Dear St. Mary's School Parents and Guardians,

Order your child's school pictures online!  Orders can still be placed online at mylifetouch.com 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.

Sincerely,
Mr. Matthew Rucinski

Dear St. Mary's School Parents and Guardians,

What a great start to the school year!  Thank you for sharing your children with us each day.

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.


You may have noticed that our Fall Open House was initially scheduled for next week.  This event will be rescheduled for a later date.  More information will be forthcoming.

The first PTO meeting of the year will be held on Monday, September 20th at 6:30 in the Parish Hall.  Are you looking to volunteer this year?  Come learn about all the ways you can get involved.

PTO will be selling beautiful large mums tomorrow, Saturday, September 18th staring at 8:30 AM.  Mums are $15 each and will be sold in front of the Parish Hall.  Thank you for supporting school fundraisers!


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.  We will be testing our emergency notification system through FACTS SIS next week.

School Lunch Program will return on Monday, September 20th. Ordering must be done through FACTS. 

You may have noticed that Papa Joe has not been patrolling his corner this week.  He is currently recovering from a medical condition.  The students sent cards to him this morning and we continue to pray for his recovery each day. 


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.

Sincerely,
Mr. Matthew Rucinski
