Note from the Principal

Good afternoon!


Thank you for your patience with this week's newsletter. If you have not already seen the COVID-19 update letter sent out this afternoon, please check your email and let me know if you have any questions. As always, thank you for your partnership in keeping your child home when sick, encouraging good hygiene practices, and getting tested as needed. We will continue to pray for the end of this pandemic and the health and safety of all in our community.


A HUGE thank you to the HSA for an amazing Trunk or Treat event. It was a wonderful time!


This week is the last week of the 1st quarter. We will be distributing report cards via PlusPortals next week for grades 1-8 and parent/teacher conferences for all grades will be held next Thursday November 11th. Please look for a sign up link in the next few days.


Have a great week!

SMA Buddy Volunteer- We have 73 new families - so exciting and we want to make sure we help families navigate and learn our school. We need volunteers for all grades, please find attached! If you are interested, it is a great way to earn hours through the HSA. Our first buddy meeting will happen by Zoom on November 3. Zoom link will be provided at a later time.


Yard Sale- On November 6, 2021, HSA is hosting our 1st Yard Sale event at St. Mary of the Assumption from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Are you looking for more space in the garage? Do you have items you are looking to put up for sale? Is your significant other asking you to downsize? Do you have friends or family that are looking to sell their items? Then this is the place. It is $15 for 1 parking spot and $25 for 2 parking spots. There will be a $5 per table charge.
