Principal Rucinski's May 15th email message

Message from the Principal
May 15, 2020
Dear St. Mary's School Families,

I hope you are doing well and continuing to stay safe.  Seeing your children, albeit virtually, over the past few weeks has been a source of inspiration as we continue with our new and unfamiliar journey.

Please know that we are actively planning End of the Year activities that can safely and appropriately bring closure for our students and staff.  This would include graduation celebrations for our Pre-K, Kindergarten and 8th Grade students.  I  look forward to providing you with more updates in the coming weeks.

The month of May is usually an active one for tours and registrations of new St. Mary's families.  Along with everything else in our world right now, we must rethink how we continue to grow our community.  Included in this email is a Virtual Open House video that I ask you to share with any family who might be considering a St. Mary's education.  As always, any returning family who refers a new family will receive a discount on their next year's tuition.

Also in this email are two other pieces of information I'd like to share with you.  First, you will find the Academic and Grading Guidelines provided to our families from the Catholic Schools Office.  Please take note how each grade lelvel, including Specials, will be assessed.  The memo calls for our last day of collecting student work to be June 19, 2020.  Students who have not completed a subject area at that point will then have until July 8, 2020 to raise that grade. The other button below is a short survey for parents who have at least one student in grades 3-8.  This survey is part of our school's accreditation efforts and will help us learn how we are providing remote learning.

Finally, I'd like to invite your family to join us virtually on May 22nd at noon as we celebrate our Annual May Crowning.  You will receive more details on this virtual event next week.
