The rest of the day the children and families enjoyed horse rides and other fun activities.
September 2022- On September 22, Saint Dominic’s Family Services hosted their annual Summerfest event at their Blauvelt campus to commemorate the conclusion of summer.

A special thanks goes out to all who planned the event and to those who set up everything around our campus. Another thanks goes out to all companies involved in providing food- NoCo Catering, Waffles and Dinges, Jiannetto’s Pizza & Catering and Carvel.
August 2022- The Friends of Saint Dominic’s has made a very generous donation to Saint Dominic’s Family Services in support of school safety in both our Rockland and Bronx Schools. This donation will be used to purchase and install lockdown systems in all classrooms. In addition, we will also have the support of school safety officers at all locations. There will also be enhanced door and lock systems as well as cameras and sound systems.
We are extremely grateful to Friends and our partnership in keeping our kids and school staff safe.
