WHITESTONE – Holy Cross Stars Academy in Whitestone celebrated Greek Independence Day with an event on March 24 that featured a mini-parade with the school’s 2 and 3 year-olds, some even wearing the traditional costumes associated with the holiday, the foustanella and the Amalia.
Waving Greek flags in honor of March 25th, the dual holiday of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary and Greek Independence Day, the students showed their pride in their Hellenic heritage. The event helps to enrich the academic experience of the students as they learn the Greek language and culture at the Holy Cross Stars Academy.
