Letter Regarding Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Academy

March 12, 2018

Dear School Family of SsJA,

On February 28, 2018, the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens announced that Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Academy will close its doors in June. Our Lady of Lourdes Parish School and now as a Catholic Academy has served faithfully, instructing an enormous number of outstanding students in the name of Jesus.

We pray that Our Lord will console the Administration, Teachers, students and families of OLLCA. May peace and new beginnings be found on their doorstep.

We will continue to pray for all of them and we welcome all those who have and who will register here at SsJA. We will embrace them with love, respect and goodness to our school family.

Sincerely in Christ,

Mrs. Linda Freebes, Principal


Catholic Schools Week 2018

 “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country. Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, we, as educators, are growing with them. In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed.” NCEA Website.

This week the faculty and students of Ss. Joachim and Anne  celebrated Catholic Schools Week. There were many events and activities that the school participated in. 

January 29th- Buddy Day- Students from the upper grades visited students in the lower grades to do arts and crafts.



January 30th- International Day- The spirit of the Olympics visited SSJA as each class chose to represent one country. Students and teachers decorated their classrooms, some wore native garb,  and tried delectable cuisine to immerse themselves in their “new” cultures.


January 31st- Catholic Schools Week Mass and Student Appreciation Day- All students were awarded Talent Certificates and were given ice cream by Mrs. Freebes.

February 1- Pajama Day/Twin Day

Students celebrated by coming to school in their pajamas and dressing up as twins. 

February 2- Crazy Hat Day/ School Parade- Students came to school wearing crazy hat creations and we held a parade to show off the wackiness. 

More photos of Catholic Schools Week can be found in the photo section of our website.
