The end of the school year was a busy time for students at Saint Leo the Great School. Graduation ceremonies were held for the school’s preschool, kindergarten and eighth grade students. The school community bid a fond farewell to the 62 members of the eighth grade graduating class, many of whom had been students at the school since preschool. The graduates will go on to attend high school at Christian Brothers Academy, Trinity Hall, Saint John Vianney High School, Red Bank Catholic, and two Monmouth County Vocational Schools.

The school’s PTA organized Field Day for students in grades 1 to 7 on Tuesday, June 12. Students competed in a school-favorite game of Snowball Castle, played on inflatable bounce houses, and enjoyed extended recess time on a beautiful late spring day.

Students also organized a year-end fundraiser to support Catholic Charities in their efforts to prepare local students for the next school year by donating school supplies.

Seventh grade students Sophia Almeida of Colts Neck and Ella Doherty of Lincroft enjoy Field Day.
