus Christ, keep you and your loved ones safe.
         Mrs. Frances DeLuca
 
Please join us on Monday morning for a Thanksgiving Prayer Service to be hosted by the Fourth Grade.

There will be a zoom meeting on

Thursday, August 27 at 7 pm, ID# 967 474 0231, Passcode 2aPaty
 
This meeting will address the opening school year.
 

 

 

We have received word that more school’s are closing. Please note that the school closing is NOT our school.

July 9, 2020
Dear Parent or Guardian:
It is with deep sadness we must announce the permanent closing of six of our Catholic academies, within the Diocese of Brooklyn, effective August 31, 2020, due to the devastating effects of the COVID-19 crisis on enrollment and finances – an issue faced by many Catholic schools in the region and across the nation.
This communication is to assure you that your school is not included in this announcement and is planning to reopen in September 2020, when New York City and New York State determine it is safe to do so.
We want to share our commitment that the tradition of Catholic education in Brooklyn and Queens will continue. We are committed to giving all children an opportunity to receive a Catholic education.
The extended family of Catholic Academies and Parish Schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn must come together to mourn the losses suffered, pray for the future, and support our children, as many of them will need to transfer to a new Catholic Academy in the midst of very uncertain times.
Our smaller and caring community of Catholic Academies and Parish Schools have many advantages, as witnessed by how quickly we adapted to remote learning, to ensure and maintain our high standard of education. Our children knew that even though they were separated, they were not alone. Our devoted teachers and staff supported every child with the tools they needed to continue their education.
Planning is currently under way to serve all our students and school communities in the best way possible for the upcoming academic year, following state and health department requirements. More information about the reopening plan for your Catholic Academy or Parish School will be shared later in the summer, as guidance from the state and health officials evolves.
We look forward to continuing to care for and educate children with faith and knowledge in God’s plan for all of us.
Let us pray for every family, child, teacher, and school staff member at this time.
Sincerely,
Thomas Chadzutko

We are OPEN tomorrow

Posted on November 18, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Although the New York City Public Schools are closed, our Superintendent’s Diocesan Office has informed all Catholic Elementary Academies that we will be open till further notice.

We were informed that we would close only if the governor declares the complete city an orange zone or if he closes the schools.   We will be OPEN and in the next two days, we will be sending home books in case they will close us for Thanksgiving and thereafter.

We will be sending books and devices everyday till next Tuesday before Thanksgiving, allowing the children to keep certain books at home and bringing their devices back and forth.

I wish to inform you that  our nurse will be here from the city, but we have not yet been informed as to whether there will be yellow bus service or lunch. Therefore, please send, as always, a snack with your child/children and know that they may be sent home without lunch tomorrow if the city does not deliver lunches to us for the children.

Also,  we were not told whether yellow buses will be available for our children; therefore. you should make plans in the event that the yellow bus does not show up to pick up your child to come to school.

Please keep checking your teacher’s homework page, dojo, and this website in order to keep updated on all information.

May our Lord watch over you and your dear children,

Mrs. DeLuca

Ozone Park Block Association Food Pantry

Posted on November 5, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It has come to my attention that the Ozone Park Block Association has a food pantry here at the DESHI CENTER on 83-10 Rockaway Blvd and 83rd Street.  If you or any one you know is in need of food, please pass this information on to them.

Every Saturday morning, beginning at 6 a. m. at the DESHI CENTER, 83-10 Rockaway Blvd, food is being given out to assist all people during this difficult time of the Pandemic.  Please feel free to go and get help for you, or some one you know, and your dear children.

God bless and watch over you,

Mrs. Frances DeLuca

Dear Parents,

The following information has been sent today to us regarding the Diocese’s virtual learning program.

September 2, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Congratulations, your child has been accepted into the Saint Thomas Aquinas Distance
Learning Program. We are excited about the incredible response received to this new
initiative and are looking forward to the beginning of the new school year. As servants of the
Lord, we are called to answer the needs of his people in 2020, that means virtual learning.
Information pertaining to the pick-up of student devices and other materials will be
forthcoming. We are currently arranging the logistics and locations aligned with safety
precautions regarding the distribution of materials. We are also in the process of finalizing
faculty and student schedules for the instructional program – families can look forward to
hearing from your child’s teachers soon.

In the days ahead, we will be sending out more information regarding your child’s online
learning accounts and your parent portal information; please keep checking your email.
Additionally, you may visit the website: https://stthomasaquinasbq.org/ and the FAQ page
regarding details on some of the many questions that have been received. Please check the
site regularly, as important updates and new information will be shared, as we approach the
first day of school.

The distance learning program orientation schedule will begin on September 16th, and
continue through September 18th, with the first full day of instruction to take place on
September 21st
.
Saint Thomas Aquinas, pray for us and bless our new instructional program.
Sincerely,
Thomas Chadzutko
Thomas Chadzutko, Ed.D.
