Ἀγαπητοί ἐν Χριστώ ἀδελφοί,

Δράττομαι τῆς εὐκαιρίας ἐπί τῃ ἐνάρξῃ τῆς νέας σχολικής χρονιάς, διά νά εὐχηθώ στους γονείς καί στους μικρούς μαθητάς μάς Καλήν ἀρχή καί καλή σταδιοδρομία στό χώρο τῆς Ἐλληνικής Παιδείας και τῆς ἐκπαιδεύσεως, γενικότερα.

Ὁ ἐφετινός Ἀγιασμός θα πραγματοποιηθεί το Σάββατο, 19 Σεπτεμβρίου και ὤρα 10πμ.

Ὑπενθυμίζουμε δε, ὄτι τά μαθήματα στό Σαββατιανό Ἐλληνικό Σχολείο τοῦ Ι. Ν. Μεταμορφώσεως Κορώνας παρέχονται ἄνευ διδάκτρων, ἔτσι ὤστε περισσότερες Ἐλληνικές οἰκογένειες νά μπορέσουν νά ἀπολαύσουν τά ὠφελήματα τῆς Ἐλληνικής Παιδείας και τοῦ μακραίωνου Ἐλληνικού Πολιτισμού μάς.

Διά τῆς παρούσης, θά ἤθελα, νά σάς παρουσιάσω τή νέα διευθύντρια τοῦ Σαββατιανού Ἐλληνικοῦ Σχολείου τοῦ Ι. Ν. Μεταμορφώσεως Κορώνας, την κα Ἀννα Λεμονής. Η κα Λεμονής ἔχει σπουδάσει στό University of Luton τῆς Ἀγγλίας καί ἔχει Master of Art- Applied Linguistics (TEFL), ἐνώ διαθέτει πολυετή πείρα ώς δασκάλα στά Ἐλληνοαμερικανικά σχολεία τοῦ Ἀγίου Νικολάου Flushing, τοῦ Τιμίου Σταυρού Whitestone, τοῦ Ἀγίου Δημητρίου Jamaica, καθώς καί στό William Cullen Bryant High School.

Εὐχόμεθα ἀπό βάθους καρδίας καλή ἐπιτυχία στήν κα Λεμονής, ἐνώ εἴμεθα βέβαιοι πώς θ’ ἀνταποκριθεί με μεγίστη ἐπιτυχία στό σημαντικό ἐγχείρημα, πού ἀναλαμβάνει στό Σχολείο μας.

Κλείνοντας, θά ἤθελα να σάς ἐκφράσω τίς εὐχαριστίες διά τήν συνεχή σάς ὑποστήριξη τῆς πρωτοβουλίας μάς καί νά σάς καλέσω νά ἐκμεταλλευθείτε τήν προσφορά αὐτήν τῆς Κοινότητός μας. Τό Σαββατιανό Ἐλληνικό Σχολείο τοῦ Ι.Ν. Μεταμορφώσεως Κορώνας ἔχει ἀνοίξει τήν στοργική ἀγκάλη του, προκειμένου να ὑποδεχθεί τά παιδιά μάς, τά ὀποία ἀποτελούν τό λαμπρό μέλλον τῆς Κοινότητός μάς.

Μετὰ τῆς ἐν Κυρίῳ ἀγάπης

TENANT ALTERATIONS
11.1 During the Term of this Lease TENANT, utilizing the AUTHORITY, at its sole cost and expense, shall be permitted to undertake alterations and improvements (“Tenant Alterations”) to the Premises with such Tenant Alterations being further defined in Tenant’s Scope of Work which TENANT will provide LANDLORD prior to any commencement of the Tenant Alterations.. Prior to TENANT undertaking any Tenant Alterations TENANT shall deliver a set of detailed plans and specifications to LANDLORD outlining the work to be performed in connection with the Tenant Alterations (“Tenant’s Initial Plans”). Tenant’s Initial Plans shall be subject to the prior approval of LANDLORD, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. TENANT shall not commence the Tenant Alterations until (i) Tenant’s Initial Plans have been submitted to LANDLORD and LANDLORD has approved same; and (ii) TENANT has obtained and submitted to LANDLORD copies of all governmental permits and approvals required for their commencement and prosecution.

11.2 During the period of Tenant Alterations LANDLORD shall, without delay, make the Premises and all other spaces within the Building which TENANT reasonably requires access to available to TENANT, its agents, employees, servants and contractors. LANDLORD agrees: (i) to reasonably cooperate with TENANT’s contractors and servants for the purpose of undertaking the completion of the Tenant Alterations; and (ii) it shall not have access or use of the Building until such time as TENANT completes its Tenant Alterations. During the period of the Tenant Alterations LANDLORD shall have use of the Play Yard in accordance with LANDLORD’s Use of the Play Yard as defined in Section 1.3 herein.

11.3 LANDLORD shall complete its review of Tenant’s Initial Plans within fifteen (15) days of submission by TENANT. The parties agree that in the event LANDLORD shall fail to either approve or deny Tenant’s Initial Plans within the fifteen (15) day period, then on the sixteenth (16th) day TENANT shall be permitted to give LANDLORD an additional notice and ten (10) day opportunity to approve or deny Tenant’s Initial Plans. If LANDLORD shall fail to approve or deny Tenant’s Plans within such additional ten (10) day period, Tenant’s Initial Plans shall be deemed approved by LANDLORD. This process shall pertain to any submission made by TENANT to LANDLORD regarding Tenant’s Initial Plans. In the event LANDLORD shall breach this provision and/or fail to reasonably cooperate with TENANT pursuant to Section 11.2 herein, TENANT, upon twenty (20) days written notice to LANDLORD, may terminate this Lease.

11.4 In addition to the Tenant Alterations as defined in Sections 11.1-11.3 herein, during the Term hereof (including, but not limited to the Option Term) TENANT, at its sole cost and expense, may make alterations, decorations, installations, additions and improvements. TENANT may erect signs inside and outside the Premises; provided, however, TENANT will not install or maintain any signs in or on the Premises except in accordance with applicable law. Except for Tenant Alterations which are purely decorative or cosmetic (for example, painting, installing or removing wall covering, floor covering or cabinetry), any Tenant Alterations shall require prior notice to, and consent of, LANDLORD, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. LANDLORD shall not be required to consent to Tenant Alterations which (i) involve a structural change to the Premises; (ii) affect the exterior, roof or structural elements of the Premises; or (iii) adversely affect the operation of the building systems of the Premises. TENANT agrees to restore the Premises to good order and repair upon the removal of any of Tenant’s Alterations normal wear and tear excepted.

11.5 Tenant Alterations which require LANDLORD’s consent shall be made in accordance with detailed plans and specifications approved by LANDLORD. No Tenant Alteration which requires LANDLORD’s consent shall be commenced until (i) such plans and specifications have been submitted to LANDLORD and LANDLORD has approved same; (ii) TENANT has obtained and submitted to LANDLORD copies of all governmental permits and approvals required for their commencement and prosecution; and (iii) TENANT has submitted to LANDLORD a list of all architects, contractors and subcontractors who have been engaged to perform the Tenant Alterations.

11.6 During the performance of any Tenant Alterations which require LANDLORD’s consent, TENANT agrees that it will require each of its contractors and subcontractors (other than its own employees or those of affiliated governmental agencies) to: (a) maintain liability insurance (naming LANDLORD as additional insureds and supply LANDLORD proof evidencing same) and workers’ compensation insurance; and (b) carry such insurance with reputable insurance companies authorized to do business in the State of New York at levels of coverage and with deductibles as are commercially prudent and reasonably satisfactory to LANDLORD.

11.7 During the progress of any Tenant Alterations which require LANDLORD’s consent, the work shall be subject to inspection by representatives of LANDLORD, at no cost to TENANT, upon at least forty-eight (48) hours prior written notice (except in the case of an emergency), but this shall create no obligation of LANDLORD to inspect or to assure the proper performance of any Tenant Alterations, nor shall any such inspection by LANDLORD be deemed to be an approval or warranty by LANDLORD of the quality, integrity or workmanship such Tenant Alterations.

11.8 If any mechanic’s or materialman’s lien is filed against the Premises or the Building for work performed on behalf of TENANT or anyone claiming under TENANT, or for materials furnished to TENANT or anyone claiming under TENANT, said mechanic’s or materialman’s lien shall be bonded or discharged by TENANT within ninety (90) days thereafter, at TENANT’s expense.

TENANT agrees that it shall not exercise such right to cancel this Lease until it has given such written notice of such act or omission to the holder of each superior mortgage whose name and address shall have previously been furnished to TENANT in writing. Each superior mortgagee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to cure any such act or omission on the part of LANDLORD during the same time period that LANDLORD has the right to cure such act or omission as provided for in this Lease.

33.2 If any provision of this Lease or the application thereof to any person or circumstance, for any reason and to any extent, is invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease and the application of that provision to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected but rather shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law provided that the application of this the foregoing shall not diminish TENANT’s right to use the Premises for TENANT’s intended purpose in substantially the same manner as prior to such application.
