A Letter From the Principal...

June 8, 2017

Dear St. Constance School Families,

All are invited to join us for our All School Closing Liturgy tomorrow, Friday, June 9, 2017 beginning at 8:00 a.m. Students will return to school following the Liturgy and will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m. for summer vacation.

Congratulations are extended to Ysabelle Pinpin on receiving the Ann Marie McGeever Memorial Christian Athlete Award. This award is given in recognition of Exemplary Christian Character Displayed throughout the course of the year, both on and off the court during the 2016-2017 school year.

Congratulations are also extended to our Preschool/PreK teacher, Ms. Teresa Sadofsky on her upcoming wedding nuptials this July. Best wishes to the happy couple!

I would like to acknowledge and thank our pastor, Father Ted, the entire pastoral staff, teachers, and support staff of St. Constance School who so richly deserve this recognition for their excellent work, enthusiasm, and genuine concern for our community. Each and every one of them have contributed in a very real way to the success of St. Constance School.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my personal appreciation to all the school organizations and volunteers for their work throughout the year. St. Constance School is blessed to have such dedicated and committed individuals. I consider myself fortunate to have the privilege of serving you as school principal. I strongly believe that as we take a comprehensive view of our school; the quality of staff, student achievement scores, quality of our educational programs, services offered, success with extracurricular activities, and quality of school facilities, that St. Constance School is the best investment that you can make!

Thanks to our friends at Big Shoulders and our wonderful Patron, Ms. Leigh-Anne Kazma and the Kazma Family Foundation for their generous support through scholarships, resources, programs, and opportunities that they have given us. On behalf of the entire St. Constance School family, please accept our sincerest thanks and gratitude for the extraordinary gifts given to us, and know that you continue to be in our prayers.

As I’ve mentioned in previous communications, the opening day of school for students in grades 1-8 will be on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. Please note that this will be a full day of school.

Students in grades Preschool (3), PreK (4) and Kindergarten will begin on Friday, August 18, 2017 with an 11:30 a.m. dismissal for these students only. Parents of students entering Preschool, PreK, and Kindergarten will receive further information regarding their “Orientation Conference” in a separate mailing later this summer.

Please note that this will be the final Thursday Folder of the current school year. Our next formal newsletter will be posted on August 1, 2017. Please view our school website at www.stconstanceschool.org for summer information.

Our school office hours during the summer will be Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., excluding the week of July 24-28 for summer maintenance, and July 3-4 for the holiday weekend.

Thank you to the Zegarski family for donating 2 new ipad cases to our computer lab. We appreciate your kindness.

We would also like to thank our friends at Big Shoulders for the donation of books through Bernie’s Book Bank. I’m certain the children will enjoy the assortment of literature.

Finally, I would like to conclude by thanking our wonderful parents for their support, kindness, and for entrusting their child’s education to us. To those families who are leaving us this year; thank you for your friendships, you will be missed. To those families returning, I look forward to our continued work together, knowing we can accomplish great things!

Wishing you a safe and wonderful summer!


Eva M. Panczyk

Having fun with our principal!
