              W        ith the blessings of our church, we began our school year and welcomed students and teachers on September 14
                       with the Agiasmo service. Our school operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6 PM and on Saturdays from
10 AM to 1 PM. We currently have 90 students enrolled. Please see the church secretary, Linda Ducas, if you would like to enroll
your child.
   Our teachers strive to achieve the highest goals possible. They recently attended a seminar hosted by our Metropolis, which
focused on the latest teaching tools, especially the newest books available for our younger grades.
   Another program established by the Ministry of Education in Greece is the “Elinomathia” program for students ages 12 years and
older. This is a 3-level certificate program. The first two levels of certification allow individuals who wish to obtain employment in
Greece. The third level certificate allows students to attend university without any further testing beyond this certificate. Mrs. Voula
Polychronopoulos offers preparatory classes to students who plan to take the exams for these certificates. For more information,
please contact Kiria Voula.
   We also have a program for adults.
   We are proud that you have entrusted us with the education of your children, and we pledge to do our best to ensure a successful
year. We especially thank you for your support of our Greek School.                                       Voula Polychronopoulos
