Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

January 6, 2020

Note from the Principal

Good morning parents!

I hope you had a relaxing break with your loved ones. We have several very exciting events coming up in January, in particular Catholic Schools Week. I look forward to seeing many of you at the HSA meeting this Wednesday.

As we begin the second half of the year, I wanted to issue a reminder that per our handbook, teachers have 24 hours to respond to emails sent to their school email address. Teachers may not be able to respond immediately to emails due to the hands on and direct instruction that is expected and required of our wonderful staff. That being said, communication between home and school is essential to your child's academic success. If you have not received a response in that allotted time from a staff member, please let me know.

Have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Lewis
