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

      Yonkers, NY

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.

Dr. McNiff, Archdiocese of New York, Superintendent of Schools
Keep St. Casimir School Open!

      Many years ago my daughter attended a parroquial school all through her 9 years of elem. education including Kindergarten. I know how important it was for her to not have her education interrupted and to have such a warm relationship with schoolmates throughout her early education. I would like all small children to experience that as well and continue their education with the same self confidence and learning experience. My friend's daughter attends St. Casimir and it means so much to them too. The parents are working very hard to develop a sustaining plan for the school and I hope they will be given every opportunity to keep their school open and I support their efforts and dedication. I hope you too.

      i went to school there from 1984 to 1987 and it was a great school to be at to learn and grow. Many of my cousins and friends went to school there and i feel they all got the same great benefits the school had to offer.
