To the Graduating Class of 2019/2020

You left Josyf Cardinal Slipyj School with a great deal of wisdom and memories. Your learning will continue for many more years as you approach high school, college, and university.  Wherever you path leads, continue to work hard and persevere, smile and maintain a positive attitude, and be the best person you can be.  Above all, never forget who you are, where you came from, especially your Ukrainian Heritage and Eastern Rite Traditions.  Use this knowledge to guide your future.


Throughout your busy years at Josyf Cardinal Slipyj School you have heard our school patron’s motto, “Per Aspera ad Astra” – Through Hardship to the Stars”.   You have worked hard through the years at Josyf Cardinal Slipyj, and some of them may have been quite difficult.  As you graduate this year, you will be the stars of the school.  Most importantly, you will be the stars in your parent’s and teacher’s hearts.   Remember to take this motto with you wherever you go and continue to work hard so that you can reach your own stars.
You are also the only class that has lived through a World Wide Pandemic.  You have all been troopers all the way, social and physical distancing, learning through Google Classroom, and staying safe and healthy throughout all of this.  Stay resilient, stay positive, and above all, stay determined. 
Even though some of you will be taking different paths, your Faith keeps you all united and part of God’s family.  You will all be missed. May God bless you all!
Ms. Iwasykiw
