|Dear St. Mary's School Parents and Guardians,
With great excitement, I ask you to save the dates for two of our school's annual fundraisers that will be making a return this school year. This year's Parents Prom will be held the evening of June 4th at the Franklin Plaza. The 18th Annual L. Scott Cuomo Golf Tournament will return to Van Patten Golf Course on June 24th. More information on both of these great community events will be forthcoming.
At both of these events, we will be recognizing our St. Mary's School Sponsors. We have been so fortunate to provide a safe environment for in-person learning for our families this entire school year. However, doing so has come at a great financial cost. Our St. Mary's School Sponsors play a very important role in maintaining the academic excellence that our school is known for. I would like to invite our families and supporters in the community to consider sponsoring our school. Please take a moment to read my letter to potential sponsors and share this electronic response form with any business who might be willing to support St. Mary's School.
In our continued efforts to keep the cost of a St. Mary's education affordable for all families, any sponsorships secured by a St. Mary's family will result a tuition credit for the upcoming school year. More details on this will be shared in the near future. Thank you for your consideration and your support of St. Mary's School.
I would like to provide you with a few updates and reminders below:
Report card links have been emailed this morning. Please reach out to the office if you did not receive your student's link. Reports from Mrs. Roberts will be sent out on Monday. Great work by all of our students during the third quarter!
Due to a lack of emergency days used, we will not be in session on Friday, May 28th. We hope our families have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
The forms for health examinations that NYS requires have changed. Please use this new NYS Health Examination form for your children's regular physicals. Additionally, please use the Health and Dental Examinations form provided by Nurse Ann.
Please consider purchasing tickets for the school's May Calendar Raffle. All proceeds benefit the Penny Fund, which provides tuition assistance to St. Mary's families.
St. Mary's School will be participating in New York State Testing this year. Students in Grades 3, 5 and 7 will be participating in Session 1 of both the ELA and Math exams. Please see attached note from the Catholic Schools Office explaining this decision.
Thank you for your continued trust and support.
Mr. Matthew Rucinski
