Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope you enjoyed your three day weekend. The weather was beautiful even with the rain.
Last Thursday Anna and Ben Fiala were Principals for the day. They enjoyed their time in the administrative role and worked very hard. At the end of our day together I asked my fellow principals what they enjoyed the most and what they learned about what a principal does.
Here are their responses:
Ben: The best part of my day was giving out awards at the assembly. I learned that being a principal is awesome.
Anna: The best part of my day was announcing the names at the awards assembly. I learned that Mrs. Wyles is very busy but still very fun.
Catholic Schools Week is just around the corner and we have wonderful plans for a beautiful week filled with faith, knowledge, service and the celebration of 120 years of bringing quality Catholic education to our community. We invite you to join us when you can, especially Sunday’s Open House, and enjoy your child’s and our school’s accomplishments. Each day is detailed on the last page of this newsletter.
On Tuesday, January 31st, 2017, Bishop Joe Vasquez will celebrate Mass with representatives of the Catholic Middle Schools in the Diocese of Austin. This Mass will honor 7th and 8th-grade students who will be recognized for their leadership and service at school and in the community.
It is my distinct pleasure to inform you that the following students from our Mighty Eighth Grade class have been selected by the faculty to receive this honor: Aidan Atkins, Paloma Navarro, Cate Barkis, Mason McHugh and Benjamin Boor. The event will be held at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Austin.
I will be finalizing the registration for PSIA contestants. The cost of the competition, per event, is $10.00. I will be sending home commitment letters this week. Please return the letter with payment to the office. Please indicate on the envelope PSIA. If you have questions let me know.
Have a wonderful week and thank you for all you do to support St. Mary’s Catholic School.
