Petitioning Superintendent of Schools Dr. McNiff, Archdiocese of New York

Cardinal Dolan and Dr. Timothy McNiff, Archdiocese of New York: Keep St. Casimir School Open

Why should St. Casimir School remain open? Because it is a model Catholic school located in the inner city of Yonkers with an environment so unique that other schools should strive to emulate it.

Strengths of the school:
* Diverse student body
* Equality to which every student is treated
* Caring, dedicated teachers and staff

The student body doesn't have a majority population. The diversity reflects all racial, social and economic groups.

Racism and prejudice do not attend this school. Tolerance does and it has a perfect attendance record. If this school is closed, it is a step backwards in the civil rights movement.

Many of the students live in the low-income underserved neighborhood where the school is located. Many are first generation Americans, all wanting a better life for their children.

We need you to stand-up for the children of St. Casimir! Let St. Casimir School remain open to continue its 100 year tradition of providing a quality education to children in Pre-Kindergarten 3 to grade 8.

If you can make a financial donation please send it to:  St. Casimir School, 259 Nepperhan Ave, Yonkers, NY 10701 or using PayPal it can be sent to:

This is a restricited donation--to be used solely to save St. Casimir School. Should we not be successful in our efforts we will return all donations. Thank you for your support.
