Today the Kindergarten celebrated Chinese New Year. We hope all of our Chinese friends and neighbors have a safe and lucky new year. We look forward to continuing the celebration with a Lion dance on March 1st.
Today St. Ephrem celebrated 3 important events. We began our day with our Ash Wednesday Mass and had Valentine’s Day celebrations throughout the day, but for these youngsters, the celebration of the 100th day of school might have been the most important. Only 80 more to go!!!
Kindergarten created necklaces of 100 Froot Loops
2nd grade built castles to the sky of 100 paper cups.
We here at St. Ephrem are proud to announce that through the generous help of the Diocese of Brooklyn, St. Ephrem will be the home to a brand new Lab learners STEM lab beginning in September of 2018.
Take a preview of what’s to come… Lab Learner
Today, the St. Ephrem Aquinas Circle hosted newly elected Councilman Justin Brannan. He came to speak to the students about their project centering on NYC infrastructure. Students learned about the difficulties faced by the city in solving some of the issues which the students have been researching. Our students impressed the councilman with their keen interest and compelling questions.
We hope to see the Councilman again soon.
In the morning, our students gathered to experience an amazing display by the Harlem Magic Masters. Students watched and participated in various tricks and received a positive message about themselves and how to treat others.
Teachers got in on the fun too…
And even Fr. Adamo learned a new trick…
Thank you Harlem Magic Masters for giving us a great kick off to Catholic Schools Week.

On February 27, 2017, thanks to the continued generosity of the Tri-State Italian-American Congress, 109 students enrolled in Catholic elementary schools and academies within the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens received a scholarship to attend Catholic school. Auxiliary Bishop James Massa presided in place of Bishop Nicolas DiMarzio as the scholarships were presented at St. James Cathedral Basilica in downtown Brooklyn. In total, $100,000 in scholarship awards was given to students of Italian lineage. We are proud and happy for our students who received this award. If you are of Italian heritage inquire with the office about how you too can be a part of this next year.
