The Christmas Pageant, a tradition in St. Stan’s Parish and school, took place on the weekend of December 17-18. Students from St. Stan’s Academy dressed the parts of all the major players in the story of Bethlehem, which included the Holy Family, shepherds, kings and angels. The little drummer boy made an appearance as well. The Children’s Choir, under the direction of Malgorzata Staniszewski and Halina Kalitka, sang traditional Christmas songs in Polish and English, such as "Silent Night," O Come All Ye Faithful," "Pojdzmy Wszyscy do Stajenki," "We Three Kings," and "O Little Town of Bethlehem." A non-traditional song included "The Friendly Beasts," a hymn about the lovely legend that barn animals magically can talk on Christmas night. Continue reading Christmas Pageant

Our drama club is currently wrapping up its third year. Any student of S.S.K.C.A., in grades 5 through 8, interested in joining the club is welcome. The students have been working throughout the year, rehearsing twice a week, and putting a lot of effort into preparing for the end-of-the-year performances.

Saturday, May 14, 2011 was a very special day for the children in 3rd Grade at St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy, as well as the children enrolled in the St. Stanislaus Kostka CCD Program. All 41 children anxiously arrived at school and then processed to church. This would be their first time to receive Jesus in Holy Communion.
The church was beautifully decorated with white flowers at the altar and white bows lining the pews for where the children would sit. Fr. Tadeusz Maciejewski was the celebrant for the Mass.
"Annie" is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
In response to a request of Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens, the SSKCA “Sharing Smiles Klub” and the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary of St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy, together with the St. Stan’s Parish and the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, provided for a letter-writing campaign, aimed at the State Legislature to renew and strengthen stabilized rent laws and affordable housing. This legislation was left out of the State budget, set to expire on June 15, 2011. These laws are crucial for the city’s more than 1,000,000 rent stabilized units to remain affordable.
During intermission of a production honoring the victims of 9-11 on Friday, May 20, at St. Stan’s school hall, students from the SSK and Sodality encouraged parents and patrons to sign individual letters to Gov. Cuomo, who supports the renewal of New York rent laws, so that he in turn would have people power to present to the State Legislature.
