St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy honored students at their awards ceremony with certificates for achievements such as honor roll and perfect attendance. However, they also honored two other special workers.
On April 23rd 2013, students and their parents gathered together in the parish hall, adjacent to the academy, also to honor representatives from Home Depot and Behr Paints. These corporations joined to paint the cafeteria with fresh and vibrant colors, a renovation at no cost to the academy.
“Over February break, as you know, we completed several renovations,” said Mr. Robert DiNardo, Principal, to students and their parents. “We got a new sound system, we fixed the elevator, we got new lights in the classrooms, but we also had our cafeteria painted and I’d like to recognize representatives from Home Depot and from Behr Paint, who very generously brought a crew here and did that job for us.”
Special thanks also go to Ms. Elsie Ryley, a parent volunteer that contacted Home Depot and arranged for the painting.
“St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy honors Veronica De Jesus Dockery of Home Depot Corp. and William Farrell of Behr Paint Corp. in recognition and appreciation of their efforts in the painting of our cafeteria. Our students will always be grateful,” reads a plaque that was presented to both of the representatives. The plaque will be displayed in the building for all to see.
