Joachim and Anne students displayed the St. Julie Billiart Sunflower STREAM Project at the Aquinas Exposition 2017. Van Gogh’s Sunflowers -five flowers in a vase has been the most visited painting in England. These flowers are bursting with meaning while representing the natural cycle of life with a supernatural glow. His flowers along with St, Julie Billiart’s inspiration energized the students to use Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math into developing the many facets of the project. Mr. Corso, our Assistant Principal, was the Moderator. SsJA’s Proud Aquinas Members are: Angie Bermeo, Rousseau Francois, Chelsea Mullings, Jessica Casamajor, Lauren Hedge, Jared King, Jonathan Laura, Divia Myers, Ashley Predvil ,Shelsy Fils Aime and Melodie Cadichon.
