PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES ARE AROUND THE CORNER

Parent-Teacher Conferences can be booked starting this Monday, March 14th through the SCHOOL INTERVIEWS Website. This assessment period we will be offering a hybrid of in-person, phone call, and virtual meetings in order to meet family preferences.


Simply use the QR Code below OR click on the website above and use the event code: 67vhr in order to book a timeslot with the teacher(s) that you would like to meet with during the following times:


  • Tuesday, March 22nd from 3:30-5:30
  • Wednesday, March 23rd from 3:30-7:30


Once booked the Student Interviews Website allows you to pick an In-Person Meeting, Online Video Meeting or Phone Call Option for your time slot. We are looking forward to connecting with our families of STMY!


This week Teachers will be completing Report Card comments and assessments on Powerschool and they should be visible by Monday, March 21st.


We also wanted to bring to your attention that this past week your child will be reflecting on their “Evidence of Learning” in each of their courses. We would ask that this week you login, as your child, to each of their Google classrooms. In these classrooms, you will see specific activities/assessments that your child has reflected on, in which they have completed a “Student Learning Reflection” assignment for each of their classes. The goal of this assessment tool is designed so that you can have the opportunity to see their learning first hand and understand where they are, where they need to go, and how we can get there together.


Please sit with them as they allow you to have a window into their learning. Our hope is that the reflection that your child shares with you, will be valuable information for our upcoming Parent-Student-Teacher conferences.


Our teachers look forward to meeting with you and your child.


Yours in Christ,

St. Mary’s Staff

Sr. Boys and Girls Basketball compete at Zone Playoffs!

The Sr. Boys and Girls Basketball teams ended their seasons this weekend as they fought hard in the North East Zone Playoff Tournaments. Both teams were ranked number 1 going into their respective tournaments, with the Boys hosting Zones at STMY and the girls off to Elk Point.


In their first game the girls game came right down to the wire as they lost a close game 41-38 which put them in the bronze medal game. Their final game brought them some redemption though as they were victorious, taking home the 3rd place spot for the weekend.


The boys had an exciting game against the Marwayne Wildcats. Both teams battled back and forth with the Saints coming out on top. Nolan Dixson was the high scorer of the game with an incredible 45 points for the home team. Their second game was the Zone Final with the boys playing the E.H. Walter Trojans. The boys came out flat in the first quarter and were behind by 18 points right off the top. They scratched and clawed getting the score to within 6 points at one point of the game but were unable to close the gap, losing a heartbreaker in front of the home town fans and placing 2nd in the Zone.


We are so proud of the dedication of both teams, their coaches and their families that have supported them this season. It was an incredible building block year with many players returning to the teams next year. Congratulations to both teams on a phenomenal season!
