Principal Rucinski's 9.18.20 message

Message from the Principal

"Reach each child, teach the whole child"
Dear St. Mary's School Parents and Guardians,

It's hard to exactly put into words how wonderful having your children back in school this week has been.  I think the picture above signs it up the best.  You can see the excitement of our new first graders getting a chance to run around the playground while teachers watched a sight none of us have seen in the past six months.  For me, this picture provides the opportunity to reflect on just how lucky we are to be able to have our students back on campus.

I am pleased to announce that our Lunch Program begins next Monday, September 21st.  The online order form can be found within this email as well as on my Virtual Office.

This morning at 9:30 AM, we will be gathering together for our Beginning of School Liturgy.  Our 8th graders will be assisting us in the church, while the rest of our school community will watch live from their classrooms.  The Eucharist will be delivered to the school following the liturgy.  I invite our entire community to view the mass by watching on our parish's YouTube channel.

Thank you for your continued trust and support.

Thank you for following our Health and Safety procedures.  The students have been absolutely wonderful with wearing their masks and practicing hand and respiratory hygiene.  We appreciate your support from home.

Please continue to get Health Checks for your children completed before 7:30 AM each day.  If you are dropping off in the morning, you can stay in your car and show your phone to the faculty member outside.

Nurse Ann needs physicals for students in Grades K,1,3,5 and 7.  Any physical completed since 9/14/20 is acceptable.
