End of School year at St. Sava Serbian Language School

School year 2016-2017 at St. Sava Serbian Language School concluded on Sunday, June 4th, 2017, with a wonderful program students prepared.

The year started in September 2016 with 60 children attending five classes, divided by age and present proficiency in Serbian language. The classes commence with the youngest preschool age kids and go all the way to the oldest, near-adulthood students. During the year, studies centered around anything and everything Serbian, from traditional kids’ songs and games, to Cyrillic letters and grammar, to the literary work analysis by classical Serbian authors.

The program wrapping up 2016-2017 school year presented a famous poem by Laza Kostic, “Santa Maria Della Salute,” a musical program, a skit “Deda i repa” and a two-act theatrical play, Our Class, which the students created and presented themselves.

The teachers, Silvija Jakovljevic, Milica Dozic, Mira Martinovic, Aleksandra Stefanovic and Ivana la Terza, are very proud of all the work the children and their parents have put up for the success of the school.

St. Sava Serbian School motto—it is all about the community: community engagement and work together, a sense of belonging and care for each other, which enhances everyone’s happiness and sense of worth.

Patronal Feast Day Celebration in Seattle

On the Seventh Sunday after Pascha, parishioners of St. Sava Church in Seattle celebrated their Patronal Feast Day- Transfer of the Relics of St. Sava. Episcopal Dean, Very Rev. Vidoslav Vujasin from Portland served the Divine Liturgy together with parish priest Rev. Zoran Aleksic. After reading of the Holy Gospel, addressing the faithful, Fr. Vidoslav spoke of the High Priestly Prayer of Jesus and about our role in the Church as God’s chosen.

Festive Liturgy was attended by Orthodox faithful from Seattle and few families from Portland who came for Slava celebration with their priest. After the traditional Slava Procession around the Church, the prayer for the departed founders and stewards of the Church was read, and then Fr. Serafim from the Church of Holy Protection from Seattle blessed and cut the Kolac (Slava Bread) wishing everyone blessed and happy Slava. The Slava Kumovi, Nenad and Branka Vujic, with their children Tajana and Daniel, have prepared a festive and delicate Slava lunch for everyone.

This joyful and sunny day in Seattle was embellished by performance of the orchestra and choir of the youngest participants of the Church School, as well as the parish folklore group “Bozuri”. After the program, Svirci, a bend from our parish, played a selection of traditional Serbian songs until late afternoon and contributed to the remembrance of this day for a long time.

School of Serbian Language

Упис у школу српког језика и први час је у Недељу 18. 9. 2016. Такође биће одржан родитељски састанак који ће почети после недељног ручка.

На часовима се говори искључиво српски и жеља је да деца науче наше писмо, побољшају знање језика и да се старија деца упознају са српском књижевношћу. Такође, наша деца одрастају у доста неуобичајеном српско-америчком окружењу и за њихово самопоуздање и психолошки развој је веома битно да се упознају и друже са сличним вршњацима. Инструктори имају вишегодишње искуство у подучавању и раду са децом.

Иницијативе као ова доста су значајне за малу заједницу као што је наша у држави Вашингтон. Надам се да ћете то препознати и својим одзивом повећати број ђака и омогућити школи српског језика да се трајно установи као активност која ће обогатити културни живот наше заједнице овде.

Часови се одржавају сваке друге недеље у цркви са почетком око 11 сати (после Светог Причешћа) у учионицама на спрату (улаз из задњег дела главне дворане цркве). Прво полугодиште почиње половином септембра, а друго почетком фебруара.

Деца су подељена у четри групе:
1. млађа 6**-8
2. средња 9-12
3. старија 13 и старији
4. српски 101 – за све који не разумеју српски
** деца која су напунила 5 год. и кренула у киндергарден могу да се упишу у најмлађу групу

За упис у школу и додатне информације можете да контактирате дипломираног филолога Миру Мартиновић (miramartinovic@hotmail.com) и такође можете погледати фејсбук страницу цркве.
