Congratulations to Liam Leonard, Joseph Liberatore, Christian Valanzola, and Lucas Ward, whose essays were chosen to advance in the 2015-2016 Americanism Essay Contest sponsored by the Brick Elks Lodge of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America. Students were asked to author an essay detailing "What I Can Do to Promote Americanism and Love of Country." Saint Dominic School students rose above the competition, explaining how important democracy is to them, while demonstrating what it takes to be an outstanding citizen.
On Wednesday, April 20, 2016, all Saint Dominic School participants were presented with certificates by Ms. Eunice Batiato of the Brick Elks Lodge. Our winners were surprised at this assembly and joined by their parents to acknowledge their accomplishments. A dinner to award the prizes at the district and state level will be held in May 2016. Our winners are excited to attend the festivities.

Saint Dominic School Expands STEM Program!
Everywhere you look, another mention is being made of the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in education in order for students to be successful in the 21stCentury. STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. In order to enhance our STEM curriculum, Saint Dominic School recently purchased a 58-cm tall humanoid robot named NAO (pronounced “now”) from Aldebaran Robotics.
