Christmas Tree Lighting and Strategic Planning Update
Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic Academy had their first Annual Christmas Tree Lighting on December 6th. The choir sang carols, the tree was blessed by Bishop Sanchez and Mrs. AnnMarie Foertsch our most veteran teacher flipped the switch. After the lighting we all went to McLaughlin Hall to have hot chocolate and cookies. Families also chose a tag off of the trees in the gym to donate gifts to Catholic Charities this Advent.
Carols after the Lighting
We are working towards starting the NYC Free School Lunch Program. Please see the attached information for necessary steps. We are hopeful to have the program up and running by March 2018.
Letter to parents
Dear OLQMCA Community,
On behalf of the board of directors, I wish you a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving holiday. We all have plenty to be thankful for – our family and friends, our wonderful Academy and its dedicated and caring principal, faculty and staff.
Thanksgiving is a time for family, eating, and football. It is a time for reflection, prayer and appreciation.
Enjoy this Thanksgiving as it is the beginning of the holiday season. For the next month we will have many events to celebrate the excitement and anticipation of the Christmas season. Parents, enjoy the wide eyes, smiles and laughter of your children. Principal, faculty and staff, continue to lead in your very special way. I look forward to being at the campus building each morning and greeting all as they enter their classrooms. It is a good feeling to see all their smiling faces and know that they are learning, comfortable and safe.
God bless everyone on this Thanksgiving holiday.
Mark Scapp- OLQMCA Chairperson of the Board

Second Update on Strategic Planning Process
As many of you know Puerto Rico was virtually destroyed by Hurricane Maria. New York City is working closely with Puerto Rico in helping with the relief efforts. OLQMCA will be collecting the following specific items in order for us to assist in the relief efforts:
Diapers, Baby food, Batteries, First Aid Supplies, Feminine Hygiene Products
All items must be non-perishable, not second hand nor containing any liquid of any kind. Wet wipes will not be accepted.
Please send in your donation by October 2nd. Regardless of whether or not you are able to make a donation, please keep all those impacted by the recent natural disasters in your prayers.
We will also be looking for volunteers to help drive these items to one of the participating Fire Houses in Queens that are taking the collections on October 4th at 1:30 pm. If you are interested in volunteering please email Raquel Gavilan at Raquelgavilan@gmail.com
Thank you in advance.
