Dear Parents and Guardians,
This Sunday is our first Family Mass of the year. Traditionally we gather, monthly, at one our many contributing parishes and celebrate the Eucharist as a school family. This Sunday at 11:00 we will be together at St. Mary’s. Our students will be responsible for all parts of the Mass. As well, students are asked to wear their school uniform. Our students are a beautiful sight and we want our parish to see this. Please do join us. You will be glad you did. It really is wonderful to be part of the St. Mary’s Catholic School community.
As the weather cools, YE HA, the students will be cooler in the classrooms. With the “historic” building in which we reside, there are some rooms cooler than others, beyond our control. That being said, it is a good idea for students to have their St. Mary’s fleece with them each day. This is the only cool weather apparel that they may wear in the classrooms or in the school. Outside they may wear what you choose to send them for warmth.
Thank you to all who are remembering to check in with the office and sign in when visiting the school, for whatever reason. Please also remember that if you would like to bring something to your child you may drop it off in the office and we will certainly deliver it. This includes schoolwork, lunches or sports bags. We ask that you do not go to your child’s classroom or locker as this may be disruptive to the students. If you have an appointment with your child’s teacher you are asked to let the office know so we can let the teacher know.
Safety of our children is of the utmost importance to us. Keeping this in mind, no child may
attend a St. Mary’s Sporting event without adult supervision.
Vision and hearing screenings will be the week of on October 24th for our Pre-K, K, 1, 3, 5, and 7. We are in need of parent volunteers. Please let Mrs. Stewart know if you can help. email@example.com
If you would be able to help in the cul de sac or morning care on Oct. 7th (Blessing of the Animals Day) please let me know. We would need help from 7:00 to 7:45 a.m. It is time to revisit the Strategic Plan for St. Mary’s Catholic School. Our Consultative School Board will head up this process with the full support and participation of the faculty and staff. If you would like to become part of the creation of our new plan please contact Mrs. Wyles. Your input is valuable.
Have a great week.
