State Senator Jeff Klein hosted a children’s festival commemorating the end of the school year at St. Margaret of Cortona School .
Hundreds of Bronx families gathered to celebrate the Bronx students’ hard work during the academic year. The festivities began with lunch and were followed by arts and crafts, such as spin-art and sand-art activities. Children danced to pop music throughout the celebration and enjoyed a bouncy castle. The excitement continued as attendees received elaborate face painting designs and enjoyed cotton candy and popcorn stations as well.
“I am thrilled to host this children’s festival and celebrate the dedication and achievements of our students. Today, we enjoyed quality time with our families and friends and created lasting memories. I am also thankful to the participating parents, teachers, and faculty who demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the children and contribute to their academic success and well-being,” said Senator Klein
“We at St. Margaret of Cortona are delighted we could join with Senator Klein to offer this wonderful end-of-the-school year festival to our students and community. The 2016 school year was filled with amazing experiences and being able to celebrate all of them is a tradition we hope to repeat for years to come,” said Hugh Keenan, principal of St. Margaret of Cortona School.
