PROSPECT HEIGHTS – Currents News is set to feature an hour-long special titled “School Year in Review,” celebrating the achievements and milestones of students and educators across Brooklyn and Queens.

Scheduled to air on Friday, June 14, at 7 p.m., the special will be hosted by Currents News anchor Christine Persichette. This event marks a special kickoff to Summer 2024, reflecting on memorable moments both inside and outside the classroom.

Among the featured stories is the inspiring journey of a Brooklyn family who chose a Catholic school due to its expanded inclusive classrooms. Additionally, viewers will learn about a Queens academy that achieved a remarkable 20% increase in enrollment this year.

Highlighting the academic prowess and artistic talent within Catholic schools, the program will showcase a profile on a Grammy Award-winning musician who also excels as the Class of 2024 valedictorian.

A poignant moment in the special includes a heartfelt message from the mother of Blessed Carlo Acutis, soon to be canonized as the first millennial saint, directed to a specific student.

The special aims to spotlight diversity and inclusion, featuring a visit to a Catholic school that exemplifies the vibrant cultural tapestry of the “Diocese of Immigrants,” contrasting with challenges faced by elite NYC public schools in achieving similar diversity.

Deacon Kevin McCormack, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn, expressed enthusiasm about the special, stating, “‘School Year in Review’ gives us the opportunity to share the transformative impact of Catholic education in our communities. It’s a testament to our rich history, our relevance today, and the hope we nurture for future leaders.”
