8th Grade students win gold in Window Painting Contest

Eighth Grade students Juliana Al-Ola and Jacqueline Kulaka represented St. Patrick Catholic Academy in the 65th Annual Halloween Window Painting Contest, painting the windows of Cathy’s Place diner with the original designs. Both girls won gold ribbons for their work. They will receive their medals tomorrow, November 28th, at a ceremony sponsored by the Bay Ridge Community Council.

Art teacher Jocine Geraci oversaw the work of these students, and could not be prouder. “The eighth grade girls represented our school and won gold medals! They used their artistic talent and original designs to create images that capture the spirit of Halloween and Fall season. They both worked very hard and took the task seriously. I am so happy they were recognized for such an achievement!”
