Moving-Up 2011!

On Friday, May 27th at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, the second HPOCP Commencement was held. Six  children; Ayden Beaton, Panagiota Duka, Sophia Gebrial, Eirene Halas, Maximus Hambos and Misail Papadopoulos are moving on to Kindergarten in September and our five younger students, Alexis Binikos, Mark Gebrial, Nicholas Henry, Luma Rowashda and Athena Skarlis will be continuing with preschool in the fall.  Parents and guests were treated to an evening of entertainment by our students, food and fellowship.  The last day of school, one filled with so many different emotions, was met with an excitement over what lies ahead for our students.  Armed with determination and the knowledge that God is with them always, our children are more than prepared to meet the challenges that await them.  We wish them all God’s blessings.
