Principal Rucinski's 10.22.21 message

Message from the Principal
October 22, 2021
Dear St. Mary's School Parents and Guardians,

Order your child's school pictures online!  Orders can still be placed online at using our school code: EVTB7KZPB.

Our October Dine to Donate will be at the Clifton Park Panera from 4-8PM.  Please consider supporting our school and take a night off from cooking!

Our school will celebrate Halloween on Friday, October 29th.  This is a Dress Down Day.  However, students are not permitted to dress in costume which includes: makeup, hair coloring or costume props.  Classroom parties will take place at the end of the day on Friday and will be coordinated by each homeroom teacher and classroom parents.

This morning we sent another test of our new emergency alert system.  You should have received a text and/or an email at approximately 10:30 AM.  If you did not receive this alert, please reach out to the main office.

Please support the PTO's 10K Raffle.  The top three selling families will receive an entire week of dress down days!  Any family who sold a ticket will also receive a dress down day.  The winning ticket will be drawn during Morning Meeting on November 5th.  You can purchase your tickets here.

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.

Mr. Matthew Rucinski
