Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

Note from the Acting Principal

Happy Monday!


I hope you had a wonderful weekend!


The summer optional uniform starts today. You will find more information in the section below. Please ensure that clothing items properly fit your children before sending them to school wearing them.


We will have an awards ceremony this Friday, April 8th immediately following Holy Mass for students in Grades 4-8 on Honor Roll for the 3rd quarter.


The 80s Prom Gala planning committee has been working really hard to prepare a special event. Below you will find a flyer with information for the class baskets. Please help the school by supporting our biggest fundraiser of the year! For more information about the gala, visit https://stmaryum.org/gala/.


See the attached sponsor form below to advertise on our school calendar handbook and folders for the 2022-23 school year.


Have a blessed week!
