St. George Greek Orthodox Church of Schenectady Honors Greek School Students

SCHENECTADY, NY – St. George Greek Orthodox Church’s Greek School Board sponsored the end-of-the-year celebration and moving-up ceremony on June 2. Students kicked off the celebration by reciting the Greek National Anthem followed by an opening prayer and welcoming remarks from Fr. Neofitos Sarigiannis. The program’s 25 youth and 13 adult learners received certificates and congratulations from family and community members.

In her speech, School Board Administrator and Greek School Teacher Presvytera Catherine Sarigiannis reminded those in attendance of the school board’s mission statement and celebrated all of the successes of the school year, despite the challenges of the pandemic: “This year was our first year as a re-established, in-person Greek School. It was filled with success and achievements, and we witnessed firsthand the true meaning of ‘koinotita.’”

This school year was the first under the guidance of an established school board. The current board members are President Diamanto Ktenas, Greek School Administrator and Teacher Presvytera Catherine Sarigiannis, Secretary and Greek Culture Instructor Athena Pagnotti, Parish Council Liaison Maria Dostis, and Board Member Demetrios Michael.

The School Board extended its gratitude to all those who made the 2021-2022 school year a success, including the dedicated teachers, parents, grandparents, Schenectady AHEPA 125, and the greater St. George Community and Parish.

Presvytera closed her remarks by stating: “This is just the beginning. We have taken a tremendous step in the right direction towards building a foundation upon which St. George’s Greek School can grow and future generations can thrive.”
