Classroom Christmas Parties (K-7) will take place on December 22nd at 10:30 AM. Thank you to our PTO and classroom parents for making this an enjoyable day for both our teachers and students.
Once again, we will be offering an electronic option to provide a Christmas gift card for a St. Mary's faculty member. This is a great way to appreciate faculty members who may not receive a gift from their homeroom. Families may opt to do individual gifts, as always. There is no wrong way to show our wonderful staff some Christmas love! Click here to give an electronic gift to a faculty member.
We will have a Christmas Concert this year! Our Band and Chorus students will perform in the Parish Hall on Thursday, December 16th. This will be livestreamed on our school's YouTube channel. Additionally, all of our students will perform holiday songs that will be recorded and shared.
We are excited to offer a Terrarium Class next week. Students in Grades 4-7 will have their class on Tuesday, December 14th in the Parish Hall. Students in Grades K-3 will have their class on Wednesday, December 15th in the STEM Lab. Thank you to Kelly Atkinson for organizing this fun activity for our students.
Please make sure your child comes to school with boots on snowy days. Our weather policy is that students are able to go outside for recess as long as the wind-chill is above 20 degrees.
Sincerely, Mr. Matthew Rucinski
