Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

March 14, 2022

Note from the Acting Principal

Happy Monday!


I hope you had a wonderful weekend!


Thank you for supporting our spring Book Fair! We were able to raise enough money to purchase the information database for our students to use as a virtual research tool. Way to go!


Next week is SMA Spirit Week! Celebrate with us by participating in our daily out-of-uniform days. The cost is $10 per student for the week. We are also having a Lenten Food Drive from March 21st-25th. See the flyer below.


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.


We will no longer have replacement masks onsite. If your child is wearing a mask, please make sure they have extras in their backpack.


Have a blessed week!

Mrs. Hannah Ruckstuhl
