March 25th Program: The entire Greek School participates with patriotic songs and hymns along with dances, poems and skits on the “Dual Holiday” of the Annunciation and Greek Independence Day. This celebration is always celebrated on the Third Sunday of Lent and is proceeded by a Lenten luncheon

We also celebrate “Όχι Day” (October 28th), Christmas, The Three Hierarchs (January 30th) and the final day of classes, with smaller programs. The children recite and read poems and sing songs about these holidays.
