Principal Rucinski's 10.1.21 message

Message from the Principal

Dear St. Mary's School Parents and Guardians,

As we turn the calendar to October, students should return to wearing their dress uniforms on days that they don't have gym.  Polos are acceptable to be worn on days that we do not have mass.  

Meet the Teacher Night will look a little different this year.  Families in Grades 1-4 will receive an email with a video from their child's classroom teacher.  Middle School families are invited to a virtual Meet the Teacher Night on Monday, October 4th at 6PM.  You can access the zoom link by clicking here.  You can scroll down in this email for videos from our Specials teachers.

CYO Basketball (Grades 3-8) will return this year!  Information regarding tryouts will be posted next week.

Please remember to keep Division St. clear during dismissal time so that busses can pull up to the school.  Please share this information with anyone picking up your child who may not be familiar with our school.

IOWA and CoGAT testing for students in Grades 3-7 will begin next week.  Stay tuned for more information from your child's teacher.

In accordance with New York State guidelines, St. Mary's School may need to test our students to ensure that our school remains in-person this school year.  I ask that you read the letter regarding in-school testing and complete and return the student consent form.  I will be announcing if and when in-school testing will begin and no student will be tested without parental consent.

Please make sure your family has created a FACTS SIS account.  This will replace PowerSchool and will become the way you see your child's grade book, order lunches among other things.  Beginning this week, ordering lunch must be done through FACTS and we will no longer be sending out a google form.  Additionally, we will be testing our emergency notification system through FACTS SIS next week.

School Uniforms are available through our School Store.  Gym uniforms, school polos and our brand new quarter zips for Middle School students are now available.  If you would like an updated school uniform order form, you can access that by clicking here.  Some pieces are on backorder and we apologize for any delays.

Mr. Matthew Rucinski
