Dear Parents and Guardians,
Happy Valentine’s Day to you. Wishing you a very sweet day
As we move into February our plans for the 2017-2018 school year have already begun to take shape. With the new year, will come change. The first news I will share with you is a note from Mrs. Quintana: My family is excited to share that we are moving to Corpus Christi this summer. My husband has recently retired from the military, and we have always wanted to be near the water. It is a sad year as we leave St. Mary's and the many friends we have made here, but we look forward to what God has planned for us there.
Please join me in wishing Mrs. Quintana and her family the best as they begin their new life in Corpus Christi and please keep them in your prayers. We thank Mrs. Quintana for her love and dedication to St. Mary’s Catholic School, her students, fellow faculty and staff and the community. We will miss all the Quintana’s.
I am excited to share with you that Mrs. Bullock will move into the fourth-grade teacher position next year. She will be perfect to assume the role of fourth grade. Her love for her students and her commitment to St. Mary’s Catholic School has shown brightly this year.
Next year our two fifth grade classes will be ascending the steps to Middle School. Because of the double class size, I will be hiring a Middle School 6th grade homeroom teacher. I have posted the job on the school and Diocesan websites. This new teacher will either teach Religion or History. These are options that will depend on the applicants’ qualifications.
Our Spanish program will also see change. Elementary Spanish will begin in Kindergarten and culminate in Grade 5 with Mrs. Baxter. The Spanish classroom will be on the first floor. Middle School Spanish will become its own program with a new teacher. This job position has also been posted. As well, a new Spanish program will be purchased, to ensure students are challenged at each grade level. At this time I am working with the Diocese to research possible publishers.
I will continue to update you on news for next year as it becomes concrete. If you have questions please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for all you support.
