Polish Bilingual Day

In the Polish School of St. John Paul II, we celebrated the Polish Bilingual Day, which is a continuation of the action “We speak Polish in our home!”

The Polish Bilingual Day makes parents and educators aware that they are mainly responsible and privileged to pass the Polish language on to children raised outside Poland. Such an undertaking was necessary to remind Polish families living abroad of how important the mother language is and what powerful capital it can constitute for the future of the young generation born outside the country.

Please discuss this content with your children

Dear Parents,

We wish to ask for your assistance in helping our school community with an issue that we have been experiencing recently. There is currently a TikTok challenge that is asking students to vandalize school bathrooms and destroy school property. Unfortunately, some students have been participating in this challenge. During classes in Polish School, two soap containers in the boys’ bathroom were damaged. The cost of such a container is approximately $150.00.

Please talk to your children and emphasize the importance of students respecting school property. Participation in such conduct will result in disciplinary action and the parents will be charged for the repairs.

Thank you for your help. We believe that this will never happen again.
